WARNING:
Hot water can cause scalds.
Children, disabled and the
elderly are at greatest risk.
Scalds from hot water can
result in severe injuries to
young children. Feel water
temperature before bathing
or showering. Scalds can
occur when children are
exposed directly to hot
water when they are placed
into a bath that is too hot.
WARNING:
Additional temperature
control or limiting devices
such as tempering valves
may be required to be fitted
to this water heater to meet
regulatory requirements.
Hydrogen warnings
WARNING:
If the hot water heater is not
used for two weeks or more,
a quantity of hydrogen gas,
which is highly flammable,
may accumulate in the water
heater. To dissipate this
safely, it is recommended
that a non-electrically
operated hot tap be turned
on for several minutes at a
sink, or bath, but not at a
dishwasher or other
appliance.
During this procedure there
must be no smoking, open
flame, or any electrical
appliance operating nearby.
If hydrogen gas is
discharged through the tap,
it will probably make a sound
like air escaping.
General safety warnings
This water heater is fitted with a
combination pressure and temperature
PTR relief valve (approved to AS1357),
a thermostat, and a resettable overtemperature cut-out.
▶ It is imperative that all safety devices
are not tampered with as this will void
warranty.
Tronic 1000 T – 6 720 821 421 (2017/10)

Key to symbols and safety instructions
WARNING:
Do not operate this water
heater unless all safety
devices are fitted and
functioning normally.
CAUTION:
Failure to operate the relief
valve easing gear at least
once every six months may
result in product fault.
It is important that the
easing gear on the valve be
raised and lowered very
gently.
Failure to do so may result in
the water heater cylinder
failing, or faulting under
certain circumstances.
WARNING:
Relief valves should be
checked and replaced at
regular intervals not
exceeding 5 years, and
more frequently in areas
subject to poor water
quality.Checking should
include operation of the
relief valve to remove any
lime deposits.
6
For your safety:
WARNING:
It is normal that small
quantities of water (up to 15
litres of water in a 24 hour
period) are released by the
valve during the heating
cycle.Continuous leakage of
water from the valve may
indicate a problem with the
water heater.
If the valve does not
discharge water when the
easing gear is operated , or
does not seal again, a
service call should be made
without delay.
The PTR valve is not
serviceable.
CAUTION:
The activation of the thermal
cut-out indicates a possibly
dangerous situation.
▶ Do not reset the thermal
cut-out until the water
heater has been serviced
by a qualified person.

Features and general information
Your storage electric water heater consists of a vitreous enamel
lined steel cylinder, an internally adjustable thermostat,
a pre-painted zinc-coated steel shell or exterior, an immersion
type element, a sacrificial anode, and a PTR safety valve.
Water is stored within the steel inner tank and is heated to the
thermostat set temperature by the element. The PTR valve
ensures water pressure and temperature does not exceed safe
limits during the heating cycle. As the water is drawn off in
normal every-day use, the thermostat will monitor the tank
temperature and activate the element to ensure hot water is
available.
The thermostat is factory set at 65°C and is
adjustable from 50°C to 70°C by an
authorised person.
The tank is a mains pressure tank. It is designed to supply water
at mains pressure (above 350kPa).
If the maximum cold water pressure exceeds 680kPa, a
pressure limiting valve must be fitted.
The sacrificial anode in your water heater (located at the top of
the water heater) will slowly erode to protect the cylinder.
Tronic 1000 T – 6 720 821 421 (2017/10)
Bosch recommends that the anode be
inspected and replaced every five years or
more frequently in poor water quality areas.
Water heater life expectancy is dependent on a number of
factors including water heater usage patterns, water quality
and water pressure.
NOTICE: Please refer to the Water Quality
Statement on Page 21, and the Warranty
Details on page 22.
Water Quality
This water heater has been designed and constructed to be
suitable for connection to most water supplies in Australia and
New Zealand. However, in areas where Total Dissolved Solids
(TDS) exceeds 2500mg/L, detrimental effects on water heater
performance and longevity will result.
Anode
Should your water supply have a TDS of greater than 600mg/L,
the installed anode must be aluminium (blue) or hydrogen gas
can accumulate at the top of the water heater in long periods of
no use. When this is likely to occur, the installer should instruct
9
Appliance details
the householder on how to dissipate the gas safely. This
process is explained under “Hydrogen warning” on page 4. Any
change of anode must be carried out by an authorised service
person.
Corrosive Water
Water deemed to be corrosive can attack copper parts causing
them to fail. When the water supply Saturation Index (check
with your local water supplier for additional information) is less
than -1.0, water is deemed corrosive and a corrosion resistant
heating element should be used. When the Saturation Index is
greater than +0.40, an expansion control valve must be fitted
on the cold water line after the non-return valve. Should the
Saturation Index exceed +0.80, a low-watts density heating
element should be fitted by an authorised person.
When an ECV is required to be fitted, a small amount of water
may be discharged during the heating cycle rather than the PTR
valve.
IMPORTANT: Where fitted, gently operate the easing lever on
the ECV every six months and replace at intervals not
exceeding 5 years, or more frequently in areas with poor
quality water.
Please refer to the Water Quality Statement on Page 21, and
the Warranty Details on page 22.
Switching off the appliance
If you intend to not use the water heater for only a few days, we
suggest you leave it switched on. If the water heater is to be
switched off, the switch is generally marked and located in the
circuit board or next to the appliance. When the water heater
switch is turned back on, it may take several hours before
sufficient hot water becomes available.
Tariffs
In some regions Off-Peak Tariffs may be available for water
heaters. In these regions water heaters greater than 160L are
suitable for connection to either Continuous or Off-Peak
Tariffs. Where the household requirements for hot water
exceeds the water heater storage capacity, Continuous Tariff is
required. Where hot water demand is less than water heater
capacity, Off-Peak Tariffs may be applicable. Note that OffPeak tariff vary from region to region, however are generally
less expensive than Continuous Tariff rates (subject to local
regulations).

and must be installed in the tank port marked for this purpose.
No valve or accessory of any type should be installed between
the relief valve and the tank. Please observe local codes for the
correct installation of relief valve drains.
WARNING:
The pressure rating of the PTR valve must
not exceed 850 kPa. The maximum supply
pressure of the water heater is marked on
the rating plate
The PTR valve thread is RP ½ " / 15mm BSP.
▶ Ensure the valve probe is straight and undamaged.
▶ Carefully apply Teflon tape to the valve, ensuring that the
tape does not extend past the end of the thread.
▶ The drainpipe must be fitted to the relief valve to carry
discharge safely away from the water heater (see AS/
NZS3500.4).

Electrical connection
NOTICE:
This drain pipe must fall continuously, shall
be left open to the atmosphere, and shall be
in a frost free environment
WARNING:
Relief valve easing gear should be checked
and operated AT LEAST ONCE EVERY SIX
MONTHS.
If water does not discharge freely when the
lever is operated, the valve should be
checked by an authorised agent.
WARNING:
The relief valve and relief valve drain pipe
must not be sealed or blocked. Small
amounts of water may leak from the relief
valve during heating cycles.
WARNING:
Relief valves should be replaced at intervals
not exceeding 5years, or more frequently in
areas where water quality is poor
WARNING:
The function of the PTR valve is to discharge
high temperature water under certain
conditions. Therefore it is strongly
recommended that the pipe work connected
to the PTR valve is able to withstand water
temperatures exceeding 99 °C. Failure to
follow this recommendation may result in a
dangerous situation
Connect the outlet of the PTR valve to a suitable open drain so
that the discharge water cannot contact any electrical parts,
persons or animals, and to eliminate any other possible risks.
The drain line from the PTR valve must comply with the
requirements of AS/NZS 3500.4.
Always use a PTR valve of the same rated pressure and
temperature as the PTR Valve supplied with the unit.

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.
This water heater has been designed and constructed to be
suitable for connection to most water supplies in Australia and
New Zealand. However, in areas where Total Dissolved Solids
(TDS) exceeds 2500mg/L, detrimental effects on water heater
performance and longevity will result.
While Bosch water heaters are warranted against
manufacturing 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 acceptable standard.
The water quality limits/parameters listed in the water quality
table (table 6, page 22) are considered acceptable, and
generally Australian and New Zealand suburban water supplies
fall within these limits/parameters.
Where uncertainty exists concerning water quality, intending
appliance users should seek a water analysis from the water
supplying authority. 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.
Anode
Should your water supply have a TDS of greater than 600mg/L,
the installed anode must be the “blue” one (aluminium) or
hydrogen gas can accumulate at the top of the water heater in
long periods of no use. When this is likely to occur, the installer
should instruct the householder on how to dissipate the gas
safely. This process is explained on the previous page under
Tronic 1000 T – 6 720 821 421 (2017/10)
21
Environmental protection/Recycling
“Safety”. The change of anode must be done by a plumber or
authorised service person.
Corrosive Water
Water deemed to be corrosive can attack parts causing them to
fail. When the water supply Saturation Index (check with your
local water supplier for additional information) is less than 1.0, water is deemed corrosive and a corrosion resistant
heating element should be used. The effect of scaling water is
the build up of calcium carbonate onto hot metallic surfaces.
When the Saturation Index is greater than +0.40, an expansion
control valve must be fitted on the cold water line after the nonreturn valve. Should the Saturation Index exceed +0.80, a lowwatts density heating element should be fitted to your water
heater by your local Bosch authorised service agent.
