Rheem solar repairs, replacement service and new installations.

We were contacted by a customer at Pymble, on Sydney’s Upper North Shore, whose rooftop Rheem solar hot water heater had started leaking.  They didn’t realise but their precious hot water was running down the roof and into the gutters.

Over the phone, the customer explained to our solar specialist, John, that they had been running out of hot water for a while.  They thought this was because they had been using more hot water as the weather got cooler. What they didn’t realise is that their rooftop solar hot water system had a significant leak and all the hot water was running down the roof and into their gutters.

John organised to attend the property that day to inspect and repair the customer’s solar hot water system.

Duct tape is not a long-term solution when repairing a rooftop solar hot water system (clearly!)
Someone had previously tried to fix the problem with duct tape!

Once onsite and on the roof, it was evident that the customer’s old rooftop solar system was very old.  In fact, the end had dislodged from the storage tank.  As the photos below attest, someone had tried to fix it previously by wrapping duct tape around the join.  With the intense heat and weather subjected to any rooftop solar hot water system, this is not a viable or long term repair option.

John explained to the customer that their old system was beyond economical repair and a new solar hot water system needed to be installed.  Once back on the ground, John was able to show them photos and, of course, they agreed that a new solar hot water system was required.

The new Rheem solar hot water system (model: 52L300) installed on the customer’s roof.
The best option was to install a new Rheem solar hot water system. 

John discussed rooftop solar hot water system prices and storage options.  The customer opted for a new Rheem Hiline stainless steel solar hot water system (model: 52L300).

The Rheem Hiline 52L Series solar hot water system directly heats water as it passes through collectors and rises back into the storage tank. Gas or electric boost options are available for days when the sun doesn’t shine. This Hiline 52L300 rooftop hot water system has a storage capacity of 300 litres and services 2-5 people. It has a stainless steel tank and is available in 4 x COLORBOND colours.  With a 10 year warranty and stainless steel tank, the new solar hot water system should last for many years to come.

John was able to install the new system in the same location. A new tempering valve was also installed to comply with AS3500 plumbing code. Upon completion, any associated rubbish was cleaned up and John took away the customer’s old solar hot water heater for recycling.

The customer was able to take advantage of the Government solar rebates available.

And finally, we completed the relevant solar hot water rebate forms with the customer so they could benefit from the generous State and Federation Government solar rebates currently available.  These rebates equate to a significant saving for customers upgrading or installing a new solar hot water system in their home or business. We then lodge these on the customer’s behalf.

Within a few hours, the customer was back enjoying trouble-free hot water and should do for years to come.

If you have questions about what solar hot water system will best suit the needs of your household, contact our solar specialists for advice. We’re here to help.

Hot water is our business and that’s why, when you deal with our highly-skilled, solar hot water specialists, you’re assured of service and expertise that is second to none.

Don’t waste time and money employing multiple trades.

Did you know that the installation of a new hot water system involves the setup of plumbing and electric components, and sometimes gas? 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, electrical and gas 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.
