Box Hill Hot Water System.
The team at Gallant Plumbing attended a Hot water system issue in Box Hill. Arriving on site to investigate, our Melbourne plumber found the hot water service was only producing cold water. Looking further,our plumber found no pilot light was present.
This clients hot water system is a solar unit so the next step was to check the solar pump control temperature. This was all found to be ok, with the temperature sitting at 35 degrees. He then checked the building pump controller circulation temperature, which was showing and error code, temperature too low. The final check before taking action was to check the building circulation pump was operating as normal. The plumber confirmed all was running correctly.
After gaining a view of the entire situation, our best plumber began works. He first checked the hot water service booster controller which was displaying an error code, temperature low. Our best plumber then isolated the water and removed the cold water inlet filter. The booster filter was clogged with debris, so the plumber cleaned and reinstated the filter. Then reinstating water supply to the booster , this fired up the unit and the booster was now running at 75 degrees.
Resetting the booster hot water service and the building circulation pump controllers saw both temperatures rising. Our Melbourne plumber monitored the temperature rise to establish if the hot water system was running correctly. Looking a the buildings existing circulation set temperature had been set at 60 degrees and all seemed to be running correctly. The plumber then made some recommendations to the client.
Installing a bag filter system to this building hot water service will reduce the hot water service down time, due to the booster cold water inlet filter clogging. If a bag filter is installed, annual maintenance would be required. If no bag filter, maintenance will be on a quarterly basis to clean the booster inlet filter.
