Propex Malaga 5E Water Heater

Gas and Electric Water Heater

A high capacity water storage heater, the Propex Malaga 5 Water Heater is available either as a powerful, standard gas heater or is included with the added advantage of a 750 watt electric heating element (The Malaga E). Whichever version of the Propex Malaga 5 Water Heater you decide upon, you're guaranteed a product with a fast and efficient supply of hot water (so showering in tour vans or caravans will be a breeze).

This Propex Water Heater is also suitable for installation in boats used exclusively on Inland Waterways (i.e Class 1 and 2) so long as they're mounted in a suitable position. As the Malaga 5 Water Heater is also a room sealed appliance, it conforms to Boat Safety Requirements.

A Water Heater with Micro-Processor Controller Electronics

For accurate digital control of the safety functions and heater operations, the Malaga 5 Water Heater is equipped with the latest Propex electronics to provide you with complete ease of management. With a switch panel that features a 3 position switch with which to select power options (i.e gas only, gas and 230v etc.) and an LED that can indicate when the gas burner is operating as well as highlighting fault conditions, the Propex Malaga 5 Water Heater provides optimal usability and control.

  • Nice unit, with caveats

    Posted by Anton on 16th May 2023

    All is built in. All means all - this unit does not need an external non-return valve and an external drain valve.

    That would have been nice, but comes with caveats.

    The drain is off the pressure relief valve which is identical to the ones used on an European mains boiler.

    1. This means that you need to have access to it.
    2. It is not designed to fit a pipe. It is possible, but difficult.
    3. Hence, you need to choose a position where you can drill a suitable size hole under the valve position to drain off the water.That is not in the installation instructions.

    On the positive side, the fact that it does not need an external drain valve and a NRV simplifies the connections quite a bit.

  • nice looking unit
