1. Gas - Permanent - Instantaneous

The Girard Endless Hot Water System provides a continuous flow of hot water up to a maximum temperature of 45 degrees. It will supply hot water until either the water supply runs out or the gas bottle is empty, making it perfect for those who simply cannot go without a long shower. Available with Black or White door.

2. Gas - Portable - Instantaneous

Hang the unit in a convenient location and draw water from a water storage container, a bucket, or a river. This setup is great for camping or situations where only a portable hot water service is suitable. All parts are supplied, including a pump; just add a gas bottle and water.

3. 240V/12V - Permanent - Storage

This 10L unit is a great option where gas or mains cannot be used but 12 volts is available, such as a caravan equipped with a larger battery and solar setup. While this unit does have a mains powered element if mains is available, it also has a 12V element which is rated at 300 watts. This will give you 10L of hot water within the hour while using free energy from your solar installation.

4. 240V/Gas - Permanent - Storage

These combination units give you the best of both worlds, electrical when you are in a powered location or Gas operation when free camping. Various brands are available with water storage up to 20L. Also available in gas only.

Did You Know?

A complete service for your Suburban hot water unit is recommended every 12 months, or before any big trip. This is just one of the many services we offer at our professional workshop including the replacement or fitment of the unit.  Checking and replacing the anode, flushing the tank, checking and replacing the element, and in gas models cleaning out the burner tube, are all essentials to keep your hot water unit operating at its best.

Below are some images of a unit that wasn’t serviced regularly, which resulted in a complete replacement.
