Rheem 170 litre storage gas hot water system leaking from the tank

Rheem 170 Litre

Three days ago Jim’s Plumbing was called out to fix a 170 litre Rheem gas storage hot water system that was leaking from the base of the tank. The customer reported that the unit had stopped producing hot water over the last few days and was concerned it may need replacing given that it was over 17 years of age. Much to their delight, a Jim’s Plumber arrived onsite within one hour of their phone call and quickly got to work diagnosing the problem.

Upon close inspection, our plumber found that the unit had rusted through completely at the base and was beyond repair. Below are some images of the customer’s existing Rheem170 litre gas storage hot water system that appears worn and tired and well in need of replacement. If you have an older hot water system that you think might need replacing, call Jim’s Plumbing on 1300 068 480.

Our customer explained that they were very happy with the performance of their existing Rheem unit and so our plumber suggested replacing it with a current model Rheem 4 star 170 litre gas storage hot water system.
