I have never had a hot water system fail so quickly

It was made in 2019, and has just failed. I’m really disappointed . It services a house of 2.

I am personally used to hit water systems lasting a good 10 years plus so 4 years was a huge letdown.

Thankfully the local plumbers were great and replaced the thermostat within 24 hours.but I am disappointed that this system has cost us another $200 and inconvenience so early in it’s life. Show details

Not built to last

This unit was installed when I bought my house 2 years ago. The date of manufacture is 2014 (8 years ago), but already it has rusted through at the bottom and is leaking. Replacing it with something better.

Best hot water unit i have ever purchased

Purchased just over 3 years ago now and it exceeded my expectations, i see some "negative" reviews here but i cant see why as this unit was much more reliable than my old rheem unit

Failure after 2+ years

The unit was installed in early February, 2019 by Nightcliff Plumbing. It worked well until late May, 2021 when the heating failed. Our previous hot water heater lasted 15 years.  Show details

System failure before 5 years

I bought a thermann hot water system on 11/03/2016 which means it is less than 5 years old and it failed this morning. It is a disappointment for a well branded name like yours to fail within that period time. My old system lasted 14 years. I was not expecting that long but at least to last for the first 5 years which it has not. Very disappointed. I had to pay $200 for something it should covered under your warranty (7 years)  Show details

Was working fine now not producing enough hot water for 4 people

Installed by a licenced plumber and it replaced a 17 yr old Saxon. Less than 5 years on and with regular servicing it's now not producing enough hot water for 2 adults and 2 kids. Have tried to contact them to no avail. I will never buy another one and will be telling everyone to steer clear Show details

I am a plumber and these are my preferred heaters

I replace 5 hot water systems a week on average and I can attest to these heaters being on par with all the big names, if not better.

I have not had a single failure or call back in 3 years.

I only decided to write this review after reading what some sour grapes wrote. Perhaps you should review the plumber and not the heater. Most of the problems related to new hot water systems are installer mistakes, but they won’t tell you that.

By the way. These heaters are made in the same AUSTRALIAN factory as at least 3 other brands. They’re made to a higher specification since Reece have stringent quality control systems in place. Show reply

A few issues but great service by Thermann

I purchased a THERMANN 160L Hot water system from Solarhart Mandurah & energy house on 15/01/2019.

We have had issues with the unit resetting a few time.

We have had a reply back from Thermann and Rick was extremely helpful and sympathetic to the problems we were having with this unit. He arranged for an electrician to come out and change the thermostat. This has now been changed so we will see if this fixes the issue.
Thank you for taking the time to reply and hopefully fix the problem. Your after sales service has been excellent.
as of the 25/2/21 our thermann hot water system is still working great with absolutely no more problems. Show details ·  1

Rubbish Product & Warranty

Warranty replacement of leaking tank 6-8 mths after $1600 purchase. Plumbers charged $304.50 for “difficult warranty install”. Install ONLY occurred because of their faulty product and I was forced to pay the installation which took 1 plumber 4 hrs and he was assisted by my son. Install comprised cutting and installing one 30 cm length of pipe with 2 pieces, lifting tank over toilet with assistance of my son . Show details

Good Electric Hot Water System

I bought and Installed this Hot Water System (HWS) from a local Plumber in Brisbane to replace my 23 years old saxon HWS.
This Hot Water System is good and produce enough hot water for my family (3 Person).
However, there is only single copper element inside the HWS unit and therefore, I would think, won't last as long as Saxon HWS.
The HWS come with Temperature Regulator, which Prevent people from burning their skin when using hot water.
The Water Temperature is nice and warm.
Overall, I am satisfied with this HWS. Show details

how do you adjust the outward tempeture for the single element system? I find the water excessively hot and not required to be that tempeture. I have previously adjusted other systems for safety reason. (living with a cognitive impaired person)

Are thermann electric hot water tanks only made to last a few years ? Are they the cheaper model made by Dux ? I have noticed a lot of complaints about the thermann hot water tanks failing after a few years ? Should I by one ?
