Rheem Alpha low pressure made in 1967

Rheem_AlphaHard to believe but we got called to this 48 year old Rheem Alpha hot water cylinder because a mains pressure upgrade was requested and not because it was leaking!

A typical low pressure installation with a vacuum relief valve and 15mm hot water feed to the house. No Seismic restraint or tray despite there being another property underneath. Safe-trays are a required by law in Australia but not in New Zealand if the property affected is not a separate title. We from Hot Water Cylinder NZ still believe this is good practice, ensuring that if and when a leak occurs the water can be managed and drained preventing damage to your own and others property. We are currently offering a FREE CYLINDER TRAY with every mains pressure upgrade! Call us for more info.
