Common Hot Water Issues and Questions

What size hot water system do I need?

That depends on the type of system, a tankless on-demand water heater or a conventional electric water heater. For a family of 4, on average a 250L hot water system is suitable and a 160L tank is suitable for 2 people.

Price of a hot water system in Brisbane?

A 250L conventional electric hot water system is about $1690 including installation.
A 160L tank water heater is on average $1600 including installation.

Can I put a tankless water heater in my house?

Yes that is an option for all houses. You must have a gas meter on your house or have gas bottles ready to be booked up to the system. Electric tankless on-demand water heaters are also an option but are more expensive for the equivilant amount of continuous flow of hot water.

Is a tankless water heater better?

I personally recommend a gas instantaneous hot water system as the electric tankless systems often do not keep up with the supply needs.

How long does a tankless water heater last?

It will run hot water endlessly! The service lifetime of a unit is expected to be around 10 years.

Do tankless water heaters need maintenance?

Yes, Yearly maintenance is required to clean the system and clear any debris out.

Electric hot water system prices

We sell and install both Instant and Electric Hot Water Systems.

Electric Tank Hot Water Systems:
This is the most common hot water system we install. Sizes range from 25L tanks to 400L tanks. These systems have a heating element within the tank that heats the water.
Prices start from $500 for smaller systems and range up to $1900 for larger tanks.

Instant Hot Water Systems:
Instant Water Heaters do not store water in a dedicated tank, they instead instantly heat water that passes through. This gives you instant and unlimited hot water and is the reason Instant Hot Water Systems are becoming increasingly more popular.
To be able to instantly head the water the system will require a large amount of power than an electric tank based system and its required that your house will have access to 3 phase power.
Instant Hot Water Systems cost in the range of $800 to $1500.

If you have any queries on Electric or Instant Hot Water Systems, please call the team at Top Choice Plumbing on 1300 989 332 and talk to a qualified Plumber in your area today!

What's involved in an electric water water replacement?

For the majority of systems, valves and the copper pipe will need replacing. Any over flows will be run off to the drain. Once your Hot Water System is installed a Form 4 Certification is supplied and this will be used with your warranty.

Why is my water heater is continuously running?This can be due from a number of things:
  • A valve might need replacing
  • Your tank may have rusted on the inside which will cause the tank to continuously run.
  • Depending on what type of tank you have, it might have a split in the internal tank

If you are having any issues with your hot water tank running continuously this will cause your electricity bill will rise dramatically also causing a much higher water bill. Talk to one of our local qualified plumbers today on 1300 989 332.

Water is running from the top of the water heater

In most cases this is due to the internal water tank becoming rusted from old age and water seeping through the holes. Talk to one of our local qualified plumbers today on 1300 989 332.

Why is my hot water running out quickly?

If you experience a shortage of hot water, in most cases its the volume of your hot water system is not being large enough. The larger the system, the more hot water you have.
