Bosch 16E Continuous Flow Gas Hot Water Service

Bosch 16E Continuous Flow Gas Hot Water Experts

Recently our Jim’s Plumber was called out to look at a Bosch 16e instantaneous hot water unit that was leaking unexpectedly. The customer was also experiencing no hot water throughout their household. It was a cold rainy day – the last thing this customer needed was a cold shower on such a miserable day!

The plumber arrived within the hour of the customer calling us out. Our call centre and dispatch team always work hard to go above and beyond – we want your plumbing emergency to be resolved in the shortest amount of time possible. We know that plumbing emergencies are never planned for, so we do everything we can to ensure you can continue on with your day as planned. As fate would have it, the unit had lasted beyond its shelf life and unfortunately needed replacement.

In the end, the customer had hot water working within 2.5 hours of calling out an emergency plumber! The plumber had provided the customer with an obligation free quote for replacement. Upon the customer’s acceptance, the plumber installed the new unit straight away. This particular Bosch 16e hot water service is no longer manufactured and so the plumber replaced it with the equivalent Rheem hot water unit. We know that this new hot water boiler produces 26 litres of hot water per minute and rates well in its efficient energy star rating.

Instantaneous hot water systems such as the Bosch 16e continuous flow allow you you to save on your energy bills. Continuous flow or instantaneous units mean you are only paying for water as it is being used. Unlike a storage tank, hot water is not being stored and kept constantly heated in a tank that may or may not be used in the near future. For example, a storage tank will continue to use gas or electricity to keep the water in a tank hot, even if you are not home using any hot water.

24/7 Service

These instantaneous units are fairly small, so they do not take up a lot of room along the side of your house or along your back wall. They are not an eyesore when compared with larger storage tanks. As part of our dedication to quality customer service, our after-service customer service team follows up with many of our customers to obtain feedback on the experience the customer has had with Jim’s Plumbing. This particular customer has reported that they were very pleased they were able to have hot water up and running very quickly, and are more than happy with this new unit as it provides all the hot water they need.

Interest free payment plans** are available on hot water heater replacements to help ease any financial stress this burden may cause. If your hot water heater is leaking, or you have no hot water, we can often have a plumber to you within the hour*.
