Plumbing plays an integral role in almost every home in Canada. When it works, plumbing makes your life incredibly easy by providing you with clean water to drink, disposing of your waste discretely, and bathing you. It is only when your plumbing fails to work that you realize just how much you depended on it. To prevent you from being uncomfortable, here are some tips on how to diagnose a common plumbing problem: a lack of hot water.
No Hot Water?
One of the most common plumbing complaints is that you don't have any hot water. There are several steps to fixing this problem.
First, you should check to make sure that your hot water heater is actually on and functioning properly. If it is out of fuel, is unplugged, the circuit breaker is flipped, or if the thermostat is set incorrectly, then the solution might be very simple. It may sound silly, but a quick check can save you a lot of time and money on a professional visit.
Next, you will want to determine the severity of the problem. Do you have any hot water at all? Are only certain rooms affected? These questions will help you decide what the proper response is.
