I have a couple - one 450+ litres eight years old, and one 280+ litres in its thirteenth year. The former has a bit of rust in the door.

Guys anyone own a Steam + Vacuum - all in one? There is a model by Eureka Forbes priced at 25K, which I am considering. It is called Euroclean Pro - Euroclean Pro. I mainly want it to periodically clean our mattresses and maybe sanitize other stuff in the house. It is supposedly good for killing dust mites and such.
If you have alternate suggestions, please let me know.

I finally bough Karcher WD 3.200 for INR 5900. I did not buy Eureka Forbes because of very bad after sales service as mentioned everywhere on internet.

This model has replaceable filter ,that means everytime it gets bad ,you need to buy new paperbag filters . Additional recurring cost every time ?

I am surprised to see a paper bag being used in a wet & dry cleaner.

Default What Size/Capacity Water Geyser...?!?

Hi friends,

with winter approaching, i'm on the lookout of a new hot water geyser but i'm confused about the size.

if one person had to have a 15-20 mins shower under the Shower, then how many liters capacity should i buy ?

Thanks,

Rana.

A lot depends on the temperature of the cold water line. We can have this as low as a few (~5-8C) in peak winter. I find 35litre to be ideal for family use, but in extreme winter even a 50l unit hardly suffices for one person.

Default Terrible Hitachi After Sales

Had the most terrible after sales experience with Hitachi in Noida. Service personnel despite 2-3 reminders have not shown up . Finally after a week a most disinterested engineer arrives only to collect 350/- and announce that gas needs to be changed and machine has to be taken to workshop. Now story repeats itslef that even after 2-3 reminders and one week no one is yet to show up. Totally fed up...
Anyone having similar experience woth Hitachi ?

50l hardly sufficing for even 1 person. wow that's something to think about.

going by what you have suggested should i then just go a 100l option for a family of 4...? This will be used in Delhi which we know gets extremely cold during peak winters.

Are there any particular brands you'd like to recommend ?

As this problem is only for a fortnight at most I feel that a 65l should suffice for a family of four.
As for brands I bought all of mine over a decade ago, so things have changed a lot. I preferred Venus or Racold at that time.

A small 15 ltr will be enough for a quick bath (5 min) for one person (I use this).
But for Delhi's winter you may need a bigger one, the next size is 25/35 ltr.

With every one going green, power-charges increasing, water-scarcity, we need to get the smallest we can buy.

'Venus' brand has been around for many decades: Venus Home Appliances, Venus Water Heaters.

(Venus is situated in my home town, by the way!)

Question Re: Instant Water Heater(1ltr) of 2KW Rating?

I am in search of instant water heater and I see most of the instant water heaters are of 3KW at the minimum(Venus, Racold, AOSmith etc).

Are there any instant water heaters of 2KW capacity? And also, which are the reliable brands in this category?

Please advise.

Default Re: The Home Appliance thread

who has good recommendations for tool kits that are easily available in India?

I'm looking for 2 specific ones:
1. Home tool kit -- Something like the Bosch (which strangely i couldn't find so easily in mumbai)
2. Auto (Car+bike) tool kit -- A kit that has all the essential tools that can be used for a car or a bike.. most common tasks usually.

Would really appreciate some feedback on this.
