Understanding the Components of Electric Water Heater
When it comes to household energy costs in Australia, 15% to 27% of your energy budget goes toward heating your water. Around 50% of Australian homes have electric hot water storage systems, largely because they are the most affordable to buy and install. The functions of key components of electric water heater systems are as follows,
Hot Water System Heating Element Replacement
Electric hot water system has an insulated storage tank jacket made of steel, with insulation between the storage tank and the tank jacket to reduce heat loss of the heated water. In electric water heater, the water is heated by electric upper and lower heating elements that extend into the water tank

Why Is My Hot Water Leaking?
A pressure relief valve that is defective or ineffective is the most frequent reason for water heater leaks. This valve keeps the pressure in the water tank from rising, and if it malfunctions, hot water may start to leaking. Other potential causes are,
Pooling water from the top of your water heater could be your cold or hot water inlets that bring water into the tank to be heated and then out into your pipes when you need it. Loose pipe connections can cause leaking from the top of your water heater.
Water leaking from the side of your heater is likely your temperature pressure relief valve. The temperature pressure relief valve is a safety mechanism that allows for hot water and steam to discharge from the tank when there is too much pressure built up inside it.
If you notice water leaking from near the base of your water heater, it could be an issue with the drain valve. The drain valve is designed to empty the water tank when needed, such as during maintenance.
