We recently had our Hot Water Plumber head out to Ivanhoe for a burst hot water system. Here’s how they managed the problem and came up with some on the spot solutions to other issues that popped up while doing the Hot Water System Installation.
The hot water unit (135L Rheem) had burst and the unit did not have the safe stay installed. This meant that the water eventually leaked onto the carpet in the hallway. It was after realising this that our HWS Plumber turned the gas supply off and shut the water supply to the Hot Water System. This made the unit safe and then he commenced draining the water out of the unit with a hose.
After the unit was drained, the hot water system was removed from the site and disposed of by our storeroom manager. He then fitted the connection points to the new hot water unit and installed the new hot water system to the existing water and gas lines and filled the unit. He opened a hot water tap in the bathroom to get rid of the air while the HWS was filling up. Once the water was running freely he closed the tap off and went to inspect the unit for leaks. He found that both the inlet and outlet side were free of any leaks.
After reconnecting the final lines our plumber completed soapy water tests on all gas connections to make sure there were no leaks. There was none found. Finally testing the burner pressure and finding it was working perfectly. Our plumber even took time after the job was done to explain the manual that came with the new hot water system and how to adjust the temperature.
