DIY Quick Tips from the Hot Water Specialists
IF WATER IS COLD
- Electric systems: Check switch/circuit breaker is on at the switch board. Check to see if fuse is intact, if not replace fuse.
- Gas systems: Is gas on at the heater? Check pilot light is lit, if not follow instruction on heater cover to relight.
- Solar systems: Is it a cloudy or rainy day? Solar hot water systems do not heat on rainy or overcast days,even in the middle of summer.

IF THE OVERFLOW IS DRIPPING OR RUNNING
It is normal for the overflow to drip while heating. If it is dripping continually,gently ease the relief valve trigger at your water heater. This may dislodge any particles causing it to leak. Ease valve at least every 6 months for a few seconds to clear any build up.
If it continues to leak despite this, call Brent on 0414853499
Turn water off at water heater. An isolating tap should be located on the pipe going to the bottom of the system.Turn power/gas off to the system and call Brent on 0414853499
