Heater Installation

 

SAFETY PRECAUTION

This sign warns of serious injury, damage to property and potential death. Before operating, please read the following “Safety Precautions” carefully.

 

 

IMPORTANT

·         Installation should be carried out by qualified personnel with close reference to the instruction manual and compliance to the local authority.

·         All plumbing works must be completed and heater tank fully filled with water before proceeding to electrical connections. This will prevent any damage to the heating element and thermal fuse.

·         This appliance must be installed indoor only.

·         Do not use ABS or PVC plastic pipes for the inlet and outlet connections. Use only recommended stainless steel, copper or polymer pipe which can withstand high temperature and pressure.

·         Do not install in area where the water supply exceed 20mg/litre (20ppm) of chloride as this cause corrosion to the stainless steel heater tank and void the warranty.

 

 

1.     Select a suitable location for convenience of water and electrical supply as well as easier for future maintenance. Make sure the location is free from water splash.

2.     In case the water supply is from the water tank, the water heater should be connected to a booster pump (minimum 0.15 MPa / 1.5 bar), in order to have sufficient hot water flow.

3.    For Horizontal Model (JH)

3.1 Remove screw X and Y from the heater and position the mounting rings to the desired mounting

position, according to the type of mounting position required (Refer figure A).

3.2 Mark and drill 4 holes (Ř11mm X 60mm) with dimension C and F (Refer figure C).

3.3 Insert the expansion bolts firmly to the holes and remove the hex nuts and washers.

3.4 Mount the mounting rings in position to the expansion bolts.

 

CAUTION

 

Ensure the inlet pipe is at the lower position (Refer figure A).

 

 

3.5 Securely fasten the washers and hex nuts. Reinstall screw X and Y.

4.    For Vertical Model (JVA)

4.1 Mark and drill 2 holes (Ř11mm X 60mm) with dimension C and F (Refer figure C).

4.2 Insert the expansion bolts firmly to the holes and remove the hex nuts and washers.

4.3 Mount the mounting bracket in position to the expansion bolts.

 

CAUTION

 

This appliance is designed for vertical mounting to the wall only.

 

 

4.4 Securely fasten the washers and hex nuts.

5.    For Horizontal Model (JHT)

5.1 Refer to figure B, mark and drill 2 holes (ř11mm x 60mm depth) on the wall.

5.2 Insert the expansion bolts firmly into the holes and remove the hex nuts and washers.

5.3 Fix the wall bracket to the expansion bolts and securely fasten the washers and hex nuts.

5.4 Carefully hang the mounting bracket of the heater to the wall bracket on the wall.

Plumbing Connection

 

 

1.     Install 1 or 2 unit of check valve to ˝” BSP connection at end of pressure relief valve (With blue cap).

 

CAUTION

 

·         The position of the check valve(s) must not be too close to the pressure relief valve. A length of 500mm is good for thermal expansion.

·         The pressure relief valve is for protection against excessive pressure in the heater tank and must not be removed or replaced. When the heating element operates, it is normal for water to drip from the drain valve.

 

 

2.     Connect cold water supply line to the check valve.

3.     Connect hot water line to the outlet pipe (With red cap).

4.     Connect a 15mm (1/2”) diameter copper tube (maximum length 9 metres) to the drain valve end, leading downward to a drain that is open to the atmosphere and in a frost-free ambient, so that in the event of excessive pressure in the storage tank, the flow of water will not cause damage to the surroundings or critical areas of the building.

 

CAUTION

 

Drain valve must not be closed or blocked which may cause serious damage to the heater tank and void the warranty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A.    Cold Water Inlet from Main Supply / Water Tank

B.    Control Valve (Not Included)

C.    Single or Double Check Valve (Not Included)

D.    Pressure Relief Valve

 

 

E.    Drain Valve (Must Not Be Closed / Blocked)

F.    Overflow Pipe to Drain or Floor Trap

G.    Hot Water Outlet to Mixer Tap

 

TO FILL HEATER TANK

1.     Open control valve in cold water supply line and all hot water faucets to allow trapped air to be vented out from the heater tank and piping.

2.     Allow the heater tank to completely fill with water as indicated by a steady flow of water from the hot water faucets without switching on the electrical supply.

3.     Turn off all hot water faucets. Check all pipe connections to ensure that they are properly sealed against leakage.

 

 

 

Electrical Connection

 

 

IMPORTANT

·         All plumbing works must be completed and heater tank filled with water before proceeding to electrical connections. This will prevent any damage to the appliance.

·         Ensure that the electrical supply is single-phase at 220 to 240 Va.c.

·         This appliance must be permanently earthed. The use of Plug & Socket is not recommended.

·         It is recommended to install an approved current operated type Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker (ELCB) or Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) of 10mA sensitivity and higher than rated current (Refer to table).

·         It is recommended to install an approved type Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) or Molded Case Circuit Breaker (MCCB) of higher than appliance rated current (Refer to table).

·         Ensure that the wiring can supply the necessary amperage (Refer to table).

·         This appliance must be permanently connected to the electrical supply through a Double Pole Linked Switch above rated current (Refer to table) and having contact separation of at least 3mm in all poles incorporated in the fixed wiring. The switch must be out of reach from user in the bathroom.

·         Do not share the electrical supply with other appliances.

Operating Procedure

 

 

IMPORTANT

·         Make sure the heater tank is filled with water before switching on the electrical supply. Failure to do so will damage the appliance and void the warranty.

·         This appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.

·         Do not switch on if there is a possibility that the water in the heater is frozen.

·         To avoid the danger of scalding when operating this appliance, always turn on the cold water faucet first and then adjust the hot water faucet to get the desired water temperature.

 

 

The first operation and heating of the appliance must be observed by the installing technician after water and electrical connection have been made and heater tank filled with water, before switching on the electrical supply.
