Your Local Expert
This weekend at Jim’s Plumbing we received a call out to a customer having issues with their hot water system. The customer explained that her hot water system had suddenly stopped producing hot water and was worried about how long she would need to wait without hot water until a plumber could attend. Fortunately, unlike other plumbing companies, Jim’s Plumbing operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including weekends and public holidays. Not only were we available for a weekend call out, but our plumber was able to attend within the hour* of the initial booking call!
When the plumber arrived to site he immediately got to work and assessed the gas hot water system. The hot water system which our plumber was dealing with was an Aquamax 135 Litre Gas system which was recessed in the wall. The issue causing the cease in hot water was pretty standard for our plumber, which was diagnosed as an issue which our expert hot water system specialist deals with on a day to day basis, which was very reassuring for our customer.
Our plumber did standard testing on the hot water system for the property and had diagnosed the problem to be associated with a faulty thermocouple in the hot water system. It is essential for your thermocouple to be in complete perfect working condition to abide by standard safety gas and plumbing procedure. A thermocouple is basically a sensor which sends an electronic signal to the gas valve, it is considered as a safety device which senses when the pilot light is switched on.
This was a simple fix for our hot water specialist. Another advantage of using Jim’s Plumbing is that they come prepared for all emergency and maintenance plumbing repairs as we stock an extensive range of parts and fittings in all plumber vans, which worked to our customer’s advantage this weekend. Within only a short time frame of making the initial booking call, our plumber had the hot water tank completely repaired and ready to be fired up, meaning our customer had hot water almost as quickly as she lost it.
