Installation

Answer the questions below to find a recommended installation for your application:

Counter-top or Wall-mounting?

Counter-top boilers tend to cost a little less and are easier to install (the 3kW models use a 13 amp plug so you don't need a qualified Electrician to wire them to a fused spur connection.) The down-side is that they take up valuable counter space and are less flexible in use. Bear in mind that a larger model may be needed (in both volume and height) if you plan to fill large urns or flasks.
 

 

Counter-top: How will the vent / overflow be extended?

It is important to extend the vent / overflow to a safe and visible point of discharge, just as you would with a sink or bath. If the boiler is to be positioned near to a sink, this often provides an easy option. Alternatives include plumbing to a waste pipe via a tundish. Counter-top models can be easily reconfigured to vent into a spill tray, which should be plumbed to a waste.
