One of the worst things to happen is when you hop in the shower and find that there is no hot water. This can be due to a number of problems, some of which you can fix yourself and others that require the services of an experienced plumber in Sydney.
The causes and solutions for having no hot water, can sometimes depend on whether you have an electric or gas hot water system, others are the same regardless of the system.
If you run out of hot water now and again, then it could be due to using more hot water than normal. In this case, all you need to do is wait for more water to heat in the tank. On the other hand, if you find that you have no hot water on a consistent basis, then you might need a bigger tank. Talking to your local plumber in Sydney is a good way to find a tank that is big enough for your growing needs.
There are 4 potential reasons why your gas hot water system is not working properly and you have no hot water.
• You have run out of gas.
• The pilot light has gone out.
• The burner is not working properly.
• You have a gas leak.
