Hot Water Service

Latest News

Scale drops to the bottom of the hot water service tank below the heating element where the cold inlet flow progressively dissolves the removed scale. Hot water temperature gradually rises as element and thermostat are de-scaled. Heating times are reduced and the thermostat setting can be lowered to save energy costs. No blockages occur but in some instances, scale being removed from the safety valve at the top of the hot water service tank may cause it to release some water until the scale particles have been flushed away. Operating this valve manually about once a week for a few seconds will prevent this problem occurring. No other maintenance is required.
