Tip 1: How to turn on the water heater

All water heaters are designed to heat water in an environment where there is no centralized hot water supply.There are several types of water heaters: Cumulative (boilers), flow and gas water heaters.Furthermore, by the location of the tank, they are divided into horizontal and vertical.The most convenient and practical - a vertical electric water heaters.
you need
  • flexible water hoses in a metal sheath, 2 crane 0.5 inch wrench 22/24, tape Fuma (special soft tape for sealing threaded connections), socket (euros)ground contact, electrically, brackets for mounting the heater to the wall, a screwdriver.

Electric storage water heater (boiler) heats the water up to 55-75 degrees, after which maintains its temperature automatically.Because heating takes place gradually, such apparatus does not require large power expenditure.Even a 150-liter boilers consume substantially less than 1.5-2 kW.Capacity water heater can range from 10 to 500 liters.
2
The instantaneous water heater
heats water instantly, passing through the heating element of high power (capacity of 6 to 27 kW), so the heaters of this type are removed from the network once more, in comparison with the boiler, the amount of electricity.On the other hand, the flow heater may provide an unlimited quantity of hot water, and requires regular maintenance.
3
gas instantaneous water heaters are designed to provide hot water.They are safe in operation: safety valve with thermocouple block the gas supply if the burner goes out accidentally.Ignition device is fully automated and does not require regulation, while ensuring complete combustion of gas during start-up.The gas water heater can be adjusted the water temperature, while the automatic will ensure its permanence, regardless of the water pressure drops.
4
to be wall-mounted storage water heaters take the brackets with hooks, fasten them securely to the wall.On the back side of the heater has a special device is suspended with two holes.Hang water heater on the brackets.
5
now necessary to bring cold water to the device by screwing the pre-inlet valve to the ball valve and screwed to the tap hose, which is connected to the water supply.At the exit of hot water and put a tap output from the tap hot water to hot water pipes, which will have you in the bathroom and the kitchen.At the same time open the valve intake of cold water and hot water outlet valve, while not forget to open any hot water tap, for example, in the bathroom, so that the air came out of the water heater tank.When the water goes out of the tap in the bathroom, so the water heater tank is filled with water.
6
Now you need to connect boiler to the mains.To do this, set the outlet (euro) with earthing contact, to bring her electric wire with a diameter of at least 2.5 mm, better separate line from the meter.Grounding in a house is better to make in the cellar, scoring angle iron into the ground at least 1 meter.
7
Plug the heater into a power outlet.Turn the water heater on the START (Power), select the temperature level.After about an hour the water warms up and water heater is ready for use.

Tip 2: How to turn on the boiler installation

boiler in the apartment and in the country will solve the problem of interruptions in the supply of hot water.Connection method entirely depends on the device type and its specifications.
How to turn on the boiler
Guide
1
When deciding where to install the water heater guided by the type of device.It can be floor, wall or embedded.Heaters with upper and lower connecting different position of the heating element.Therefore, the process of heating the water to be effective and manageable, before connecting the device be sure to check his passport, and guidance on the correct fixed position.
2
To ensure reliable fastening of the water heater to the wall using special brackets.This is very important because in addition to the weight of the device support will affect the weight of water.
3
Remember, the higher you set the boiler, the better.Use for connection to metal, plastic or polypropylene tubes.In order tube life turned out to be long-lived, set the filter cleaning.The tank water heater can break from the excess pressure that did not happen, consider the drain valve, through which the excess will be removed in the process of expanding water heating.
4
To install the flow heater, use a cable PVA 3x4 that can withstand loads of up to 9.2 kW at a voltage of 220 V. The choice of paying due attention to the automatic fuse.When the heater power not exceeding 5 kW, give preference to machine with a current value of 32 A. With more power, set the device up to 40 A.
5
When mounting the device that does not contain water, therefore, islightweight, does not require the use of special fasteners.
6
used when installing the heater rigid or flexible wiring.The first method is more time-consuming, but it is more reliable.The bathroom instantaneous water heater is connected to the mixer via a hose from the shower.If the model is equipped with an automatic valve which allows the hot water in the bathroom and the kitchen, use a rigid layout.
Note
brackets in the wall should be fixed very firmly, otherwise when filling the tank with water it can be broken.Grounding avoid electric shock, be reliable.
Helpful Hint
water heater to save energy should always be included.
