Do You Charge A Flat Call-Out Fee?

Unlike the majority of our competitors, we do not charge you just to come out and have a look at the Hot Water System, we only charge a call-out fee if there is work to be done, whether that be repair work or a replacement hot water system if the existing one can’t be fixed.

There may be no need to replace the system if the problem is due to a faulty component

Best Price Hot Water can diagnose the problem and organise a more cost-effective solution to not stress your wallet!

Troubleshooting Your Hot Water System

At Best Price Hot Water, we can help with professional hot water repairs and installations – if you’re having trouble with your hot water system, it’s worth checking out our troubleshooting guide below to see if you might be able to fix the problem yourself before calling us out.

For Electric Hot Water Systems & Gas Hot Water Systems

Think you’re in need of a Hot Water Repair? Before you book a Hot Water Service, make sure that you check through the following troubleshooting tips below!

No Hot Water
Check that the isolating switch – generally found in the switchboard and often marked “Hot Water’, ‘HWS’ or ‘Water Heater’ – is in the ON position. Check that the electricity supply to the hot water system is connected. If connected to off-peak heating, hours are restricted. Also, check the switchboard fuse.

Twin Element Systems
For a twin element hot water system to operate as designed, it must have power available to the top heating unit circuit at all times.
So make sure the power is connected and on.

TPR Valve (Temperature Relief) Leaking
While it is normal for this valve to discharge a small amount of water while heating if it does leak more than 10 litres of water a day, there may be another problem. If it is continuously running, try raising or turning the leaver/knob gently on the TPR valve for a few seconds and then releasing it. This may dislodge any foreign matter which may be in the line. If it continues to leak, please contact us for a service call.

Cold Water Leaking
Is water leaking from the expansion valve (located in the cold water line to the hot water heater)? It’s normal for this valve to discharge 5-10 litres of water a day. As the cold water heats up in the tank, the water expands and is discharged from the cold water expansion valve. If the expansion valve is leaking more than 10 litres of water a day, give us a call.

No Hot Water – Pilot Light
If you have no hot water at all check to see if the pilot light is igniting and burning. Re-light the pilot light according to the instructions on the inside of the access cover. If the pilot is not lighting or igniting, check that there is gas to the water heater. Check that the isolating valve on the gas line is turned ‘ON’.

Also, check to see if there is gas being supplied to the rest of the house. If there’s more than one gas appliance check all to see if they are lighting. If there is no gas, call the gas supply company.

Electric Ignition
Make sure the power chord is plugged into the wall and check the fuse in the metre box… as obvious as this sounds you would be surprised how many times we’ve turned up a Hot Water Repair job only to discover it’s not even plugged in!
