Hot Water System in Hawthorn

Hot Water System in Hawthorn.

The team at PlumbFast were recently called out to a hot water system issue in Hawthorn. Having trouble with your hot water system in the middle of winter is not an ideal situation, so our team ensured they attended site in a timely manner.

Arriving onsite, our Melbourne plumber spent time chatting with the client to understand the issues they were experiencing. The client was only receiving luke warm water in their bathroom. Inspecting the hot water system, our Melbourne plumber opened the roof hatch in the bathroom and found the hot water pipe leading to the tempering valve was hot. Finding this identified to our plumber that there was an issue with the tempering valve. Inspecting further he found that the tempering valve needed replacing.

Our best plumber sourced a new tempering valve from his van, and turned off the water supply. He then proceeded to remove the existing tempering valve and tailpipes. Once replacing the tempering valve and tailpipes, our plumber opened the water supply again and tested the hot water system. Hot water was now flowing into the bathroom and the issue was deemed resolved.
