Water Heater Repairs and Installation
Water tank installation and repair covers what's necessary to install new water tanks to your home or repair old ones and restore them in good running condition. Regardless of size, design, and specifications, you can hire an expert to handle your water tank-related needs so you can have peace of mind knowing they're in expert hands. Not only will you be able to reduce your water bills and environmental impact, but you'll also be safeguarding you and your family's health. Here's what we can do for you:
If you just moved into a new home to start anew, our Taskers can help you install backup water tanks so you can be ready for any emergencies. Before installation, you must first check with your local council and water authority in case your tank needs approval.
Once confirmed, your Tasker starts by carefully choosing where to place your water tank. Its position must be unobtrusive, readily accessible, and close to a downpipe. They'll then take the inlet screen of your tank and connect it with your existing downpipe, fit a cleaning or filtering device, then check if all remaining parts fit correctly before installation.
Your tank's outlet holes are then drilled in, the tap or hose fitting screwed in place, and lastly, Teflon tape is wrapped around the fitting to reduce leakage. For proper water storage tank maintenance, your Tasker will also remind you to clean your filters and strainers regularly.
One of the most common water tank issues is leakage. To repair your water tank, your Tasker first drains the equipment below the level of the tear and clean the surface of any grime or dirt. Then, they drill a tiny hole on both ends of the tear and heat the area surrounding the hole with a heat gun or propane torch. The filler material is then placed over the tear and continuously heated until it covers the damage completely.
Once the tank is cooled down, your Tasker tests it out by refilling the equipment with water and re-checking for any leaks. In case you own a solar water heater tank, your Tasker can also handle the repair for you. Most solar water tank problems arise from pipe degradation due to harsh UV rays and rough weather conditions. Improper installation or no maintenance of valves, pumps, and sensors can also contribute to problems over time. If your solar water heater tank is malfunctioning, the quickest and most cost-effective solution is replacing it with new parts.
Your Tasker can also handle your water tank removal in case you have a dormant water tank that's worn down and no longer in use. Since water tanks are heavy and pose health and safety risks, professional help and specialised equipment are needed for the job. From safely removing the tank off of your property to cleaning up the area afterwards, you can leave the job to your Tasker and let them do the heavy lifting for you.

1) stop water supply by closing off supply copper pipes 2) drainage of broken hot water column into tray (this will require cutting a hole in the bottom of the cylinder as it is completely sealed and does not have a lid that can be popped of 3) removal of the column from the ceiling. the diameter of the tank is approx 1.4 metres. It may require cutting into pieces. The removal of the tank should be timed when the gyprocker removes the ceiling panel below for ease of removal Additional notes: This gravity fed hotwater tank is about 45 years old. It is in the roof. It has leaked through a ceiling panel. Being an older style, poorly designed tank, the drainage pipe is not at the bottom of the tank. It is higher up the column. Hence a hole must be cut at the bottom of the cylinder to drain remaining water 2) Removal of hot water column from the roof: This potentially may require heavy duty cutting tools such as a jigsaw to cut the tank into parts to be removed through either the rabbit hole of the ceiling or when the ceiling panel below is removed by the gyprocker You will have two able-bodied and highly competant people (myself and my dad as extra labour) to help out. We would prefer that the person who arrives is insured and experienced with this specific task. We have Building and contents insurance as well.

We have an old hot water tank in a cupboard. The tank is 430mm wide but the doorway is only 400mm wide. We need someone with the tools to cut it in half. It needs to be done before Wednesday 4 May for a council pick up. I will also need help to carry the pieces up extensive outdoor stairs and a steep driveway to the curb for council collection.
