I had Jordy come and instal our new dishwasher today. Even on this hot and muggy day, Jordy came in with a smile on his face and bubbly demeanor. He was meticulous about the instal, triple checking everything, whilst also being time efficient and informative. Also nice to have someone in the house that you don't feel uncomfortable dancing around! He ended the service with a vacume of the kitchen with the most mess on the floor being my own. Welcome back any time ha ha. Plumbing work was to a higher level than previous work done with a different company, with tubing running on the roof of the cupboards, so I can utilise all of the space 😀. Thanks Jordy!

We booked to have a plasterer from Fawcett Group come to repair some damage to ceiling and walls for a friend we were doing a surprise reno for. Ben came and went through the house with me and then came back twice more to complete the job. Each time he contacted me to let me know approximate time and again when he was on his way, which I really appreciated. The work was done perfectly and the reno looks fabulous. All done within two days. Would highly recommend!

Elliot installed a much needed stormwater sump at my house and did a fantastic job! He was reliable, kind, knowledgeable, and professional; it made me feel valued as a customer. Kylie, in the office, was also very polite and respectful on the phone. Would recommend Fawcett Group to anyone! They are now my go-to for plumbing issues.

Hot Water Replacement Adelaide

While we specialise in hot water repairs, we can also provide obligation free advice and guidance on replacement hot water systems should it not be economically viable to repair. The cost of a replacement hot water system installation depends on the amount of heated water required and based on the number of people in your household.

24Hour Emergency Hot Water Repairs Adelaide

A leak coming from your hot water unit is often a sign that your hot water system is corroding. Cylinder corrosion is one of the many effects of the hard water we have here in Adelaide. All hot water units will have a manufacturers plate that will include a manufacturing date, the average life span is about 10 to 12 years.

Choosing A Hot Water System Adelaide

If you’re in the market for a new hot water unit, it’s worth knowing which one is best for you and your needs. There are many things to consider before going out and buying a hot water unit. The checklist below will help you decide on the correct unit. As with most things, there is a system to suit whatever budget you may have.

choosing the right hot water systems
  • How much water is required? Usually defined by the number of people that you have in your home. With 4 people, you may need a tank as big as 250L but if you’re unsure, contact us and we should be able to give you a guide.
  • Storage tank or continuous flow? Both have their pros and cons. A tank system will provide hot water faster whereas a continuous flow will be more energy efficient and save space.
  • Gas or Electric? What you have available at your property will usually determine which you go for but again, they both have pros and cons, it is worth doing your own research to determine what’s right for you.
  • How much space do you have for your hot water unit? Storage tanks can take up quite a bit of room while continuous flow systems are quite compact and mount to your wall.

Gas Hot Water System Adelaide
Gas storage hot water units have a gas burner underneath the tank itself to heat the water inside. Most units have an adjustable thermostat to set the water temperature. When the temperature at the bottom of the tank drops below the level set on the thermostat, the pilot flame ignites the main burner so the water is kept constantly hot. Storage hot water systems come in a range of tank sizes from 90L to 300L.

Gas Instantaneous/Continuous Flow Units
Unlike the storage units, these units only heat water as it is required, which means it may take a little longer to get the hot water that you’re after, but it is much more energy efficient. The water is heated by a gas burner as it flows through the heat exchanger. The gas burner starts when a hot water tap is turned on. It only heats the amount of water that is required instead of continuously heating a full tank.

Electric Hot Water System Adelaide
Electric storage hot water units are available in sizes starting at 25L and going all the way up to 400L for domestic properties. There are larger units available for commercial properties with multiple element configurations. While storage units have the hot water ready for you almost instantly, it consumes more energy.

Electric Instantaneous/Continuous Flow Units
These units are available in flow rates as little as 5L/minute up to 27L/minute. Unlike the storage units, because these heat water on the go as required, you’ll never run out of hot water. Some models allow you to choose the temperature of the heated water, whereas others only heat at a specific degree. As the water is heated on its way to the tap, it means the water pressure will be slightly less than that of a storage tank.
