Hot water cylinder servicing in older homes

You may find that you have a low-pressure cylinder. These are great for savings, but you may find that your warm water is much slower than your cold water when having a shower, or it suddenly goes cold when someone uses another tap. Upgrading to a mains pressure hot water cylinder will improve your shower experience and save you money on heating as they are already highly insulated. Talk with our plumbers in Auckland before proceeding as they can check that your existing shower head and taps are compatible. You may even want to consider installing a new pressure valve which is a cost-effective way to improve a low pressure cylinder.

How to check for low pressure cylinders

The easiest check is if you can see a vent pipe coming out of your roof. The second check is to compare the pressure from your hot and cold taps. If you can notice a difference in pressure, it indicates you may have a low-pressure cylinder.

Worried about winter?

We know this is very inconvenient, especially in the colder months. Typically, this is a sign that your heater element or thermostat needs replacing, and we can easily get this repaired. We will also do a quality check to ensure you have the correct sized element and thermostat for your cylinders.
