After trying 5 different plumbers this property owner was happy to have a working hot water system
Our Client called us out to try and sort out a hot water system repair. They were having all kinds of hot water issues in their property. A number of years ago they were experiencing mixed hot and cold water, when she would only turn on the cold water tap. Hot water water would be coming out of the cold tap.
- She had called a plumber and they tried to fix it, but the plumbing issue persisted returning within a few days.
- She tried 4 other plumbers and has been experiencing the same hot and cold water issue with the hot water system for years now.
The property was a mansion that had a commercial grade plumbing set up similar to a large city building. It had a plant room with commercial grade plumbing that had hot water circulating pump systems. This made isolating any issues even more difficult than normal. There could be all kinds of pipes or things installed in rooms or hidden wall valves with pumps etc.
On inspection we found a Spring Check Valve installed but it should have been a Swing Check Valve. The Swing Check Valve had been replaced, so the property owner and every other plumber assumed it wasn’t the issue, but, this type of valve is actually not designed for commercial hot water set ups and was obviously failing due to the mechanical set up of the valve. The return line always stays hot for instant hot water hence it causes the springs to fail in a Spring Check Valve. It’s actually a Legal requirement to install the right valve, it’s not necessarily a dodgy plumbing job, but it’s just a job that should have been done with a little bit more knowledge and care. This is why it is so important to choose an experienced plumber like Nu-Trend
