New Rheem Hi Line Solar Hot Water System Installation

New Rheem Hi Line Solar Hot Water System installation

Early one Saturday morning our call centre received a frantic call for help. One of our loyal customers had noticed that water was streaming out of their roof based hot water system and down the side of their house. To make matters worse, the showers in the home were running cold and she needed to get to work!

Luckily our plumber was able to attend the property within the hour. When he arrived, it appeared as if a waterfall had been installed on the rooftop overlooking the main bedroom. He quickly climbed up on the roof to assess the issue, wanting to stop the leak before the customer’s prized petunia garden became a swamp!

It rapidly became clear that both the hot water system and its panels were aged and could not be repaired, however, luckily our plumber could provide our customer with a comprehensive quote for supply and installation of a new system to be fitted the same day.

Our plumber sent our customer off to work with the promise that by the time she returned, hot water to the property would be restored. Fitting a new solar hot water system, particularly on one on a slanted tiled roof requires skill and expertise.

Luckily our plumbers have years of experience in the industry and have safety training to prepare them for the task. Our plumber worked tirelessly to install the new system, first by removing the old tank and panels and then replacing the panels. It was a beautiful day but there was no time to stop to admire the view!

When our customer returned home from work, she was ecstatic to find that the work had been completed. She could barely believe that it had been done so quickly, however, the shiny new system and panels pictured on her roof and the hot water in her shower told the tale. The Rheem Hiline was the perfect choice for this customer, with its 300L capacity meaning that it can provide water for 2-5 people.

The electrical boosting also means that even at times of the year where it is cold or overcast, up to 160L of hot water can still be rapidly obtained. The system also comes with a 5-year warranty, giving our customers extra peace of mind.
