I have a vulcan freeloader 260 gas, how do i make sure it has water in the tank


The old freeloader is feed by cold at the bottom and the hot feed comes out the top. Basically if you are getting hot water out the hot tap (or any water out the hot tap) it has water in it. If you have any concerns post a new fault, I will keep a look out for it. These are great heaters, well worth looking after.
