Who doesn’t like a hot, steamy shower on a cold, freezing day? But if your geyser breaks down, this pleasurable experience would certainly become a nightmare. Not to forget, the flood of inconvenience that such unexpected breakdowns bring along with them. In order to prevent any such nightmare from knocking on your door, watch out for these signs –
1) Drip Tip Tip
Is your electric geyser leaking water from the top or the bottom? Chances are one of its pipes have loosened up or there could be a fault in the valve.
2) Water Water Everywhere, But Not Hot Enough!
If water from your geyser is not hot enough, thermostat settings need to be checked upon.
3) Popping/ Hissing/ Humming!
When there is a scale build-up on your heating elements or too much sediment build-up in the bottom of the tank, your geyser will likely produce strange noises.
4) Crystal Clear To Rusty Coloured Water
Watch out for the colour of hot water. If it’s rusty, the anode rod or the tank itself is possibly corroding.
5)Trickling Hot Water
Over a period, salts get deposited inside the geyser, causing blockages. This results in the trickle of water.
6) Dead Indicator Light
If you turn your geyser on and yet the indicator doesn’t light up, there is likely to be an issue with its thermocouple.
If your geyser is showing any of the above symptoms, it is necessary to get it checked. Don’t worry, you don’t have to run behind plumbers, simply call Housejoy and rest your worries with us.
