Been on the lookout for something like this for a while to add hot water to the brew-shed. For £38 I thought it's well worth a punt!

Had these fitted and poor flow and slow to heat up, Now use taps with the element built in instant heat and much better/cheaper imho.

Or a pint, Nice!
Ta
useful item, thanks
What's the regular price?
3Kw will be a pathetic trickle of luke warm water. Might as well buy a cheap 7kw shower and alter the hose to suit.

WOW they still make these
I have a immersion boiler that I've not turned on for 4 years. I use showers and dishwasher and just use the kettle for hot water. I wonder if this can be installed in a rented kitchen.
Voting hot on price and brand. In Scotland this product is known as a geyser (pronounced geezer) what do you guys call it?

The wiring requirements might be slightly different.

These work fine for what they are designed for - washing hands.
Great item to pop up on my feed
Got this in warehouse for washing hands where we don’t have boiler. Pretty good but the dial is a bit weird for knowing where to turn to for heat.
£38 is the normal price. No deal here. Cold.

I guess it could be run via 13a plug (standard socket)
We've got this in the downstairs loo:

It does the job where there's no hot water and is a more compact option, but not quite as instant or as warm. Suits us tho.
Was paying this price 12 years ago, and few quid extra for the 7k
A brew-shed!
How quickly can it put out hot water? Could you for example fill up a mop bucket with hot water in one go?

Just what I was thinking. Not seen one for 25 years. They'll still do the job though.
Got a few of these in my workplace for hand washing. And having actually attempted to fill a mop bucket I can tell you it takes ages.
Taking the nozzle off you will only get a trickle of water, but when its on it does give a nice even warm spray for hand washing.

At 3kw don't expect much more from it other than hand washing. Standard kettles are around 3kw and you don't get instant hot water from them either.
Had one of these years ago and it did the job a treat. Heat added just for having a brew shed though

We had one of these for years but recently replaced it for an MX infrared one, still cheap but wave your hand in front of the unit and it powers up to your set temp. Awesome kit

Electric point of use heater. Large homes sometimes have one when you need hot water in a location which is too far from the boiler/main plumbing installation and where lagging a pipe would be inefficient.

Also 3kW isn't much better than a decent kettle; certainly not enough for proper hot flow. But then I suppose he advantage is you don't need a separate spur/circuit as it's within the 13A capacity of a socket, so maybe good for washing your hands in the shed / outside toilet?

They get warm within about 5 secs same heat as the old type on low flow hot getting cooler as you increase the flow of water through the tap They are brilliant as a hand cleaning source.

Thanks for the quick reply! Does the power go under the sink with the pipes or out the back?
Option of both, easiest to Go under with the mount, I use a socket with a trip built in just to be safe.
Would this provide sufficient hot water for cleaning hands ok no a production environment for about 40 staff? Installing one at all the 6 sinks.

Not too sure about that but worth bearing in mind that in the (albeit unlikely) event that all 6 are turned on at once, it could potentially draw 18,000W or 78 amps.
