Electrical hot water cylinder

An electrical hot water cylinder is also known as an electric water heater. It typically consists of a tank with an electric heating element inside. The heating element heats the water, which is then stored in the tank until it is needed.

Solar hot water cylinder

Solar hot water cylinder

A solar hot water cylinder uses energy from the sun to heat water for domestic or commercial use. It consists of a cylinder, usually made of stainless steel or copper. The cylinder is connected to a solar panel or collector, which absorbs energy from the sun and transfers it to the water in the cylinder. The heated water is then stored in the cylinder and can be used for a variety of purposes, such as showers, washing dishes, and doing laundry. Solar hot water cylinders are an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to provide hot water for homes and businesses.

Heat pump water heaters are a type of appliance that uses electricity to move heat from the air or ground to a tank to heat water. They work by using a refrigerant and a compressor to transfer heat from the surrounding air or ground into a tank of water, which is then stored for use in various household or commercial applications. Heat pump water heaters are known for their high energy efficiency and low operating costs, as they use less electricity than traditional electric water heaters. They are also environmentally friendly, as they do not produce greenhouse gas emissions during operation. Heat pump water heaters are a popular choice for homeowners and businesses looking to save energy and reduce their carbon footprint.

Types of Storage Cylinders

Mains Pressure or High Pressure

Provides you with more options for new tapware. Has a higher pressure water in the shower and reduces the time it takes for hot water to get to the taps. Although more hot water is usually used.

Low Pressure

Want to help save the planet and save money while doing it? Changing to a low-pressure cylinder decreases the amount of water your household is using, therefore, saving you money while saving water resources.

Smart tanks

Smart tanks determine how you use hot water and only heat the water just before you need it. Smart tanks reduce heat loss by keeping water hot when you are not using it.

Do You Have No Hot Water? Are you running out of hot water?

This is a simple list of common faults some you can check yourself. Do not open any electrical covers as there will be 240 volts inside.

No hot water, from an electrical perspective, is either:

  • Faulty element
  • Failed thermostat
  • Fuse blown
  • Power to the water heater faulty e.g. break in the cable
  • Switch faulty
  • Ripple Control faulty at the meter board
  • There are many plumbing problems that can result in no hot water such as water leaks
  • There is a difference between the water is cold and the hot tap has no water discharging from it. This often caused by the washer sticking to the seat of the tap or the supply tank is empty or the water is off or air locked.
  • Tempering valve is faulty i.e. the water is hot but the valve is faulty so the water is either cold or warm. Check the top of the tank, check if it is warm.

Gas Hot Water Heating Cylinders – No Hot Water

  • The pilot is out, or there is a problem with the gas supply, if it is a storage tank.
  • Power is off, if it is an electronic unit.
  • The batteries are flat in a battery unit. Only some mobile and older Bosch units.
  • There is a problem with the gas supply.
  • The water heater is faulty.
  • There has been a power surge and the surge protector has tripped inside the unit.
  • Control pad is off.

It is likely that if we take out a low-pressure hot water system and install a high-pressure hot water system there will be fewer showers but they will be more intense for the same volume tank. The solution for more showers is a bigger tank or continuous flow gas system.

Is Your Hot Water Cylinder Leaking?

Now is the time to decide on what hot water system you want. We can straight swap your current hot water cylinder with the same tank type, or change the energy source or how the tank is fed with water. We can install valve fed tank that results in better water pressure. Or upgrade to a gas continuous flow system.
