Rinnai recently stepped in to ensure a recent BBC ‘Countryfile’ event in the grounds of Blenheim Palace had a plentiful supply of hot water for its catering outlets using Infinity continuous-flow water heaters. John Webster, managing director of Prestek Services, is experienced in providing water for outdoor events at Blenheim Palace and was called in to provide hot water to the various catering operations dotted around the grounds.

He explains that the company has a fleet of hot-water units that can be taken wherever they are needed. ‘I have six Rinnai units running on LPG gas which are configured to a T-stand, linked to the cold-water supply and linked to a sink in the wash-up area. It is an ideal arrangement for a temporary pot-wash area.’

At Blenheim Palace, he sited individual wash-up areas around the show area by linking them to a temporary system of pipework several kilometres long. ‘We simply had to build the network, link pipework and gas cylinders to the boilers, add a sink, and the caterers all had instant hot water.’
