  • The water is a brown rusty colour

We will determine all of this by a site inspection.

Plumd in Plumbing technician would then determine by speaking with the home owner on their options of what would need to be done to either service, replace, or upgrade to a different type of hot water heater.

There are a few different types of hot water heaters such as Gas, Electric, Solar.

Gas

  • A four person household commonly needs a 135-170L tank
  • Theres also an option of an instantaneous system
  • Usually installed outside because of venting requirements.
  • Has an energy efficiency star rating
  • LPG (Liquid petroleum gas) bottles are an alternative to
    natural gas, but they significantly cost more to run.

Electric

  • A four person household commonly needs a 125-160L tank
  • Can be installed inside or outside
  • Electric instantaneous water heaters are also available
  • An electric system is usually cheaper to buy and install but
    more expensive to keep running

Solar

  • A four person household commonly needs about two solar
    panels for a collection area and a 300-360L tank.
  • If the panels can’t be installed in a fitting location, they may
    be less productive and you will need a larger collection area.
  • The shortage tank usually has a electric or gas booster
    component to keep the water hot on days with not enough
    sunshine.
  • Solar hot water systems are more expensive initially, and
    more time consuming to install, but a good system will pay
    for itself in the long run because of the low costs to run it.
