Hot Water Systems

At Ryan Old Plumbing, we take time to assess the Hot Water Unit to determine the issue and use our professional knowledge to make recommendations and provide solutions. We send proposals for replacements and/or repairs which are discussed with the homeowner to explain the process and involve them in the plan.

We also organise our own trusted electrician to reconnect Hot Water Units to make sure we provide a complete package to our customers.
Once we have the approval, we attend to site as soon as possible. We can also schedule the job based on the customer’s time preference. This includes removal of the current water heater, supplying and installing a new hot water system with all appropriate valves required, Once completed, the installation will be tested. We then take away the rubbish from the site and leave you with a brand new and working Hot Water Unit.
Ryan Old Plumbing nurtures all its customers, we recommend a regular maintenance check of Hot Water Units be done to avoid wasting pennies and save money in the long run. We know how important a hot shower is, so we will work quickly and with as little inconvenience to our valued customers as possible.

Why do you need a Hot Water System Replacement?

Generally, hot water systems can only last 8-12 years mark. If that time is getting near, be sure to keep an eye out for changes in the water colour and smell and water temperature to determine if you need a hot water system replacement. At some point, it is better to just replace it than to repair it.

Ryan Old Plumbing has been installing hot water systems for years! The problems you will see below indicate that your hot water system NEEDS to be replaced.

Recurrent problems that necessitate repairs

You might say that these issues don’t require you to replace your hot water system but to just have them fixed. However, if you start experiencing these issues all the time, then we recommend a replacement for your hot water system. Moreover, if you find your bills too high, you must decide on replacing it already, rather than continuing to waste money on repairs

  • No hot water
  • Water is leaking
  • Unpleasant smell and taste of the water
  • Water is there, but it’s not hot enough/change in temperature is frequent
  • Continuous loud noise
  • Colour of the water that is coming out of the faucet/shower isn’t clear.
  • Age of the hot water system

If you are aware of the age of your Hot Water Unit, and it’s approaching the end of its service life, you may want to consider replacing it, before it starts giving you a major inconvenience. Feel free to call us anytime to get a free consultation. Our plumbers have been dealing with hot water units for years and we are confident that we can diagnose your problem. In some instances, we will have to do a site visit to physically assess the hot water unit. We will then discuss your options while on site and with your approval do job on the spot.

It often happens that a heater works excellently well, and just before its due to expire, it gives a major leak, which is more like a flood. If this happens, you may experience expensive repairs from water damage, in addition to the cost of replacing the device itself. We are here to help. Call us now if you need our expert advice.

Lack of Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance is necessary for keeping the hot water system working well and last longer. However, if you have not been doing this regularly, you can anticipate the hot water unit to start giving you a lot of problems and may fail even earlier before its expected end of service life.

We will assess it to make sure that all the valves are working properly, the lines are unobstructed and the tanks is free from leaks. We guarantee our work and your satisfaction!
