Rheem 330 (130L) Gas Hot Water Unit

Plumber Near Me was recently called out to the home of a small family. They had just arrived home from a holiday and their Rheem gas hot water system was not working. The customer would be home all day but we had a plumber in the area ready to go, so they were able to be on the client’s doorstep within the hour*.

The unit was an old model and the customer had been having some issues well before the family holiday, but it was still getting the job done (mostly).

The plumber went to inspect the unit at the rear of the house and could see the hot water system was at least 15 years old. It had some rust and a lot of the parts were quite old inside as well. The plumber said he could try to repair the unit but was strongly recommending a replacement.

The client already suspected this might be the case and was happy to get a new unit installed. The 135 litre Rheem he had was very reliable but as the family had another baby on the way, something slightly bigger would be more beneficial to them.

The plumber recommended that a newer Rheem model in the 160 litre tank size would be more than adequate. The call was made to his local supplier who had one ready to go, so the technician got to work.

The customer had a lot of respect for the Rheem he had, and chose to stay with the same brand, which is not uncommon. Rheem is the market leader in hot water systems and has been for the past 50 years, so sticking with a brand name you can trust and one that has proved itself is always a smart choice.

A few hours later, and the job was complete. The system was already heating water for that afternoon and the plumber cleaned the site and removed the old system. In the end, it was a quick and hassle-free visit. The clients were without hot water for only a small time, they got a more modern and efficient system as well as a 12-month guarantee on all parts and labour.

Not only do we charge the same rates at all hours, but we always aim to be at your door within an hour of your call*. We’ll provide an upfront, fixed-price quote before we start working. Keep reading to find out more about our range of interest-free payment options**.

Your Rheem Stellar 330 (130L) Expert

In another case, a Rheem Stellar gas storage system had been installed more than 20 years ago on the good word of another plumber. The system featured a 10-year warranty which had long since expired. A call was made to Plumber Near Me to see if anything could be done to keep the old system going. One of our plumbers was dispatched and arrived within an hour of the customer’s call*.

Upon arrival, the plumber assessed the hot water service only to find that due to a poor maintenance schedule and plain wear and tear, there were several problems with this old Stellar system, including a failing thermocouple, gas control valve and relief valve.

Relief valves for this model are recommended to be changed every five years to avoid a potential explosion within the cylinder. If these valves are not changed, pressure can build up inside the system due to water being heated, causing expansion within the tank. It then has the potential to explode with up to 1000 kpa of pressure, which is extremely dangerous.

Due to the number of faults found in the Rheem unit, the decision was made to replace the entire system. It was simply not economical to repair the existing model.

The plumber gave the customer a no-obligation quote to supply and install a new Rheem Stellar as per their request. The customer had been impressed with the lifespan, performance and reliability of the old hot water system, even though it had only been serviced once.

Interest Free** Rheem Stellar 330 Service

The customer was happy with the quoted price to supply and install the latest model equivalent – the Rheem Stellar 160 litre storage system – which was then fitted.

The plumber was able to upgrade the gas service to suit the new system and this was included in the overall price along with removal and disposal of the old tank, all-new high-performance valves and lagging, plus a 12-month warranty on all workmanship and parts supplied by Plumber Near Me.

The customer opted to use one of our interest free** payment options, which are available to all eligible customers. This gave them the time to budget their payments in convenient instalments.

It’s easy to apply for an interest free** payment plan. Simply choose a plan with one of our providers – Zip or Humm. You have the flexibility of weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments, depending on which provider you select. Some plans even accept a $0 deposit, so there’s no upfront cost.

Your plumber can take you through the easy application process and approval usually takes only a few minutes. Then your plumbing professional can get your hot water flowing again. If you’re not interested in a payment plan, we also accept cash, cheque, EFTPOS and credit card (Visa, Mastercard and American Express).
