Standard or manual gas geysers

These types of gas geysers are the most basic and traditional type of gas water heater and range from 6 litres to 20 litres per a minute.

They use a manual control system to regulate the temperature of the water. The user will need to manually adjust the temperature setting as needed.

These types of gas geysers are typically less expensive than other types but may require more frequent adjustments to maintain a consistent water temperature.

Pros and cons of standard gas geysers:


  • Cost-effective water heating solution
  • Easy to operate
  • Can be set to different water temperatures for winter and summer


  • Cannot provide hot water to multiple taps simultaneously
  • Cannot be set to a specific temperature
  • May not be able to supply hot water to upstairs areas due to water pressure limitations
  • May require a weather cover for outdoor installation
  • Must be installed with a flue pipe for proper flue extraction
  • Sensitive to water pressure fluctuations, which can affect the consistency of the water temperature.

Overall, standard gas geysers can be a cost-effective option for households with relatively low hot water demand. However, they may not be the most suitable choice for larger households or for those who require a consistent water temperature and high hot water flow rate.

Constant temperature gas geysers

This unit uses a thermostat to automatically maintain a consistent water temperature flow. The water temperature remains constant and does not fluctuate like it can with standard or manuel water heaters. It can provide a more comfortable and consistent showering experience for the user. The unit has a higher effeciantcy rating as they dont need to be constantly adjusted.

Heres some points to consider:

  • Energy efficiency: Constant water heaters only heat water when it is needed, which can save energy and reduce monthly utility bills.
  • Compact size: Constant water heaters are smaller in size compared to traditional tank-style water heaters, making them a good choice for small homes or apartments with limited space.
  • Multiple units may be needed: If you have a high hot water demand, you may need to install multiple constant water heaters to meet your needs.

Overall, constant water heaters can be a suitable option for a single bathroom , Building extensions , domestic room, outside shower etc

Forced fan gas geysers

A gas fan forced water heater is a type of gas water heater that uses a fan to force hot air into a heating chamber which allows for faster hot water delivery.

They are typically more expensive than other types of gas geysers but may be a good choice for households with a high hot water demand.

This type of water heater has several benefits, including:

  • High efficiency: Gas fan forced water heaters are very gas efficient, as the fan helps to evenly distribute heat throughout the heating chamber. This means that less gas is needed to heat the water to the desired temperature.
  • Precise temperature control: With a gas fan forced water heater, you can precisely set the water temperature to your desired level. This is not possible with some other types of water heaters, which may not have a temperature control dial.
  • Not sensitive to water pressure: Gas fan forced water heaters are not sensitive to fluctuating water pressure, which means that you can expect consistent hot water at the set tempreture regardless of the pressure in your water line.
  • Long warranty: Many gas fan forced water heaters come with a warranty, which can provide peace of mind and protection against any potential defects or issues with the unit.
  • Able to provide hot water to multiple points or to an upstairs bathroom.
  • Can be connected to a solar water system as an alernative on those cloudy days. The unit will turn on if it detects the current flow of water has dropped below a set tempreture.This ensures a constant delivery of hot water.
  • Gas fan forced water heaters do not require a flue pipe, which means that they can be installed in a wider range of locations.

However, there are also some downsides to consider:

  • Require an electrical connection to power the computer, 12 volt fan and the igniters. We sell battery ups systems so you not affected during loadshedding
  • Typically the most expensive type of gas water heater, so they may not be a feasible option for everyone.
  • Single Point / Battery Operated

    Torch battery operated Gas water heaters are designed with ease of installation in mind and from a budget aspect. They are simple, safe, reliable and efficient to a single point. They are available in sleek and modern designs. The battery gas water heater eliminates the need for a hot water cylinder. This unit provides a solution to residential property's and camper van applications. The unit is most commonly used for kitchen sinks, Domestic buildings, spare bathrooms, outside showers etc. The heaters are available in a varied selection of output and flow rates. Some of the units are also useful in low-pressure areas which means that these water heaters are suitable for almost any location.

  • Multi Point

    Multi Point fan forced water heater – What are they, and what are the benefits? A gas multipoint water heater is a gas powered water heater that heats domestic hot water instantaneously to multiple points around your home or building – thus the term “multipoint”. These multipoint water heaters allow you to connect the water heater to a number of hot water outlets throughout your property or home or even a commercial building.

    They are also an energy saving solution to more traditional hot water storage systems, as they only heat the water when its required, saving not only energy itself, but also wasted energy costs as well. These facts have made multipoint water heaters not only the users water heater of choice, with great user comfort, but also the gas installers choice as well.

  • Commercial

    Commercial water heating solutions utilize instantaneous, condensing gas water heaters - which offer outstanding efficiencies, will deliver an endless supply of hot water only on demand, without the need to maintain large amounts of stored hot water - Saving Energy and Money.
