Maintenance of Hot Water Systems

A joint investigation by the QBCC and Queensland Health has revealed that home owners are often not aware that hot water systems need to be serviced regularly.

Plumbers should remind home owners that it is generally recommended for hot water systems to be serviced by an appropriately licensed individual. Where the source water for the system is not a potable, reticulated source, the system may need to be serviced more frequently.

Get your hot water system serviced

Regardless of whether you are a property owner or tenant, you need to be aware that hot water systems require regular, routine maintenance.

As a property owner, it is your responsibility to check the owner’s manual to find out how often you should have your hot water system serviced.

When you engage someone to do plumbing and drainage work on your property, which includes servicing a hot water system, you should always contract with a licensed plumber.
