Hot Water Systems – What you should know!
A hot water system in Melbourne is generally designed to last an average of between 10 to 20 years. However, sometimes problems occur. These problems can compromise the performance of the system and shorten their lifespan. The most common causes are:
Undersized heating units that cannot meet the hot water demands
Faulty control valves, gas pilot, pressure or temperature release valves
Control or gas supply problems
Presence of hydrogen gas sediments and bacteria inside the tanks
Leakage in the tanks, pressure and temperature release valves due to overheating and excessive pressure
It is important to buy a hot water system that can not only meet your demands for hot water, but is also energy efficient. Get it right first time and you will save money on hot water repairs later on.

Storage/ Tank Water Heaters
Tank water heaters or storage water heaters as they can be known, have traditionally been the most popular for both commercial and residential usage. The tanks are simply cylindrical containers that keep a lot of water hot and are ready to be used at any time. Their sizes range between 75 and 400 litres and they can use natural gas, electricity, solar, propane or other sources of energy.
Continuous Flow Water Heaters
These water heaters have become increasingly popular over time and are also alternatively referred to as in-line, instant, on-demand or continuous flow water heaters. They are powerful heaters that do not store or retain any water at all but heat it as it is flowing through them. The tank-less heaters have significant power and money saving advantages, in addition they can provide an unlimited supply of hot water as opposed to the storage water heaters that only supply limited quantities of hot water.
