    if you have an open vent on boiler (all the top is showing) you need an adapter to fit flue. if its circular at the top just fit a flue.

    Best to visit caravaning/camping sites

    what flow rate on controller do you use now?

    I had to set to 50 to use one of these (my other ignites at 25)

    I was using minibore as plumbing in old van though so 1/2inch might make it light earlier.
    and when i was reinstalling found the fuse had perished a little so having to set higher flow rates to get the power from pump (changed fuse problem solved in new van)

    there very good quality though, sold mine on for 100 wish i hadn`t as thinking of trying again with new plumbing.

    Thanks for the info....Rinnai are made in Japan so seems a much higher quality built product unlike the chepo china made ones.

    I'm using a digital flow controler set to about 25 - 30 for regular cold cleans. However I still use my old L5 as a portable when reqired that I either hang on the open back door of the van or mount on a tripod for really grubby conservatories, guttering, cladding etc deep cleans at a higher flow rate. That way I have the option to connect the water heater to a outside tap if I don't need to use pure from my van tank.

    Someone did mention that the Rinnai 58e is the same gas water heater used under the hood of a well known franchise system.

    I see surecleansystems in this vid are selling rinnai hot water systems now too for £899 + vat Includes fitting and gas certifigate for insurance. :rolleyes:

    My question is would you watn to drink the water without chlorine and other things put in water to kill off bugs etc (legionnaires disease etc)
    Sure this could find its way into untreated pipes and tank? (maybe not)
