How does a geyser work?

Emergency geyser repair services from JTS Plumbing. A geyser is usually installed against a wall or, in most cases, inside of a roof. Also, the geyser is directly connected to the main water source of your home. Coldwater is flushed inside of the geyser and the electrical element inside of the geyser immediately starts to warm the water to a specific temperature using a thermostat.


If you experience water not being as hot as it should be you can contact a licensed emergency plumber to a full geyser inspection to adjust the geyser temperature or inspect for other problems which can cause an unstable temperature of your water. In many cases, a burst geyser can present a variety of symptoms like leaking water, drop in hot water temperature and many more. No matter what kind of geyser you have, may it be electric geyser, or a solar geyser. Any geyser can at times experience problems. Here are a few hot water geyser problems which commonly occur in many homes around Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Water leaking from a geyser can happen at the top of a geyser or the bottom of the geyser. Topwater leaking geysers may indicate an inlet valve where the cold water is connected to may be leaking. If the geyser is leaking at the bottom part, it may indicate a burst geyser and the best possible solution is a geyser replacement service.

No hot water producing geyser may indicate a faulty geyser system. Our licensed plumbers will need to first inspect your circuit breakers to determine if there’s any power tripping. Also, the heating element can be inspected to determine if the geyser’s heating element may be the cause of no hot water availability. The geyser inspection services should always be conducted by a licensed plumber or electrician from JTS Plumbing. Doing the inspections or attempting the geyser repairs yourself may lead to more damages and also serious injuries.

When the geyser fails to produce insufficient amounts of hot water, it may be an indication of a thermostat problem. A thermostat’s temperatures can be adjusted yourself but in many cases, the temperature is locked at factory settings and would require a licensed emergency plumber to intervene and assist you. Our registered emergency plumber will inspect your geysers thermostat and also check to see if there are any loose wires or any other problem to your geyser.

Some slight noise from your geyser is normal as with most major appliances. But if you hear a loud rumbling or popping sound coming from the inside, it is time to call a plumber who knows how to deal with noisy geysers. One reason for geyser noises is that mineral deposits may have built up and caused the appliance to over-heat.

5 Signs that it is now time for a geyser service:

  1. No hot water – geyser not heating up
  2. Leaking geyser – geyser or pipes cracked
  3. Strange geyser sounds – rumbling or popping sounds
  4. Rusty or discoloured water – sediment in the geyser
  5. Water too hot – geyser overheating

Old geysers can also be a factor to consider when it’s time for a geyser service. Geysers have a limited life span of about 10 years, so check the serial number. The first two digits are normally the year.
