Plumbing in West Auckland

Plumbing in West Auckland is always a wonderful experience. This client wanted their hot water cylinder upgraded to mains pressure and connected to their underfloor heating which is a relatively straightforward and stress free job. What made things easy was the location of the client’s existing cylinder.

Because the hot water cylinder was located outside it meant we were able to remove the broken cylinder and install the new one without much hassle. This is what makes plumbing in West Auckland so enjoyable. Most of the homes have their hot water cylinder situated outside, making the whole process quick and easy. It means we are able to access all the plumbing easily and have a little more space to move around.

There are also benefits for the client too. Having your hot water cylinder outdoors provides a couple of benefits. Firstly, it frees up space inside giving you another closet for storage or room to expand your kitchen during a renovation. Secondly, if your hot water cylinder was to leak, then your home would be protected as the water would simply spill outside rather than into your carpet.

If you are in West Auckland and need some plumbing done, then call the team at Hot Water Cylinders NZ. Contact us online or call 0800 832 638.

Leaking Vulcan Freeloader replacement in Milford

Our client had a leaking Vulcan Freeloader, which was new in the 90s. The issue was there was no hot water from the Vulcan Freeloader, and upon investigation, we found that the tank was leaking internally. This is not uncommon for old Vulcan Freeloaders. When the leak starts, it can often drip onto the pilot light putting out the flame and leaving the tank with no hot water. In the case of this job and for most of the callouts we get for Vulcan Freeloaders, the issue was not reparable and required a replacement tank.

Luckily for our client, the timing lined up perfectly with the release of our new deal for a replacement. Our new “all including” sale features everything involved and no need for third-party contractors! You are left with a system that can produce enough hot water for the largest of familys, while still maintaining the efficiency of a smaller tank or an on-demand system. Not only that, The Rheem Stellar is one of the most efficient domestic gas storage water heaters available in New Zealand.Ā Available in Natural Gas only, this water heater has high flow rate capabilities making it ideal for homes with more than one bathroom and with moderate to high water use.

No electrical connections are necessary so the Stellar will continue to work even if the power goes out. Stylish design and construction carries a 10 year warranty. Don’t wait till it’s too late.
