Mains Pressure Hot Water Cylinders
Mains Pressure Cylinders are usually found in new builds and renovations. They have somewhat superseded low pressure cylinders in New Zealand.
The reason that they are popular is they provide lots of hot water at a good pressure. They work well with today’s modern tapware and allow you to have many taps running at the same time with little loss of pressure.
The majority of the cylinders come with a choice of 2kw/hr or 3 kw/hr elements and are lined with enamel.
In cases where there are water hardness problems you can use a mains pressure cylinder as a low pressure cylinder to increase the life of a cylinder.
Stainless steel and Indoor outdoor options are available for most sizes of cylinders.
Because of their construction they can be used with variable pressures up to 1000kPa.
Another Option May Be a Smart Cylinder,
The smart cylinder over time learns your pattern of use through a temperature probe connected to a mini computer board. It then heats the water to the anticipated demand.
Energy is saved as water is only heated when it knows that it is going to be needed.
