Electric Water Heaters

Mains Pressure Electric Water Heaters

Designed and manufactured to meet New Zealand's energy performance standards, Rheem mains pressure electric water heaters (hot water cylinders) are top performers under a wide range of water pressures and conditions. Models are rated at a maximum of 1000 kPA water pressures respectively (depending on the model). They not only operate on mains pressure but are also suitable for unequal or equal low pressure uses. The electric storage water heater (hot water cylinder) can deliver more than 40 litres of hot water a minute, enough to meet the needs of most households. Due to their insulation qualities, the optimum water temperature is maintained longer, saving energy and ultimately saving on your water heating account.

Low Pressure Vitreous Enamel

The new Rheem Low Pressure VE cylinders offer exciting new features and benefits for plumbers, home owners, landlords and property managers. This proven and trusted VE technology suits a wider range of water conditions, ideal for many areas where copper or stainless steel is unsuitable.

What's more these water heaters are rated for a maximum "Heavy head" (120kPa) so you'll have better shower  pressure when you replace your existing low pressure copper water heater*.With all popular-sized models, Rheem offers three inlets from which to choose from - bottom, left hand or right hand sides. Simply connect existing or new plumbing to the appropriate inlet.

*Please discuss with your installer if any valve replacements or adjustments are required.
