Winter is coming. It’s time to run geyser for the day. Geyser is a commonly used as an home appliance.
The geyser increases the temperature of cold water up to 75degree Centigarde to produce hot water, where the hot water used for bathing, cleaning utensil or washing clothes etc..

Common problems with geyser are:

1. Heating element problem
A common and most troubling problem of a geyser is that they don’t heat the water properly and is because of heating element. So a heating element converts electricity into heat through the process of resistive or Joule heating.
If the geyser is supplied with power and is in ON condition, but still water is not heated, it indicates that the heating elements have failed.

2. Thermostat problem
Another reason for water not heating is a faulty thermostat. Thermostat is a device that keeps the temperature of water inside geyser tank at a desired level, by cutting off the power supply once the desired temperature is achieved. Geysers typically have heating range of temperatures at 45-75 degree Centigrade. However, this device faults at off position, in which case water does not heat up and remains cold.

So if you find a problem with heating element or thermostat do not hesitate book our services of geyser at www.orangeboyz.com

3. Bad hot water pressure / flow
Poor hot water pressure or flow, but good cold water flow in a geyser could be either due to blockage at the water heating equipment itself or mineral clogging in the water heating system piping I.e deposition of scaling of pipe line over a period of time which obstruct the flow of hot water would result in low pressure at the outlet of hot water tap end.

4. Noise inside Geyser tank or piping
Noisy water heaters are described as humming, hissing, singing, crackling, popping, ticking, tapping, knocking, and hammering, and is annoying if it is installed in your living space. The reason might be salt and mineral deposit at the bottom of the water heater tank. Over the period of time, lime and scale present in hard water coat the bottom of the tank and the surface of heating elements and electrodes. This deposition interferes with proper heater operation and causes noise. The solution to this problem is to clean the water tank of geyser.
Water hammer is not a water heater noise. Water hammer can be a big thump that shakes the house, or a series of banging noises starting with a loud bang followed by several “echoes”. Rapidly closing or opening a valve causes pressure transients in pipelines. Water hammering should be fixed as soon as possible. Its not likely to damage the walls but will burst the pipe and cause a flood. Install a water hammer arrestor if needed with the help of www.orangeboyz.com service providers.

5. Water dripping
Water leakage indicates diagnosis of plumbing connections, parts or valves leaks to a complex diagnosis of water tank failure.
Water may drip from a pressure relieve valve due to excess pressure buildup inside the water tank which is for the safety of water tank and is not a problem at all. But the dripping is continuous from the pressure relieve valve then it should be diagnosed properly by a plumber. Valve leakage sometimes can be arrested by tightening of loose valves or replacing with a new one.

6. Discolored water
Discoloring of water can be caused due to corrosion, rust or sedimentation inside the water tank.

7. Bad Odour of water
Bacteria build up in tank can cause bad odour of water and can be cleaned with chlorine bleach or hydrogen peroxide and also Check/replace anode rod.
