It is an integral storage tank and heater element, just mounted horizontally. You may be referring to a system that has an oil fired boiler, storage...

Re: Power fluctuations - electric supply

It probably does not need pointing out, but then again: :wink:
The plumbing is entirely different if using a single storage tank hot water system. It needs to be either built that way during construction, or if later,the "Thai way" with all the piping exposed on the walls.

Automatic traffic speed signs

Anybody else noticed these, or was I seeing things(again)? Somewhere north of Petchaburi before the big interchange travelling north, if I recall correctly. A large digital readout showing your speed with a fixed sign that reads what the speed limit is at that place. https://monitorsystems.net/produ...
