Jim’s Plumbing Knows Vulcan Inside Out

At Jim’s Plumbing, we have Vulcan hot water experts available 24/7. When your hot water runs cold, we can have a Vulcan specialist at your door just 1 hour* after your call.

Vulcan Electric Hot Water System

Vulcan electric hot water systems are a well known reliable brand. Vulcan electric storage hot water systems have been around for many years because they are quality products that are affordable. The water heaters use the standard 240 volt electricity supply. The cylinders that store the hot water have warranties from 7 to 10 years because they are made from enduring steel. Plumbers like them because they are easy to install and, should you run into any problems, the parts are readily available.

Vulcan electric hot water systems come in 7 sizes to suit pretty much any household. These are the sizes available:

  • 50 litres
  • 80 litres
  • 125 litres
  • 160 litres
  • 250 litres
  • 315 litres
  • 400litres

A four to five bedroom home with up to 9 people would require the substantial 400 litre model, whereas a single person apartment only calls for the 50 litre version. Vulcan is a trusted brand that has been heating water for Australian homes for a very long time. They remain popular because they are durable uncomplicated units that do exactly what they promise to do – keep you in hot water.

Vulcan Gas Hot Water System

Vulcan gas hot water systems are straightforward storage systems. The range is just as straightforward with two gas water heaters on offer. A three bedroom home with two to four people would be best served by the smaller water heater in the range, the one with a 135 litre capacity. A larger home with around four residents would need the larger capacity 170 litre version.

Gas storage hot water systems are similar to electric storage systems in that they heat up a supply of water that is kept hot and ready to go at all times. If you have gas they are a more economical choice because, generally speaking, gas is a cheaper energy source than mains electricity. The technology is well established and there isn’t much that can go wrong with a system Vulcan have been making and improving for years. They are easy to install, which is an advantage to you because they don’t cost as much to put in. And you can always get parts, which is a great help should anything go wrong. Vulcan gas hot water systems are made from high quality materials and are known for their reliability and durability.  Vulcan has good gas hot water solutions.

Vulcan Solar Hot Water System

The Vulcan solar hot water system is the Solar VSi Storage Tank Gas Boosted. It is what they call an indirect solar system which has a solar panel located on the roof and a storage tank on the ground. The water in the tank is heated by way of a closed circuit fluid that circulates from the solar panel to the storage tank. Because the amount of sunshine on especially gloomy days is not enough to keep the water really hot, this Vulcan solar hot water system has a back up gas booster. It’s a gas continuous system that only kicks in when the water temperature drops below a certain level and only heats the water that is being used at the time. That makes it an extremely efficient system that saves both energy and money.

The tank itself is lined with vitreous enamel to prevent any rust. The real advantage of an on the ground tank unit is that hot water is delivered to multiple taps at mains pressure so you don’t have to shower under a trickle and the hot water doesn’t suddenly diminish when another hot tap in the house is used.  The Vulcan solar hot water system is a good choice.

System Benefits

Curious about some of Vulcan’s hot water systems benefits? Just some of them include:

  • Only the highest quality materials are used
  • Tough and durable units
  • Products have flexible installation options
  • A ceramic lining is bonded to the inside of every hot water heater

Vulcan Troubleshooting

When your Vulcan hot water system has stopped working, you might want to try troubleshooting to identify the problem.

There are weekly or fortnightly options to choose from. Approval is generally granted within minutes and our plumber can set you up at your door!

Jayden was sent to fix my washing machine taps. He was polite and friendly, and explained what needed to be done. It was a bit more expensive than I expected, but from my call for service to the job being completed was only two hours. I would definitely recommend!
