Handling Before Installation Stainless Lite must be handled with care and stored the correct way up in a dry place. Any manual handling/lifting operations will need to comply with the requirements of the Manual Handling Operations Regulations issued by the H.S.E. The appliance can be moved using a sack truck on the rear face although care should be taken and the route should be even. In apartment buildings containing a number of storeys we would recommend that the appliances are moved vertically in a mechanical lift. If it is proposed to use a crane, expert advice should be obtained regarding the need for slings, lifting beams etc. A specific manual handling assessment is shown in Appendix B at the rear of this manual. Modifications should not be made to this product. Replacement par ts, including immersion heaters, should be purchased from Gledhill Building Products Limited, or agents approved by them. Unvented hot water storage vessels need regular routine checks, and these are detailed below. It is for this reason that this manual must always be left with the Stainless Lite. It is essential that these checks be carried out at the time of boiler maintenance by a qualified installer: 1. Manually open the relief valves in turn, and check that water is discharged from the valves and runs freely through the tundish and out at the discharge point. Ensure that the valves re-seat satisfactorily. (Note - the water may be very hot). 2. It is important to check that the discharge pipework is carrying the water away adequately. Check for blockages etc. if it is not. 3. Turn the mains water off and remove and clean the strainer element in the Pressure Reducing Valve. 4. Check the charge pressure in the expansion vessel and repressurise if required 5. Re-fill the system and ensure that all relief valves have re-seated. 6. The Benchmark Service Record should be updated at each service. 7. Check the water pressure downstream of the combination valve is bar in static condition. 8. Check and if necessary, descale the heat exchanger in hard water areas ie. above 200ppm (mg/l). Note: The cylinder is factory fitted with a temperature & pressure relief valve that must not be used for any other purpose or removed. The cylinder is factory fitted with immersion heaters with thermal cut outs. Immersions without thermal cut outs must not be fitted.

Page 9 SYSTEM DESIGN Stainless Lite is a range of unvented hot water storage cylinders, manufactured in the latest high quality duplex stainless steel. They are designed to provide mains pressure hot water and are supplied as a package which complies with Section G3 of the Building Regulations. The appliance is extremely well insulated using high density HCFC free foam insulation with an ozone depleting potential (ODP) of zero and a global warming potential (GWP) of 1. It is fitted with all necessary safety devices and supplied with all the necessary control devices to make installation on site as easy as possible. Stainless Lite Heat Pump (HP) SOL models: The Stainless Lite HP SOL is an unvented hot water storage cylinder fitted with two high efficiency internal primary heat exchangers especially designed for use with heat pump systems. These two heat exchangers must be connected in parallel to the heat pump circuit when a solar thermal system is not installed, as shown in the schematic on page 16. When both heat pump and solar thermal systems are installed, the top heat exchanger is connected to the heat pump circuit and the bottom heat exchanger is connected to the solar circuit a shown in figure 2. All Stainless Lite HP SOL models are fitted with 3kW (230Vac, 50Hz) immersion heater for raising the temperature of the stored water to above 60°C after the heat pump heating cycle if necessary. During commissioning the actual temperature that the cylinder reaches when the thermostat(s) operate should be tested and adjusted so that it achieves a minimum of 60°C in order to comply with the Legionella pasteurisation requirements. The technical details of the Stainless Lite HP models are listed in table 1. Important notes: 1. All Stainless Lite HP models are suitable for both open vented and sealed primary systems. 2. When used with a sealed primary heating system, the heat pump must incorporate its own over heat thermostat. 3. Stainless Lite HP models must not be used with solid fuel boilers or steam as the heat source. 4. Heat pumps can normally only heat the domestic hot water to between 45 – 50°C, therefore provision should be made to periodically heat the cylinder to above 60°C to prevent growth of legionella. 5. The cold supply elbow c/w drain tapping must be fitted as shown in figures 1 & 2. A flexible hose can then be connected to the drain tapping and providing the hose runs below the lowest level of the cylinder, then all the water content can be drained out by the symphonic action. Stainless Lite Heat Pump (HP) and Slimline models: The Stainless Lite HP and Slimline cylinders unvented hot water storage cylinders fitted with a high efficiency coil. The coil has a low pressure loss due to it being a multiple pass coil which enable high flow rates to be achieved through it. In addition due to the coil being corrugated the heat transfer rate is higher than that of plain tube coil. The cylinder has been specifically designed for heat pump applications. It incorporates an immersion heater at the base of the unit which enables pasteurisation of the water. This should be done on a regular basis in line with HWA guidance.. The slimline has been designed to enable it to fit into tighter locations. Page 10 INSTALLATION General Design Considerations The cupboard footprint needs to be at least 650mm square for units up to 300 litres, 730mm for 400 litre units. The base chosen for the cylinder should be level and capable of supporting the weight of the unit when full of water as shown in General Data. The discharge pipework for the safety valves must have a minimum fall of 1 : 200 from the unit to a safe discharge point. All exposed pipework and fittings on the cylinder should be insulated, and the unit should NOT be fixed in a location where the contents could freeze. In new systems, pipes should be insulated to comply with building regs, the maximum permissible heat loss is indicated in the table opposite, and labelled accordingly as follows: i. Primary circulation pipes for domestic hot water circuits should be insulated through their length, subject only to practical constraints imposed by the need to penetrate joists and other structural elements. ii. All pipes connected to hot water storage vessels, including the vent pipe, should be insulated for at least 1 metre from their points of connection to the cylinder (or they should be insulated up to the point where they become concealed). The pipe connecting the boiler flow to the appliance must not be less than 22mm copper or equivalent. Insulation of pipework Pipe outside diameter Maximum heat loss 15mm 7.89W/m 22mm 9.12W/m 28mm 10.07W/m 35mm 11.08W/m Further guidance on converting heat loss limits to insulation thickness for specific thermal conductivities is available in TIMSA “HVAC guidance for achieving compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations”. In replacement systems, whenever a boiler or hot water storage vessel is replaced in an existing system, any pipes that are exposed as part of the work or are otherwise accessible should be insulated as recommended for new systems, or to some lesser standard where practical constraints dictate. Mains Water Supply Existing properties with a 15mm supply will be satisfactory provided the local mains pressure is good, but should be confined to single bathroom properties. For new properties where simultaneous demand is required to more than one bathroom or a bathroom and one or more en-suites, the communication and service pipe into the dwelling should be a minimum of 22mm (usually in the form of a 25mm MDPE supply). The optimum performance is achieved if the inlet pressure is 3 bar dynamic. However, the Stainless Lite will function with lower inlet pressures, but this will reduce the performance. There should be a flow of at least 30 litres per minute or above available into the property. Normally Stainless Lite provides well in excess of 40 litres/min in most conditions. Flow rates for ALL mains pressure systems are subject to district pressures and system dynamic loss. Particularly on larger properties with more than one bathroom, the pipe sizes should be calculated in accordance with BS EN 806-3:2006 and BS 8558:2011. Combination Valve I.V. I.V. If two Stainless Lites are coupled together the secondary inlet and outlet pipes must be balanced. The units must be fitted on the same level. Note: No valves must be fitted between the expansion vessel and the storage cylinder(s).

For higher specification, an increase of one model size should be considered. When selecting a solar model, it is important to check the dedicated solar volume shown in table 1 is suitable for the total floor area of the dwelling and/or net area of the solar collectors to ensure compliance with the Building Regulations. When sizing the hot water cylinder, please use MCS guidelines in MIS3005 and also refer to BS EN 806:1-5 AND BS EN 8558. When Stainless Lite HP SOL is connected to both heat pump and solar thermal systems, then during the winter period the solar contribution will be negligible and the heat pump will only heat about 65% of the cylinder volume. This should be taken into account when selecting the model. Please note that the two heat exchangers must be connected in parallel to the heat pump circuit when a solar thermal system is not installed, as shown in the schematic below.

To use, first obtain the maximum flow rate from the heat pump manufacture’s instructions, match this to the flow rates in section 1 and follow this flow rate’s column down through the other sections. Section 2 shows the velocity in the pipe work of different diameters at this flow rate. A maximum flow velocity of 1m/s has been chosen to limit flow noise. Use this section to choose the correct pipe diameter. Page 13 Section 3 shows the maximum operating power of the coils in the cylinder. Shaded squares show the range of operating powers suitable for a cylinder in either of its set ups. Section 4 shows the pressure loss across the coils at this flow rate for all cylinders in both configurations. INSTALLATION INSTALLATION General Restrictions Pipe Layout a. The highest hot or cold water draw off point should not exceed 10 metres above the Pressure Reducing Valve. b. An ascending spray type bidet or any other appliance with a Class 1 back-syphonage risk requiring a type A air gap should not be used. c. Stainless Lite should not be used where steam is the primary heating medium, or in a situation where maintenance is likely to be neglected. d. Unvented cylinders are not suitable for use with solid fuel boilers. e. If the supply to the mixer fittings (other than a dual outlet type) is not taken from the balanced supply the system will become over pressurized and cause the pressure relief valve to discharge. Over time this could also cause the premature failure of the appliance itself which will not be covered by the warranty. f. In larger properties with a number of bathrooms/en-suites and long pipe runs we would recommend that the balance cold supply is provided with its own pressure reducing valve and is not taken from the balanced cold connection on the combination valve. In this case it will also be necessary to fit a small expansion vessel on the balanced cold water system to accommodate the pressure rise caused by the increase in temperature of the balanced cold water. g. Check the performance requirements of the terminal fittings with regard to flow/ pressure are suitable. In all mains pressure installations it is important to remember that the incoming cold supply must be shared between all terminal fittings. It is important that a 22mm supply is brought to the appliance and a 22mm take-off is continued at least to the bath. If there are two baths, 28mm pipework should be considered. One metre of smaller diameter pipework, or flow restrictors, should be provided on the final connection to all outlets so as to balance the water available. In any event the distribution pipework should generally be in accordance with BS EN 806-1 to 5. Shower Fittings Secondary Hot Water Circulation Aerated taps are recommended to prevent splashing. Any type of shower mixing valve can be used as long as both the hot and cold supplies are mains fed. However, all mains pressure systems are subject to dynamic changes particularly when other hot and cold taps/showers are opened and closed, which will cause changes in the water temperature at mixed water outlets such as showers. For this reason and because these are now no more expensive than a manual shower we strongly recommend the use of thermostatic showers with this appliance. These must be used in 3 storey properties where the impact on pressure/temperature of opening another tap in the system is greater than normal. The shower head provided must also be suitable for mains pressure supplies. Some models are fitted with a secondary return tapping as standard (see table 1 for details). If fitted, an extra expansion vessel may be necessary. A non-return valve MUST be FITTED near the return connection. No valve or terminal fitting should be installed between the non return valve and the cylinder. (See schematic arrangement on page 13.) All pipes kept hot by the secondary circulation should be insulated. Plastic Pipework This appliance is suitable for use with plastic pipework as long as the material is recommended for the purpose by the manufacturer and is installed fully in accordance with their recommendations. DHW SH P&T WHB WC ERV/NRV PRV SCV SCV BATH Note: Cold supplies to single taps must be taken from the mains cold water system.

P&T Relief Valve Dotted line showing alternative route with single tundish being used 300 mm min. Discharge below fixed grating 22 mm metal pipe with continuous fall up to 9m equivalent length (D2). NOTES: Fixed Grating The discharge will consist of scalding waterand steam. Asphalt, roofing felt and non-metallic rainwater goods may be damaged by such discharges. It is not acceptable to discharge straight into a soil pipe. Trapped gully Worked Example The example below is for G1/2 temperature relief valve with a discharge pipe (D2) having 4 elbows and length of 7m from the tundish to the point of discharge. From Table 1: Maximum resistance allowed for a straight length of 22mm copper discharge pipe (D2) from a G1/2 temperature relief valve is: 9m subtract the resistance for 4 x 22mm elbows at 0.8m each = 3.2m. Therefore the maximum permitted length equates to: 5.8m. 5.8m is less than the actual length of 7m therefore calculate the next largest size. Maximum resistance allowed for a straight length of 28mm pipe (D2) from a G1/2 temperature relief valve equates to: 14m. As the actual length is 7m, a 28mm (D2) copper pipe will be satisfactory.

However, the information is not exhaustive and reference should always be made to Approved Document G3 of the Building Regulations. The final decision regarding any arrangements rests with Building Control and it is recommended that their advice is sought if you have any concerns regarding this aspect of the installation. The two safety valves will only discharge water under fault conditions. When operating normally water will not be discharged. The tundish should be vertical, located in the same space as the unvented hot water storage system and be fitted as close as possible and within 600mm of the safety device e.g. the temperature relief valve. The discharge pipe (D2) from the tundish should terminate in a safe place where there is no risk to persons in the vicinity of the discharge, be of metal and: a) Be at least one pipe size larger than the nominal outlet size of the safety device unless its total equivalent hydraulic resistance exceeds that of a straight pipe 9m long i.e. discharge pipes between 9m and 18m equivalent resistance length should be at least two sizes larger than the nominal outlet size of the safety device, between 18 and 27m at least 3 sizes larger, and so on. Bends must be taken into account in calculating the flow resistance. Refer to the table and the worked example. An alternative approach for sizing discharge pipes would be to follow BS EN 806-2:2005 Specification for design installation, testing and maintenance of services supplying water for domestic use within buildings and their curtilages. b) Have a vertical section of pipe at least 300mm long, below the tundish before any elbows or bends in the pipe work. c) Be installed with a continuous fall. Page 15 INSTALLATION INSTALLATION d) It is preferable for the discharge to be visible at both the tundish and the final point of discharge but where this is not possible or practically difficult there should be clear visibility at one or other of these locations. Examples of acceptable discharge arrangements are: Hot Outlet Secondary Return Circuit 1. Ideally below the fixed grating and above the water seal in a trapped gulley. P&T Relief Valve 2. Downward discharges at a low level; i.e. up to 100mm above external surfaces such as car parks, hard standings, grassed areas etc are acceptable providing that where children play or otherwise come into contact with discharges, a wire cage or similar guard is positioned to prevent contact whilst maintaining visibility. Tundish Pump Non Return Valve Expansion Vessel To Drain Balanced Cold Outlets Heat Pump Flow ERV NRV PRV 3. Discharges at a high level; e.g. into metal hopper and metal down pipe with the end of the discharge pipe clearly visible (tundish visible or not) or onto a roof capable of withstanding high temperature discharges of water and 3m from any plastic guttering systems that would collect such discharges. 4. Where a single pipe serves a number of discharges, such as in blocks of flats, the number served should be limited to not more than 6 systems so that any installation can be traced reasonably easily. The single common discharge pipe should be at least one pipe size larger than the largest individual discharge pipe to be connected. If unvented hot water storage systems are installed where discharges form safety devices may not be apparent i.e. in dwellings occupied by blind, infirm or disabled people, consideration should be given to the installation of an electronically operated device to warn when discharge takes place.

It is also a Pressure Relief Valve, and is pre-set to 6 bar. Thermostat E L The operation of the boost immersion heater can also be controlled by means of an independent time switch as shown schematically below. The ‘ON’ time settings on the immersion heater should be between 30 - 60 minutes later than the ‘ON’ times set for the hot water programmer channel. For example if the hot water is programmed to come on between 0600 - 0900 and 1700 - 2200 then the immersion heater setting should be 0640 - 0900 and 1740 - 2200. This will give hot water heating by heat pump a priority. N Line Strainer This is integral within the combination inlet group to reduce the likelihood of contaminants fouling the valve seat. Following installation this line strainer must be cleaned and replaced. This needs to be carried out on a regular basis. as part of the annual maintenance/service check. Safety Cut-out Immersion Heater Wiring Immersion Heater Tundish All stainless Lite HP models are fitted with a 3kW immersion heater so that the store temperature can be raised above that which the heat pump provides, to boost the hot water performance if necessary and to protect against legionella eg. once a day or once a week. These are 3kW 240V AC heaters and incorporate a thermostat and a manually reset energy cut-out which operates at 85°C. They have incalloy elements to prolong their life expectancy in aggressive water conditions. External wiring to the immersion heaters must be in accordance with the relevant IEE Wiring Regulations and the circuit must be protected by a suitable fuse and a double pole isolating switch. The correct method of terminating the wiring to the immersion heater is shown above. Usage of the product in non-domestic commercial applications can be extremely intensive and stressful to various components. We recommend that titanium immersion heaters are fitted in such situations, rather than the incoloy heater supplied as standard. Titanium immersion heaters offer superior strength, weight and a smoother finish which enable them to better withstand the extreme stress and temperature fluctuation often encountered within non-domestic environments and situations where water quality is poor – ensuring improved performance and extended operational life. This can be purchased as an extra from your Gledhill depot under code number SH002. This is to allow the discharge from any Relief Valve to be seen. It must be fitted away from any electrical devices. See page 13 for discharge pipework details. Safety The immersion heaters must be earthed and they must be isolated from the mains before the cover is removed on every occasion. Replacement immersion heaters should be obtained from Gledhill Building Products Limited. Control/overheat Dual Thermostats Care must be taken to ensure that the solar probes are fully inserted into the pockets provided.

The heat supply to the cylinder and hence the temperature of the stored water should be controlled as outlined below: - The heat pumps normally operate at lower flow temperatures; typically 45 – 55°C compared with 75 – 80°C for the boilers. Therefore if traditional radiators are used then, these should be oversized in accordance with the heat pump manufacturers recommendations. • Heat supply from the primary heat source i.e. heat For optimum efficiency (i.e. COP of a heat pump), low temperature under floor heating system should be considered. The heat pumps normally operate at lower temperature difference between flow and return compared with the traditional boilers and therefore when sizing the pipework heat pump manufacturers recommendations should be taken into account. Safety Stainless Lite HP is fitted with a combined temperature and pressure relief valve to cope with any increase in temperature and pressure in the cylinder above the design limits, when used with heat sources up to 45kW total output. This is the maximum heat input to the cylinder allowed by section G3 of the ‘Approved Document G’ of the Building Regulations. INSTALLATION Page 18 The 2-port spring return motorised valve supplied should be fitted adjacent to the unit and controlled by the cylinder thermostat (combined control and overheat thermostat) supplied with the unit. The motorised valve and the thermostat must be wired so that the motorised valve switches off when either the control thermostat contact breaks when the set temperature is reached or the overheat thermostat contacts break when an overheat condition develops. The operation of the heat source should be controlled via the auxiliary switch of the motorised valve. It is important to follow the wiring diagrams in the wiring section of these instructions. INSTALLATION • Sealed heating system when required, in the same way as an open vented system fitted with an F&E cistern. A heat pump selected must be suitable for use in a sealed heating system which may have working pressure of up to 3.0bar and it must be fitted with an overheat temperature cut-out device. Unvented (i.e. sealed primary circuits may be filled or replenished by means of a temporary connection between the circuit and a water supply pipe provided a WRC ‘Listed’ double check valve and filling loop or some other no less effective backflow prevention device is permanently connected at the inlet to the circuit and the temporary connection is removed after use. Alternatively, a CA device can be used which will allow the system to be permanently connected to the cold mains supply. The primary system can then be topped up, • Open vented heating system It is essential that the primary circuit between the boiler and the Stainless Lite is pumped and that the cold feed and open vent connections are positioned to prevent pump over into the feed and expansion cistern and to ensure that the open vent is correctly sized. A typical arrangement of the open vented system is shown in diagram opposite. Stainless Lite HP system configuration with solar thermal heating system PRV Expansion vessel Central heating zone valve Solar pumping station Hot water zone valve System pump Heat pump Solar circuit zone valve Primary circuit PRV sealed system kit Central heating flow and return Solar Heating System Stainless Lite HP SOL is suitable for use with combined heat pump and solar thermal heating systems. All components in a solar primary circuit must be marked or identified in such a way that their design pressure and temperature can be readily determined A safety device (pressure relief valve) to control the risk of over-pressure in system components should be fitted. A termination from a safety pressure device should minimise the risk of damage to persons or materials. Suitable locations are a high temperature receptacle, an internal gully or else issue externally at ground level. High level termination from walls or on roofs could cause injury to people or animals below if the valve were to release scalding water and steam. The pipe leading to the safety device and the collector should be of rigid and nondeformable construction, without any possibility of restriction or disclosure by any other fitted component. A more detailed diagram of our recommended arrangement for a typical solar system is shown on page 15. This provides all the necessary controls and safety devices necessary for the solar system i.e. the two port zone valve is wired as an energy cut out and the pump/valve will only allow heat transfer as required under control of the solar controller. The pocket provided for the Dual Thermostat also includes the facility to accommodate an 8mm diameter sensor which, with the sensor located in the solar collector (or in the flow pipe immediately adjacent to the collector), will provide the information required by the solar controller. Page 19 Note: If the motorised valve is not used then any factory built hydraulic station for solar use MUST be fitted with suitable non-return valves in both flow and return pipes to prevent gravity circulation when the pump is not running. If there is a possibility of the solar controller that you install causing the cylinder temperature to exceed 80°C, under normal working conditions, then a Solar tempering valve must be fitted to the domestic hot water outlet of the cylinder. This must limit the hot water temperature to a maximum of 60°C.(ref building regulations part G3 3.63). This product can be supplied from Gledhill part number XC007 which has a inlet temperature limit of 100°C. Suitable plumbing configurations for installing this valve are shown on page 12 of this manual. NB. Overheat thermostats may require resetting if the solar thermal heat source raises the cylinder temperature above 85°C.

Please refer to the heat pump manufacturers installation instructions. INSTALLATION Page 21 INSTALLATION INSTALLATION Connections can come loose in transit, and all should be checked before installation. Ensure that the immersion heater achieves a temperature of at least 60°C in the store and that the wiring is in accordance with the diagram. Check the pressure on the air side of the expansion vessel = 3 bar. This must be done when the water in the cylinder is free to expand in atmospheric pressure or the cylinder and relevant pipe work is empty. Check that the drain cock is closed, and open all the cold and hot water taps and other terminal fittings. Allow the system to fill with water, and to run until there is no air left in the system. Close the taps and inspect the system closely for leaks. IS DRAINED PRIOR TO CHECKING OR REMOVING FILTER FROM THE COMBINATION INLET GROUP. Allow the cylinder to heat to normal working temperature with whatever heat source is to be used, and check again for leaks. The Pressure Relief Valve should not operate during the heating cycle. Manually open the Relief Valves one by one and check that water is discharged and run freely through the tundish and out at the discharge point. The pipework should accept full bore discharge without overflowing at the tundish, and the valve should seat satisfactorily. The boiler/heating systems should be filled and commissioned in accordance with good practice following the guidance in BS 7593:2006/the boiler manufacturers instructions. This includes adequately flushing the system to remove any debris that may have been introduced during installation/maintenance. In line with good plumbing practice, use with excessive flux should be avoided. NOTE When soldering above the cylinder, ensure flux/solder does not contaminate the cylinder below, since this can cause corrosion, Flushing should be done performed as per BS EN 806:4 2010 section 6.2 At the time of commissioning, complete all relevant sections of the Benchmark Checklist located on the inside back pages of this document. Allow the cylinder to heat to normal working temperature, then thoroughly flush the domestic hot and cold water pipework through each tap. NOTE: If this appliance is to be installed in other than a single domestic dwelling ie. in an apartment block or student flats etc., the hot and cold water system will need to be disinfected in accordance with BS EB 806:4 2010 section 6.3 and the Water Regulations. Because the Stainless Lite appliance is stainless steel, the use of chlorine as the disinfection agent can cause damage unless the appliance is adequately flushed and refilled with the mains water immediately on completion of the disinfection procedure. Damage caused through a failure to do this adequately will not be covered by the warranty. For the above reasons we recommend the use of a non chlorine dased disinfectant such as Fernox LP Sterox as manufactured by Cookson Electronics when carrying out disinfection of systems incorporating these appliances. IMPORTANT - DRAIN DOWN PROCEDURE 1 Switch off both the heat pump and the immersion heater 2 Open the nearest hot tap and run all hot water until cold 3 Close the incoming cold main at the stop tap 4 Hold open the pressure and temperature relief valve until water stops discharging into the tundish 5 Open all the taps in the property 6 Open the drain cock and immediately hold open the pressure and temperature relief valve again until the cylinder is empty Remove the filter from the combination inlet group clean and replace. Refill the system and open all hot taps until there is no air in the pipe work. ENSURE CYLINDER COMMISSIONING Page 22 This must be completed during commissioning and left with the product to meet the Warranty conditions offered by Gledhill. USER INSTRUCTIONS Your Stainless Lite unvented cylinder is automatic in normal use, but requires routine maintenance which is normally carried out at least annually along with the boiler service. The maintenance must be carried out by a suitably competent tradesperson who is qualified to work on unvented cylinders. The checks/work needed are listed in the maintenance part of these Instructions. The heat pump control thermostat should switch to the hot water zone valve before the heat pump starts to cycle on its internal thermostats. For example if the maximum primary flow temperature available from the heat pump is 55°C, then the control thermostat should be set to 48°C. (This setting should not be changed by the occupant.) When initially opening the taps, a small surge in flow may be experienced, which disappears as the pressure in the system stabilises. This is quite normal with these types of systems and does not indicate a fault. In some areas the water will initially appear cloudy, but will quickly clear when left to stand. This is nothing to be concerned about and is due to aeration of the water. WARNING - If water is seen flowing through the tundish, this indicates a fault condition which needs action. If the discharge is hot and continuous, turn the boiler and/or the immersion heaters off, but do not turn off the cold water to the appliance until the discharge is cold. Note: The discharge may stop by itself as the discharge cools. If the discharge is cold and intermittent, no immediate action is needed but this indicates a problem with the expansion vessel. However, in both cases you must call the registered installer / a suitably qualified, competent tradesperson, advise them that you have an unvented cylinder and request a maintenance visit. DO NOT, at any time, tamper in any way with the safety valves or overheat thermostats/ wiring. Page 23 USER INSTRUCTIONS SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE The Registered Installer is responsible for the safe installation and operation of the system. The installer must also make his customer aware that periodic maintenance of the equipment is essential for safety. Maintenance periods will vary for many reasons. Gledhill Building Products Ltd recommend a maximum of 12 months to coincide with boiler maintenance. Experience of local water conditions may indicate that more frequent maintenance is desirable, eg, when water is particularly hard, scale-forming or where the water supply contains a high proportion of solids, eg, sand. Maintenance must include the following: 1. 2. 3. 4. Check and clean filter Manually check the operation of the temperature relief valve. Manually check the operation of the expansion relief valve. Check discharge pipes from temperature and expansion relief valves are free from obstruction and blockage and are not passing any water. 5. Check the condition and if necessary descale the heat exchangers in hard water areas. 6. Check that water pressure downstream of pressure reducing valve is within the manufacturers limits. 7. Check operation of motorised valve. 8. Check the pressure on the air side of the expansion vessel. This must be done when the volume in the cylinders is cold. 9. Check and advise the householder not to place any clothing or other combustible materials against or on top of this appliance. 10.On completion of the work, fill in the Benchmark Service Record at towards the back of this manual. IMPORTANT NOTE When draining down the appliance for any reason, the instructions provided in the Commissioning Section MUST be followed to prevent potential damage to the cylinder. After servicing, complete the relevant Service Interval Record section of the Benchmark Checklist located on the inside back pages of this document. SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE Page 24 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE Scale In hard water areas it is recommended that an in-line scale inhibitor is fitted. Reducing the temperature of the stored water will reduce the rate at which scale forms. If the recovery rate is badly affected, this is an indication that scaling may have occurred. In this event, follow the procedures as recommended by a reputable Water Treatment Company. General No water at the tap. Check that the mains water supply is turned ON. Check the line strainer is not blocked. Check that the combination valve has been fitted so that water is flowing in the correct direction. If the water at the tap is cold, ensure that the boiler has been switched ON and is working correctly. Check that there are no air locks in the primary system. ISOLATE THE UNIT AT THE MAINS ELECTRIC SUPPLY AND THEN CHECK THE FOLLOWING: i. The cylinder thermostat ii. The thermal cut-out, which can be re-set by pushing the red button iii. The motorised valve iv. The boiler thermostat v. The boiler thermostat cut-out (if fitted) ANY ENERGY CUT-OUT MUST NEVER BE BY-PASSED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. If the units are not getting hot and the heat source is electrical, ensure that the immersion heaters are isolated from the mains before re-setting the energy cut-out. If the immersion heater(s) need replacing this should be done with the units supplied from Gledhill Building Products Limited. Same day despatch to approved installers can be arranged by telephoning 01253 474402. Discharge From Relief Valves If cold water is discharging from the expansion relief valve into the tundish check the pressure on the expansion vessel when cold and recharge if necessary. If the fault continues and the problem cannot be stopped by operating the easing control a few times then either the Pressure Reducing Valve or the Relief Valve may be at fault. If the cold water pressure is too high, this would suggest that the Pressure Reducing Valve is at fault and the Gledhill approved replacement should be fitted. If the pressure is correct then the Relief Valve will require replacing with a Gledhill approved component. See Commissioning for drain down procedure. If there is an overheat fault and very hot water is being discharged, turn off the heat source, but not the water supply. When the supply is cool, check thermostats and energy cut-outs in the boiler and immersion heaters and replace the faulty component with a unit supplied by Gledhill and check that it works correctly before returning the system to full operation.

Scope This assessment will cover the largest unit within each product range manufactured by Gledhill. For speciﬁc weights and dimensions please refer to technical data section. Main Hazards Vision may not be clear due to the size of the products. Adopting an incorrect method of lifting may cause injury, attempting to lift these products will require help from others. (Team lifts) Control Measures Manual lifting procedure Individual capability The lift, key factors in safe lifting are: Individual capability plays an important part in handling these products. Persons above average build and strength will ﬁnd it easier and should be in good health. Persons below average build and strength may require more rest periods during the handling process. a. b. c. d. e. Balance Position of back Positioning of the arms and body The hold Taking the lead for team lifts a. Balance - Since balance depends essentially upon the position of the feet, they should be apart about hip breadth with one foot advanced giving full balance sideways and forward without tension. In taking up this position, lifting is done by bending at the knees instead of the hips and the muscles that are brought into use are those of the thigh and not the back. b. c. d. e. Taking the lead for team lifts- As more than one person is required for these products ensure that one person is taking the lead. This may be you so ensure that each person that is helping is made aware of the weight and of the items listed within this assessment. Make sure you and any others helping know the route you intend to take that it is clear of any obstructions. Never jerk the load as this will add a little extra force and can cause severe strain to the arms, back and shoulders. If there are steps involved decide on where you will stop and take a rest period. Move smoothly and in unison taking care to look and listen to others helping with the lift. Where possible use a sack truck to move the product over long ﬂat distances, only lift the products when necessary. If in doubt stop and get more help. Position of back - Straight - not necessary vertical. The spine must be kept rigid, this coupled with a bent knee position, allows the centre line of gravity of the body to be over the weight so reducing strain. Positioning of arms and body - The further arms are away from the side, the greater the strain on the shoulders, chest and back. Keep elbows close to the body arms should be straight. The hold - Before lifting ensure you have a good hold. Pregnant women should not carry out this operation. Persons who are not in good health should seek medical advice prior to commencing any lifting or manual handling operation. Residual risk Following the guidelines given above will reduce any risk to injury. All persons carrying out this operation must be fully trained and copies of the speciﬁc risk assessment made available for inspection and use in their training process. Further guidance on Manual Handling can be obtained from the Health and Safety Executive. Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992.
