Gallant Plumbing recently carried out hot water repairs in Box Hill South. This particular water system was a Hardie Dux which was manufactured back in 1997, so it really wasn’t that surprising that this one might’ve had some technical problems by this point.
Dux is among the most versatile brands when it comes to the different types and sizes of hot water systems available. They offer gas and electrical systems, solar hot water systems and the ‘next generation’ continuous flow range, which is enabled by innovative technology that recycles water in the system through condensation.
However due to its age, the gas hot water system we worked on was not operating properly, specifically the gas control valve located outside the unit, thermostat and the heat limiting component.
A closer inspection revealed that the thermostat itself was faulty. And since a thermostat is supposed to specifically measure and adjust the amount of heat applied to the water, an issue here led to day-to-day fluctuations in the water temperature in this property.

If your heating system is not working, quickly check the functionality of the water system by looking at the pilot light. This light can at times go off so in case it does, you’d have to re-light it. You must follow the instructions which are normally located either on the tank itself or in the accompanying instruction manual. If the pilot light is on and it happens that your other gas appliances are working but there’s no hot water coming out, be sure to contact Gallant Plumbing on 1300 830 956.
