These units have to be fitted to a cold water feed only. You can supply to a third tap however this depends on the usage of the third out let as a 10 litre unit may struggle with the demand. This unit can be used with a mixer tap.
hi what are the running costs of this unit too fill a small sink .
This unit uses 2KW of power whilst heating, therefore you would have to see what you personally get charged from your electric provider to work out your individual costs.
Two sinks either side of a partition wall - would this be OK. Only one sink will be used at one time (beauty studio). The main water mains is approx 6M away and approx 5bar pressure. Will this be OK and will I need an expansion tank ?
Expect to only draw
No expansion vessel is required if the unit is 6 meters from the water mains.
dear sir/madam,i want to know that which electric water heater i can use to supply two points as i switch on water(without setting the device) and give required hot water( only little usage of water ) thank you
Does the heater stay on all the time or does it only heat up when water is going through it?
This heater will heat 10 litres of water whilst storing it. If you would like a unit that only heats up when water is going through it you should take a look at an instant water heater. Please follow the link below for our range of instant water heaters:
Is provision made to allow the heater to be drained as a precaution against frost? i.e. a drain plug or drain tap
If you need to drain the water heater, simply disconnect from the mains water and electricity supply. Drain the water in the tank by turning the tap on to release the water.
Does this run off a normal plug socket or does it need to run off a separate connection on the fuse board?
The unit needs to be wired into an electrical spur due to the close proximity to water.
What is the highest water temperature obtainable with this heater?
The highest water temperature for this water heater is 65 degrees Celsius.
Is this water heater unvented?
This water heater is unvented.

We are opening a small hair salon and have one backwash unit installed. The basin has a showerhead to wash hair and we need a water heater to heat the water up. I was looking at a 2kw 10L unvented unit and my question is would there be enough pressur
This water heater would be suitable for your requirements. The water pressure from the water heater will be the same water pressure from the mains water entering your property. The unit will need at least 1 bar of pressure to work. If the water pressure is more than 6 bar, then a pressure reducing valve would be required. (We would always recommend you to confirm with a qualified Tradesman before purchasing).
can the unit be mounted with inlet and outlet pointing down . as in one of the photographs.
No, this cannot be installed with the inlet and outlet pointing down. You will have to purchase an oversink water heater for this option of fitting. Please see product code 205138 for further details.
once the water temperature is reached will the unit switch of automatically and once water temperature drops will it turn on automatically, or does the unit require to be turned on and off manually.
The water heater will automatically keep the water to the temperature you set it at.
Hi, would this unit be suitable for use in a touring caravan?
This water heater would require a constant 2Kw of electric power and a minimum of 1 bar cold water pressure to operate. If your touring caravan cannot provide this, then the water heater would not be suitable.
Ask a question?
Can this unit be used with an existing vented mixer tap?
This heater cannot be used with a vented mixer tap. This is an unvented water heater and the two cannot be mixed.
