The MULTIflow thermal store provided the homeowner with the perfect replacement solution for an original Gledhill Torrent Multifuelstore.
Following an enquiry through our online cylinder store, with the homeowner looking for a more efficient solution to replace a leaking unit, Prism Property Maintenance were able to run through the options available as a suitable replacement.
The homeowner within a multi occupancy development was researching the suitable replacement for his Torrent Multifuelstore unit. Although there were additional tappings on the current unit for solid fuel, open vented boiler and central heating, the unit itself only provided mains pressure hot water to the property. using two immersion heaters as the sole heat source.
Having initially requested a price to supply and install an ELSOflow product, our technical team spoke to the homeowner to understand their requirements. As the existing unit provided mains pressure hot water, to ensure there was no reduction in performance, we advised that there was a choice of products to meet their requirements, dependent on the space they had available.
Prism Property Maintenance, who are thermal store installation specialists, spoke with the homeowner and attended the property a few days later to review the options. With the available space, a 180 litre MULTIflow OV unit was specified, which would provide ample hot water for the two bedroom apartment, but occupy less space than the current unit.
The cost effective solution was installed, but as part of the installation, the exposed pipework outside of the unit was fully insulated to ensure maximum efficiency. An improvement on the old installation was that all the electrical connections and associated direct pipework was behind the front panel, which was a major safety benefit especially as there were children living in the property.

“The MULTIflow Thermal Store manufactured by McDonald Water Storage provided a perfect solution with minimal disruption to the homeowner. The original unit was multi purpose but over specified for the application, so the MULTiflow provided a cost effective solution”.
“With the old unit leaking, it was critical that the replacement want sourced and installed quickly. So with McDonald Water Storage able to deliver the unit within a couple of days, the install was able to be completed within a week of the survey being carried out, which was much appreciated by the homeowner”.
