Reasons Your Electric Hot Water System Is Not Working

Do you have an electric hot water system that you’ve noticed isn’t working quite as well as it should be? If you’re stuck trying to figure out what went wrong and why your electric hot water system isn’t working, we’re here to help. There could be a few reasons for a broken or faulty hot water system. It may be something you can fix on your own, or it may unfortunately be something a little more serious that calls for a professional. The good news is that Hello Plumbing are here to help! We’re a local Sydney plumbing company that can help with any plumbing issues you have! 


The first thing to check is if the breaker switch on your electric hot water system has been tripped. You should be able to tell if this is the case by just looking at the switch, but if not, you can double-check this by simply flicking the switch back on and seeing if that solves the issue. In a perfect world, this will solve the issue, but unfortunately, it oftentimes will be something more major. 


On the other end of the spectrum is one of the biggest issues, a leaking hot water tank. If this is the case, you’ll more than likely need a full system replacement. If you think this might be your issue, give our team a call and we can help you arrange everything you need. 


If the issue is neither of these, or you’re not exactly sure what it is, then it may be more complicated to solve. We recommend you give our team a call at 1300 30 30 55 and we’ll send out our plumbing experts to investigate the issue, find the problem and find an easy and cost-effective solution for you.
