bath and water - are indivisible.Water poured over the stones that are in the oven, for the very "light" steam, and in the shower, "compartment" can not do without it.Accordingly, the water tank in the bath (not just a tank and a high-quality container) to be present in the interior.What criteria will be decisive in his choice?What you should definitely pay attention to?Let's get started.


selects the optimum settings ↑

Before you decide on the size of the tank, think about how muchindividuals will be a time in the bath.You plan to bathe alone?Then more than 50 liters of hot water to you, believe me, is not required.Count on "productive" holiday in the steam room now good friends?Tank water in the bath in this case should be of not less than 80 liters.

the chosen size will directly depend on the thickness of the walls of the container.For stainless steel tank with a volume of no more than 50

liters of optimal thickness is 1 mm.The larger the capacity, the thicker the steel.Tank "Company" should have a minimum wall thickness of 1.5 mm.

thick tank walls contribute to a more uniform heating of water and long-term preservation of accumulated heat.On this parameter as "wall thickness" definitely should not save.However, it is worth noting that in proportion to the thickening of the walls will not only increase the price of container, but its weight (solid).

carefully categorized as to the choice of the design of the tank - be sure that the number of terminals optimally, and see how things are going with the introduction.

Tanks for water for baths - ↑

types depending on their location relative to the furnace are classified as:

  • built-in oven (traditional);
  • located on the tube;
  • outrigger.

tank, built-in oven - a "classic" of the genre.The bottom of the boiler is mounted directly to the top of the furnace - it allows the liquid to heat up for a minimum time period and stored for long periods "newfound" heat.As you know, in this case, the hot flame is in direct contact with the container;This construction is not dependent on the position of the chimney.Water abstraction from the built-in tank is done either through the top cover, either through provided for this purpose crane.

External Tank
External water tank

oven equipped with heat exchangers, connecting it to the tank, gives the possibility to use outrigger water tank is not "tied" to a particular position.Here all the "runs" the principle of convection: cold water from the tank "directed" in the heat exchanger and warmed up, returned.The advantage of this disposition of the fact that the external tank may be set (relative) exist anywhere.For example, in the washing - there is a need for hot water is extremely high (compared to other bath rooms).

«stability» of temperature in the tank with a minimum expenditure of energy - probably the most desired combination.Installation of the tank on the pipe, which serves to bring the smoke from the oven, allow to realize it.Smoke generation (the result of fuel combustion) is accompanied by a temperature of 500 ° C, so the water in the tank, located on the tube is heated almost instantly.

Having ventured just such a structural variant safely purchase tank respectable size.After the tube as a heating element can be operated over its entire length from the furnace to the ceiling.The water will heat up quickly, evenly.

Determine the material ↑

choosing a tank for a bath, be sure to pay attention to the material from which made the aforesaid.The most popular today are steel cans.It is not surprising, because the steel has a lot of advantages.The product of it is not subject to harmful (corrosive) moisture - note, this factor is extremely important for the given operating conditions.Stainless steel is characterized by excellent thermal conductivity - water in the tank heats up quickly.In addition, steel is quite resistant to sudden temperature changes: the race is almost not deformed.

iron is not less popular, and thus the tanks out of it.Although the water is not heated very quickly, but the heat is retained for a long time - enough for a thematic pastime in small company.Iron also niskolechko not afraid of high temperatures and resist corrosion;Its only drawback - an impressive weight.

Care tanks is simple, it does not require any specific knowledge;big trouble this "element" you do not take.The main thing - do not forget the basic rules of operation and installation prescribed in the instructions.They build their own tank?Remember safety.

Duet good oven and a good tank will help you create a unique style in a room filled with the warmth of the bathhouse;comfort, adorable.Be serious and responsible in selecting significant elements (one of which is clearly a tank) - just so you can again and again to take pleasure from a pleasant stay.Bath should charge you a good mood, give an excellent feeling, not suggest, crudity designs.

From "light" steam!
