Vulcan 135L Storage Hot Water System

Vulcan 135L Storage Hot Water System

Today was another busy day at Jim’s Plumbing. One of the major jobs completed by our plumbing team was the replacement of a Vulcan 135L storage hot water unit for one of our loyal customers. We received a frantic call at around 10am and luckily, one of our plumbers was just finishing up on another job in the area. As such, we could have him onsite to assist our customer within the hour! When our plumber arrived, the customer was in tears and explained to him that she had been without hot water for several days now and that her old, reliable Vulcan 135L storage hot water unit had started to leak from the base. Our plumber sprang into action and assessed the situation. Within minutes it was determined that the whole system required replacement.

Our plumber raced to his van and wrote up a complete quotation for our customer who was still crying. She had loved this system from the time that it was installed in 2009 and it had been very reliable for her over the years, so the idea of having to replace it was not one that she had considered previously. Luckily, our plumber was able to explain that not only could he replace the system like for like with a new Vulcan that very same day, she could also take advantage of our interest free terms (available to approved applicants only).

Whilst our plumber worked at installing the new unit, racing to ensure that it would be ready by the time our customer’s children returned home from school, he was heartened to hear our customer describe why she had chosen the Vulcan 135L storage hot water heater. Some of her favourite aspects included the fact that the system has a 4 star energy rating making it efficient to run, and the sleek appearance of the system’s steel jacket and enamelled steel cylinder enhanced the house’s aesthetics.

The old system had served her family well over the years due to the fact that this style of systems stores water at 73 degrees Celsius. This is hotter than many storage systems and increases its efficacy thus, less hot water is required per hot shower of the exact same duration.

If you are interested in upgrading from your current three star energy efficiency hot water heater to the Vulcan 135L storage system or you are experiencing difficulties with your current system, then contact Jim’s Plumbing today on 1300 133 509!
