    Anyone got any recommendations for a plumber to replace an electric HWS (125ltr) in Redcliffe QLD area?

    Cheers

    Hi Roy,

    I've been trying to find who I used ages ago but couldn't so I'll offer a bit of advice instead after replacing several 125ltr HWS over the past few years - Electric hot water tanks have a lifespan on average around 12 - 15 years, more if you're lucky. Pick a 2 - 3 year old one up from ebay/gumtree and pay a plumber hourly to pick it up/hook it up. Cost to replace a brand new one will be approx. $1000+ but doing it my way will cost $500 tops.

    Standard electric HWS are pretty basic things and not a lot can go wrong with them if they are fairly new and installed properly
