Is Your Hot Water Supply From The Geyser Not Enough?

Are you not getting enough hot water from your Geyser? Or have you noticed that recently your water is not as hot as it used to be? Then maybe it is time to turn up the temperature on your Geyser.

When the ground temperature changes and it gets colder and it causes the incoming cold water temperature to be colder that is when your geysers have to work harder to heat up the water. Once you start using the hot water, the cold water coming into the geyser mixes with the hot water and your hot water cools down.
This is especially the case if you have an older geyser that has sediment build up in the geyser cylinder. The sediment will drain the heat out of the water more quicker. Most people also tend to take longer hot shower periods in the winter months, as a result of the colder temperatures.

If you need your hot water to last a little longer there is a way going about to do just that during the winter months. Just check where the thermostat on your Geyser is installed and turn up the temperature. (Beware there is live electrical wires under the cover) best practise is to switch off the geyser and by using a multi meter to ensure that the electrical supply to the geyser is save.
