Servicing All Brands of Solar Water Heaters

 

Solar hot water service is like no other – gas or electric, storage or tankless. As such, it requires highly specialised training and a unique skill set to provide the kind of maintenance, repair and replacement services you and your family can rely on.

For the past 3 decades, Kalamunda Plumbing has been the leading advocate in the sale and servicing of solar water heaters throughout the Hills and Eastern suburbs, resulting in an expertise and knowledge base second to none.  You needn’t take our word for that. Just ask friends and neighbours who have solar hot water and it won’t take long before you encounter one or more who once relied on us and continue to do so.

As a result, we have developed an unmatched ability to service and repair an extensive variety of brands, including:

There are many more brands we service and repair, that you may not be so familiar with.

  • Edwards
  • Envirosun
  • iHeat
  • Rheem
  • Rinnai

When the time comes for replacement of your solar hot water system, we can offer systems with either stainless steel or vitreous lined steel tanks and we’ll guarantee your system is installed correctly to help ensure problem-free performance. What’s more, we offer a free annual check-up of your system. We think that’s especially important for roof-mounted systems, since “out of sight” can easily become “out of mind”.

During our FREE Check-up, we make sure your Booster, Safety Valves and Solar Absorber Panels are in good working order and that the Hot Water Cylinder is free of leaks. We also carry out a basic clean of the absorber panel glass to help your system get the most benefit from the sun.  In the past we have even assisted owners by discovering issues just before their warranty ran out.

And we can also provide that all-important 5 year service, so necessary for solar water heaters and regardless of who you purchased it from.

The Importance of 5-Year Solar Water Heater Service

Solar water heater manufacturers recommend major service every 5 years. We echo that advice to help your system perform at its best and last longer.

  • Replace temperature/pressure relief (TPR) valve (fitted to the HW tank).
  • Replace sacrificial anode (if it has one – not included in a stainless-steel tank).
  • Check the operation of the electric booster.
  • Wipe down the glass on the solar absorber panels.

Solar Water Heater Repair

Here’s a statement of the obvious: even with precision installation and ongoing maintenance, your solar water heater won’t last forever. No water heater can.

Which means that if you keep it long enough, sooner or later a repair issue will arise. Common solar service problems include:

  • Leaks – stress or corrosion of the hot water cylinder or absorber panels can result in leakage, and so can deteriorated pressure valves and pipes, or loose pipe fittings.
  • No hot water – a sudden lack of hot water can be the result of problems with the system’s hot water mixing valve, electric or gas booster, circulating pump, leaking hot water pipes, and more.
  • Broken solar panels – glass on solar absorber panels can and do break from the likes of falling gum nuts, thrown rocks and errant cricket balls. Broken panels negatively impact their ability to collect the sun’s energy.

Testimonials What our
Customers Say

I have given Kalamunda plumbing 5 stars but only because I couldn’t give them 6!Kalamunda Plumbing we’re absolutely fantastic! I had a burst pipe somewhere on my property (3000 sqm) leaking at 1L per second. I tried 4 different plumbing companies before coming across Kalamunda plumbing. The first company made me wait two days and then forgot my booking, the next one couldn’t help me for over a week and the last quoted me $1200 for the job and still had to wait three days. I called Kalamunda plumbing and they arrived the very next day. Anthony found the burst pipe within 20 minutes to the exact location, dug down and repaired the leak. The whole job only took 2 hours and was 1/3 of the price I was quoted.They were professional, helpful and friendly. I will now be a customer for life. I have shared my experience with all that I know in my area.I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you for everything! When the need arises I will be back!

We had a large amount of water bubbling up between the pavers down the side of our house. After a quick call around and a few dead ends I got hold of Kalamunda plumbing. They were able to have someone around quickly, dig down and repair the broken water line. Saving me a fortune in wasted water. Highly recommend and definitely will be using for any future plumbing work.

Trent and Barry from Kalamunda Plumbing did an excellent job. As well as fixing the problem in a timely manner, they gave me some good advice on a number of other potential plumbing issues
Roger Barnett
One thing that I really appreciate is a tradesman that arrives when they say they will, especially when you have taken time off work to have your hot water system replaced.Kalamunda Plumbing were on time and I can't believe how quickly the work was done, and at a reasonable price considering that they did an urgent repair for me. Everything was back to normal again so quickly, mess cleaned up and they adjusted the water temperature so that it was not hot enough to scold me.Well done to everyone involved at Kalamunda Plumbing, greatly appreciated.Regards Russell
