Such a common problem our clients have are not knowing the signs to look out for in the event of a blocked drain.
Some times knowing the signs can give you the opportunity to call out a licensed plumber or blocked drain specialist to assist you before the problem escalates.
One of the signs could be a gurgling sound coming from your drains when they are in use. Another sign could be that you noticed there is no water in your toilet bowl.
In outdoors situation a common sign of a broken pipe would be either a bad smell or a damp area where grass has grown more than the rest of the yard.
Keeping an eye on these little signs, could prevent a serious plumbing issue from arising.
If you experience any of the signs, pick up the phone immediately and call ADKO plumbing, we are drainage specialists, that offer up front pricing, 24 hours a day 7 days a week & same day service guaranteed.
Today ADKO went out to a job in the north shore where one of our regular clients requested a hot water system conversion from gas storage to a gas instantaneous heater.
Commonly enough when people are anticipating the cost of something like this they don’t factor in all the contributing costs. Like allowing for a power point to be installed outside to run the new instantaneous heater off. Or the reconfiguration of pipework necessary to make the change work.
A traditional gas heating system, must heat the water in the entire tank (some times over 500L) which requires more gas, which equals higher gas bills $$$$. Over a year, for an average household a 5 star Gas Storage hot water heater is likely to use 5%-10% more gas than a Gas Continuous Flow/Instantaneous hot water system.
Another important factor to consider is the space/location. A Gas storage water system requires alot more space than an instantaneous hot water system. An instantaneous hot water system can be mounted on a wall and almost requires no space.
The installation cost between the two is almost negligible. The difference being, you may require an electrician to install a power point for the instantaneous system.
As far as reliability goes, both systems are proven to be as reliable as each other and both have inbuilt safety measures to ensure your safety in case of failure.
At ADKO we boast a skilled team of hot water system plumbing technicians. We have all the information you need & offer up front pricing with no hidden costs. We operate 24 hours a day & 7 days a week, so please don’t hesitate to call us at any time if you’re thinking of making the switch from a storage tank to an instantaneous heater.
