KwikWash I Series

Instant hot water at 99.7% energy efficiency

The Billi Kwikwash I Series incorporates unique heating technology that directly heats the water without using a conventional resistance element, called Optimised Direct Energy Transfer. The unit will use no power at all unless the tap is being used. When the water flows, the system determines the exact amount of energy needed to heat the water to the required temperature reducing scale and increasing efficiency.

Using life-cycle analysis, the heating technology, installed in medium density apartments, is up to 3.1 times more energy efficient than gas and up to 1.6 times compared with solar-boosted gas!

 

No TMV requirement

As the KwikWash I Series unit has an incorporated temperature monitor, it is able to provide water within +/-1.5C, eliminating the need for a TMV reducing upfront installation and ongoing maintenance costs. This is unique in the instant water heating market. The Billi Kwikwash has been tested to and is compliant with NSW Health requirements.

Single model

Typically hot water units are rated to different inlet water temperatures which means you are required to choose the correct system. The Billi Kwikwash I Series has a single model which delivers the accurate temperature water no matter what the inlet temperature.

Note; not suitable for SA and WA due to water quality and conductivity requirements. New model to follow.

Scald-safe design

The Billi KwikWash incorporates an inbuilt safety sensor which prevents the temperature exceeding 43.5°C eliminating the risk of scalding.

KwikWash I Series - FAQS

Yes. The technology used in KwikWash I Series is new. It is this revolutionary new technology that delivers these additional features and benefits:

  • “Optimised” System – 100% “optimisation” keeps the hot water temperature stable even if the cold water pressure drops. It also takes advantage of the incoming water temperature – the warmer the incoming water, the less energy is used to heat the water to the required temperature.
  • The hot water temperature is accurately maintained at the set temperature
  • This ranges between 20°C and a maximum of 50°C. The water temperature will not exceed 50°C
  • Low standby Energy Consumption
  • TVs can consume between 10W to 15W of energy while on standby – in contrast, the KwikWash I Series will only consume 1W to 1.5W while in standby mode.

The unit draws just the required amount of power, just when it is needed. It may draw up to 40Amps, but it only uses energy while the tap is in use.

The unit will stop and restart. Every time the unit restarts it needs to be run for about 1min before it will start to heat again.

The unit will stop working and the LED on the front will go RED. This may happen intermittently in areas where the water supply agency blends water from different sources.
