Hi i have a vulcan freeloader super 10 the question i have is these no pressure in the tap or these not much water cames out when in use of hot water

Dave, is this a small electric heater for just one sink? Are all water supply valves turned on completly, at the heater and the house main supply line? If they are, and without a bit more info about how it is used, I'll give an educated guess. Please check your faucet aerator, the part right at the tip of the faucet where the water comes out. It is usually screwed in counter-clockwise. you may be able to unscrew it by hand, or with a small wrench. Most of them have very small flat areas on both side of the unit to use a wrench. .Look at it carefully when you remove it and you would find a screen and several other parts as you disassemble it, being cautious to lay parts out in the order they come out all the way to the last screen. One of the parts is a piece of plastic that has tiny holes around the edge, and they may have tiny pieces of debris that block the holes so water cannot flow properly. clean them out carefully by blowing or using a toothpick to ease them out of the way. when cleaned, along with the screens, reassemble in reverse order and re-install into the faucet. If it is completly clogged, you can replace it inexpensively at the hardware store or Lowes/home depot. take you's with you to identify the replacement. Good luck.

Vulcan freeloader 260 suddenly turns off after heating to temperature. Control unit was just replaced but still doing the same. I was told by another person it is the thermo couple but the fitter said

The thermocouple makes sense, if it does not send enough electricity to the control unit it will shut off. The thermocouple was probably moved when a new control unit was installed. Check to be sure the pilot flame touches the thermocouple, if not realign it else replace it.

We are getting a brown colour in our hot water from our Vulcan freeloader (assume this is where its from anyway). Is this a fixable problem or will we need to look at a new unit? The current unit is about...

unfortunately there is no fix other than replacing the tank, it has a lot of rust buildup inside over 18 years, which is a very long time for a hot water tank today.

Can I replace the pilot light on a Vulcan Freeloader 260 gas HWS? old is the unit? Today it is very common for gas appliances to have electric igniters instead of a pilot light. Unless you are familiar with gas controll/regulator valves I would not recommend trying this yourself. I believe it is more likely a faulty or dirty thermo-couple. Again , unless you are familiar with the opperation of gas supplies ,controls ,etc. DO NOT ATTEMP to do this yourself!!! Gas is very dangerous for the less than well informed! Call a service pro or speak to and ask for the assistance of a knowledgable friend.
