Rinnai delivers the hot water for holiday park

Rinnai, DHW, domestic hot water
Fuelled by LPG and delivering hot water at a preset 43°C, 10 Rinnai continuous-flow water heaters have replaced the previous DHW system at a caravan site in Somerset.

A caravan site near Burnham-On-Sea has replaced its 12-year-old hot-water storage systems with 10 Rinnai Infinity continuous-flow water heaters. Four were installed in each of the ladies and men’s shower blocks and two in the laundry room. Warren Farm offers accommodation for 300 static caravans and 500 pitches for touring vans. It won the ‘Loo of the year’ accolade in 2006 and 5-star awards in 2008 and 2009 for its commitment to providing customers with washroom facilities that are functional, well maintained and clean.

The legionella risk associated with storing water is eliminated. Also, because water temperatures are preset at 43°C, rather than stored at 60°C, there is no need for thermostatic or mixing valves.

The eight units in the shower blocks are linked in a manifold arrangement to deliver a flow of 208 l/min for up to 17 guests at the same time.

Warren Farm has since installed a further eight Infinity water heaters in two more shower blocks. Plans for a brand new facilities building include the installation of 16 more Infinity units.

The heaters for this site use LPG.
