We had a faulty hot water unit on our roof, which was in a tough spot to access. Byron did the most amazing job accessing the unit, disconnecting it, and installing a new gas unit in better spot - which has worked seamlessly ever since. He’s also a lovely guy and his quote was competitive. We’ll be using him again next time we need a plumber - thanks again Byron!

I contacted Zebra Plumbing to change my washing machine taps. Byron came to inspect the laundry space. He suggested an alternative which I liked. Byron completed the task straight away and went the extra mile to make the laundry space more aesthetically pleasing. Byron is very professional, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Zebra Plumbing

Could not be more happy with the service from Zebra! My hot water unit was burst and I have a young daughter at home so me and my partner were stressed. Byron arrived on time and replaced the unit fast and at a low cost. Will be using Zebra from now on for all my plumbing problems.

Hot Water FAQs

What are the signs that my hot water system needs repair or replacement?

Common signs include inconsistent water temperature, unusual noises, rusty water, or visible leaks. If you’re experiencing any of these issues, it’s advisable to seek professional assessment.

Regular maintenance is crucial for your hot water system’s longevity and efficiency. It’s recommended to schedule a minor service every six months or a major service every three to five years to ensure proper maintenance. 

Storage systems heat and store water in a tank, providing a continuous supply but a limited storage capacity. Tankless systems heat water on demand, offering unlimited hot water, which may result in lower flow rates.

Gas systems tend to be more energy-efficient, but the choice depends on your specific needs and energy costs in your area. We can help you determine the most cost-effective option.

The lifespan of a hot water system varies depending on its maintenance, usage, and water quality. On average, a well-maintained system can last 10-20 years, but it’s essential to monitor its performance and plan for a replacement when necessary.
