RadREST Hot Water System
Our RadREST Hot Water System is powered by electricity and has been designed to replace the existing water boiler and storage tank in your home; instantaneously, but only heating the water you actually use. Dependent on your system this can eliminate the need for a storage tank; which not only reduces the energy wasted in heating water which is then not used, but the absence of a storage tank and the consequential ‘standing water’ also eliminates the risk of legionnaires’ disease from a storage tank.
Although the RadREST Hot Water System can run independently as a “stand alone” unit, it has been specifically designed to work in conjunction with the REST Control Panel. As the manufacturer, we recommend that the system is not run without the REST Control Panel; however if you also have our Clear Heater System installed, a second separate Control Panel is not required – as both systems can be controlled from the same Control Panel unit.
Having both the Logicor RadREST Hot Water System and the REST Clear Heater System installed in your property may remove the need for gas in your home altogether (dependent on your requirements for cooking and other facilities). As a result, it also greatly reduces the risk of potential exposure to Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

As the manufacturer of the system, we recommend that the RadREST Hot Water System is not run without a REST Control Panel, as the Control Panel will enable the customer to monitor and change the settings of the new system; however if you are an existing Clear Heater System customer, or you are also having the Clear Heater System installed with the RadREST Hot Water System, a second separate REST Control Panel is not required.
Both systems can be controlled from the same Control Panel unit and connecting the Control Panel to Wi-Fi will enable automatic software updates via the internet, which will allow the RadREST Hot Water System to be added to an existing Control Panel. The RadREST Hot Water System is Bluetooth enabled and also communicates via the electrical ring main in your home or office.
A water scale inhibitor is supplied with all units unless specifically requested not to be.
Water hardness can vary from area to area and even from property to property; as the manufacturer of the system we recommend that in all instances all RadREST Hot Water System units should be mandatorily fitted with a water scale inhibitor, to maintain the performance of the system.
Safety Standards approved safety features include an anti-scald valve limiting the maximum output water temperature to 46° Celsius, thermal cut out preventing the unit allowing water above 72° Celsius to pass through it, multiple flow and temperature sensors all controlled from a bespoke minicomputer.
We expect our RadREST Hot Water System to last at least 20 years from the date of installation. The REST quality control and assurance systems and procedures ensure manufacturing to the highest standard. As the designers, developers and manufacturers of the system, our confidence in the RadREST Hot Water System is such that we offer a 20 year guarantee on the product.
In the UK the average energy spend per household totals approximately £1200 per year. The proportion of household energy used for water heating has increased over the last few years and now stands at approximately 18%*.
Dependent on your system, updating the way you heat your water by installing the RadREST Hot Water System could not only reduce the energy used to heat your water, but can also eliminate the risk of legionnaires’ disease. Having both the RadREST Hot Water System and the REST Clear Heater System installed in your property can also greatly reduce the risk of potential exposure to Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

Energy & Water Efficient: Compare installation and running costs
Heating water can be a major part of your energy bills. Do you know how much it costs to heat the water for a bath for example? Read on to find out how much you could be saving.
The InLine Hot Water System heats water about 43% cheaper than using a modern A-rated gas boiler.
Safety: How to prevent scalding
Building Regulations state that from 6th April 2010, all new-build homes across England and Wales after must have devices fitted to baths to limit the temperature of the water to 48°C. That temperature is still more than hot enough for domestic use, but it removes the potential for the most serious scald injuries to happen.
The InLine Hot Water System fully complies with the Building Regulations 2000, Approved Document G – Sanitation, hot water safety and water efficiency.
Control at your Fingertips
The control panel is pre-programmed to work out of the box but you can change the settings at any time with your own preferences. For example, you can change the name and temperature of each heater unit or assign heater units to work in named zones (e.g. all bathrooms).
The control panel is also equipped with Wifi capability to receive software updates via the internet and will soon have the ability to connect via your Smartphone or iPad.
The control panel is the ‘brain’ of both the Clear Heater System and the InLine Hot Water System. Existing Clear Heater customers will be able to use their current smart control panel to monitor and change the settings of the new system.
Automatic software updates via the internet will allow the RadREST Hot Water System to be added to an existing control panel.
The control panel communicates with the each heater unit via the electrical ring main in your home or office.
