How to hang a boiler</a>

In the absence of central hot water supply or for reasons of economy, in the bathrooms and in the kitchen install storage water heaters - boilers.

The very word, in general, and means in English a tank for heating water.

What are the nuances to consider before you hang a boiler?

You will need

  • - Roulette-
  • - electric drill with a 12 mm-
  • - plumbing tools-
  • - power tool-
  • - necessary fittings (tees, valves, dielectric couplings, etc.) for connection of the boiler to cold and hot water supply and sewerage-
  • - fixings (8 mm hooks) and 12 mm plastic dowels (in the case of through-hole drilling - a threaded hook of the required length, nuts and wide washers).



Choose the location of the boiler installation - the wall construction must withstand the weight of the water heater. In addition, there should be enough space to install the boiler.


Determine if you can connectBoiler to the water supply, sewerage and electricity in the selected place. Assess the possibility of draining water into the sewage system through the overpressure safety valve.


Consider the options for laying the pipes and cable needed to install the boiler. Consider the number of plumbing fixtures that will be connected to the boiler.


Do all the work to connect theBoiler. To connect the electricity, a circuit breaker must be provided directly in front of the boiler. To avoid overloading the wiring harness, the supply cable should be routed to the electrical panel.


Drill a hole in brick or concreteWall for the hook, access to which is the most problematic. The drilling depth is the length of the plug or 5 mm deeper. Screw in the dowel and screw the hook. If the wall is not brick or concrete, there is an option of fixing through threaded hooks through the wall. The walls of the sankabina are not designed for such loads - it is a gypsum reinforced structure, built into the capital during construction (bathrooms in many apartment buildings). Therefore, holes are drilled through a partition of the sankabina in a concrete or brick wall. The same applies to walls, faced with gypsum or board.


Hang on a screwed hook boiler - it safely withstands weight up to 200 kg.


Align the water heater on the wall and mark the drilling locations of the remaining fixing holes. Remove the boiler and drill all the marked holes.


Screw on the inlet connection no more than 4The overpressure safety valve (if you screw more, it stops working). If necessary (if there is no cold water meter) - install a coarse filter before the inlet pipe.


Connect the boiler to the water pipe throughDielectric couplings and valves (if the boiler is one - the valve is only needed for cold water). It is not recommended to install the valve directly to the safety valve.


Connect the boiler to the mains.
