Came across this the other day. This relief pipe from a hot water cylinder was dripping so someone thought "Silicon will fix this!"
These pipes are SUPPOSED to drip when the cylinder is heating. If blocked up it could potentially cause your hot water cylinder to blow up - see Myth Busters video to see what happens when 180 litres of water instantly turns into 198,000 litres of steam - Ouch!
If your relief pipe is ALWAYS dripping or dribbling, call us, we'll fix it.

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.
Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.
In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.
