Rheem Loline 270L Solar Hot Water Service

Rheem Loline 270L Solar Hot Water Service

We recently attended to Rheem Premier Loline 270L solar hot water unit. This system was 12 years old and was showing signs the storage tank was in need of replacing. Eventually all systems will need replacing, storage systems often start to show signs like w reddish-brown colour in the water, this is rust inside the tank.

Eventfully the rust will deteriorate the tank and will then cause it to leak, and therefore require replacement.

As we deal with all different types of systems from storage tanks to continuous hot water unit to solar. Our plumbers are able to confidently and quickly replace all systems with either like for like replacement of a complete swap from gas to electric or vice versa.

The Loline system by Rheem has many advantages. The first is the solar component. These heat up during the day, providing energy to heat the water, then the tank stores this water for later use. Should the weather be cloudy or in the winter months where we can go weeks without any decent sun, this system comes with a gas booster to help heat the water on these types of days.

Another advantage is the look of the split systems. As they have slimline containers they are not as bulky as normal storage tanks. This particular system can effortlessly provide hot water for up to 2-5 people in the house. This is great for growing families.

Having a solar system also reduces the number of carbon emissions you are putting into the air, combined with the 6 star energy rated gas booster, will save not only the environment but your wallet too. You can save up to 2.0 to 2.9 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions using the solar system.

Rheem storage systems have warranties on all there systems, however, they do vary for a unit to unit.

The Rheem Stellar Electric and new Rheem 491 and 492 systems come with a 10 year warranty on the storage tanks, while the Rheem Compact, Rheem Plus electric and Rheem 191/192 units have their tanks warranted for 7 years.

With the Rheem name, you know you are buying a hot water system that has had almost a century’s worth of testing and innovation.

Rheem units are very popular in Australian households making them one of the most commonly found units even today.
