I have a bosch 16h hydropower gas water system that seems tempermental in that sometimes it decides to create a spark to light the gas and at other times no spark with resultant cold water being drawn. What could be the problem as the system is only 4 years old

    Volts were 1.1 instead of 1.8. Gave it a tap and went up to 1.3 and started to ignite.

    Service cost are Dependant on the service companies need or greed. Repairing the problem would be more economical than a replacement. Shop around and ask for prices for the repair and then choose.

Need help with Bosch hydropower 13h tankless hot water system


when you turn on the hot water tap there is a pressure switch in the line that sends a signal to a gas solenoid to pass the gas and at the same time to the pizo to start the flame
I would have that pressure switched checked as it may be sticking ( internal contamination) or have dirty corroded points
as gas is involved I would suggest a gas technician do the jib
when you turn off the tap, that pressure switch is shut off so the gas is turned off at the solenoid and the pizo is stopped.

I have a 2nd hand Bosch HydroPower LPG hot water system and am trying to find a manual. do you have one or is it pretty straighforwward in terms of installation? Mike


I have just dug my manual out (16H) because mine is faulty. email me and I will photocopy it at work this week and email it back to you.

Installation should be pretty straightforward and the manual's not that in depth. There are however some sections on adjusting the gas and the like that you might want to read over.

Our Bosch 16H Hydropower shuts off 30 secs to a minute after heating has started. We have used a variety of settings and only when we have the lower dial on minimum (fully anticlock) and the slider above...


Hi John

The manual is very limited in information it said to check there is
  • high water flow going through your system
  • and check your gas settings is correct!
  • The slide adjustment is your gas flow, which regulates your temperature
  • I have also increase the the gas regulator, which increases the gas flow
I have also been told its not a good idea to have a water saving head on your shower as this restrict the water out put.
