Propex 10L Water Heater - Crackin' Buy!!

by (04 Sep 2014)
4 star review(4/5)
I wanted to add hot water to the caravan and bought the Propex 10L water heater. The unit is very reasonably priced, is a small footprint so easily installed and produces a very decent output of hot water for saying it is only 900W. There are two things to be aware of when considering buying this heater; one is the drain valve is achieved by a very small screw on the non-return valve on the heater inlet. With the water being stored in the heater, the water could be a source of legionella if not heated and maintained above 62 degrees C and so it is advisable to drain the heater down if the heater is not to be used for a while; not just in case of freezing conditions as per the manufacturers instructions. Whether this small screw is man enough to take that many drain down operations remains to be seen. The other thing to take into account is the heater can only be oriented with the cold inlet below the hot outlet on the heater and must be horizontal. If you want the heater to be mounted vertically because of space constraints, then this is not possible. If it wasn't for these 2 items above a definite 5 stars would have been awarded. Service from LeisureShopDirect was again brilliant and would definitely purchase from them again.

My caravan under the seat water heater finally gave up after a number of repairs. I chose this electric only water heater as a cheaper option replacement. Delivery was quick and spot on. I carried out the work to fit it. The installation was easy. A three pin plug connection into the electric,s and within a very short time got lashings of hot water. The only thing I had done was to have the old gas supply to the old water heater capped off properly. Great water heater.

Though I havn't been away yet I filled the heater, after the very simple job of fitting it, while outside my house and turned it on. I was surprised it only took about five minutes for the water to heat up to a usable temperature, at which point I turned it off. I was pleasantly surprised the following day to see that I could wash quite comfortably with the water even then. I am well pleased and consider it one of my better purchases.

Excellent piece of kit. Our motorhome had a gas-only boiler which had seen better days. This one's great and heats the water very quickly.

The Propex 10ltr Water Heater was very easy to fit. Takes up less space than the old gas water heater it was replacing. It is very efficient in use and takes about 20 minutes to heat water to a useful temperature which it maintains for a long time when the heater is turned off.

Fitted in our newly purchased Tabbert caravan as it had no water heater at all. Easy to install under the seat, easy to use and lots of lovely hot water. Full marks for a splendid piece of kit sensibly priced. Impressed with super fast delivery too, arrived next day.

Took a long time to come but was worth the wait. The Propex 10 lts water heater was very easy to fit to my 362 compass caravan after the original water gave me a lot of trouble.Do not tighten the fittings to much and found the heat setting on third dot to be just right.Just cannot go wrong with this product its workings are so simple.

My old Carver unit exploded... nice mess in my 1998 Luna Ariva. I used the Potec as a replacement. fairly simple to install in the small space under the seat. a little re routing of the piping and away you go. works well as an electric only replacement.

Brilliant peice of equipment, we only have a gas water heater in our motorhome and wanted the flexibility of using electric when on sites. This little unit is easy to fit and can be installed inline with the gas unit so we can use either one.

Excellent service from Leisureshopdirect - received Propex 10litre water heater when they said we would. We had no water heater at all in our caravan and decided upon this one, having read other reviews and having considered the size of the product..We only have small caravan so are restricted for space. Very pleased we did. As promised by the makers the heater was very easy to fit, came with all the fitments we needed and within four hours the heater was installed and working. This included fitting a new tap for hot and cold Easy to use.Very pleased over all.

Our carver boiler blew up, literally, hot water everywhere! So we need to replace it quickly. I was extremely impressed with the service from Leisure Direct. I ordered the Propex water heater at about 2.30pm on one day and it was delivered by 9.00am the next day!
My husband says the heater was easy to fit in our 1997 Bailey Pageant and would agree with the comment about using ptfe tape, although he did not have any fittings break. We never used the gas part of the Carver water heater so this Propex heater was ideal. An excellent product and service.

A nice unit., and quick to heat the water up. Installation reasonably straight forward, but try and fix the mounting bracket both downwards and backwards.
Take care with the plastic fixings, use lots of ptfe tape, get hand tight and then think before getting a spanner out. One of mine snapped after 1/6th of a turn with the smallest adjustable that would fit.
Its a bit of a phaf having to use a screwdriver to drain down.

Having recently purchased the water heater as a replacement for our duel fuel Malaga water heater in the caravan we found propex very simple to install and use although setting the temperature is a bit hit and miss at first but once you have found the right setting you cannot fault its capabiliies/efficency. We also found the service from Lesuireshop direct to be first class.

my carver gave up and died after eleven years the replacement Henry costs £360 and as I never used gas to heat the water decided to give the Protec a try , what a saving at £184, its easy to fit with the minimum of DIY skill and fitted perfectly in the space of my old carver also very smart design. my van is a coachman laser.If you dont use gas go on and save yourself some money.

very smart looking . you could use it anywhere. got this water heater because our van hasn't any hot water ( avondale panther 6600 SL) should be easy to fix ,no gas to mess about wirh . not put in van yet. one thing i have noticed, to set temperature.you have only got dots , so it will be a guessing game to get the right temperature. but the price is spot on . i think propex have got a winner with this water heater.

I've recently purchased this Propex heater as a replacement for the now discontinued Elgena heater which was useless. Having recently fitted the new heater and tested it I believe it to be a far superior product as it works fantastically well. The service I received from Leisureshop direct was exceptional
