Usually water heater is on the rear surface of the mounting plate with shaped holes in the shape of a keyhole.These holes should enter the head fixed in a wall screws or dowels.Work on installing the water heater is best done together: one person holds heater , pencil marks the second attachment points.
Note the accuracy of the layout - even a small deviation can lead to what is enshrined in wall screws or dowels are not suitable to the holes of the fixing plate of the heater or the device will be installed obliquely.
Fixing the heater to the concrete or brick wall is easiest to implement using dowels and construction pistol.As if this is not possible, drill the wall drill holes for the mounting screws.Given the weight of the water heat
er, the length of the screws must be at least 5 cm. Drilled holes on the cement or epoxy resin insert wooden stoppers or plastic liners.In the first case, the drill bit jams diameter smaller than the diameter of the screws, the holes are drilled length of 2/3 of their length.Next screwed screws and left to complete the setting cement or resin.
reliability can be provided for a third screw, screw the two already screwed and just below them.It must rely on its lower face mounting plate of the heater.This option will prevent deflection and mounting plate, which is found on some types of water heaters.On the screw can be put on the washer, it will enable more secure the edge of the plate.
installed water heater should be positioned vertically, but sometimes this can not be achieved because of the location of the mounting plate - tank heater is tilted slightly.In this case, the sheet under its lower part, with the wall lining required thickness of solid rubber.
