Choosing the right Hot Water Cylinder is going to make a real difference to your home.

First you need to consider why you need a new hot water cylinder

  • Is it just because your old cylinder is leaking?
  • Do you have an old low pressure model cylinder, and you want to get better pressure?
  • Are you wanting to upgrade to a mains pressure, or high pressure?
  • How often do you run out of hot water?
  • Will the family water use change, or has it changed?
  • Are you having children, or have all your children left and its just 2 of you there now?
  • Do you have a big old cylinder which is costing too much to heat?
  • Or do you want to move the cylinder outside so you can use your cupboard for something else?


Once you have decided why you need a new hot water cylinder it will help to choose what will be best for you

  • Be clear in your mind about what bothers you now.
  • If you do not over come the issue that prompted you to upgrade, the outcome is never going to be successful,
  • Upgrading to a new mains pressure hot water cylinder will give you good pressure, but if you run out of water now, this will no necessarily solve that issue.
  • With the option of gas which is available now you can have endless hot water on demand
  • Or if you upgrade to solar you can massively reduce your monthly bill to heat water, but keep in mind if you do not intend staying in your home for many years, due to the increased cost of installation you may never ever get to enjoy the long term savings.
  • So in making sure you get the best Hot Water Cylinder for you, there is much to consider.

Customers we have fitted Rheem Hot Water Cylinders for and what they said about our service

“The special offers at the home show in addition to the information on benefits of gas water heating prompted us to use Regency plumbing. They installed gas water heating and a gas hob connection in our home with a large complex layout. A quote was given by the end of day, and within 3 working days, appointment booked and a job well done. The team at Regency were friendly and completed the job efficiently and to a very high standard. Our low pressure trickling showers have transformed to water blasters! Thank you Regency.” Kavita, Botany Downs

We also install many hot water cylinders also, but more and more people are going to gas.

Why, are they going to gas? For all the key benefits:
