FAQS

Here are the most common questions we get asked about hot water.

Q. WHERE CAN I BUY A THERMANN UNIT FROM?

Thermann hot water units are all available from Reece Plumbing stores.

Q. DO I NEED TO SERVICE MY HOT WATER UNIT?

We recommend a six monthly service to be completed by the home owner:
Simply operate the Pressure & Temperature Relief Valve for approximately 10 seconds by lifting the lever on the valve to ensure water is relieved to waste through the relief drain pipe. Check to ensure the valve closes correctly.
Also do a visual check for any leaks around your storage tank and pipework, ensure the pump station is dry and free from moisture, and ensure all tubes are still dark in colour (only if safely visible from the ground).
We also recommend a service every 3 years by a licensed plumber to ensure optimum operation of the unit.

Q. WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE NO HOT WATER?

Is the Pressure & Temperature Relief Valve discharging too much water?
Is one outlet (such as the shower) using more hot water than you think?
Is there a leaking hot water pipe or dripping hot water tap?

Q. HOW MUCH DOES INSTALLATION COST?

Installation costs vary depending on your current home situation, and if any plumbing elements requiring upgrading or changing. It is best to consult with a licensed plumber to get a detailed quote for installation.

Q. GOING ON HOLIDAYS - HOW CAN I LOOK AFTER MY HOT WATER UNIT?

If the hot water system is not used for two weeks or more, a quantity of hydrogen gas, which is highly flammable, may accumulate in the water heater. To dissipate this gas safely, it is recommended that a hot tap be turned on for several minutes at a sink, basin or bath but not a dishwasher, clothes washer, or other appliance. During this procedure there must be no smoking, open flame or any other electrical appliance operating nearby. If hydrogen is discharged through the tap, it will probably make an unusual noise similar to air escaping.
