Large apartment buildings usually have a bulk hot water system (also known as a centralised hot water system) which delivers water to each apartment. A bulk hot water system has to provide a reliable supply to every apartment.
The complexity of these systems and the requirement to maintain the right temperature can be demanding on the components, leading to long term failure.
A typical bulk hot water service will include:
- Ring main Valves
- Sensor devices
- An integrated solar system
The complexity of these systems and the requirement to maintain the right temperature can be demanding on the components, leading to regular breakdowns.
Any loss of supply or drop in temperature can lead to resident complaints and emergency call outs. To reduce call outs and fees, Webb Plumbing Services recommends its Hot Water Service Maintenance program.
The Hot Water Service Maintenance program can identify issues and resolve them before the service breaks down and escalates costs.
The team at Webb Plumbing Services can tailor the program to suit the hot water system and usually includes:
- Temperature checks and tests
- Clearing any filters
- Checking hot water units and storage units
- Checking circulating pumps and associated piping
- Checking valves
- Checking main components
- Main hot water units
- Storage units
- Circulating pumps and associated pipes
