Is the water heater vented or unvented?
Vented, via the spout.
Can I fit ordinary taps to the water heater instead of the spout?
No because the spout is the vent. Fitting the water heater to ordinary taps will cause pressure to build up inside the unit.
Are there any special taps that can be fitted?
You can get vented taps. These are complicated and expensive, but look like regular taps and allow the unit to be sited under the sink. But if you are doing this, why not use a Speedflow?
What is the tank made of?
The tank is made from plastic.
What is the kW rating of the water heater?
Is there a safety cut-out on the water heater?
Yes - the Handyflow point of use water heater has a manually re-settable thermal cut-out.
What is the problem if the spout starts dripping on the heating cycle?
There is no problem, a slight dripping is perfectly normal.
What does the neon light mean?
The element is on.
How many sinks can a Handyflow water heater serve?
Only one because the spout will only reach to one sink.
Can I get a longer spout for the water heater?
The standard spout length is 8”, but we do have a 10” spout available if a customer requires it.

Yes, this water heater connects to mains water pressure.

Ask a question?
During the winter I will want to drain the cylinder - is that possible? I know it won't freeze up cos of the facility to heat itself up but over the winter period I would want to avoid the wasted energy turning it off and draining down the cylinder. Tha
It is possible to do this. All you have to do is turn off the mains water and electricity to the unit, and drain the tank.
