What do hot water system installation services include?

Hot water system installation services include all the activities necessary to put a reliable, safe hot water system in your home. This involves installing an unvented hot water system, inspecting the installation area, preparing materials, installing the cylinder or tank, then making the needed connections. After the installation, your plumber can test the system for flaws and address them as needed.

Inspecting installation area

Your water heater installation begins with a thorough inspection of the spot that will house the tank and its components. Your plumber makes sure that the floor is robust enough to support the cylinder's weight and complies with established building codes and safety rules and regulations. If the allotted space is deemed insufficient for the cylinder, your plumber can help you look for an alternative spot for the unvented cylinder service. 

Preparing for installation 

Your plumber makes the necessary preparations for the hot water cylinder installation. If necessary, some plumbers may offer to make an improvised platform of sturdy materials to support the tank's weight. Otherwise, you can hire a Tasker to handle all your carpentry needs.

When appropriate, your hired plumber shuts off the power, gas, and water supply before starting the job. They can take all the necessary measurements to determine the right amount of materials, then cuts and bends wires and pipes to the appropriate lengths and widths. Your plumber may also cut holes into walls or floors as needed to allow pipes or wires to run through.

Installing the cylinder

Once the cylinder's space is ready, your plumber can proceed with the unvented hot water cylinder installation. They can place the cylinder or tank onto its designated space and position. Your plumber takes care not to damage any of the components of the vented hot water cylinder or other pipes and wires in its surroundings.

Installing components and pipes

After the cylinder is in position, your specialist proceeds with attaching the appropriate pipes, wires and components like the Temperature and Pressure Release valve, expansion vessel, immersion heater, and any other pipes and valves. As with all other stages of the unvented cylinder installation, they use appropriate materials and techniques that are compliant with state safety and building regulations and industry best practices. 

Testing the system

Your hired plumber tests the system after completing the installation. They check that each tap and shower head provides hot water on demand and flows with consistent pressure. Should variations in temperature or pressure arise, your plumber can troubleshoot the system and do the appropriate fixes. 

They repeat this process until the hot water system works without any issues. And now that your home has hot water running through your taps, tubs, and showers, why not ensure greater warmth and comfort in every room of your home? On Airtasker, you can also hire an insulation installer who can help you cut down on bills and achieve year-round comfort.

Install a Thurmann C7 hot water unit


Glen Iris VIC, Australia

6th Jun 2023

I already have the unit. A 50mm copper gas pipe and water service already excavated and close to the install area (pic 2). NB: The yellow pipe is out of service, the gas meter was relocated to the front of the property and upgraded to the 50mm feed for the house a few years ago. Hot and water cold water lines are in roof space just above install area so the option of having cold feed from above is there. Tiles easily removed for access. It's a double brick wall with cavity that should enable partial concealed pipework. Bricks can be removed to facilitate this. - Due date: Flexible

Punctual, courteous and professional. Job completed in good time. Very happy thank you.

Test thermocouple and gas to diagnose failure of hot water pilot.


Carnegie VIC, Australia

10th May 2023

Thurmann hot water system pilot does not start. Must be able to diagnose this system. There is gas supply other gas appliance operate. The system is on the ground. Thermocouple needs testing, cleaning or replacement/or there is a blockage or other problem. Do not respond if you have no experience with this sort of thing. Have tried to get the pilot working for 2 days. A 2nd order analysis is required. - Due date: Before Monday, 15 May 2023

Knows his work and is competent. Fixed the problem.Low efficiency rating is due to the fact that the service is over priced. If payment was based upon a callout fee and $100/hr it would have been half as much. I do not think plumbers are due rates of payment closing onto $400/hr.

Plumber to fix Thermann Hot water unit


St Kilda East VIC, Australia

15th Apr 2023

Hot water has been running mostly lukewarm. The unit is a “Thermann 26 Gas Continuous Flow” system. Photos attached. Only one unit needs to be fixed. Most likely a valve needs to be replaced. Looking for a plumber who services Thermann units regularly and carries replacement valves or whatever common parts might be required. It's a particularly common brand and most likely a simple fix for someone familiar with Thermann units. I will not pay someone to come look at it, tell me that it needs a valve replaced, then go away, order one, come back and charge me for two visits! - Due date: Before Tuesday, 18 April 2023
