Hi, I am interested in 707 alphine. Need to replace a spoilt heater. Anyone knows how much does it cost? Thanks.
Hi, I've been asking around today & found brands like 707, Mistral, Alpha. A old salesman told me to get heaters with copper in tank compared to plastic as heating is faster & not prone to leak. Amongst this 3 brands, 707 & Mistral is copper while Alpha is plastic.
Asked a shop (Soon Lin Building, corner shop, along Syed Alwi Road) & their 707 Compact $165, Alpine $185 & Protek $195, cash & carry, very good price as all other shops are selling above $200.
I called up *spam @ AMK, they only have Compact & Prestine, both above $200, so they're not cheap at all. Goh ah bee's line is always engaged.
I went a shop to ask bout AMASCO & after some conversation, e lady asked me to go get 707 cos 707 confirmed e best, she said...
Then i went to Mustafa & e sales lady there seems pretty knowledgable as she mentioned Mistral has 2 heating elements which is better, while 707 is a bit more ex than other brands due to their long standing branding but still e most trustworthy. But 707 sold there are all above $200.
Ok, here's something i wanna share with u guys... U know those models with 2 knobs (1 is with 1, 2 & 3 heat switch while e other provides a range), the knob that provides range is actually what controls the water flowing into e heater, cooler (water pressure bigger means more powerful water), hotter (water pressure smaller means less powerful water). So as to say those with only a single knob will come with a water pressure regulator to be fixed outside in between e inlet & e tubing, to control water pressure. Those 707 with double knobs have this regulator fixed inside e heater thus having 2 knobs.
My question to all e salesperson dun seem to give me a satisfied answer... Can i have both powerful water pressure & very hot water at e same time? If u realised, by turning down yr water pressure e water coming out is getting hotter & vice versa... so i asked e Mustafa sales lady, can e mistral 909i, a single knob (ranging) give me godd water pressure throughout if i dun fix e external water regulator? She say can...
So my dilemma now is to get e 707 protek $195 or Mistral 909i $129... both e copper heating element
