Can I Install a Second-Hand System?

It is often recommended that you purchase an entirely new unit when looking to have a hot water unit installed. You don’t know the history of the unit that you have purchased, the age, quality or the current state.

Rinnai offers an extensive range and is considered to be one of Australia’s best and leading hot water systems, meaning you can expect quality and reliability when installing this brand in your home.

When installing a new hot water unit, we often find customers have attempted a DIY installation, rather than organising to have a professional plumber and gas fitter to attend.

This often leads to further problems either down the track or immediately, which is why it is recommended to have a professional attend to your hot water system needs.

My Hot Water System is Leaking. Should I Replace It?

To avoid pressure from building up within the hot water system tank, a pressure relief valve has been installed on each hot water system which drips at a steady rate. This is considered to be a normal leak.

However, if you find your hot water system excessively leaking from this pipe or anywhere else from the actual unit itself, as in the top of the unit or from the pipework, it’s definitely time to call a hot water specialist and potentially look into replacing the system altogether.

Plumber Near Me is skilled with working on all types of hot water systems; including gas, electric and solar powered, particularly Rinnai hot water systems such as heat pumps, storage and continuous flow tanks.

If you feel like your hot water system is excessively leaking and needs a professional to look into it, Plumber Near Me is who you should call. We can have a plumber can attend to assist you with your enquiry today, and in most cases within the hour* for emergency call outs.

We understand how worrying it can be to have a leaking hot water system, which is why we offer a same day service to all customers. We aim to ensure that our customers and their homes remain safe when dealing with their hot water system.

Are You Experiencing Low Water Pressure?

Low water pressure can be a frustrating problem to deal with, especially when you’re trying to enjoy a hot shower or need flowing hot water to wash your dishes.

If you’re experiencing low water pressure in your Rinnai water heater, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue before calling in a professional. Here’s what you can do:

  • Check other taps: Start by checking if the low water pressure is affecting all taps in your home or just the hot water system. Turn on both hot and cold water taps in different areas of your house to see if the problem is isolated to the hot water unit. If it’s only affecting the hot water, then you know the issue lies within your water heater.
  • Inspect the shut-off valve: Locate the shut-off valve for your hot water system and make sure it’s fully open. Sometimes, the valve may have been accidentally closed, restricting the water flow. Turn the valve counter-clockwise to ensure it’s fully open.
  • Check for leaks: Look for any visible leaks in the hot water pipes or connections. Even a small leak can lead to reduced water pressure. If you find any leaks, tighten the connections or replace any damaged parts. However, if you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, it’s best to call a licensed plumber.
  • Clean the aerator: Sediment or mineral build up in the tap aerator can restrict water flow and cause low pressure. Unscrew the aerator from the affected tap and clean it by soaking it in vinegar overnight. Rinse it thoroughly and screw it back onto the tap.

If you’ve tried these steps and are still experiencing low water pressure in your hot water system, it’s time to call a professional plumber from Plumber Near Near Me. They will have the expertise to diagnose and fix the underlying issue, ensuring you can enjoy a steady flow of hot water again.

Is Your Pilot Light Not Staying Ignited?

If you have a Rinnai gas hot water unit, a common issue you may encounter is the pilot light not staying ignited. When the pilot light keeps going out, it can prevent your water heater from functioning properly and leave you without hot water.

Here’s what you can do if you’re facing this problem:

  • Check for drafts: Drafts in the vicinity of your water heater can cause the pilot light to go out. Make sure all windows and doors in the area are closed tightly. Additionally, check for any cracks or openings in the walls or floors nearby that could be letting in drafts.
  • Clean the pilot orifice: Over time, the pilot orifice can become dirty or clogged with debris, obstructing the flame and causing it to extinguish. Turn off the gas supply and use a small brush or compressed air to clean the orifice gently. Be cautious and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Check the thermocouple: The thermocouple is a safety device that detects if the pilot light is lit. If it malfunctions, it may shut off the gas supply, causing the pilot light to go out. Inspect the thermocouple for any signs of damage or corrosion. If necessary, replace it with a new one.
  • Adjust the pilot flame: If the flame is too weak or too strong, it can affect the stability of the pilot light. Refer to your water heater’s manual to find the proper flame adjustment procedure. Typically, you’ll need to locate the pilot light adjustment screw and carefully turn it to achieve the desired flame size.

If you’ve attempted these troubleshooting steps and your pilot light still won’t stay ignited, it’s advisable to contact a qualified technician. They will have the expertise to diagnose and repair any underlying issues, ensuring your hot water unit operates smoothly and reliably.
