Electric hot water tank (boiler)

Post by mo1 » Mon Feb 06, 2017 8:44 pm

I bought and installed 150 L outdoor tank two years ago from Mazuma which ceased some 5 weeks ago, I have been trying to get them come and fix the problem however many excuses but no show, I have decided to buy a new one (other than mazuma)but cant find any.
Does anyone know of any other company that sell and service similar tank? I have tried to find some online but no success
I will appreciate any information from housing developers or someone who installed one.
many thanks

You might look at the Instant Hot Water Heaters. I have seen some large enough for whole house use. No need to keep a tank of water hot all the time. I have instant hot water heaters at my three bathrooms and kitchen and they supply hot water to both shower and sinks. One larger one that could supply whole house should serve your purpose well.

I have 4 Stiebel Eltron water heaters in my apartment in BKK that are now 12 years old and work perfectly. I have another 4 more modern Stiebel units in my home in HH and they also have been trouble free for over 6 years. I can thoroughly recommend them although they are more pricy than most of the other brands

Had the same problem with a Sharp WH-33.
Turned out that the steel component holding the white cables and screwed onto the copper flange needed replacing. Bought this in HH for 160 baht and it's working perfectly again.

Oops sorry, Have you been to Home Pro or better still Thai Watsuda I am sure they will have but then you will have to install yourself or find a plumber.

Yes exactly! That being the reason that I have not commented. Stiebel make a 30 litre storage tank, but it may not be big enough, or you could connect two in series. If you do that keep the thermostat on the second one lower than the first one and most of the time only one will be heating.
