Never Run Out Of Hot Water
Water is heated using a burner and exchange system, ensuring a constant, reliable temperature for immediate use.
What is continuous flow hot water?
A continuous flow hot water system is the process of delivering a continuous flow of hot water at a consistent temperature, without the need for storage tanks. Continuous flow will only ever utilise energy for whenever heat is needed. I.e. using a shower. With the most advanced systems the user will be able to set the desired temperature, so vulnerable users such as children and the elderly can be safeguarded.
Continuous flow technology can be the most efficient method of supplying hot water when used as a standalone system or when used in conjunction with different forms of renewable technology.
How does it work?
Cold water is fed into the system by the standard water inlet, when a hot tap is opened and the water starts to flow, a burner is immediately ignited and subsequently heats up the cold water passing through the exchanger.
The heating of the water happens instantly and delivers a constant flowat the desired pre determined temperature. The ignition process is electronic, thus there is no need for a standing pilot light. Energy is only consumed when hot water is needed.
Advanced systems can deliver hot water within +/- one degree of set point. As there is very little or no storage of water within the appliance and therefore energy loss is near zero, when compared with other hot water storage systems.
Continuous flow systems are powered by NG or LPG which are amongst the most efficient forms of energy available.
Which continuous flow hot water system is right for me?
Continuous flow water heaters can vary in capacity and application.
Most water heaters are mounted internally with a flue or externally without a flue. Capacities range from that required for residential applications, light commercial application through to commercial and industrial installations, in either single or modular unit arrangements.
The capacity of any hot water system is determined by the number of hot water outlets and usage.

Proper water treatment is an absolute necessity!
Unless your boiler receives water of proper quality, the boiler's life will be needlessly shortened.
General Information on Water Treatment and Why it Matters
Water Hardness is the measure of calcium and magnesium content as calcium carbonate equivalents. Water Hardness is the primary source of scale in boiler equipment.
Silica in boiler feedwater can also cause hard dense scale with a high resistance to heat transfer.
Alkalinity is a measure of the capacity of water to neutralize strong acid. In natural waters, the capacity is attributable to bases, such as bicarbonates, carbonates, and hydroxides; as well as silicates, borates, ammonia, phosphates, and organic bases. These bases, especially bicarbonates and carbonates, break down to form carbon dioxide in steam, which is a major factor in the corrosion of condensate lines. Alkalinity also contributes to foaming and carryover in boilers.
