Dux 135 litre 135V-NA hot water service leaks after 18 years!

Dux 135

Wow! Today Jim’s Plumbing was called out to assess an extremely old Dux 135 litre 135V-NA hot water system that had only just started leaking after 18 years of reliable service.

Customer’s 18 year old Dux 135L gas storage system prior to removal

As you can see from the compliance plate below the unit was manufactured in May 1998 and our client advised they had had no issues with it since it had been installed almost two decades ago.

Not surprisingly the 135V-NA Dux model is no longer manufactured as has actually had a number of different models superseded it in the last 18 years.

It is very rare that we see a mains pressure hot water system last this long, as usually, they require repairs or even replacement much earlier on than in this particular instance.

The customer understood that the unit itself was well and truly beyond repair due to its age and on the advice of our experienced plumber, decided to replace it with a 135 litre Dux Prodigy 5 gas storage system.

Above are some images of the customer’s tired-looking Dux 135 litre system that was well and truly ready for replacement.

If you have an old hot water system that perhaps isn’t performing quite as well as it used to or is in desperate need of replacement give Jim’s Plumbing a call on 1300 068 480 and we’ll find the unit that is just right for you.

The Dux Prodigy 5 gas storage unit combines the latest in heating technology to deliver a large amount of hot water whilst still maintaining an outstanding 5.3 star energy rating.

When you compare this with the 18 year old Dux’s 3 star energy rating it’s not hard to see that this family will now save a significant amount in gas and electricity bills, thanks to their new energy efficient hot water service.
