3. You MUST have a safe tray installed!
Indoor hot water services must be installed on a safe tray with a drain outlet or terminator valve.
A safe tray is a crucial tool that protects your home from flooding and water damage in the case of a leaking or burst hot water service. If you have an existing indoor hot water service without a safe tray we recommend that you have one fitted ASAP! Or, you can choose to instead have an external hot water service installed.
4. Get the right advice from the pros
Changing your storage hot water service for an instantaneous hot water service is generally more involved than most people think.
More often than not, your gas line needs to be upgraded to a larger diameter pipe when changing from a storage hot water service to an instant hot water service. This is because the gas supply demand on an instant hot water unit can be up to five or six times greater than that of a storage type unit.
Although instant hot water units are generally cheaper to run, the additional costs of a gas line upgrade must be considered.
