Everyone wants to feel warm and snug in winter and for many people a luxurious bath is a highlight at the end of a chilly day. Imagine opening the hot water tap, adding a dash of your favourite bubble bath... then the shock of finding yourself in water colder than Jack Frost's jacket.

Geyser failure isn't a pleasant experience at any given time but during winter it's one of the worst.

Cashbuild, South Africa's largest building materials retailer, sources their affordable geyser products from reputable companies only.

Hot facts

  • Choose a plumber who is registered with IOPSA (Institute of Plumbing South Africa) and SAIA (South African Insurance Association) to install your geyser.
  • If you use an unqualified plumber to install your geyser you're not only putting your life at risk but your geyser won't be covered by insurance if it breaks down
  • In 2006 SAIA estimated that between 30 000 and 40 000 geysers were installed every month in South Africa, of which 65 per cent were replacements paid for by the insurance industry.
  • This was costing the industry up to R300 million a year which is why SAIA encourages you to use registered and qualified plumbers.
