Replacement Old Rheem Optima for New Rheem Stellar

Replacement Old Rheem Optima for New Rheem Stellar

After thinking all hope was lost – ringing company after company and no one being available. Our customer then stumbled across Jims Plumbing while researching online, and decided to give us a call on 1300 068 480. It was the day before the Easter break and the customer required a new hot water system to be installed, finding they currently had no hot water and the hot water system leaking from the bottom.

The customer explained to our friendly call centre operator that they needed someone out as soon as possible as they had quests staying over the long weekend. Thankfully, Jim’s Plumbing has a large fleet of plumbers and we were able to organise one of their local plumbers to attend that day.

Only a few short hours after the customers initial call our plumber arrived, our customer showed us to this Rheem Optima storage hot water system 810135NO, and explained they wanted a new one installed ASAP, our plumber got to work, assessing all the connections and providing our customer with a quote for the supply and installation of a new Rheem Stellar Stainless Steel 250 litre hot water system, we were also able to offer an interest free payment plan*, good news for the customer, who was not expecting this to happen. After the payment plan was organised our plumber got to work. First sourcing the unit from one of our many suppliers.

Our quote also included the removal of the old hot water system and dumping, ensuring to leave no mess for the customers soon arriving guests.
