Keep an eye on your low pressure cylinder

We always try to push the boundaries here at hotwatercylinders.nz. This month with unbeatable low pressure hot water cylinder specials just click the link to view.

Our special offer of $999 includes everything required to get you back up and running. In New Zealand thousands of homes still maintain low pressure systems that are over 40 years old! If you have a high power bill it could well be that your thermostat is not working correctly allowing the element to heat much longer then actually required. As an example, if your thermostat is set to 60 degrees and the reading is not accurate your hot water cylinder will continue using power until boiling point, causing other issues within your hot water cylinder system.

Its very important to understand that 90% of time low pressure cylinders start leaking because of the lack of regular maintenance. if you don’t service your hot water cylinder the valves/thermostat will fail to their job and cause excessive temperatures that will in turn cause higher expansion and contraction levels, something most older models wont be comfortable with

Our maintenance cost is as low as $120 + GST, if its too late for maintenance our replacement cost including cylinder is $999 + GST.

Let us know if you have any questions..

Another successful installation in under 4 hours! This Rheem Steller is the most efficient hot water cylinder in New Zealand (as per Rheems statement). The Stellar does not require an electrical connection and will continue to provide hot water despite a power outage.Designed to be installed externally and out of the way it still offers a high flow rate making it ideal for homes with multiple bathrooms. Perfect for scenarios where two instant heaters have been specified due to lack of flow or hot water distance travel.

Vulcan Freeloader gas water heater cylinder repair or replacement?

Do you have a Vulcan Freeloader gas water heater? It amazes me how many of these gas hot water cylinders are installed in metropolitan areas despite the fact that we replace dozens every year. We repair an even larger amount every year.

If your vulcan freeloader has stopped working don’t panic you might not need a new one yet. Sometimes the flame can be smudged or the magnetic flame driven thermocouple can be worn out. Under such circumstances the cylinder can be revived. Generally if the freeloader is too old any repair is simply not economic and we recommend replacement. You can trust that newer models are much more efficient in gas usage, in retaining temperatures inside the tank and comply to all modern standards making sure you and your family remain safe.

There are several cost efficient options we can recommend depending on your circumstances. Whether your replacing your freeloader or needing a fix speak to New Zealand’s hot water cylinder specialists.
