Specialising in Saxon hot water systems and Saxon Filler Valves
Cold water travels through this coil en route to your taps and collects heat from the stored water kept inside the tank which is heated by an electric element.
It is common for the storage water to evaporate and drop in level, when this happens the coil can become exposed therefore the cold water traveling through the coil may not have picked up enough heat by the time it reaches your taps to give you that warm shower you were after.
We repair Saxon hot water systems and filler valves in Brisbane and the surrounding areas. Parts are limited for these particular hot water systems due to the company going out of business in June 2011 however we still have some spare parts including Filler Valves in stock.
Did You Know
Saxon hot water tanks should be ‘topped up’ at least once every 6 months in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations.
Lift the lever on the filler valve and allow water to enter the tank until it starts to dribble through the overflow pipe - this pipe is marked on the tank.
It’s a good idea to get a small bucket to collect this water if the drain pipe is not connected to outside the building.
When replacing a Saxon hot water system tank you will pay more than you would if you had any standard type electric hot water system such as a Rheem, Dux or Rinnai etc. This is because the Saxon tanks had no requirement for expansion control valves which are necessary for all other storage tank hot water systems such as Gas Storage, Solar and Heat Pump hot water systems. Extra valves and installation costs are unavoidable in this instance.
All storage type hot water systems have some kind of valve set up but don’t be confused when it come to your Saxon hot water system Filler Valve and expansion control / pressure relief valves. Over the years we have had numerous calls asking us to repair a hot water system because the valve is not working only to find that the customer had been confused by the valve type. Lifting the lever on an expansion control / pressure relief valve should immediately discharge water however it is common for a Saxon hot water system to take 30 seconds up to 5 minutes to fill before water discharges from the overflow pipe.

"I have used Brisbane Plumbing and Gas several times now and have been more than happy with the work and the price and they do turn up on time. The last time I used them, they fixed my solar hot water system, 100% professional workmanship. I would recommend to others with no hesitation."
"Fantastic service. Billy arrived right on time, diagnosed the problem within minutes and carried the parts on the va. Overall could not have been happier."
