Don’t blow money on a bad hot water plumber
Hot water heater problems are no joke, which means caution is needed when hiring a licensed Sydney hot water plumber
Hot water issues happen at the most inconvenient times: You wake up to find hot water pouring from a collapsed ceiling; return home after a vacation, ankle-deep in water; or discover your hot water tank is just not heating the water
It might sound sensationalist, but when your hot water unit packs it in, it is generally safe to say you automatically go into panic mode.
You search for a local plumber – whom you find either with the aid of Google or in the Yellow Pages – and hope for the best. But the trouble is – if the plumber isn’t fully licensed and affiliated with the trade association and they do a bad job up, cold water might be the least of your concerns.
Poor hot water installations and the primary need for hot water heater manufacturers to be price competitive within the market have also prompted hot water system manufacturers to be more stringent with any warranty claims.
It is important to note that a hot water heater manufacturer is within their right to void a warranty claim if the hot water system installation is non-compliant with the National Standards.
There is, however, a distinct line between product failure and failure due to poor installation.
Typical problems that arise when using non licenced hot water plumbers can include leaks, poor water pressure, bad odours from pipes and drains, flooding, damp and mould. Other more serious issues can include contamination of the drinking water, scalding and burns, the breeding of disease, and potential tank explosions.
