No Hot Water - Help!

When your water stops working it can be frustrating and a major inconvenience, so we've put together these helpful steps on how to get your hot water cylinder back up and running!

Step 1: Check the Power

The first thing to check is whether or not the hot water cylinder is receiving power. Make sure the circuit breaker for the cylinder is turned on and hasn't tripped. If it has, reset the breaker and see if that solves the problem. If the breaker trips again, this could indicate a more serious electrical issue that requires the attention of a licensed electrician. Call us if you notice any issues with your breaker or wiring in and around your hot water cylinder.

Step 2: Inspect the Cylinder

If the power is not the issue, check the hot water cylinder itself. Look for any signs of damage or wear and tear, such as leaks, cracks, or rust. If you notice any water leaking from your hot water cylinder, it's best to contact a licensed plumber who can assess the situation and make necessary repairs.

Step 3: Contact a Professional

If you've checked the power and inspected the cylinder and still can't determine the problem, it's time to contact a professional. If there are no obvious signs of a leak the problem is most likely electrical. An experienced electrician will be able to diagnose the issue and recommend the best course of action. It's important to choose a licensed professional with a good reputation to ensure the problem is resolved safely and effectively.

Step 4: Preventative Maintenance

Once your hot water cylinder is back up and running it's worth conduting preventative maintenance, which can help you avoid those initial hot water cylinder problems. Regular inspections and servicing can identify and fix minor issues before they become major problems, potentially saving you time and money in the long run.

In summary, if your hot water cylinder stops working and you see water contact a plumber, if there is no water contact an electrician. Ascend Electrical are here for all your hot water cylinder needs and understand the importance of a speedy response.
