6 Environment / disposal

Environmental protection is a fundamental corporate strategy of the Bosch Group.

The quality of our products, their efficiency and environmental safety are all of equal importance to us and all environmental protection legislation and regulations are strictly observed.

We use the best possible technology and materials for protecting the environment taking into account of economic considerations.

Packaging

We participate in the recycling programmes of the countries in which our products are sold to ensure optimum recycling.

All of our packaging materials are environmentally friendly and can be recycled.

Used appliances

Used appliances contain valuable materials that should be recycled.

The various assemblies can be easily dismantled and synthetic materials are marked accordingly. Assemblies can therefore be sorted by composition and passed on for recycling or disposal.

6 720 813 938 (2016/06) OptiFlow Professional

7 Water quality

All Bosch water heating appliances are constructed from high quality materials and components and all are certified for compliance with relevant parts of Australian and New Zealand gas, electrical and water standards.

Whilst Bosch water heaters are warranted against defects, the warranty is conditional upon correct installation and use, in accordance with detailed instructions provided with the heater. In the case of the water supplied to the heater, it is important that the water quality be of an acceptable standard.

The water quality limits/parameters listed in water quality table are considered acceptable and generally, Australian and New

Zealand suburban water supplies fall within these limits/ parameters.

In areas of Australia and New Zealand where water may be supplied, either fully or partly, from bores, artesian wells or similar, one or more of the important limits may well be exceeded and the heater could, therefore, be at risk of failure.

Where uncertainty exists concerning water quality, intending appliance users should seek a water analysis from the water supplying authority and in cases where it is established that the water supply does not meet the quality requirements of the water quality table, the Bosch warranty would not apply.
