Hot water cylinders are a feature that can be found in almost every home around the country. Used to send hot water to your shower, bath, sinks and more, this piece of equipment is essential to keeping your utilities functioning correctly. The type of cylinder you need will depend on your current plumbing system. Without the help of experts, you may invest in a cylinder that is ill-suited for your home.
As cylinders age, it is inevitable that they will encounter faults that lessen their efficiency or render them useless. At No1 PHD in Basingstoke, we’re able to replace this essential household utility through our professional plumbing installations. Our skilled and experienced plumbers can provide expert advice to ensure you receive a cylinder that is suitable for your home or business premises.
There are two types of hot water cylinders: vented and unvented. The former is fed water using the cold mains pressure and delivers hot water directly to your home facilities. The water within the system is heated through either your central heating system or via solar technology. Vented systems, on the other hand, are gravity-led and rely on a cold-water tank, which feeds the cylinders water that is then heated through an immersion heater.
There are a number of notable benefits to having a hot water cylinder, some of which include that they:
Unfortunately, due to their frequent use, issues can occur over time that renders your hot water cylinder unusable. One of the most common problems is a broken coil, which results in the murky brown water from the central heating mixing with the water in your cylinder. This is, of course, an issue that is unhygienic and one that should be dealt with immediately. Without an effective fix, you’ll find that water is not fit to clean with on drink, depending on the utility.
While broken coil repairs are commonly carried out, they often aren’t possible due to the extent of the damage or the age of the cylinder. It is in these cases where it is necessary to invest in a more modern replacement. Our knowledgeable plumbing team in Basingstoke can advise you on what model would be most suitable for your home so that you can make an informed purchase. Once you’ve settled on the specifics, we’ll arrange a convenient date to visit your property.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
