Hot water installers North Shore
This customer, located in Neutral Bay on Sydney’s North Shore, contacted us when an auxillary gas hot water system that was used for an outdoor kitchen started leaking.
Whilst our local North Shore hot water specialist made his way to the Neutral Bay property, over the phone our hot water specialist, Mick, instructed the customer how to turn off the water supply and additional steps they could take to prevent further damage.
The common reason why hot water heaters leak
Once onsite at the property, our local North Shore hot water specialist, Steve, could see that the problem was most likely due to the internal tank corroding, rusting and then leaking. Typically, the internal anode corrodes and, over time, the tank rusts inside, cracks, and then leaks. A sign this may be occurring is that your hot water starts looking yellowy or orange. It may also have a metallic taste. This is a common problem with older hot water systems and can be prevented with a regular 5 year service.

Save time and money by employing a local expert
Did you know that often the repair and installation of a hot water system requires the expertise and qualifications of both a licensed plumber and a licensed electrician?
We are qualified to undertake any plumbing and electrical work required to ensure your hot water heater is repaired 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.
Your hot water heater is an expensive appliance. Don’t risk voiding your 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?
