Very quick to get the job done, called in the afternoon, job done by early the following morning. Replacing a toilet ,thankyou very much for a speedy response.
Dan arranged Josh to attend to our emergency within a couple of hours. Josh let us know he was on his way. He explained the problem and what he was going to do to resolve it. The new regulator looks great and has provided much better gas flow to the stovetop burners. Given the response time, professionalism and quality of the job I feel the cost was reasonable.

Have engaged these folks on multiple occasions and they'll continue to get our business we've been happy every time. Josh is always on time, explains things well, and very professional. The same high level of professionalism was noted by us from his colleague on a recent bigger job that needed 2 pairs of hands; nothing but positive experiences to report from everyone we've interacted with at Parker Plumbing including the administrative team. Thankyou!

The team at Parker Plumbing are experienced in all types of electric and gas hot water systems. We offer hot water installation, repairs and servicing throughout Brisbane and Ipswich, and we can look after any type of heater, including:

  • Electric water heaters – The most common type of hot water system, electric water heaters use electricity to heat water inside a large tank. These systems are affordable to install, but they have higher running costs than other types of systems.
  • Gas water heaters – Tank-type gas water heaters use natural gas or LPG to heat water that’s stored in a tank. Gas systems may be less efficient than electric water heaters, and they’re becoming less common in Brisbane and Ipswich.
  • Heat pump water heaters – A newer technology, heat pump water heaters work based on the same principles as air conditioners. This makes them incredibly energy-efficient when compared to traditional electric water heaters.
  • Instantaneous hot water systems – These are a type of gas water heater that heats the water as it passes through a copper pipe. The advantage of instantaneous heaters is that you will never run out of hot water. While the installation cost is usually higher, the low price of gas means that instantaneous water heaters have low running costs.

The right system for your home depends on the size of your family, how much hot water you need, and the layout of the property.

Hot Water System FAQs

Electric hot water systems have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, while gas hot water systems typically last about 10 years. Heat pump water heaters are also designed to last for over a decade.

Regular annual maintenance by a licensed plumber can extend the durability and efficiency of your hot water systems.

Choosing the right hot water system is essential for meeting your daily needs, especially in Brisbane where demand can peak sharply. Households with four members should evaluate tank sizes based on their system type:

  • Electric systems should have at least a 150L tank.
  • Gas systems are best with a minimum of 170L.
  • Solar systems require larger capacities, around 300L.

For those seeking efficiency and space-saving, tankless hot water systems are an ideal alternative, providing continuous hot water on demand.

To ensure you select the best option for your home or business, our skilled team is available to provide personalized consultations for properties in Brisbane and Ipswich.

To maintain optimal efficiency and extend the life of your hot water system, it is recommended to drain the water heater every six months.

This process, crucial for preventing mineral buildup, involves a skilled plumber conducting an in-depth visual inspection, draining the system, checking the anode rod, and testing the thermostat settings.

These vital maintenance steps enhance the system’s performance and longevity.

Water heaters, both gas and electric, typically last 10-15 years. As they near the end of their lifecycle, internal issues may cause fluctuating water temperatures, necessitating repairs or replacements.

For gas models, check the pilot light and thermostat. A simple adjustment or relighting might resolve issues.

For electric models, verify thermostat settings. Additionally, ensure a mechanical tempering valve is installed and functioning on the hot water outlet, as this is crucial for maintaining safe temperatures.

If the water heater is too small for your needs, consider upgrading to a larger model to meet your household’s demand. Lastly, if experiencing uneven water temperatures across multiple outlets, the pressure reduction valve might need servicing or replacement to ensure consistent water flow and prevent potential hazards.
