Hot water cylinder service in West Auckland and the North Shore
Who is this article for? Ultimately this article is for anyone who owns a home in Henderson, Albany, North Shore, West Auckland, Wairau Park and Westgate that relies on a hot water cylinder. This post is about the process of maintaining your hot water cylinder because with proper maintenance, you may not need to call out a plumber for an emergency repair. What happens with most people is that they do not contact a plumber until something is seriously wrong. This is similar to people who never go to the doctor until they are really sick. Just like how preventive medicine is to keep you from getting seriously ill, a properly maintained system and a regular hot water cylinder service could save you from having to do a very expensive repair.
While not suggesting that anyone who owns a home should contact a plumber to handle routine maintenance on your hot water cylinder there are some small tasks that you can carry out as a guide to the health of the cylinder. These types of maintenance jobs are very inexpensive and this helps you prevent those big bills down the road. This could be a simple inspection every few months or when you expect to use your hot water a lot more than normal.
However, it is definitely a good idea to call in a plumber for a hot water cylinder service at least once a year. Your plumber will be able to spot issues that you would have never known about such as hair-line surface cracks or the thermostat running slightly hotter. This is more insurance than anything. Also maintenance should be done on the system every few months as a standard rule of care. But not doing this maintenance you are risking major repairs and a lot of money.
The next thing is to find the right plumber in the Albany, North Shore, West Auckland, Wairau Park and Westgate areas. But how do you find the right plumber?
