Portable hot water system mounting options

The Luxline portable hot water system can be temporarily mounted just about anywhere.

Here are some of the mounting options you can consider:

1. Handle mounting

A standout feature of the Luxline Portable 8 is its easy-carry handle:

The handle has two benefits:

1. It’s easy to pick up and move
2. You can hand the unit over a (non-flammable) door handle or hook

The other advantage of this handle design is it can be hung from two hooks. This provides additional stability. The handle is also quite large, which sets the Luxline apart from its competitors.

2. Semi-permanent mounting to a wall

In this image, you’ll be able to see the mounting holes at the back of the Luxline unit:

These make it possible to sink a couple of bolts into a wall, or the side of your caravan. Then you can just slip the Hot Water System onto the bolts.

Included with the Luxline Hot Water System is a free mounting kit, containing the following:

You will notice that two smaller screws have been provided, which can be used to doubly secure the unit to a wall by its bottom corners. This is a particularly handy option to have if you have kids, as it prevents the unit from being accidentally lifted away from the wall while in use.

Things to consider

Remember to please read the instruction manual in full before you mount your Luxline Portable 8. This unit is only designed for temporary mounting applications and should not be permanently affixed. Please also note that the unit is not rain proof, so you should remove it from the side of your caravan after you’ve finished using it to prevent rain damage.

Safety features of the Luxline portable instant hot water heater

The Luxline Portable 8 has many inbuilt safety features to provide total peace of mind.

Our portable instant hot water heater systems are superior to others on the market, for a number of reasons:

Temperature Safety Sensor

All Luxline units have an inbuilt temperature sensor that automatically switches off the burners if the water temperature exceeds 50°C. This important feature ensures that you will never get scalded by water that is too hot. (This is compliant with current legislation, as outline on the NSW Fairtrading website).

Flame Failure Device

This means that the unit will automatically switch off the flow of gas if the flame is extinguished. Thus you don’t need to worry about gas leaks.

Battery-Powered Ignition

The Luxline 8 relies on battery-powered ignition, so it does not need to be connected to mains electricity. The benefit is it can be operated in remote locations and in blackouts.

Fully Certified

The Luxline Portable 8 is fully certified to the Australian Standard AS2658 – Portable Gas Hot Water System.

Choosing the right type of caravan water pump

Before we get into this, let’s get the ball rolling by asking:

Why should I buy a caravan water pump?

You’ll need a pump to use with your Luxline Portable 8 Hot Water System when you are away from a mains water supply. (The most common scenario is a camping trip).

If you buy a Luxline, a 4.3L water pump will be included FREE with your purchase! It will look a little something like this:

Neat, huh? 🙂

Now we’re going to have a look at the different types of water pump that are currently available on the market. We’ve made the choice easy for you by pairing your water pump choices with three scenarios:

1. No access to mains water, limited stored water

So you’re headed out to the wilderness and you only have room in your 4WD for a limited supply of water. In this scenario we suggest a 4.3L water pump (such as the one supplied with the Luxline Portable 8) because it is the most water efficient. (Information about water efficiency can be found at the WELS website).

While it won’t have the same water pressure as a normal shower, it will still work. So it’s perfect for situations where you want to rid your body of mud, but don’t want to use up all your water and subsequently die of thirst.

2. No access to mains water, plentiful water supply

An 8L water pump is ideal for fishing trips, or camping expeditions where you know you’ll have access to large amounts of clean water. This pump will produce 8 litres of water per minute, giving you a full and satisfying shower experience.

Please note however that if you are planning to use water from a river or creek, you will need to purchase a filter to keep sediment and sludge out of your Luxline Portable 8. The warranty will be voided if you don’t filter the water supply.

3. No access to mains water, plentiful water supply, multiple applications

A 12L water pump is the largest you can get, and it is only necessary if you’re planning to run more than one appliance at once. An example could be that you want to have a shower using your Luxline Portable 8 while simultaneously running a portable washing machine.

Another situation in which a 12L pump is required is if you’re running the water hose over a long distance. But really, these situations are uncommon, and as such we don’t usually recommend this size of pump.
