Electric hot water systems are similarly built like an electric kettle. It has a built-in heating element inside the tank, directly placed at the bottom, therefore it heats the water that’s stored inside the tank. If you’re washing your hands and the water is cold after a couple of minutes, then clearly there is a problem.

Safety is a priority, so first things first. Since your electric hot water needs repair, turn off your electricity as your hot water system is connected to a power source. Then check to see if there are any blown fuses and if so, replace them. Next, reset any damaged circuit breakers if possible. Then check if the electric water heating systems’ thermostat is receiving power, because if this is faulty, replace it if you have another thermostat.



There are a variety of reasons that can cause a leakage from your electric hot water systems, which will need repair ASAP.

Here is a list of reasons:

1. First check the T&P valve by placing a bucket beneath the overhead pipe to check. Open your electric hot water system, and flush it to clean and repair the dirt and debris; if it still leaks, it will require fixing or replacing.

2. If the pressure from your electric hot water cylinder is increasing or decreasing, this will need repairing to lower the thermostat setting to relieve excessive pressure or heat.

3. Then look for any loose pipe connections and tighten them with a wrench, being careful not to overtighten.

4. After that, inspect the heating element bolts and tighten them if necessary.

5. Remove the heating element and replace the gasket if the leak persists.

6. Finally, inspect the storage tank for leaks. We’d recommend these steps be undertaken by a professional.


With global warming presenting a serious threat to the planet, eco-friendly ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are being encouraged. Solar hot water systems can repair our environment as this is one of the most environmentally beneficial water heating options. Solar energy is used to power the system, which is both relatively cost-free and renewable.

The problem with a solar hot water system which cannot be repaired immediately is when we have a cloudy day or it’s the rainy season, sunlight cannot produce enough hot water in your solar hot water system, which can be inconvenient. When installed make sure your solar hot water system is placed in a position where sunlight is optimal.

Always check your thermostat and if it’s broken, it will need replacing. Another problem with a solar hot water system which can be repaired almost immediately, is a broken solar panel, which needs to be fixed by a professional.

Fluid leaking is one of the most common issues with solar hot water heaters, but it can be repaired. In fact, it’s one of the most common problems with solar-powered water heaters. This problem is often caused by a broken collector glass or pipe, or a damaged and open pressure relief valve in the solar panels. Loss of pipe fittings and thermal expansion are two other possible causes of water leaks in a solar-powered water heater.

With this problem, a professional can usually fix it without too much delay. Whilst waiting for them, check the pipe fittings for any loose connections or broken pipes, and adjust or replace them if necessary. You can also decrease the system pressure by adjusting the thermostat settings.
