Vulcan Freeloader 260 Litre 692260N0

Today Jim’s Plumbing was called out on an emergency job for a Vulcan Freeloader gas hot water system that had suddenly begun to leak heavily from the base of the system. The unit was 11 years old and thought it may need replacing, therefore the customer was obviously concerned about being able to find a plumber considering it was a Saturday. Thankfully Jim’s Plumbing was able to attend within 30 minutes* of making the initial booking call and our plumber was able to quickly identify the problem.

The plumber was not shocked that the unit was not reparable.  He noticed that the hot water system had completely rusted through the bottom causing the system to leak profusely.  So our plumber got straight to assessing the pipework and house, and writing up a quote for a complete supply and installation of a new hot water system.  The plumber discussed with the customer what system would be most suitable for their household considering the number of full time occupants.

The customer explained how satisfied they were with the Vulcan brand hot water system considering the lifetime of their current system and the reliability in terms of hot water quality.  Instead of installing a Vulcan Freeloader 260 Litre, the customer opted for a modernised version of their previous system and had decided for the installation of Vulcan Freeloader 170 Litre due to its ability to provide hot water for a house with up to 5 occupants, the reassurance of it is Australian made, its 4 star efficiency and 5 year warranty on the cylinder.  Fortunately for the customer, the plumber was able to source the hot water system on the same day* that the quote was accepted, meaning he got to work immediately on the installation.

Our customer was ecstatic with the fact that they called thinking that a plumber wouldn’t able to attend until Monday so they would have to put up with freezing showers all weekend, to having a fully qualified plumber attend within half an hour of making an initial booking call and having a brand new hot water tank installed on the same day.

Prior to booking in with Jim’s Plumbing, the customer looked on our jimsplumbing.net.au website to see what services we provide, which is where they stumbled across the option of an interest free payment plan.**. On site, the plumber was not only knowledgeable in an extensive range of plumbing but he was also able to help the customer fill out their application for the interest free payment plan making the entire Jim’s Plumbing experience easy and stress free.

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*.
