Hot Water System Carked It

I've got a 12y old gas storage system. Pilot light went out and the bottom of it is full of water so assuming the tank has corroded.

Worst time of year for this to happen but can anyone recommend a plumber who can sort me out with a new one sometime in the next week?

Cheers JF

 The one on my rental SOR went last week too. Also well past the time I expected it to last. 
Mr Blockage Plumbing and Gas was who the agent used. Was done the next day and pics look good so might be worth giving them a call. 


Does anyone know where the love of god goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?

Small cheap to run . Only uses gas when you need it . Storage ones waste of money. Constantly uses gas. Best thing I ever done around house got rid of storage one

It's a bitch when anything goes wrong this time of year. Some will drop you off because they can.

If you can get the pilot out try passing some very fine wire through it.
