Unvented

The POWERflow, copper unvented hot water cylinder is built to deliver superior mains pressure simultaneously for showers, sinks and wash hand basins. It has revolutionised new build and refurbishment schemes, bringing greater flexibility, increased cost effectiveness and much improved performance.

While the pressure in traditional open vented hot water systems was provided by the head of water from the cold feed cistern, with the POWERflow it comes direct from the cold mains supply.

The POWERflow Unvented Hot Water Cylinder offers

  • Proven Reliability
  • Reduced installation costs
  • Can be fitted to utilise sustainable energy - high efficiency solar, ground or air source heat pump coils
  • Increased surface area coils for heat pumps, mean the best utilisation of lower temperature heat pump input
  • Improved shower performance

By using compression fittings and pre-piping the discharge valves, POWERflow is the easiest unvented hot water unit to install and by having an external expansion vessel, is much easier to service and maintain.
