Frequently Asked Questions about Hot Water Systems

Some common causes of low water pressure include:

  • Malfunctioning water heater
  • Partially closed water valve
  • Sediment in the system
  • Issues with the water main

Other causes could be rusty or leaking pipes, as well as poor showerhead quality. In any case, a licensed plumber will be able to identify and solve the issue.

This will change depending on what is recommended by the manufacturer. Each system component will need to be serviced at different times. Your system will have instructions from your manufacturer to inform you of when services will need to be completed.

This likely depends on the age of your hot water system.

If your system is coming to the end of its lifespan, a replacement will be more cost effective in the long run. However, if it is a fairly new system, your plumber should be able to repair it unless there is a serious issue.
