Hot water system repair and replacement service Penrith

Penrith hot water repairs.

When this customer woke up to no hot water, they contacted us and our local hot water repair specialist was onsite at the Penrith property within an hour to assess the problem and ensure the customer was back enjoying trouble-free hot water that day.

Once onsite at the Penrith house, Steve ran a series of tests on the old Vulcan electric HWS to determine why it had stopped producing hot water.  His tests uncovered a series of problems with the old hot water system that made it uneconomical to repair.  While we carry a huge range of replacement parts, over time, the hot water system manufacturers stop producing spare parts for their older models.  This customer’s old Vulcan hot water system was, in its day, a popular model so our stockpile of spare parts has unfortunately dried up.  Sadly, this is the case with many household appliances where it’s impossible to repair them because replacement parts are no longer available.

Steve then discussed with the customer their household hot water usage requirements.  The customer was happy with storage capacity of the old Vulcan tank (400 litre).  With this in mind, Steve recommended the installation of a new Vulcan (Rheem*) 400 litre electric hot water system (model:492400).

The new hot water system could be installed in the same location as the old one, saving time and money.
