Different manufacturers have different requirements. It’s important to service your hot water unit to keep it performing at its optimum. It's also good to keep the servicing up to date to protect your warranty.
The most important thing to know is that regular servicing will help reduce the risk of problems and extra costs.
These are benchmark service recommendations:
- Continuous Flow - annually
- Electric and Gas Storage - Every six months, you should lift the lever on the Pressure & Temperature Relief valve for approximately 10 seconds (Or as recommended by your Owners Instruction information sheet). Then a service every five years.
- Solar - every five years
- Heat Pump – annually
Tip: If you’re in a new place and unsure whether your unit has been maintained recently, call a licensed plumber and get the unit checked. This way you can create a service schedule. Your local Reece store can help you find a plumber.
