How it works...

The Rocket” can be installed as a “stand alone” unit, and/or “in series” with your existing hot water heater or geyser.

"Stand Alone Unit"

  • Install ‘The Rocket” as per our Installation Notes, connect your cold water supply to the bottom right connection and the hot water output to the top left connection.
  • Install the Safety Valve on the top plate connection.
  • The larger connection on the top plate, (when supplied), is for a Sacrificial Anode to be installed, if necessary.

"In Series Unit"

  • Install the rocket, on the Hot Water output side of the existing geyser - We provide easy to follow instructions.

"Lighting the Fire"

  • Place some small dry wood pieces, (kindling), such as you would use to start any fire, in the fire-box beneath the rocket.
  • Once you have good flame you can add larger pieces of wood, (small dry logs are best) that will catch quickly and give more flame. Flame is the key to the speed of heating the water in "The Rocket"!
  • Wait 15 – 25 minutes for hot water! (typical for the 50 Litre capacity unit).
