Plumbing - Frequently Asked Questions

When should I replace my hot water tank?
 
Predicting when a water tank will start to leak is very difficult . Rather, I would be more interested in where the water will travel if the tank were to leak. It is recommended that a tank drainage pan be installed to prevent damage to your investment. If this is not possible it is recommended that a draining tube be installed to move the leakage away to a safe drainage area.

How large should my hot water tank be?

If the family has one to four people a 40 gallon tank {50 US} should be sufficient. However if one of the persons is a teenager or you have a large soaker tub a 60 gallon tank should be installed.

Is there a way of preventing scalding in the shower when other water appliances are working or the toilet need to be flushed?
 
A pressure balancing valve should be installed in the shower. This controls the amount of water that comes out of the shower head. Also, a practical approach is to simply place your other water appliances on standby while you have a shower.

What is the easiest way to improve my plumbing in my house?
 
Simply carry out routine maintenance on your equipment and you will always have clear lines.


At what temperature should I set my hot water tank?
 
The optimum temperature is subjective. It all depends on your needs. The temperature should be set in your house based on who will use the facilities. For example, if you have young children I recommend lowering the maximum temperature to prevent accidental scalding.
