Florist flooded: Stock saturated after cylinder splits openDOMINICO ZAPATA/STUFF Vanessa Tarrant, the owner-operator of Grey St business Floral Essence mops up after a hot water cylinder in an upstairs business burst on Tuesday, creating a flood that ruined thousands of dollars worth of stock. A Hamilton florist's prospects of a prosperous 2018 have wilted after an upstairs hot water cylinder burst, flooding her store and ruining thousands of dollars worth of stock. A distraught Tarrant was literally mopping up and taking stock of what stock she could salvage in her Grey St store Floral Essence when Stuff.co.nz called in on Wednesday afternoon. She called the fire service, who quickly determined a hot water cylinder in the Hamilton East Dental Centre had burst, and all of the water had leaked downstairs. He estimated the service had roughly about three callouts around the country each week to deal with old hot water cylinders that had ruptured and flooded homes and businesses.
