Hot Water System in Richmond

Hot Water System in Richmond

The team at PlumbFast were called out to a hot water system in Richmond. Our Melbourne plumbers attended site in a timely manner ready to rectify the clients issue.

After arriving on site in Richmond, our hot water plumber found that the pilot light needed relighting. After relighting the pilot light, the plumber tested the unit and found it stayed lit, all running as normal. Once further inspecting the unit, it was found to have two leaking pressure and temperature released (PTR) valves. These leaky valves were likely to be causing the hot water system issues, which prompted our plumber to replace both PTR valves.Residential Plumbing, Richmond, Hot Water System pilot light out
