Fresh hot water from the tap is something we take for granted most of the time, but if your hot water system starts to fail, then it can be a massive inconvenience. Sometimes the problem is more than can be solved with a bit of DIY, and that’s when you have to call in a professional quickly. Here are some of the ways you can tell whether or not your hot water cylinder is on its last legs, and who you should call for help in this event.

How can you tell?

There are a few signs that can be used to diagnose the problem, such as:

– Brown or discoloured water coming from the hot tap (this suggests corrosion within your water cylinder)
– Fluctuating/loss of temperature from the tap
– Leaking water (indicating a non-repairable leak somewhere in the cylinder)

These signs often point to a cylinder that’s not functioning properly. Please don’t try to fix this yourself – most of the time it will need replacing by an expert and you’ll end up doing more harm than good.
