Having a problem with your hot water?

There might be a few reasons why your hot water system is not working properly. We’re here to help, so we’ve outlined a few possibilities to check out.

Why do I have no hot water?

Often, the reason your hot water suddenly disappears is electrical, such as faulty elements, thermostats, or isolating switches.

However, there may be a plumbing problem. For example, a leak in a hot water pipe could let cold water feed into the cylinder or a there may be faulty pressure reducing valve, or safety valve, or tempering valve.

Not a problem. Call 022 3968141 for a solution to that dodgy hot water system. The Prentice Solutions team will efficiently locate the problem and provide an effective solution, fast. We carry out hot water cylinder repairs on the North Shore and across all of Auckland.

Why do I keep running out of hot water?

Your hot water cylinder may be undersized for your water usage or your thermostat may be set too low. A family of four typically needs about a 200-litre capacity hot water cylinder under normal use. If you’re not going to regularly run out of hot water, you may need to consider upgrading to a bigger hot water cylinder.

Speak to our plumbing team. We can help you find the best solution for a hot water system for your place. You will be able to make an informed decision on which model will best suit your budget, business and family circumstances.

Why is my hot water pressure so low?

Because you probably have a low-pressure cylinder. Older cylinders tend to be smaller and low pressure, whereas modern electric hot water cylinders are high- or mains-pressure and hold 180 litres or more. You may want to consider upgrading to a mains pressure system.

Your hot water pressure can also be affected by a faulty shut off valve, a clogged filter, a faulty limiting valve or your pressure reducing valve may be incorrectly adjusted. Whatever the issue, the Prentice Solutions team will sort it. We carry out hot water cylinder repairs on the North Shore and across all of Auckland. Simply call 022 3968141 for a solution.

Replacing a hot water cylinder is usually fairly straightforward for a professional who has undergone the correct training, which of course we have.

Replacing your low-pressure hot water cylinder with a mains-pressure system doesn’t necessarily mean you have to upgrade low-pressure tapware, if you have any. We can upgrade your system to mains pressure and set it to accommodate your low-pressure tapware.
