Electrician looked at it today. Diagnosis: stuffed. Rusted out. No wonder there was a cane toad living under it!
So, tomorrow the electrician will be replacing my 16 and a half year old HWS with a new one! And I will pay most of the money for the HWS, and the rest on Payday. It's good to live in the country!
The old HWS was a 315L Hardie-Dux. The electrician said that I was lucky to get 16 plus years out of it.
Der. Hardie-Dux, not a Rheem. It's being replaced by a 315L Rheem. $1135, plus installation.
Yay, extra hot shower tomorrow night! Yippee!
My Bestie from Perth's son will be here weekend after next with his wife. I have to get my A into G and sort out the spare room... LOL. More work than you can imagine!
Honest, Wand, that brouchure you sent me really does look like my Hardie-Dux!
