Water heaters are a great alternative to regular water and the new Reliance Water Hose range, available from Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) and Vodafone, has been hailed as a “game-changer” for consumers.
The company is now looking to extend its reach further into the Indian market with the release of two new models.
The first, the Jio 1.2 water heater from Vodacom, is powered by an advanced design and offers a water cooling capacity of 1,200 litres per minute, compared to the 700-litre per minute of a regular water heater.RIL has claimed the JIO 1.0 model has a water heater capacity of 900 litres per minutes, but that could be a little misleading.
The water heater will have a much higher temperature rating, at 673 degrees Celsius.
The Jio 2.0 water heater offers a much more aggressive water cooling rating, with a maximum water temperature of 671 degrees Celsius, which is equivalent to a 4,000-litres-per-minute water heater in the regular market.
Both models are designed to be used in households with children, which makes sense as they are designed with kids in mind.
However, if you need more water, you can also upgrade to the J2.0.
The Jio has an IP65 rating, meaning water can’t enter the device through cracks, but this does mean the device is designed for use with outdoor water.
The Reliance 2.2 Jio water heater has an additional water temperature control unit which is connected to the front of the water heater via a plug.
When the unit is connected, it will monitor the water temperature and if it’s above the required temperature, it’ll switch to a higher-temperature setting.
The 2.5-liters-per day capacity of the Jiolo water heater is more than enough for an entire household.
The only real issue with this water heater would be that it has a high water pressure which could be problematic if you are not careful.
However, there is a little trick you can do to keep your water temperature down.
The water heater on the other hand is a more sophisticated product.
This water heater can also be used with a smart thermostat to automatically lower the water pressure if you don’t want to be under the water during the hottest part of the day.
If you use a smart home hub, this water-saving feature can be activated by a single tap.
With a water pressure of 1.5 millimetres per second, the water-cooling capacity is quite high.
However for those who have to deal with high pressure, the 2.3-litels-per person Jio model can be used to provide a decent amount of cooling.
The standard model will also give you a decent water cooling.
The RIL Jio Hose water heater features a dual-stage water cooling system which allows you to lower the temperature of the unit to the recommended setting by just a few degrees.
The system works in tandem with the smart thertopat.
The two models are available now at Reliance Electronics and Vibhu Power in India.
They will retail for $199.99 in the US and £199.95 in the UK.
