    RWTK: Good plumber to help fix solar hot water system?

    Hi PSB,

    Been in our current place for about 3 years now and is the first joint I've lived in with a solar hot water system. Need someone to come round and give it a look over because it's started playing up lately. Booster is set to come on from 4:30 - 6:30 every morning and evening, if the water temp is low enough for it to kick in, but lately I've notice we're getting blisteringly hot water and the booster light is on solid for the entire two hour window. This used to not be the case, I originally thought the booster was cactus because after a few cloudy days in winter the water would be tepid at best. So I'm thinking the thermostat has failed and needs replacing. Don't get me wrong, I love a roasting hot shower in the morning, but my power bill is going to be ridiculous at this rate and I don't want to damage the unit by overheating it (if even possible, I don't know).

    I originally called the SolaHart service folks and a guy came and had a look at it, but he was a bit fucking useless, to be honest. Just said it was in good shape and could give it a service for me (which wouldn't have solved the problem) and couldn't really give me much info at all. Just seemed like a lazy cunt who couldn't be bothered. So I'm looking to you fine people to recommend me a good plumber who can take a look at the thing. Anyone know a good plumber you'd swear by? Many thanks in advance

    Yep. Can't find his number though.

    He is in Chidlow and operated under NPJ Services.

    I only know of a good sparky contractor in wannanup, probably too far for him.
