Apricus solar hot water system repair

apricus solar hot water system repair

Fast solar hot water heater repairs. All Sydney areas.

We were contacted by a customer in Castle Hill whose Apricus solar hot water system had water leaking from the vent.  Located in the customer’s garage, for obvious reasons they were concerned of flooding.

When speaking to the customer over the phone, John determined that the problem may be due to a faulty TPR valve as the customer explained that water was leaking out of the vent / breather. The system was only a few years old and had been installed by the customer’s plumber.

John organised to attend the home at Castle Hill as soon as he was finished at his current repair job.  Within 1.5 hours, John was onsite.

As expected, the problem was due to a faulty TPR valve.  Water leaking from the vents / breather is typically a sign of this problem.

Whilst onsite, John carried out a range of tests to ensure no other parts were becoming worn out and may be prone to breakdown in the not-too-distant future.

Outlined below are details of the Apricus hot water system repair and service.
