in ice water, making the grease removal process difficult.
All these problems are
a thing of the past with the help of the Gledhill StainlessLite. This machine
is a water boiler that works partly on gas and partly on electricity and can
heat and store up to 150 liters of water at a time.
StainlessLite is one of the highest capacities of all the Gledhill's, but its
benefits don't end there. It can be placed outdoors (with certain precautionary
measures), and it is one of the most durable of the entire line.

Introduction to Gledhill StainlessLite
StainlessLite is one of the most popular water boilers on the market, as it
manages to heat a large amount of water. It has a capacity of 150 liters, which
is enough for showering, washing dishes, and much more.
The Gledhill StainlessLite
is recommended for large houses or those where many people live, as it has an
amazing and large water storage. Now if you have a small space it may not be
the best for you, since it takes up a lot of space.
StainlessLite can heat any type of tap water, including hard water. This water
boiler was made with the environment in mind, since the Gledhill StainlessLite
is made of recycled materials, and the Gledhill family invites you to also
choose to recycle it at your local recycling center once its useful life is
While the Gledhill
StainlessLite is self-contained and rarely causes problems, it will require a
regular professional inspection. Do not worry, this does not mean that every
month a professional has to see your Gledhill StainlessLite, but every three
months or six months is the ideal time.
If the quality of
the tap water in your home is good, then the Gledhill StainlessLite check-up
can be done as little as once a year. Always make sure that the inspection is
carried out by a licensed professional with experience in the Gledhill
Common Faults with Gledhill StainlessLite
Like other similar
machines, the Gledhill StainlessLite has several common faults. The fact that
they are common faults does not mean that your Gledhill StainlessLite will have
them, but it may do. An advantage of knowing the most common failures of the
Gledhill StainlessLite is that in case they occur you will be able to know how
to act against the problem.
A common fault is
that the Gledhill StainlessLite is on but the water comes out cold from your
faucets. This is one of the most common problems but also one of the most
annoying since it can be due to different reasons. The most common cause is
that the relief valve is stuck, and therefore the Gledhill StainlessLite is
automatically put in cold mode.
If this happens,
only cold water will come out of your Gledhill StainlessLite. This problem can
only be fixed by a professional who has experience with Gledhill StainlessLite.
It can also happen that if the running water is "hard" (with a lot of
minerals), then they form like scale stones that clog the pipes, and these are
one of the most dangerous problems (they occur in any type of water heater)
since it can overheat and cause that the pipes are damaged.
In the case of the
above, the problem is directly caused by the quality of the tap water, so the
only way to solve it is to regularly check and clean the plumbing in your house
and in your Gledhill StainlessLite.

The conclusion to the Gledhill StainlessLite
In short, the
Gledhill StainlessLite is a pretty reliable machine. If you have a large family
or a large house, we recommend that you buy it. You will be able to heat a
large amount of water at the same time, and by having such large water storage,
you will hardly even notice the moments when there is no hot water.
The failures of the
Gledhill StainlessLite are similar to those of any water boiler, and perhaps
its biggest disadvantage is that, unlike others, it only works with gas. Still,
it's a small price to pay considering all the benefits Gledhill StainlessLite
has to offer.
Remember that it
should always be installed by a licensed professional, and in the event of any
issues with your Gledhill StainlessLite, you should also call someone who is
trained. When it comes to machines or gas and water pipe issues, you should
never try to fix them yourself, as it is very risky and it isn't worth it.
