Portable Emergency Hot Water System

The WHEELIflow is an electrically heated hot water store, providing emergency hot water for a property either during planned maintenance work or where the original hot water source has failed.

This copper lined offering has unique microbial properties for prevention against legionella. The store of water has 50mm insulation and is heated via a  3kW immersion heater, which is prefitted with 3 metres of cable and a plug. The immersion is factory set to 65 – 70 degrees centigrade.

Being open vented it is inherently safe, and therefore does not require any discharge pipework associated with unvented cylinders.
