How An Indirect Water Heater Is Made

The SuperStor Indirect Water Heater by HTP is one of the most reputable indirect water heaters on the market today. With its industry leading lifetime warranty and high quality construction, it's no surprise people having been choosing this indirect for more than 25 years, making it the #1 selling indirect in the Country!

But have you ever wondered how it's made? Take a look at this brief video to learn more about the quality and innovation that goes into making the SuperStor Indirect Water Heater.

The SuperStor Ultra Indirect Water Heater draws energy from a boiler and thus does not need its own heat source. Hot boiler water flows through an internal heat exchanger in the tank, heating the domestic water. The SuperStor Ultra boasts 3-5 times more recovery than conventional gas-fired or electric water heaters.

More reason why you should choose the SuperStor Ultra Indirect Water Heater
  • Low energy costs – when used in conjunction with an HTP high-efficiency boiler, operating costs decrease even further
  • Appropriate for both residential and commercial applications – available in seven models (ranging from 20 to 119 gallons)
  • Low standby losses – the tank loses only ½ degree Fahrenheit per hour, thanks to 2” of environmentally safe foam insulation
  • Virtually maintenance free operation – the simple design of the heat exchanger eliminates the need for costly scheduled maintenance services
  • Installation flexibility – can be linked to a boiler using either a zone valve or a circulated pump
  • Quality construction – an extremely durable cupronickel heat exchanger boasts excellent heat transfer properties and resists corrosion, while the robust 316L stainless steel tank eliminates the need for anode rods
  • Aesthetically pleasing – the attractive and durable silver plastic jacket ensures a rustproof finish, even in moist environments
  • Limited lifetime warranty – covered by the industry’s strongest protection plan

A Commitment To Water Conservation and Sustainability

An extensive product offering for over 30 years that incorporates low-flow outlets, adjustable metering cartridges, and most recently our line of HyTronic™ sensor-operated faucets, is evidence of Chicago Faucets’ commitment to water conservation. All of these products help you to conserve water by limiting the flow rate and controlling operation time. In addition, Chicago Faucets is committed to conservation and sustainability in our manufacturing processes, with an objective to operate clean, safe and energy-efficient production with optimized logistics in terms of energy consumption, emissions and packaging.

Our HyTronic line of faucets is designed for easy installation and to conserve water on two fronts. First, it reduces consumption (but not performance) through the utilization of a .5 GPM pressure compensating outlet device. Second, HyTronic is designed to provide precise electronic metering that allows you to easily adjust cycle time to reduce water usage. Simple installation, combined with these water saving features, makes it easy to be green… and sophisticated.
