Vulcan company information

Vulcan is one of the smaller players in the Australian hot water system market, and is owned by parent company Rheem. They don't actually manufacture their own systems, rather re-brand a small selection of Rheem products which are sold under the Vulcan label.

Vulcan mostly specialises in electric and gas storage tank systems. Like all Rheem products, these are exceptionally well made and built to last in the tough Australian climate. Our plumbers can supply, install and repair all makes and models of Vulcan water heaters.
