Attention: Property Owners

RE: High levels of hot water heater replacements found not to meet Compliance standards

Is your hot water heater compliant?

In July this year the QBCC posted an update on the high rates of non-compliance associated with hot water heater replacements with up to 40% of all installations failing to meet required Compliance Standards.

There were many key defect identified including:

  • Insufficient insulation on inlet and outlet
  • Tempering valve not installed
  • Safe trays not installed
  • Overflow lines not discharging
  • Incorrect orientation of solar collectors
  • Failing to lodge a form 4

You can view the full list of defects here.
