  • Any system or device (exlcuding boilers) used for heating of water and including all its components and piping within one meter from the device.
  • Any geyser with a cylinder capacity greater than 300 litres and boilers must be specified in Section F – Machinery Breakdown.

  • These are the tubes or flat panels that absorb solar radiation for heating water.

As with all sections of the policy, the geyser section also has specific definitions. Let’s look at them:
