Hard Water and the Woes of Hot Water Cylinder

There are some regions in New Zealand which have been severely affected by hard water issues causing continuous damage to the residential water supply system, particularly a hot water cylinder. Reported by many residents across New Zealand, both who have recently done a new hot water cylinders installation and those whose installation has been almost or over a year.

Only recently has a Local Councillor from Hurunui District shared his experience on the internet to raise awareness about the problem in his local community. A typical hot water cylinder repair service won’t fix the problem, as Michael Ward reportedly said that his plumber told him the sacrificial anode needs replacement as they don’t last more than five years.

How to save your hot water cylinder?

There are always ways to ensure a functional hot water cylinder at your home. First of all, you need to check the water cylinder pressure. Many people are unaware of how to do that, so it’s synonymous with inviting danger to your home and a possible new hot water cylinder installation. That means wasting of money, so it’s better to gain knowledge of it first and do a regular checkup every month or twice a month.

Michael Ward, while sharing his experience said it was “quite a shock” to see his hot water cylinder leaking because the anode needed a replacement service. So it’s equally important to bear in mind that the anode needs to be replaced quite often, due to the heavy content in the hard water. The smart safety measure here is to have a sacrificial anode always in place to counter the problem. “Without one, you are asking for trouble” says the Hurunui District Councillor.
