Sutherland hot water heater installation service.

Vulcan 125 litre electric hot water heater (648125). 

This customer in Yowie Bay in the Sutherland Shire noticed their hot water heater was leaking when water started running out of the storage area and workshop under their house.  Thankfully, the problem was relatively new and hadn’t caused significent damage.

Commonly, it’s only when customers begin running out of hot water that they realise there is a problem.  A leaking hot water heater can cause significant damage, particularly if the tank bursts.  Thankfully, this tank only had a small split so the leak wasn’t catastropic.

Over the phone we instructed the customer how to turn off the water supply to their hot water heater.  Our local Sutherland hot water specialist was onsite shortly thereafter.

When we’re called out to a hot water repair job, we always do what we can to save the customer money and never advise them on costly solutions that aren’t necessary or warranted.  For this Sutherland Shire customer, unfortunately, the internal hot water tank was split and unable to be repaired. A new hot water system needed to be installed.

The installation of a new hot water system provides homeowners with the perfect opportunity to upgrade to a larger hot water system or switch from electric to gas. The customer took advantage of this and upgraded the capacity of their old system to a new Vulcan 125 litre electric hot water system (model 648125).  With a generous 10 year warranty, the Vulcan hot water system provides them with further peace of mind.

With installation complete, the customer was back enjoying trouble free hot water shortly thereafter.

Save money and employ the local experts

Don’t waste money employing multiple trades.

Did you know that a new hot water system is a big investment and often needs the installation and setup of plumbing, gas and electric components? This requires the experience and qualifications of both a licensed plumber and a licensed electrician.

At Cheapa Hot Water, we are licensed and qualified to undertake any plumbing and electrical work required to complete your hot water system installation or repair quickly, and within budget.

Plumbers who do not specialise in the installation of hot water heaters may need to outsource the electrical work required to another tradesperson, thereby holding up your hot water system repair or installation, adding extra expense due to additional call out fees charged by employing two tradespeople.

Don’t risk voiding your hot water heater warranty

Additionally, most manufacturers won’t cover the terms of your hot water system warranty if it isn’t installed by a licensed hot water technician or qualified plumber. Hot water tanks are an expensive appliance so why would you risk voiding your warranty by installing it yourself or employing the services of someone who isn’t licensed?

Save money today by calling our Sydney hot water experts. Our trucks are on the road right now stocked with thousands of spare parts to repair and service your hot water heater quickly.
