If your using the water for commercial applications, then the chances are you won’t be physically touching it and it will be around 75 to 85 degrees Celsius A fact about hot water and its temperatures that is not written any where is this: Households with temperature control pads installed on their Rinnai, Rheem or Bosch continuous flow water heaters will have two preferred temperature settings.
For women they always report to us that for a shower the perfect temperature is 42 degrees Celsius and for men they always nominate 39 degrees Celsius. Now there is no written rule or suggestion of this anywhere its purely based upon our experience in the hot water industry.
The disadvantage of having a big storage water heater inside such as 250L or even a 315L mains pressure system is the amount of room it takes up. In majority of the apartment we work on in the city and around Unley and Myrtle Bank there simply is no other option. If there is gas to the property, then the Bosch 4000s is something to consider where it is flued to atmosphere and provides continuous flow water.
Another is the Rinnai 26i this once again is an internal continuous flow water heater which can save space. External water heaters tend to provide more flexibility and are more common in general across Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills locations of the state. There are restrictions with these gas style water heaters also:
- They must be a minimum of 1m from any gas meter
- Minimum of 300mm away from an eave
- Minimum of 300mm away from an opening such as a window or door
- Maximum of 800kpa pressure rating on the incoming side
- Gas supply to be sized adequately to achieve a minimum of 1.13kpa working pressure for natural gas installations continuous flow water heaters
- Rheem Stellar 330 and 360 gas storage mains pressure systems
- Rheem Metro range of continuous flow hot water services
- DUX Prodigy 5 in both the 135 litre and 170 litre range
- Rinnai Infinity and Rinnai Builders range from 16 litres per minute to 26 litres per minute
- DUX Endurance range of continuous flow hot water systems
- Rinnai Hotflo 10 litre model ideal for when power for ignition a problem and the demand on the system is is low such as a 1-bedroom unit
There was once a time where quality reigned superior over price, whereas now it has done a complete 360 and price reigns over quality, we have become a throwaway society. Microwaves, Televisions, Washing Machines and Hot Water Services are all just taken as throw away items after certain period. The cost of repair including labour and materials in most circumstances out ways that of a new product.
In the plumbing industry there is a saying amongst all tradies that is “do it proper it must be copper” it’s because it last longer. Well a hot water service is no stranger to this saying. The older style low pressure water heater which many homes once had installed if they are 50 years or older in the roof was made from copper and encased inside an insulated jacket.
The reason for this is that it lasted longer and having to replace these at regular intervals was a hard job, so they made them from copper. The average Braemar, Wilson or Beasley gravity fed hot water cylinder typically lasted for 25 years providing the correct incoloy element where used to avoid electrolysis of the tank.
These tanks would not heat as quick as the modern technology today, but people managed to get by and still do today in various parts of the state such as Westbourne Park, Beaumont and Millswood. Continuous flow water heaters are the same still today the heat exchanger which perform the task of allowing the water to warm up via the gas furnace mounted inside of it and deliver it to the tap is still today made from copper. Domestic continuous flow water heaters have a slightly thinner gauge of copper for the heat exchanger to that of commercial water heaters such as the Rinnai HD250e because they are not expected to work as hard. The warranty periods on commercial water heaters are less because of the anticipated level of heated water expected from them. If a domestic water heater was to be used for commercial heating in a hotel for example it would fall under the same warranty periods of a commercial unit.
It is for this reason we offer an emergency hot water service anywhere in Adelaide no matter what the time or day is. Access to major brands like Rheem, Rinnai, Thermann and Bosch allow us to get components or new hot water systems when you need them.
Storms will quite often cause pilot lights to go out on mains pressure storage units such as a Rheem Stellar, DUX Prodigy 5 or Bosch 13P water heater. Getting these systems to re light can be a little tricky and might require the assistance of a hot water expert.
Commercial water heaters work extremely hard and it’s not unusual to get a phone call stating that expansion control valve has blown off and now will not stop purging large amounts of hot water. All these types of problems need immediate attention in order to ensure the properties safety.
