Compliant installation of hotun dry trap tundish on a small unvented cylinder

For small unvented water heaters (less than 15 litres capacity) the hotun dry trap tundish provides the perfect solution to compliantly resolve any prv discharge issues.

Highly Commended at H&V News Awards 2016

Being small and compact with 2 standard connections, hotun can be installed in a matter of minutes and in the most confined places.

Connect the water heater’s pressure relief valve (PRV) through hotun and then direct to a local waste or foul drain, without odours being ventilating back into the building.

 

This provides an air break to drain with a safe and visible means of discharge, thereby allowing a compliant* connection.

* It is compliant (when fitted in accordance with the installation instructions) with all necessary Water and Building Industry regulations, (in force wef Mar 2014) provided that the waste and/or foul stack can be demonstrated to be able to withstand the effects of the expected temperatures being discharged. Please note, Polypropylene (PP) and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) are generally accepted by building control to be used as suitable materials in this application. However, if in doubt, please contact your local building control for advice before installation.

** The spring/valve/diaphragm assembly is precisely engineered to hold the diaphragm shut under normal operating conditions (to prevent odours being ventilated back up from the foul waste pipes or drain), but still allow the valve to open with a minimal quantity of water in the upper chamber. We call this the trigger point and is set to release at between 5ml and 25ml of water. The upper chamber will hold 50ml of water before overflowing.
