Rheem Stellar 160L 8050360NO
This morning we received a phone call from a customer who had seen our vans driving around the city. She called to say that there was water around her hot water system, she was unsure if this was unrelated to the bad storms that had brought heavy rain recently or whether it was from her the hot water system.
Luckily we had a plumber that was just about to start in the customer’s area, so he was able to be there within the hour. As the customer had to go to work that afternoon, she needed the hot water system up and running when she got home. The unit in question was a Rheem Stellar 160L gas storage unit.
The Rheem Stellar gas hot water heater that we attended today was manufactured in 2002 and was needing replacement as the water was coming out the top of the tank. We had one of these units in our warehouse so we were able to easily change this over as the customer was happy with their existing unit we replaced it exactly the same with a Rheem stellar 160 litre. These heaters are great for larger families and one of the more favourable advantages is that they deliver hot water pressure at mains pressure. This delivers a great high-pressure shower each and every time.
The Rheem Stellar 330 and Rheem Steller 360 such as this customer’s unit, are commonly installed throughout Australia and we are working with them on a daily basis. Our plumbers and gas fitters are fully trained in repairing and replacing these units and each of our vans carries any required parts should a repair be necessary. As in this unit when the tank is in need of replacing we have quick access to another so our client can be back in hot water straight away.

This way Rheem ensure that are able to provide you with energy efficiency over a wide range of applications through domestic for large and small families, industrial and large scale projects.
Rheem Stellar 360 Gas Storage Repair
An emergency call out was made to Jim’s Plumbing in the early hours of a Monday morning. The customer had no hot water from this Rheem Stellar 360 gas storage unit. The issue was a pilot light that was continually going out, a common fault for this model. Frantic, the customer was quickly able to get hold of Jim’s Plumbing national call centre to arrange a plumber for a repair.
Within the hour, a fully qualified Jim’s plumber attended site and moments later had found that the piezo igniter on the unit had been clogged due to strong winds and weather conditions, stopping the flow of gas to the pilot light. Due to the nature of the problem, the plumber was able to quickly identify this as the positioning of the unit suggested it had been in the firing line for most of the area’s bad weather.
The replacement part for this unit was easily sourced as the Rheem stellar 360 is a very popular and common choice for customers across Australia. The part was sourced from a nearby supplier, installed swiftly and with ease resulting in the customer being able to take a hot shower before leaving for work. This entire process from booking to repair, took a total of 90 minutes, thanks to the quick and easy booking process from the call centre, and the incredible experience from the fully qualified Jim’s plumber.
The customer had a printed out detailed report of the job scope, identified problem and what repairs were carried out on site, thanks to an advanced in-van computer system specifically designed for Jim’s Plumbing. For peace of mind, the customer has available, a 1 year warranty on the workmanship and any parts carried out and installed by the tradesman on site. The customer also was able to pay the invoice via mobile EFTPOS, as the vans are equipped with this facility also.
With a 5 star energy rating and an impressive 200L per hour in water recovery, it’s no mystery that the Rheem stellar series is one of the top sellers in the market. This particular unit boasts a 10 year warranty on the cylinder, a 5 year warranty on labour and 1 year warranty on all parts and labour. The stellar 360 is a mains pressure hot water service meaning the occupants are able to run multiple showers at a time and is also suitable for connection to natural gas supplies.
