Details About V-Guard Victo 15 litres Water Heater

V-Guard Victo 15 L Water Heater 2

Different Varieties: This V-Guard water heater is best suited for a small or medium-sized Indian family. You can select 10/15/25 litres depending on your needs.

Designed To Last: You’ll enjoy satisfactory service from this geyser for a long time. It has a high-quality inner tank made of thick steel with an enamel coating. This coating alone will give you several benefits- it’ll let the heater easily withstand hot temperatures, increase its rust resistance and even lower the chances of leakage significantly. There’s a thick magnesium anode rod as well, which gives the heater even more resistive properties towards corrosion. That’s why we highly recommend this model if you live in a coastal area.

Perfectly Handles Hard Water: Because the coating protects this device against scale and corrosion, you can use it confidently, even if you only have access to hard water sources. It won’t run into any problems.

Equipped With A Powerful Heating Element: You’ll never have to wait long for this heater to warm your water, thanks to its Incoloy 800 heating element. It’s a 2 kW Nickel enriched Heating Element that can heat up 15 litres of water in little more than half an hour. What’s good about that is that the performance is always consistent.

Safety Assurance: This water heater includes a four-layer mechanism for added security. Furthermore, it’s even safer since it features a high-quality thermostat and a thermal cut-out that protects against overheating. There is also a safety valve to prevent pressure from building up and causing an overflow. Another advantage of this mechanism is that it avoids reverse water flow and vacuum generation.

Convenient To Use: After installation, you’ll be surprised at how simple it is to use this water heater. There is a temperature control knob, and there are also light indications that improve the user experience.

Leakproof: This water heater features an advanced welding technology that perfectly bonds the inner tank, heating element, and outer body. As a result, you won’t have to worry about leakage.

Notes About The Issues

Display Quality Could Use Slight Improvement: The control panel design isn’t as bad as many other models we’ve come across. Though there’s no digital display, temperature levels are still easy to read, thanks to the control knob. Even better, the knob is placed at a downward angle, so it’s easy to read from height as well. Our only real gripe is that the indicator lights for power and heating status aren’t particularly bright.
