New Rheem Stellar Gas 360 Hot Water System 850360N0

Your Local Expert

Our fully qualified Jim’s plumber attended only a few weeks ago to this customer’s property to repair an old hot water system – and while the hot water system was still working fine the customer decided after some research online on their current unit and decided to upgrade. We had originally booked the job in to install a dishwasher but our customer surprised us with this request once we got onsite to do so.

Of course, our plumber is always prepared to complete 95% of jobs straight away due to our fully stocked vans partnered with our plumbing knowledge and expertise. After fully uninstalling the old dishwasher and installing the new one.

We were able to begin preparing a quote for our customer on a new hot water system. After some discussion with the customer we gave a quote for the supply and install of a new Rheem Stellar gas 360 hot water system as well as the option of our interest free payment plan** for the full quote which the customer gladly accepted, and after our plumbers quick discussion over the phone to organise the payment plan we got to work.

The old Aquamax G340SS Gas Storage was easy to uninstall by the plumber, ensuring every bit of our work was done to Australian regulations. There was only a little gas pipework alteration to be done for the changeover of these two units. We tested all existing pipework to ensure no gas was leaking or dropping in pressure before doing the replacement. Then we tested everything again after the work was done for soundness and issued the customer with a gas certificate of compliance.  Depending on your property there are models of this unit that fit both Natural Gas and Propane (LPG) with a great energy rating of 5 stars.

This system was a 160 litre hot water capacity and is able to deliver 360 litres of hot water for its first hour and has a fast replacement of water used with a high recovery of 200 litres per hour and includes mains pressure – allowing multiple showers at any given time. There is a 10 year warranty on the cylinder and superflue, 5 year warranty on labour of cylinder and superflue, and a 1 year warranty on all other parts and labour. After our installation, our customer asked that they keep the old Aquamax hot water system, as it still worked and they planned on selling it. We were definitely able to oblige – saving us from going to the dump. And just like that, another job is done, and a very happy customer!

No Interest Ever!** payment plan options 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*.
