Proper Geyser Service


1)Electrical components can fail! They usually carry a 1 year guarantee and are easily replaceable while the geyser is already open.


2) Vacuum Breakers often become blocked, rendering them useless. These are also easily replaceable while work is being performed on the Geyser.

*additional parts may be required depending on the existing system

Both Service Options entail the replacement of the crucial *Geyser Anode, which prevents the geyser from rusting away while the anode is in active. We then close everything up with a new Flange Gasket Washer, pressure test the system and turn on the electrics. (All this applies to Steel Geysers Only). *50 percent deposit required to commence task. A geyser assessment would need to be done to confirm the make and model of the existing geyser to match the correct serviceable parts. This pricing is based on the standard Kwikot and Heattech Steel geyser models.

The existing geyser installation must also allow access and enough space for servicing (as a compliant installation must).

The secret to a long lasting geyser is regular servicing 


Most geysers are made of STEEL and barely make it past their guaranteed lifespan, (which is usually 5 years). Without servicing the inner cylinder starts rusting away rapidly after about 2 years of use (depending on water quality).  


The *ANODE is the most important serviceable part in a STEEL GEYSER. It prevents the geyser from RUSTING AWAY!


The *Vacuum Breakers often get clogged up and stop functioning, increasing the risk of an *imploding inner cylinder. Electrical components are generally only guaranteed for a year of use, so it’s not a bad idea to change those at the same time.


This should always be done every 2 years of use, so the spare parts don’t get rusted in. Leaving it too late could even make it impossible to carry out the service.


I have compiled 2 service options, to fit different budgets. The "Major" and the "Budget" service options, both based the most standard steel Geysers on the South African Market.

*Geyser Anode

The ANODE is the most important serviceable part in a STEEL GEYSER, because it is the part that saves the geyser from rusting away. STEEL RUSTS, that's just science. The Anode is usually a Magnesium or Aluminium rod, that sits inside the geyser and corrodes away, detracting the rust reaction away from the Steel inner cylinder.


As soon as the ANODE has fully corroded, the geyser cylinder will begin rusting away and eventually burst, unless the ANODE is regularly replaced.

*Vacuum Breakers


Vacuum Breakers are one way valves, which are installed on the inlet and outlet pipes of a geyser installation. They allow air into the system if there is ever SUCTION or NEGATIVE pressure in the geyser system. This could happen any time the water is off and someone opens a tap. The Vacuum breakers Neutralise the pressure in the system preventing the inner cylinder from imploding from the suction. This could seriously compromise the integrity of the pressurised system.
