Hot water, hot water, everywhere

The versatility of Rinnai’s range of gas-fired continuous-flow water heats is demonstrated by a variety of projects that includes hotels, a leisure park and — wait for it — a horse washer. There is no need to store hot water, and digital temperature control ensures the temperature of delivered water does not vary as outlets are tuned on and off. For safety, the water is cut off should the temperature rise by 3 K above the chosen set point.
