Here’s some simple tips to try before reporting your maintenance.
• Check to see if the whole street is affected.
• Call water board hotline to check the details of any water supply interruption or scheduled works.
• Turn on a number of taps to see if the water meter ticks over (this will indicate blockage).
• Check that your HWS is switched on.
• Check that your pilot light is lit.
• Check main power board to see that the main switch for the HWS is in the “ON” position and has not tripped the safety switch.
• Check that the unit is not leaking any water.
• Ensure that lack of supply is not due to overuse and if a significant amount of hot water has been used allow ample time for additional water to be heated.
• If leaking/running toilet is the issue then turn off the supply at the wall when not in use.
• Check to see if there are emergency or planned power outages at www.powercor.com.au.
• Check main power box. If safety switch is in “OFF” position it will need to be switched on again. If it trips again you’ll need to unplug you appliances and turn the switch back on. Systematically reconnect appliances one by one to determine what is causing the switch to engage and leave faulty appliance unplugged. Common causes are faulty fridges, kettles and microwaves.
