CAN YOU UPGRADE THE PRESSURE OF YOUR OLD LOW PRESSURE HOT WATER CYLINDER BY FITTING NEW PRESSURE VALVES?
The answer in most case is yes, however be aware that this will be only a slight improvement and can reduce the life of your old Low Pressure Hot Water Cylinder.
Traditionally, a low pressure hot water cylinder was an open-vented system providing hot water supply for most homes in Auckland, New Zealand. They are reliable and provide hot water as you’d expect, however only with limited pressure.
Today many people have the expectation of a great strong high pressure shower, rather than the old school bath with some kind of awkward shower facility over it, so the reality is low pressure hot water cylinders have become a lot less desirable.
ARE LOW PRESSURE HOT WATER CYLINDERS STILL INSTALLED IN AUCKLAND?
Regardless of peoples expectations for high pressure showers, a greater abundance of hot water, and good pressure at the kitchen sink, we still install many low pressure hot water cylinders.
Homes of lower value, rental properties, business premises, and farm buildings, are all still commonly low pressure. The reality is often the significantly lower cost appeals to those who do not feel it a requirement to upgrade to a mains pressure hot water cylinder.
RHEEM LOW PRESSURE HOT WATER CYLINDERS
Low Pressure Copper Cylinders are pre-wired to meet New Zealand standards and building code requirements. They come in a number of sizes and shapes.Ranging from 40L – 350L, however by far the most common is the 135L model. Traditionally the very old Low Pressure Hot Water Cylinders were known in most cases as 30 and 40 gallon cylinders (being 135L and 180L). Popular models offer three inlets for flexible installation. The copper cylinders are rated for a maximum of 76kPa water pressure.
This means that there is no way you can get real good pressure out of them.
Today we plumb most homes hot water systems to 500kPa. Over 6 times the pressure of the old low pressure hot water systems.
