4.0 out of 5 stars Decent unit., 16 Oct 2014
The reviewer who gave this 2 stars was obviously deluded in their original expectations. Its clearly better than that, but you need to know what to expect...

It does works pretty well and is the most efficient way to heat water with electricity. The temperature of hot water will vary depending on (1) the input (cold) water temperature and (2) the volume of water running through - if you link it to the mains and turn it on full you're only likely to get luke warm water. If you limit the amount of running water you'll get perfectly decent hot water. There is a control to limit the maximum temperature to avoid scalding. At the max setting the heater is sufficient to produce about a pint of "normal" tap hot water (about 55deg C) in about 15sec - which I'd suggest is just about adequate. If you want more flow than this suggest you get one of the units that heats and stores the water, which is obviously less energy efficient and will need more space (for the storage).

One disappointing feature is you cant easily set it to limit the flow such that you get the temperature you want all the time. The only way to do this is to limit the flow into or out of the unit, which is what we did in the end (simply by 1/2 closing the input valve on the plumbing).

One other comment I'd say is it was a little bigger than I was expecting - just bigger than a sheet of A4 and about 8cm thick. Plus you'll need to allow more space all round for pipes and to get the front cover off for any maintenance (at least a couple of cm all round, more at the bottom.)

We also had some confusion with the wiring as the terminal block is listed as "L","L" and "E" (i.e. no neutral!!). The instruction manual is also LESS than helpfull on this! But after a bit of investigation we opted to put L on left, N middle and E right and worked fine. You will also need a 10mm electric cable to use (which you (or your electrician) will need to supply separately, and this will need to be connected to a 40A circuit breaker in your fusebox. Installation will need to be signed off by a qualified electrician.

Excellent book entirely written in verse. The language is now slightly dated, it there is a wonderful philosophical message I here for living life that even the very little kids I read too seem to appreciate.

This is basically a series of very hard tongue-twisters. It is NOT a storey in the mold of most other DR Seuss books. Disappointed...

Some good humour, and the kids love it - and that's all 3 of my 2,4 and 6year olds. What more do you need to know!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too soft, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As other reviewers mentioned the metal is too soft. When you try to open the blade, it is simply not man-enough for the job and bends/distorts the metal at the 'teeth' end. Might be ok if the blade isn't too tight. But then what's the chance of that?!

Not god enough, considering this is what it was supposed to do.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Blunt rubbish. Do yourself a favour and get the dewalt extreme blades, they are SO much better than these. Unless you only ever do VERY small jobs I would steer clear from this (and similar rubbish). For the tiny bit extra you pay for dewalt you get SO much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 4 May 2014

This review is from: Rigger Gloves (Office Product)
Good value comfortable rugged rigger gloves. My one moan is it is a little on the thin-side, but what do you expect for the money. Very Cheep so I'm not even going to take a star off for the 'bit on the thin side'-ness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plastic-y tape, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tape is a plastic-foil thin tape, bit like the old 'cassette-tape' (pre CD) type plastic. It is surprisingly strong considering it is very thin. There is no paper backing to remove. It is stuck to itself on the roll (like selotape). It also doesn't stick that great unless the surface is very clean. I tried to use this to joint insulation (celotex)board, and it wasn't that great - but was ok. I would personally stick to the standard foil tape where you peel off the paper to reveal the sticky foil - the type you get from eg travis perkins.
