West Auckland Hot Water Cylinder Repair – Why You Need To Hire A Qualified Plumber
When your hot water cylinder is not functioning properly, it might be tempting to call companies that advertise extensively on TV or the local papers. However, for people living in the Henderson and west Auckland area in general, it is much better to hire a qualified plumber that is trained by the manufacturing agents to repair a hot water cylinder.
Why do we suggest that it is better to hire qualified plumber for hot water cylinder repair?
Hot water cylinders are complex
First, a hot water cylinder is quite a sophisticated device. Not only does it have the obvious plumbing issues such as potential leaks in the skin of the cylinder, and leakages in the connecting joints, but it also involves quite complex electrical work too. We are all aware that water and electricity do not mix so it is vital that his work is carried out by fully trained and authorised personnel so that there are no faults further down the track which could result in such extreme problems as a house fire.
Are you hiring the right plumber to fix your hot water cylinder?
With so many plumbers in west Auckland, how will you know the right plumber for the job? In fact, you should do your homework and be patient until you come across the right plumbing contractor for the project. Most homeowners make the mistake of choosing the first plumber they come across when looking for the plumbers in the area. This should be avoided at all cost if you want to pick the right plumber for the job. Do your search on Google but look over their website to make sure you are picking a qualified plumber to fix your hot water cylinder.
Is the company you hire for hot water cylinder repair actually a plumber?
Some companies are not hot water cylinder repairers but take enquiries from home-owners and then pass that repair job onto the cheapest plumber they can find in the area. So your cylinder is not in fact being fixed by the company you were expecting. This means that the plumber who comes to you probably is not even be fully trained to the standards of the Master Plumbers Association or the manufacturer.

Most house-holders will at some stage, need to hire a plumber as a result many people decide to become a plumber as they know they will have a steady and regular job. However, that does not mean they are trained in all aspects of plumbing and certainly not to the highest standards. A Master Plumber on the other hand, is well-trained and experienced in handling all aspects of plumbing. They have received extensive training both in the training room and of course on the job alongside more experienced plumbers. In fact, they have to pass regular and rigorous assessment in order to obtain the Master Plumber’s accreditation. So if you hire a Master Plumber you can be confident you are hiring someone who has been accredited by the highest standards set by their industry peers.
