Exploring Solo vs Nexus INTU Tanks: – let’s compare!

Solo vs

Instant hot water tanks have revolutionised the way we access hot water in our homes and offices. In this blog post, we will compare two popular models: the Solo Tank and the Nexus Tank. Additionally, we will briefly touch upon the Apex Tank, an older model that is still available until stocks last.

Solo Tank:

INTU Solo Heater Tank

The Solo Tank is a straightforward, user-friendly option with a simple on/off power button. It boasts an instant filtered 98-degree water supply with a 2.4-litre capacity. The compact design (H284 x W188 x D188 mm) makes it an ideal space-saving solution. The tank’s initial quick heating time of 6-7 minutes from cold and a rapid 1-minute reheat time ensure a prompt and efficient hot water supply.

Nexus Tank:

INTU Nexus Digital Heater Tank

The Nexus Tank takes the instant hot water experience to the next level with its digital touchscreen display and multiple temperature settings ranging from 45 to 98 degrees. Like the Solo, it provides instant filtered 98-degree water with a 2.4-litre capacity. The dimensions (H285 x W178 x D245 mm) offer a slimmer design, potentially fitting better in certain spaces.

The Apex Tank, while similar to the Nexus in terms of specifications, is an older model with older technology and design.
