Selecting a Suitable Hot Water System

There are two main types of water heaters:

 1. Storage and

 2. Instantaneous (Continuous Flow).

Instantaneous heaters heat the water instantly and provide continuous flow around the clock, while in storage heaters, water is heated at particular time of the day mainly during off peak and stored in a tank.

Supplied and installed Hot Water Systems start from $599. 
To find out more please call us. 

Electric water heaters Can heat water at any time of day and are by far the most expensive option. Off-peak electric (which heat only when tariffs are lower) and gas systems have similar costs, depending on the tariffs you have to pay.

Ideal for use with money saving off-peak tariffs Come in range of sizes from as small as 25L up to generous 410L generally have a lower install cost than other types of water heaters.

Hot Water – Ruptured & Leaking Tank

A hot water tank will usually last about 6 – 10 years before it decides to rupture or leak. The main cause is that the cylinder walls have corroded from rust. 
Ask us about rust protection by replacing the sacrificial anode. They can also rupture due to a faulty safety valve. We can check your valve FREE of charge.

TIP! If your tank has sprung a leak you will need to turn off the water pressure quickly to prevent water damage to your property.

The main shut off valve for your hot water tank is usually found at the bottom left or right side of your Tank. 
It will either be a black round knob or a tap handle similar to your garden tap handle. To turn this valve off simply turn it in a clockwise direction until the water stops flowing. Next release any pressure remaining in the tank by activating the Safety Valve located near the top side of your tank.

The Preventative Maintenance is very crucial to the health and life of your hot water system

How Can You Make The Hot Water Unit Last Longer?

Every Enamel (glass) lined mains pressure hot water tank is fitted with either one or two Sacrificial Anodes, which protect the tank from corrosion.
Unfortunately sacrificial anodes do not last much longer than the standard warranty period of the tank, which is 5 years. We recommend that they are checked and replaced every 3-4 years to ensure the maximum life of your tank. In addition we recommend that your tank should be drained and flushed every 5 years.

Why Replace The Anode?

The Anode is “sacrificial”, meaning that it is a softer alloy than the cylinder and all corrosion will occur at the Anode and not your cylinder.

Seven Very Good Reasons Why You Should Replace Your Anode And Taper Valve Every 3-5 Years.

  1. Your hot water tank will last years longer.
  2. You will save money $$$ by making the tank last up to 3* times longer *(this will depend on water quality and regular servicing of your unit).
  3. You will save on the inconvenience and the hassle of frequent hot water replacements.
  4. You will save $$$ on electricity or gas when your tank is operating correctly.
  5. You will be helping the environment, (less tank replacements, less disposal at our ever diminishing rubbish dumps).
  6. You will not be wasting valuable resources (electricity, gas & water).
  7. Your hot water will be much cleaner for showers, dish washing and the laundry.
