Replace Central Type 24 Continuous Flow Hot Water Heater

Replace Central Type 24 Continuous Flow Hot Water Heater with Rheem 20 Continuous Flow Gas Hot Water System

Our hot water system specialist from Jim’s Plumbing attended an interesting job today as this was a hot water system that we had never heard of before.

The plumber that attended also got in touch with many of our hot water system specialists in our large team and none had ever heard of this particular system previously throughout their many years of working in this field.

The Central Type 24 continuous flow hot water heater was producing no hot water and we were unable to source parts with any of our suppliers due to its rarity. We also googled searched the unit as a last resort and soon realised there was nothing available.

It is not very often that we come across a unit that any of our fully qualified technicians have never seen and that does not come up in a google search. Due to this we found it would be more beneficial in the long run for the customer to have a new system installed to save them the extra time and money it would require to source parts.

We gave our client a full quote to supply and install a new Rheem 20L continuous flow gas hot water system. Which will ensure that any maintenance issues in the future will able to be easily rectified as it is a common unit throughout Australia.

The Rheem 20 continuous flow has an impressive 6 star energy rating and comes with a 10 year warranty on the heat exchanger with the manufacturer. The heat exchanger is a tank within the unit which heats and runs through coils. This means that once a hot water tap is turned on the water goes through the unit and is passed through the coils to the hot tap and hot water is only producing when the system is used – saving on high energy bills and a lower carbon footprint. There is also a 3 year warranty on labour and on other components of the hot water heater.

After offering the customer with a few different payment options such as an interest free payment plan**, cash, cheque, credit card and EFTPOS, our customer opted for our interest free plan which we were able to organise the same day. With a quick over the phone application which our plumber went through with the customer. We also advised that there would be no extra charges if the customer decides to pay off the balance any earlier.

Our plumber is always happy to attend and access any hot water system be it old or new, 24/7 including call public holidays and weekends just call us.

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*.
