The introduction of electric water heater worrying safety and quality – water heater, electric water heater – HC Network Appliance Industry-hc360
Easy to overlook the security risks
Learned that the national random sample of the water heater more than ten indicators were detected, but tests found that one of the main quality is that the internal wiring does not meet the requirements, mainly reflecting the internal wiring clutter in the apparatus, joints without insulation protection, the line does not have the anti-high temperature, moisture, anti-interference indicators. The purpose of these indicators is to prevent accidental damage to the circuit, causing electrical short circuit and generation of misuse such as functional or safety hazards.
Electric water heater is the second largest security risk bad ground, or ground assault charged and a leak. As has frequently occurred throughout the country in recent years, the water heater leakage wounding event, the China Consumer Association has for the National Consumers in 40 cities to issue a shock water heater market, “consumer alert”, explicitly, “When the consumer’s home security power conditions are not available or not safe and reliable grounding device, the operator should refuse to sell, refuse to install electric water heater, in order to truly reflect the most basic social responsibility of business. ” Since our family is not fully qualified electrical environment the situation there, so even meet the national standard of qualified water heater, it does not mean that the user has absolutely safe bathing environment. According to the CASE 33 cities combined results of the survey, Qi Cheng Chinese families over there are different levels of electrical safety hazards. This also shows that China’s current environment makes the most of the households use electric water heaters are a security risk.
Consumers talk about “power” the mere mention of
China Quality Around the complaint Rights Office and the local complaints stations in 28 complaints in 2006 the analysis showed that the electric water heater as hot spots around the complaints, the highest in the eighth largest merchandise complaints, complaints accounted for more than 4.25 %%, and showed a clear upward trend in the proportion of complaints. The goods in major cities across the country complained Heibang, the electric water heater are in the top ten complaints complaints goods are shocking.

Is well known, since water is conductive, the human body itself is a conductor, especially in the bath, even wearing slippers, insulation may be nearly zero, once the shock is difficult to help themselves. In recent years all over the country frequent the water heater leakage wounding event, let people talk about “electricity” discoloration.
In Baidu search “electric water heater leakage,” as many as 67 000 search results actually, random clicks, chilling.
