I had one fitted in Jan. this year by Ersem trading. The full cost, including pump and cabinet was 1250tl. The heater on it's own was about 600tl. There were cheaper ones in Arcelic but the staff knew nothing about them. (they couldn't quote a fitted price, "depends on how much cable it takes" they said???)

Happy enough with it, instant hot water on cold mornings. The only thing I can't understand is why they wouldn't connect to the hot water tank. I have to switch between the two, solar or gas. The gas system draws water direct from the cold tank. I checked with an English plumber and he says that is normal here.

Have had mine for the last two years and can not fault it. It is fitted to the hot water supply from the hot tank on the roof and only cuts in when the hot water (from the solar panels) has gone below the temp set on the gas heater.



The system works really well but has taken me two years to figure out the best setting to use on the heater so that I use the least gas but still have good hot water. Well worth the money spent and no reason why you could not fit one yourself if you are even a little bit DIY handy. The plumbing is basic after all and only involves four in-line tapes and a couple of sections of pipe. Do not not what the comment about cable length was all about as mine has no cable and is auto start from a set of two D size batteries!

I was given to understand that in order to have one of these gas water heaters, your cold water system must be fully pressurised. I don't mean a hydrofor or a pump either. Also if your bathrooms & kitchen supplie are in different parts of the house which ours all - all miles apart, there would be a problem too. For these reasons we are unable to have a gas water heater installed. I'd love one within reason (cost) & I can't see Brit .plumbers turning work down if it can be done?

Sorry. I got this wrong. Women & plumbing don't sit well together.

Apparently, it's your hot water system that has to be pressurised (not the cold water system). Ours is not & because of the cost involved in changing this we were advised to wait until we need a new hot water tank fitted & do the whole thing then.
