Rated 5 out of 5 by from Galaxy Instant hot water Really impressed with ease of install and how effective such a small unit could be. Ideal in those circumstances where a full blown boiler water heater would be impractical. If drawing small , infrequent quantities of piping hot water is what's required, then this is well worth considering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable This is the second unit I have fitted. The first one is still working well 2 years later. Easy installation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I've had nothing but problems I have had nothing but problems with this heater. Constantly cutting out even when turning tap on fully, as stated in the manual. Galaxy helpdesk had no constructive suggestions. One of the first things the helpdesk said to me was that the warranty was not valid because I was using a valve tap. Makes me think they get a lot of complaints. I thought all taps were valves. Anyway, buy at your peril.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water heater Installed this water heater in the last few days, easy to install and set up for super hot water. The manufacturer stated it is not suitable for a kitchen but the one I have fitted is supplying hot water to my bathroom basin and kitchen sink, both are within 4 metres of each other. Make sure it is set up as stated in the users manual, a great piece of kit.

Fitted this heater 3 weeks ago and have had 2 plastic pipes burst in the last 3 days, one one the Cold supply side and one on the hot side of heater. Any ideas why?

Will it work with Ultra Commercial Solo Spray Mixer Tap - CD311

Will it work with a single mixer tap? (Orchard Derwent cloakroom basin mixer tap )

The Powerstream units are designed to supply warm water to spray taps only.

Does this need a dedicated power supply or fused spur, or can it plug into a regular 3-pin socket?

Asked by: DavidB1964
This is a 9.5KW unit which means that it requires 41 amps of current at 230 Volts. Which is way above the rating of a standard 13 Amp plug. This unit would need to be installed by a competent electrician and on its own circuit with a cable size in the region of 10mm CSA, however this is dependent on the method of the cables installation " surface, underfloor, under insulation" etc. and could require a cable size of up to 16mm. This is not for the DIY people as a miscalculation of the cable size could easily result in a fire. Hope this information helps, I have been an electrical engineer for the past 37 years.

Shower Mixer

Can this unit be used with any shower mixer or does it need specific brand/type please? Similarly, can it be used with any basin mixer tap? Thank you, Mike.
