Hot Water Cylinder

Service & Replacement

Hot Water Cylinder Replacement

A hot water cylinder is a crucial piece of equipment in most homes. In most cases, without a cylinder there is no hot water. And cold showers just don’t cut it during a Wellington winter. All things going well, a modern hot water cylinder lasts several decades—as many as 40 years—but older ones have a shorter lifespan. This can also be cut shorter by faults, leaks, and other problems. If your hot water cylinder is leaking from the cylinder itself, rusty, or experiencing pressure issues or major electronic faults, it may be time to replace the entire unit. Often, homeowners with low pressure cylinders replace them with mains pressure cylinders for better water flow throughout the house.

If you are looking to replace your hot water cylinder, get in touch with Garcia Plumbing. Our experienced team can provide expert advice on which cylinder best suits your home and replace it quickly and efficiently.

Hot water Cylinder Service

The key to keeping your hot water cylinder working well for decades to come is a robust schedule of regular servicing. This is the case for many other appliances and pieces of equipment, but particularly important here—a problem with your water heating system could land you in hot water! Our servicing includes a comprehensive checklist that ensures the cylinder is operating safely and efficiently, and involves tasks such as cleaning important components and flushing the tank. 

The best defense is a good offense, so if you want to keep your hot water systems working safely and avoid an emergency plumbing callout, schedule a service. Garcia Plumbing’s experienced team are experts in hot water systems around Wellington. We can help you to maintain and prolong the life of your cylinder.

Client Reviews

We highly recommend Kieran. He worked with us on a number of jobs for our home. He provided us great advice, and delivered high quality work. Kieran is professional, and friendly.

Would highly recommend Kieran for all your plumbing needs. I have used his services twice. We did a laundry refit and he suggested changes to tidy the existing plumbing work for the washing machine and laundry sink. Also, Kieran installed some drainage outside my house to redirect surface water off my front pathway. Both jobs resulted in tidy and elegant plumbing solutions and we are very satisfied with the end results. Overall, he is great to deal with, very professional and efficient in his work. Would definitely use him again!

I have used Kieran’s plumbing services on many occasions. He removed and relocated a new hot water cylinder, did the plumbing for my kitchen renovation including fitting a sink and installed a vanity and new shower head and mixer in my bathroom. He is very professional, friendly and efficient I was really impressed with the work and how he went above and beyond to make sure things went smoothly and I got what I want.

We have used Kieran’s services (both gas and plumbing) a number of times over the years to help find and address leaks on our property, for refitting of kitchen and bathroom when renovating and for installation of infinity systems for both our house and unit. He is friendly, trustworthy, efficient and considerate and we have always found him to do a great job, with great communication before and after the job is done. Thanks for all your hard work, Kieran!
