Replacing your hot water cylinder can be an expensive exercise and it can suddenly ‘ Give up the ghost ‘ at the most inconvenient time.

However, did you know that you may be able to prevent the premature collapse of your unit simply by having your Local Tap Doctor inspect, and if necessary, replacing its ‘Sacrificial Anode’?

The ‘Sacrificial Anode’ is designed to be ‘eaten away’ so that the inside of your hot water cylinder isn’t.

In many cases the Tap Doctor can replace your anode and possibly extend the life of your unit.

However, if you are thinking of upgrading your existing electric hot water system to a more energy-efficient system, then the Tap Doctor can help you with that also, as he is the local service agent for Apricus split-system solar hot water systems, using the very efficient ‘evacuated tube’ technology.

We recently had an awesome experience with The Tap Doctor South branch & the mrs said we should share the experience because we are pretty happy with the outcome & think it could be valuable to others.
Our hot water tank was leaking water from the bottom of the tank and we had no hot water pressure in our house.
We built this house in 2003, and we’ve had a couple issues with the tank not re-lighting and valves leaking in the past, so we were not surprised when we were informed we needed a new one.
We called them because my old man told us to as he had used them before and he was happy.
We had a lady plumber arrive (I was a bit surprised to see a lady plumber if I’m honest but she was bloody fantastic) and we think she is an asset to the company.
She was easy to deal with, professional, & the new system looks awesome.
The thing we liked about the company mostly was we were given a quote first with all inclusive costs upfront and it was the same figure on completion, so no hidden charges.
We didn’t have to pay for her to come and give us a quote.
She was on time – a bit earlier actually &
Job was done same day.
Yes we would use this company again if needed.

Dr Brian arrived like Superman and fixed every issue
So impressed with this company
I had contacted two other well known plumbing companies: still waiting for one to get back to me over a week later & the other; the guy actually said “oh; the phone doesn’t ring very often” ….and ” I could pop out on Saturday and have a look for you”
Tap Doctor was efficient: has a regular communication set up so you’re on top of timing
I totally trusted the assessment of issues & the overall workmanship
Brilliant 🙂

Had an emergency; fast-flowing leak with hot water cascading out from under the sink. Phoned tap doctors, and the gorgeous Reece (that’s him on the ad: tall, dark, handsome and tattooed!) was at our’s within an hour! No call-out fee, he had to go get the part as our system is from Jurassic park, installed it & was all done & dusted within 40 minutes. Impressive, or what?! The tap doctor, the tap doctor YEAH!!

I had a blocked main drain & called Tap Doctor at 11am to get an appointment.

Being a Friday, I thought I’d be lucky to get anyone out before Monday so I was amazed not just that I got an appointment within the hour but the plumber also turned up when he said he would.

Also like previous times I’ve used the Tap Doctor service, he left everything more neat and tidy than he found it.

He explained up front what was involved & what the costs would be.
It wasn’t cheap but the plumber was good and turned up on time at very short notice.

So in the case of a plumbing emergency, good & quick take precedence over cheap

I have had too many experiences of plumbers with cheaper quotes for other jobs who turn up 3 hours late or sometimes not at all.

Any tradie who tells you they are cheap, good, fast and punctual is promising the impossible.

But with Tap Doctor, getting the latter 3 out of 4 is quite likely.

Tom did an excellent job of plumbing for a dishwasher in an awkward area. Tidied up beautifully. Would recommend TapDoctor South -they attend to queries & requests promptly & provided a backup service when there was a hitch with booking arrangements.

I called them after the broken of water sink and they immediately replied me & booked an appointment. They came at my place on right time and diagnosed the whole thing. After the quote they fixed my broken sink and fixed it within an hour.
Highly recommended.
