Reliable Bosch 16P Continuous Flow Gas Water Heater
On a cold Monday morning last week, one of our loyal customers called us to advise he required assistance with his Bosch 16P continuous flow gas hot water system. The system had started to corrode and had been leaking a small amount of water for weeks, however, the customer had now started to smell gas around the unit. As the customer had small children in the home, he did not want to take the risk of waiting any longer to repair the system and required assistance straight away! Luckily one of our plumbers was in the area and could be onsite within an hour of the customer’s call for help.
The last few days the customer has said the hot water only lasted a few minutes into a shower then will come out cold. Even filling the kitchen sink does not get finished before the heat has stopped from the taps. We had one of our experienced gas and plumbing experts in the area and sent him straight over.
The customer was at home today and greeted the plumber at the door. He was shown where the system was located and began his inspection. The unit looked almost brand new, too young for any major issues to be starting already. The plumber did, however, find that the hot water unit had a very low pressure reading.
With instantaneous units, they require a certain amount of pressure for the heating element to be switched on. A faulty valve was allowing the pressure to escape before being put through the system, thus the hot water unit not performing to its potential. The customer was thrilled as he thought he may need a new unit.
The customer agreed to get the valve replaced and with the pressure tested and back to normal, the unit would run like new again. The customer made the most of having the plumber onsite and even got a couple of his inside tap washers replaced as they had begun to leak.
Later that day the customer was called by our customer service manager to see how their experience was with Jim’s Plumbing. The customer was extremely satisfied, receiving a call back 5 minutes after sending his web booking to the plumber swiftly resolving the issue, the customer will definitely be using Jim’s Plumbing for all of their future plumbing emergencies.

Bosch 16P Continuous Flow Gas Hot Water Experts
Recently our Jim’s Plumber was called out to look at a Bosch 16p instantaneous hot water unit that was leaking unexpectedly. The customer was also experiencing no hot water throughout their household. It was a cold rainy day – the last thing this customer needed was a cold shower on such a miserable day!
The plumber arrived within the hour of the customer calling us out. Our call centre and dispatch team always work hard to go above and beyond – we want your plumbing emergency to be resolved in the shortest amount of time possible. We know that plumbing emergencies are never planned for, so we do everything we can to ensure you can continue on with your day as planned. As fate would have it, the unit had lasted beyond its shelf life and unfortunately needed replacement.
In the end, the customer had hot water working within 2.5 hours of calling out an emergency plumber! The plumber had provided the customer with an obligation free quote for replacement. Upon the customer’s acceptance, the plumber installed the new unit straight away. This particular Bosch 16p hot water service is no longer manufactured and so the plumber replaced it with the equivalent Rheem hot water unit. We know that this new hot water boiler produces 26 litres of hot water per minute and rates well in its efficient energy star rating.
Instantaneous hot water systems such as the Bosch 16p continuous flow allow you you to save on your energy bills. Continuous flow or instantaneous units mean you are only paying for water as it is being used. Unlike a storage tank, hot water is not being stored and kept constantly heated in a tank that may or may not be used in the near future. For example, a storage tank will continue to use gas or electricity to keep the water in a tank hot, even if you are not home using any hot water.
