How often should a water heater be serviced?

How often should a water heater be serviced?

Our hot water systems work day and night and it is easy for us to forget about a service until an issue arises. Like other appliances, your hot water system requires regular maintenance to ensure trouble-free operation. It also prevents your tank from rupturing prematurely and reduces the risk of a damaged system driving up a hefty water and electricity bill. 


Services are dependent on the different types of hot water systems on the market, so consult with our experienced Sydney plumbing team. A minor hot water system service is generally recommended every 6-12 months and major services every 5 years. Particularly if you live in an area in Sydney with harsh water, a minor service is recommended.


Signs you may need to get your hot water system serviced:

  • No hot water
  • A leak from the hot water system
  • Unusual noise
  • Fluctuating temperature
  • Sediment build-up in water
  • Aging


If you notice any of these signs it may be time for a service or your system may need replacing. We highly recommend you give our team a call to identify the issue and resolve it quickly and efficiently. With appropriate knowledge and tools, our qualified Sydney plumbing specialists will know what’s best.
