Should "Water Heater" switch be on?

Post  jjgallop on Mon Jan 18, 2010 11:46 am

Hi, I've been having problems with my Pulsacoil 2000.

It heats up water every night using the Off Peak electricity, but how much hot water you get the next day is variable - some days it can be as little as half a shower before it goes cold. The boost button also works and this is what I tend to use when the water runs out. So both off-peak and on-peak immersion heaters work.

The off-peak and boost both work from a clock timer which works fine. Below the clock timer is a switch labelled "Water Heater" which I always keep off. When you switch it on, the Pulsacoil starts making kettle noises (similar when I use the boost button). I always keep it off because I believed that this would heat the water all the time (although I did wonder why there was a boost button as well as this separate switch)

Below the Water Heater switch is another power switch which is always on.

I recently spoke to a neighbour who keeps their "Water Heater" switch on all the time. I am now wondering whether this switch is a Pump Switch and it should always be kept on and this is what is wrong?

(The LED flashes two times a second which seems normal)

Thanks very much for any advice!

Thanks, I'll make sure I keep it on in future. I'm just surprised it was producing hot water at all with the switch off!
