Press Release Summary: Rinnai is pleased to announce the launch of the Aggressive
Water Infinity continuous flow hot water unit, developed as an effective solution
for the unique aggressive water that damages copper piping in Canterbury.

Press Release Body: Canterbury is the largest region in the country that sources its
water from
artesian bores. This coupled with increased irrigation loads on the Canterbury
plains has seen the incidence of damage from aggressive water increase.
Although harmless to humans and therefore rarely acknowledged by council or
rate payers, the corrosive nature of aggressive water causes it to react with
copper, affecting a range of domestic appliances, which have been affecting the
plumbing industry for years.
The heat exchangers in all continuous flow water heaters to date are made of
copper and can develop pinhole leaks from the aggressive water. This causes
the units to leak and the safety systems to shut it down.
All continuous flow units (all manufacturers) are not covered by warranty for use
under certain water conditions - such as aggressive water - as the products are
not designed to withstand these conditions.
Sales and Marketing Manager for Rinnai New Zealand, Dave Waters comments,
"As the only solution available, Rinnai's new Aggressive Water Infinity has been
specifically designed by Rinnai Japan to combat damage in areas where
aggressive water is prevalent."
"We are well aware that many of our existing clients have experienced problems
with pinholing in the copper based Infinity models, and we will undertake
servicing and repair of these units at a heavily subsidised price. Consumers can
also at this time choose to upgrade their heat exchanger to a new Aggressive
Water Heat Exchanger."
"Available in three sizes: XR26, XR32 and XR26i, we highly recommended that
new customers in the Canterbury region purchase Rinnai Aggressive Water
Infinity units, as these are specifically designed for use in the Canterbury area
and are covered by a new, more tolerant warranty", comments Waters.
We are predicting growth for continuous flow water heaters nationwide due to the
increased efficiency they offer. While many manufacturers will overlook the
situation in Christchurch we felt that although isolated, it still warranted a longterm
solution rather than a short-term one.
