Rated 5 out of 5Â by Edgar Titanium immersion
I bought this as I am in a semi hard water area, once you can undo the old immersion fitting the new one is simple.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Andy38 Thermostat broke at 6 months
Gave this particular immersion heater a go as it is specifically for hard water. After 6 months of intermittent use the thermostat started tripping the reset switch.
Went to Screwfix, was advised to buy a new one, fit that and bring the old one back in for a no quibble refund.
Bought a new one and as a test put that thermostat into the existing immersion heater and it worked fine over a test period of a few days - so definately a thermostat problem and nothing wrong with the element.
Anyway, I took out the old one, installed the new one and its up and running fine.
Took the old one back to Screwfix and was duly refunded.
The one I took back had only a slight build up of calcium on it from six months, I estimate this immersion heater should give good service for a few years (the thermostat notwithstanding); and if I get three or more years out of it, then I'll buy the same again.

This is recommended for hard water areas so I am hopeful it will last longer than its predecessors which have lasted 10 years each. The feel of the product is badly let down by the cover which does not fit unless manipulated into place, poor initial tooling is to blame. Also some penny pinching on the terminals, particularly the earth terminal. So for almost no additional cost the product could have come across much better. The seal supplied with the product sealed the tank to my hand tight so in that respect it was excellent. The fitting instructions ok for a pro could be a lot better for DIY.
In conclusion, this could have been a 5 star product with just a little more thought from the manufacturer and virtually no additional cost.
Only time will tell if it lasts longer than the Incoloy one it replaced.
