FAQs - Installation and Operation
it difficult to install Vulcan in my home?
Vulcan is designed as a do-it-yourself
product. It sits outside the pipe and you do not need to cut into the pipe. The
installation is very easy and takes approx. 10 minutes. No tools required.
do I know which size Vulcan is needed for
Please check the pipe diameter in the
area where you want to install Vulcan. Then choose the unit that is designed
for this size.
should I install Vulcan in my home?
Vulcan is mounted outside of the pipe
with no need to cut the pipe. It should be installed at the point where the
incoming water supply line is going into the house. Most of the time this is
close to the water meter. This way, a single Vulcan treats all the water pipes
in the house. European homes usually have a basement, so the main water pipe
sits somewhere there, inside the house.
Many homes allow access only outside
the house. This again is usually where the water meter is located. Vulcan is a
waterproof unit suitable for outdoor installation. We also offer a range of
additional features such as a solar power charger in case that there is no
power supply nearby.

Private homes are taken care of with
one unit that treats the whole house. In larger buildings or industrial settings,

systems, another smaller unit would go there.
