Hot Water Granville
It was Holly’s 25th birthday and her fiancée wanted to buy her a gift that she had talked about for a long time. He had been looking on the internet and found a breeder of labradoodles, her favourite breed of dogs in a suburb near Granville.
He asked Holly if she wanted to go for a drive to help him pick out a special birthday present. Holly was intrigued at what he had in mind. She was even more perplexed when he pulled up outside the front of someone’s house. The owner of the house was in in on the surprise and greeted the pair on the front lawn.
“Come this way.” The smiling lady said. Holly wrinkled her brow wondering what on earth Rick had organised. As she walked through the side gate her thoughts disappeared and were replaced by an overwhelming sense of joy. Playing on the lawn were 6 labradoodle puppies! Rick smiled at Holly and said “Take you pick Hun, one of these lucky dogs is coming home with us.” Holly was so excited she couldn’t believe this was the surprise. She gave Rick a hug, “How will I choose?” she asked. “I don’t know that you will have to.” As she looked down a chocolate colour puppy was sitting at her feet, almost as if it was asking to be the one Holly chose.
As they were driving home with the puppy Holly was giving it all of her love, the puppy nestled into her and she was sure they would be friends forever. Holly and Rick arrived home and were playing with the puppy in the backyard when they noticed that there was a lot of hot water dripping from their tank.
“Have you ever noticed that before” Rick asked Holly. “No can’t say I have.” She replied. They watched the drip for a while and it seemed pretty consistent. Rick decided not to leave it to chance and called Your Neighbourhood Plumber Granville to have it checked out.
David the Granville Plumber arrived and explained that it was normal for water to drip from the temperature and pressure relief valve when the system is heating because water expands as it is heated. However if the valve drips or runs continuously, the hot water temperature and cold water inlet pressure needs to be checked.
After his further investigations, he found that the water was too hot and the thermostat needed to be replaced. He replaced the thermostat and the water drip had all but stopped.
