There are a number of other problems that can go wrong with your hot water tank or immersion tank

  • Your hot water tank is not heating water because the immersion has failed or the coil from the heating is blocked or valved off.
  • Heating water very slowly due to the heating coil becoming blocked or the immersion may be covered in limescale

It usually takes between half a day to a full day depending on the complexity of your plumbing and heating system.

If your home has a cold water tank in your attic and is gravity fed you will need an open vented hot water cylinder. Alternatively, a vented cylinder is used where the water supply is coming directly from the mains and is heated by either a boiler, heat pump, or solar panel.

An unvented cylinder is suitable for a home where space is limited as it does not require a cold water tank.

A family of 4 depending on the size of house and needs of the family would typically need somewhere between 120 – 150 litres of hot water daily.

24 Hour Plumber will always find a solution to your home’s hot water needs. We will advise what size cylinder your home needs based on the size of your house and the number of people living in your home. If you install a hot water cylinder that is too large for your home you may end up heating too much unwanted hot water that will lead to inefficiency and larger heating bills.

Many hot water cylinders now have the capacity to connect to Solar PV panels which is much more energy efficient and cost effective. All modern hot water cylinders have become much more energy saving due to better insulation, rapid reheat time and mostly come in stainless steel which retains heat for longer. 

Our plumbers regularly install hot water cylinders in apartments. We usually install a combi hot water tank which is a vented copper hot water tank with hot water storage at the bottom and cold water storage at the top. They are usually 6-7 feet in height.

24 Hour Plumber gives all our customers a full warranty upon installation of a hot water cylinder. ( t&c’s apply )

A hot water cylinder usually lasts anywhere from 8 to 12 years, or even up to 15 years if well maintained. However this can vary depending on factors such as whether you live in an area with hard water and how well your heating system is maintained. Hard water areas can reduce your hot water cylinders’ lifespan and performance. They also require yearly maintenance as per the manufacturer’s instructions.

The first and most obvious sign your hot water cylinder needs replacing is if there is a leak present. This is usually due to a crack in the tank or corrosion present in a copper cylinder. 

No hot water present when you expect means there is a problem present such as a fault in the coil or the immersion depending on what type of cylinder you have.
