So good so far

published

replaced my faulty rheem one with this dux model from bunnings. installation was very smooth and the system is also working perfect for over 2 months now. thermostat is set to 6 and still hot water flowing timely which is way better than previous one.
Pilot indicator is missing which would be a good plus though.

best hot water service we have ever had

published

non stop hot water with 4 adults having long showers and never runs out of hot water like our previous units, seems to be more power efficient than others we have had. Have recommended this unit to all our friends and family.

Purchased at Bunnings Warehouse Online Store for $1,400.

Just installed and working perfectly

published

Bought and installed by Bunnings all done over the phone in 2 days.
Was bought to replace an old 15 year old Dux where pilot light keeps going out. Hoping this will one will last just as long.
Only thing that the installer didn't do was release the relief valve as it was making scary sounds when I turned on the hot water tap, but called him and talked me through on how to release the relief valve.
So far, it's ok.

No issues, works well

published

Finally replaced 20 year old Dux hot water service with another Dux. The previous one still worked but was on the way out.

No issues with this new unit thus far. It works well, is quiet, and delivers enough hot water that I've not had to worry about it running out. Hope to have 20 years of service out of this one too.

Regarding the ordering process, I gave Bunnings a call and it was arranged quickly and easily. Had some reservations about the plumber they contract the job out to as I have no control over who they choose but the plumber that performed the swap over was great.

Overall very happy with the outcome.

Fast, clean and good installation work

I ordered the product from Bunnings with reasonable price. Bunnings coordinated the product installation date for me. The installer did fast, clean and good installation work. The water temperature of the product is very stable. The product is running so smooth and so far so good.

Pain free replacement of our old unit.

published

Highly recommend the Dux hot water unit. Researched the unit for value , efficiency and installation before we purchased the unit. The whole process was a simple phone call to Bunnings , then I was contacted by the installer who attended promptly. They installed the unit and removed the old unit. Left everything neat , tidy and gates locked behind them. Lovely hot water without any issues. Highly recommend .

Prodigy 4

My Prodigy 4 gas water heater is about 15 months old. Few weeks ago I noticed each time I open or close water tap a loud bang coming out from the heater. Definitely it is coming out from the heater and not from water pipe. Is the banging indicate any fault within the heater? Will hammer silencer installed outside the heater solve the problem or the heater should be inspect by a technician?
The model number is 135ZB4N.
I will appreciate your advise.
Kind regards Andrew
