applicable water heater regulations across the UK, so no matter where you are
you can rest easy knowing it's a safe appliance for your home.

difficulties, and it is always recommended that it be set up by a professional.
Once a licensed professional comes to install your Gledhill StainlessLite Plus
in your home, you will no longer have to make any changes unless you go on a
trip or are away from home for many hours and have to turn off the gas.
This water heater
works wonders, even if your local tap water is hard water (which contains a lot
of minerals that can turn into scale).
It should always be
a licensed professional (and even better if he has experience in the Gledhill
line) who is in charge of installing the device in your home. In this way, you
will ensure that the Gledhill StainlessLite Plus is installed with the
indicated measures and that it complies with all the necessary safety

Common Faults with Gledhill StainlessLite Plus
Like the other
heaters in the Gledhill line, with the Gledhill StainlessLite Plus, you'll have
a loyal heater that rarely fails. Still, there are some common pitfalls, and
knowing them can help you avoid them or fix them as soon as possible.
StainlessLite Plus models that have a water capacity of 210 litres or more may
have the fault of rapid scaling. This will only happen if the water in the area
where you live is loaded with heavy minerals because when the Gledhill
StainlessLite Plus heats the water, some of these minerals can be deposited on
the walls, eventually clogging the pipes of your Gledhill StainlessLite Plus. .
The solution is simple: if you already know that there is hard water in your
area, then make sure that your Gledhill StainlessLite Plus is checked by a
specialist every 6 months to avoid the accumulation of tartar.
On the other hand,
the Gledhill StainlessLite Plus has a primary and a secondary circuit in charge
of regulating the temperature of the water, but if one of them fails, it is
likely that you only have cold water in your house. For the same reason, if you
notice that the temperature of the water in your house dropped, then you should
call a professional to fix it. They are usually problems that are fixed in less
than a day, so there is nothing to worry about.
StainlessLite Plus works automatically after being installed, but it must have
at least one revision a year made by a professional. This is useful for
detecting any failure early and preventing it from becoming a bigger problem.
