Can I install a geyser myself?

Yes, you can install a geyser by yourself. However, it is important to be aware of the risks involved in doing so. If you are not comfortable with the installation process, it is best to hire a professional.

Guide for installing a geyser

The first step in installing a geyser is to locate the water line. This is usually located near the sink or the toilet. Once you have located the water line, mark it with a piece of tape or a marker.

Next, you will need to drill a hole in the wall where the water line is located. The hole should be big enough for the pipe wrench to fit through. Drill the hole at least two inches above the water line.

Once you have drilled the hole, use the pipe wrench to loosen the nut on the water line. Be careful not to damage the pipe. Once the nut is loose, use the screwdriver to remove it completely.

Now, it is time to install the geyser. Begin by removing the cover from the top of the geyser. Next, disconnect all of the hoses from the bottom of the unit. There should be one hot water hose and one cold water hose.

Once you have disconnected all of the hoses, connect them back to the new geyser in reverse order. Make sure that each hose is seated properly and that there is no air trapped in the lines. Then, reattach the cover to the top of the geyser.


When installing a geyser, it is important to take safety precautions. Here are a few tips to help keep you safe during the installation process:

– Always wear gloves when working with pipes and wires.

– Make sure the area around the hole you are drilling is clear of any obstacles.

– Do not drill too close to combustible materials, such as wood or plastic.

– Drill slowly and carefully, making sure not to damage the wall or pipe.

  • Make sure you have turned off your electricity.

– If you are unsure about how to do something, ask for help from a professional.


The cost of installing a new geyser by yourself can vary depending on the type of geyser you choose, the tools you need, and the amount of labour involved. You can expect to spend anywhere from R2500 to R5000 on materials, and between 4 and 8 hours completing the job yourself. However, if you are not comfortable with the installation process, it is best to hire a professional.
