Posted by Ali Tariq on February 25th, 2021

If you live in a cold area, you need to install hot water plumbing systems in your homes. Whenever you enter your washroom for the shower, you need the hot water as it is very difficult to shower with cold water in the winter season. Taking a shower with the cold water in the winter can also create some health issues.

Besides providing hot water for the shower, it also helps people wash clothes, dishes and even their hands and face. Therefore, these systems get more importance in the winter. If you have installed this system in your homes, it may also create some problems for you. That is why you need to take care of them, and whenever you feel some problem in the systems, you need to get the services of experienced plumbers to solve the issues.

Now the questions arise that how you know your systems are in bad condition, and what are the common problems with these systems? This article will briefly discuss the common hot water issues and how to solve those issues. 

Water doesn’t heat up within a seconds

Many people all over the country prefer installing instant geysers in their homes. There are many benefits of installing these systems in the homes as it saves a lot of gas and provides the hot water whenever a person needs. On the other hand, the ordinary hot water systems waste a lot of gas, and people need to switch them an hour before they need water.

If you have installed an instant geyser but don’t get hot water when you take a shower, the instant geyser is useless. You should realise at that time that your geyser has some issues. This usually happens when the faucet is far away from the water heater system. If this problem happens because of the distance between faucet and water heater, there is no problem for you as you can brush your teeth till the cold water pass. After that, you can enjoy your shower with the hot water.

It can also happen due to the low pressure of the gas. In that case, you need to call the experienced hot water repair worker in your town. He will check the pipes and the geyser to know the root cause of the problem. After that, he may change the faulty part or repair it.

Hot water doesn’t come after some showers

A good hot water plumbing systems provide hot water without any disruption and people can enjoy hot water whenever they need. But when the heater is not in good condition, it can create many problems for people. 

In case you have a big family and have installed only one hot water system in your home, you may realise that after some showers the water heater stops heating the water. People who take a shower at the end have to take it with the cold water, or they don’t take a shower due to this problem.

This is a very common problem with many kinds of geysers. Some instant geysers cause this problem because of the low gas pressure, or their heating systems don’t work properly, especially when their life-time has ended. Other heaters can create this problem when their water tanks are small.

If you have an instant geyser, and facing this problem, you should change it as it life could have been ended. If you have the ordinary heaters, you can solve the problem by installing a larger tank.

Low water pressure

Low water pressure is not a common problem that many people face, but the people who face this know it is very frustrating. They have to wait for the tub to fill or take a shower with the low pressure.

This problem happens due to different reasons. The first common reason for the problem is the partially closed valves. Sometimes the valves are partially closed, and people don’t know about them. Another reason for this issue is an unidentified leak in the pipes. The hot water goes through those pipes, and you get a very low pressure.

An experienced hot water plumbing professional can solve this problem by inspecting all the pipes and valves. To prevent this problem, you need to ask the plumber to check all hot water pipes whether they are in the perfect condition or not. If they are not in good condition, you need repair them or replace them with the new ones.
