Pipe Masters have vast experience with working with gas hot water units. Here’s just a sample of some of our work.
We have two types of gas in New Zealand for residential use: natural gas (methane) and LPG (Propane/Butane mix).
How you can tell if your LPG has run out?
Good question. If you have 2x 45kg gas bottles you will normally have an ‘auto change over regulator’ between the bottles. When one bottle runs out, the regulator automatically changes to the full bottle. There’s normally a red indicator when the regulator has swapped, meaning you need to order another bottle.
What if you haven’t got hot water after changing the gas bottles?
Air can find its way into the gas line when bottles are changed, causing an air lock. The air needs to be purged, with the best way through letting the gas unit turn on and off to try and flush the air out. This process can take up to five minutes.
