Be 100% sure to check that any Water Heater repair company is Gas Safe Registered.  The Gas Safe Register has replaced CORGI and always use a Gas Safe Registered engineer for any Water Heater repairs of Water Heater services. These are the only people who are qualified to work safely and legally on gas appliances.Water Heater Repairs | What should be included in a Water Heater service

As soon as the Water Heater engineer arrives, they should do a general visual once over to make sure the Water Heater meets all the manufacturer’s current standards.

These standard regulations will include:

·         Electrical Regulations

·         Gas Safety Regulations

·         Building Regulations

·         Water By-laws

Because some Water Heaters  can be pretty old and the fact that rules and regulations are changing all the time, some older Water Heaters will not pass the initial inspection and for this reason may require additional work to bring them up to regulations. This can be frustrating to homeowners who feel their Water Heater is working perfectly, yet they now have to spend money bringing them up to standards and current legislation. This work could include moving the Water Heater to a new location, which would involve building works.

After the visual check, your Water Heater repair engineer will carry out a pre-service check. Here they will find any general faults with the Water Heater.

The Water Heater cover will soon be removed for the Water Heater repairs engineer to perform a thorough visual check on all the components under the cover. These components will include the actual burner, the spark centre probe and the sensor probe, and off course the main injector. The engineer wants to check they are all undamaged.

The inside surface of the Water Heater casing should be cleaned. This can be done simply by hovering any dust from the Water Heater.Water Heater Repair | Any problems

At the end of the service a gas tightness test should be performed to make sure there are absolutely no gas leaks from the Water Heater.

The Water Heater engineer will then put the Water Heater case back on making sure it is fully secure.

Please be aware a full service will take anything from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

You will then be given a service report which will show you all the tasks your plumber carried out on the Water Heater.
