A heated water storage appliance is a relatively simple appliance to maintain or repair. It has six major components which each work together to make your appliance safe, store a pre heated volume of water, last in a Ferro reactive environment, keep the temperature at a pre-set temperature and of course heat the water. These components are called- sacrificial anode, the thermostat, element, tank or vessel, pressure and temperature relief and greatly under-rated is the circuit breaker at the mains power supply.
The thermostat is a device with a disk engineered to bow at a pre-set temperature and disengage the power supply to the element when the disk flex temperature is achieved – this is designed to be in contact with the vessel (if you are of my generation and were fortunate to ever play with these, try to remember the dropper popper toys that were all the rage in the 90’s, but made from metal with a heat activated inversion).
The element which in essence is a thick piece of copper amalgam with a set resistance to current which enables the flow of electricity to be resisted and energy be converted and discharged to its surroundings in the form of heat.
The vessel which is just a metal welded tank engineered to contain water at pressures that are pre-determined as safe working pressures.
The pressure and temperature relief valve which prevents the tank from exceeding its safe operating pressure and blow up.
The circuit breaker at the mains supply- which in a fault condition (a short, the element forming a salt bridge, a wire contacting the body of the vessel etc) will prevent current from discharging continuously and melt stuff or discharge through a person for extended periods (it may still electrocute if there is a problem and the breaker hasn’t been activated)- but this is very rare.
The sacrificial anode (also known as a Galvanic Anode), is a long metal rod made from aluminium or manganese which when in contact with your pressure vessel will “steal” oxygen from Fe2O3 (rust) causing the charged iron atoms to re deposit, or never leave the tank in an redox reaction.
Fe + H2O + O2 –> Fe2O3 (rust)
2Al+Fe2O3 –> Al2O3 +2FE
There is nothing worse than not having hot water on demand as your little ones come in muddy after a sports meet, or in the morning prior to work. Being forced to endure the joys of heading in to work wearing enough perfume to clear a board meeting is never pleasant. And yes we know how you feel moments before entering the confines of an elevator extremely conscious about one’s own “scents”. We are plumbers after all. Never pleasant.
