An emergency hot water heater repair at a block of strata units in Manly

emergency hot water heater repair manly


We were recently called to a large apartment building in Manly on the Northern Beaches Sydney to undertake an emergency hot water repair of a Rheem gas hot water system that was spurting water through an underground carpark.

We arrived onsite within the hour to find the valve, which is specifically fitted to hot water heaters where the mains water pressure is known to be high (such as on Sydney’s Northern Beaches), had split and water was pouring out.

Knowledge of a regions water pressure and undertaking the appropriate management solutions is extremely important when installing a new hot water system, or servicing an existing tank. Some areas of Sydney, typically those at or below sea level, experience high water pressure.  In these locations the correct water pressure valves need to be installed to guard against pipes bursting and causing significant damage to building and property.

We are licensed hot water plumbers with over 20 years experience working throughout the Sydney metropolitan area and Central Coast. We know what suburbs suffer from high water pressure so,  when undertaking a new hot water heater installation or servicing an existing system, we know what type of high water pressure valve is a necessity.

Thankfully, because the hot water tank at Manly was located in a basement carpark, there wasn’t any significant damage except mopping up of the excess water.
