No hot water with your Aquamax HWU and wondering what to do next?

At Expert Plumbing, we are licensed in Aquamax repairs and replacements. Aquamax Hot Water Units are renowned for their durability, as they are constructed from high-grade stainless steel that resists corrosion far better than other brands. However, like any appliance, they may encounter issues over time. Here are some common problems you might encounter.

Faulty Thermocouple

If your Aquamax hot water unit is not producing hot water and your pilot light will not stay lit, it’s likely due to a faulty thermocouple. Our licensed plumbers can replace the thermocouple, restoring proper function to your unit.

Malfunctioning Gas Control Valve

A faulty gas control valve can lead to various problems, including the pilot light going out, inconsistent water temperature, or even excessive heat. If you notice inconsistencies in your Aquamax hot water unit’s performance, a faulty gas control valve may be to blame. Our licensed plumbers have the expertise to diagnose and replace faulty valves.

PTR (Pressure and Temperature Relief) Valve

The PTR valve is essential for ensuring safe operation, by releasing excess pressure and temperature buildup. While it is normal for the PTR valve to release a small amount of water periodically, continuous flow indicates a problem. Our licensed plumbers can inspect the PTR valve and address any issues to ensure your Aquamax hot water unit operates safely and efficiently.
