Norwood, South Australia, 5067
Norwood has a mixed range of properties. Many of the older style villas have either been demolished or renovated and extended. This is very similar to St Peters which borders Norwood. Recently the Parade has seen some extensive renovations with the Bath hotel now added apartments above its existing pub and Norwood Green on Magill Road is about to commence after the demolition of the Caroma warehouse.
Aldi has already established itself in the Norwood Green precinct. With a population today of 34,000 this inner-city location is under the City of Norwood, Payneham and St Peters council district. The very first form of public transport was installed in 1877, it was a tram and was first used in 1878 and it connected Norwood to Kensington.
Today many of Adelaide’s residents will use the wide tree lined Osmond Terrace which is home to war memorial commemorating the Anzac soldiers who fought in the first and second world wars. The Norwood oval is home to the SANFLs team Red Legs. You will find this particular end of the Parade very busy on weekends when a football match is being played.
Plumbers On Tap
Understanding that a plumbing emergency will arise when no one expects it is what we do best. The advantage for us is that we use a near by business on Charles Street in Norwood for all our plumbing supplies. Gaining access to crucial parts for popular brands such as Rheem, Rinnai, DUX, Aqua MAX, ZIP, Billi, Solar Hart, Edwards, Chromagen, Midea, Stiebel Eltron and Bosch hot water services are what we do best.
Tradelink are open whenever we need a plumbing part and if there not there is high chance that our service vans will have
the parts in stock.
Hot Water Systems For Norwood
The infrastructure which was originally installed in this inner-city location can be very old if the property has not undergone any maintenance. Leaking gas pipes and water mains can cause big issues. If one of these components of a home are failing it can cause the hot water system to underperform. Many of the newer continuous flow or otherwise known as instantaneous hot water systems will have temperature control pads installed which make diagnosing problems easier for our onsite service technicians.
In order to comply with manufacturers guidelines a continuous flow water heater should have a minimum of a 20mm or ¾” copper tube coming into the unit for the natural gas supply. Depending on the size of the hot water service it will govern what size water inlet and outlet should be used. For a 16-litre heater 15mm or ½’ water supply can be used with a maximum recommended inlet water pressure of 800 kilopascals.
When you start to look at the larger models such as the Rinnai B20 of Rheem Metro 26 ideally a 20mm cold water inlet should be used.
There is a common misconception amongst the general public that larger is better! But as we try to constantly educate the public that if you do not have enough supply the unit won’t deliver. Continuous flow water heaters do not magically make more water than is supplied to them.
If you cannot deliver 26 litres of cold water to your Rinnai Infinity 26 then it will not deliver 26 litres. The same also applies to the outlet pipe size, if it cannot cope with the 26 litres being produced it will not deliver this to the house business premises. There is no need to spend more money on a new hot water service then is required.
