Pyrox 250 Internal Instantaneous

Pyrox 250 Internal Instantaneous Hot Water System

A Pyrox gas instant hot water system is an internal unit; meaning it is designed to be installed inside rather than outside.

This Pyrox 250 instantaneous hot water system has been discontinued and, based on the condition of the unit, it is likely to be a ripe old age of 20-25 years old. Due to our plumbers being fully qualified hot water specialists, we were still able to repair the unit which was not delivering hot water.

A great advantage of using Plumber Near Me is our ability to source the required parts for a majority of gas hot water systems, to overhaul the water section which involves replacing of the diaphragm, washers and O-rings.

In repairing this unit, we freed up the gas valve allowing it to move more freely. We also set the gas and water pressures at ideal settings, and by the end of the job, the unit was operating almost like new.

On completion of the work, we advised the customer that should there be any further problems down the track with this hot water system, we would suggest relocating the unit outside of the house. This would free up some of the space in the laundry, lessening the chances of having gas or water leaks within the house.

Rheem Takes Over the Brand

Pyrox was a brand where, 25 years ago, there were many units installed. Since then, Rheem has purchased the brand and it has been superseded. Rheem has introduced its own continuous flow range of hot water units.

Some parts are still available for the Pyrox instantaneous heaters. However, due to their age, customers need to assess whether they would consider spending money on repairing this hot water system or spending that little bit extra and replacing it with a much more current model.

It’s a question worth asking even more so now, as there are now electronic ignition models which have no pilot lights and have a between a 5 and 6 star energy efficiency rating compared to the Pyrox unit which would have only around 3 star energy rating.
