Orient Electric Fontus Storage 15L Review
Orient Electric Limited (OEL) is a pioneer Indian electric brand is selling fans, home appliances, switch gears and lighting. It is a trusted brand and has been innovating products from the past 60 years.
One can now enjoy hot water bath experience with this 15l capacity geyser. Also, it comes with unique safety features like Pressure release Valve, Fusible Valve and Anti-siphon hole, Variable Pressure and compatibility feature that withstands pressure up to 6.5 Bar.
Pressure release valve
It is a safety device designed to protect a pressurized pipe during an over-pressure event. So it can be installed in an area of high pressure as it is in-built to withstand high pressures by not affecting the heating rate of the geyser.
It is an automatic closing heat-actuated valve which is used to avoid the continued flow of fire to the main tank. Hence, in case of a fire alert, it closes the opening of the tank and protects it from getting damaged.
It is required to prevent pressure drops in the water supply line from suctioning water out of the toilet tank and contaminating the water system. Anti-siphon valves function as a one-direction check valve. Hence, it ensures safe water from the geyser for household purposes.
Variable pressure compatibility
This means it can be installed in an area where the pressure difference is variable. The pressure compatibility feature of this geyser optimizes it to an ideal pressure and functions. Also, it can withstand pressure upto 6.5 bars, hence it is suited for both as high as well as ground-level building.
ABS shockproof body
Pneumatic and hydraulic shock absorbers are used in conjunction with cushions and springs. Thus, even if one touches the body of geyser with wet hands (like while bathing to close the knob), they will not get shocked.
Polyurethane foam is a plastic-based type of insulation that has high thermal properties but allows for very minimal air infiltration. Thus, it ensures better heating and long-lasting hot water.
Molded 3 pin plug
They ensure our safety from the current, as compared to a 2-pin plug. It limits the amount of power that can flow through the circuit, as compared to a 2-pin plug. Hence they are safer for households.
What Do We like
Easy and safe to use
It comes with pressure release and fusible valve which saves us from the tension of variable pressures in areas and fear of catching fire in the geyser.
No leakages or contamination of water
The siphon value prevents the water pressure to drop with toilets outlets, and saves from the contaminated water. The water from geyser is safe to use for bathing or cooking.
The ABS shock absorbers used in the body of geyser saves one from getting electric shocks. Even if we touch the geyser with wet hands we will be saved from electric shocks, thus it is convenient to use.
The PUF insulation prevents air infiltration which maximizes the heating effect of geyser while giving us the best outcome. We can store hot water for future use.
It really is a value for money product, with so many features it still is available at an affordable price.
What We Don’t Like
There is nothing to prevent corrosion, thus after long usage the body of the geyser may get corroded, which in turn can make water content high in iron which is unfit for use.
Orient Electric Water Heater comes with advanced modern features. Long lasted heating, easy and safe to use, shockproof body at such an affordable cost is totally worth buying.
