hi,

in my flat we have a pulsacoil 2000, and there are two switches on the wall next to it - labeled 'Heater 1' and 'Heater 2'. i know that one should be left on at all times, and another just for an hour or so to boost the amount of hot water available, however i can't work out which switch is for which heater. is there any easy way of telling which heater is turned on?

thanks

You can test with a meter.
Or sometimes you can hear which one is heating up.
Take cover off unit.
Switch number 1 on.
And listen near the heaters.

thanks for the reply mike. that sounds like a good idea! just to check, it's the bottom heater than should be on all the time, and the top one that's the boost?

Yes
Bottom one Off Peak and heats all the unit up.

Top one On Peak heat half to 1/3 up
