Important Parts on Electric Hot Water System You Need to Know

Have you got an electric hot water system?

Have you checked whether you had all the important parts on your electric hot water system?

In this video, we’ll show you what parts you need to have on your HWS.

We were renovating a client’s kitchen when we noticed their electric hot water system was missing a couple of important parts.

1. The Hot Pressure Relief Valve didn’t have a pipe connected to it
This is dangerous because hot water is coming out of that valve, so if the kids are playing with the valve, they could burn their feet.

2. The hot water system doesn’t have a Cold Pressure Relief Valve
This is an important thing to have, or else when the hot PRV stuffs up, and the thermostat keeps going, you could have a bomb strapped in your house that can explode at any time.

So you have to make sure your hot water system has all of the vital parts. We have made another video explaining about leaking valve and the different parts of the hot water system, what they do and why they’re important.

If your HWS doesn’t have one of those, give us a call. We’ll be happy to help.
