VIH GB 180/2 S, VIH GB 210/2 S, VIH GB 260/2 S, and
VIH GB 310/2 S domestic hot water cylinders are
unvented, indirectly heated domestic hot water cylinders
designed for use with gas-fired wall-hung boilers as per
GB standards for hot water supply systems. The cylin-
ders work with the pressure of the water supply line and
do not need a cold water tank for their supply.
They are exclusively for the provision of hot potable
water to a temperature of 80°C and must be used only
for this purpose. The cylinders can be used in combina-
tion with a downstream gas-fired wall-hung boiler for
hot water production in accordance with GB standards.
Any other use or extended use is considered to be
improper.
The manufacturer/supplier is not liable for any claims
or damage resulting from improper use. The user alone
bears the risk.
Complying with the intended use of the unit also
includes observing the operating and installation
instructions and all other applicable documents and
adhering to the inspection and servicing conditions.

immersion heater may not be operated at the same time
as the gas-fired wall-hung boiler.
> If the gas-fired wall-hung boiler fails, switch the electric
immersion heater on using the switch (1).
> Once the gas-fired wall-hung boiler is in service again,
use the switch to switch the electric immersion heater
off.
4.3 Switching off hot water production
> Switch off the gas-fired wall-hung boiler (see operating
instructions for the gas-fired wall-hung boiler) to tem-
porarily switch off the heating and hot water system.
4.4 Frost protection
b
Caution!
Risk of damage due to frost!
If the cylinder is placed out of operation for
a relatively long period of time in an
unheated room (e.g. during a winter holi-
day), the cylinder must be completely
drained.
> Contact a competent person to drain the
cylinder.
If you are absent during a relatively long period when
there is a risk of frost, make sure that you leave the cen-
tral heating on and that the temperature in the cylinder
room and in all other rooms is kept above freezing.
4.5 Cleaning the cylinder
> Clean the outside of the cylinder only with a damp cloth,
using soapy water if it is especially dirty.
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents or solvents (any
type of scouring agent, petroleum etc.) since they can
damage the cladding and the cylinder fixtures.
4.6 Temporarily taking the cylinder out of service
b
Caution!
Risk of damage as a result of the cylin-
der freezing!
Frost protection and monitoring devices are
only active while the boiler is connected up
to the power supply.
> Make sure that the cylinder cannot be
damaged if there is a frost.
> Temporarily take the cylinder out of service by switching
the boiler off.
4 Operation
Operating instructions for uniSTOR 0020111106_00 9
4.7 Energy-saving tips
Appropriate hot water temperature
The warm water should only be heated up to the extent
that is necessary for use. Any further heating results in
unnecessary power consumption and hot water temper-
atures of more than 60 ºC also lead to increased lime
scale production.
Run circulation pumps only if needed
Circulation pumps do indeed increase convenience when
it comes to hot water production. But they also need
power. And circulating hot water that is not used cools
off when passing through pipes and then needs to be
reheated. Therefore, circulation pumps are to be oper-
ated only when hot water is actually needed for the
household. Individual timer programs can be set using
autotimers which are already installed or can be retrofit-
ted in most circulation pumps. Weather compensators
often have ancillary functions for controlling circulation
pump timings. Consult your heating specialist company.
4.8 Fault finding
What do I do if ...
Fault Remedy
… fluid is dripping from the system? If possible, collect the fluid in a bucket and inform a competent
person.
… the controller issues a message telling me the sensor is faulty
or there is a cable break?
Inform a competent person.
... the cylinder is not providing sufficient hot water? Check that the hot water temperature is set correctly on the con-
troller (¬ section 4.1, recommended value of approx. 45 ºC) and
that the gas-fired wall-hung boiler is working. If the settings are
correct, the cylinder may be calcified. Then: Inform a competent
person.
... a thermal cut-out trips? Inform a competent person.
... water flows from the expansion relief valve? Inform a competent person.

petent person is a prerequisite for ensuring that the cyl-
inder is permanently ready for operation, reliable, and
has a long working life.
It is important that your hot water cylinder is serviced
annually.
We recommend entering into a maintenance agreement.
e
Danger!
Risk of death from electric shock!
Improperly executed work on the cylinder
can result in a risk to life and limb.
> Never try to rectify cylinder faults your-
self.
> Contact a competent person to rectify all
faults.

2.2 Intended use
Vaillant cylinders are constructed using state-of-the-art
technology in accordance with recognised safety regula-
tions.
Nevertheless, there is still a risk of injury or danger of
death to the operator or others or of damage to the unit
and other property in the event of improper use or use
for which the unit is not intended.
Vaillant cylinders are not intended for use by persons
(including children) with physical, sensory or mental
impairments or who have inadequate experience and/or
knowledge, unless they are supervised by a person
responsible for their safety or have been given instruc-
tions by this person regarding the operation of the unit.
Children must be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the unit.

VIH GB 180/2 S, VIH GB 210/2 S, VIH GB 260/2 S, and
VIH GB 310/2 S domestic hot water cylinders are
unvented, indirectly heated domestic hot water cylinders
designed for use with gas-fired wall-hung boilers as per
GB standards for hot water supply systems. The cylin-
ders work with the pressure of the water supply line and
do not need a cold water tank for their supply.
They are exclusively for the provision of hot potable
water to a temperature of 80 °C. They may only be used
for this purpose. The cylinders can be used in combina-
tion with a gas-fired wall-hung boiler for hot water pro-
duction in accordance with GB standards.
Any other use or extended use is considered to be
improper. Any direct commercial or industrial use is also
deemed to be improper.
The manufacturer/supplier is not liable for any claims
or damage resulting from improper use. The user alone
bears the risk.
Complying with the intended use of the unit also
includes observing the operating and installation
instructions and all other applicable documents and
adhering to the inspection and servicing conditions.
Improper use of any kind is prohibited!
At the end of these instructions there is a commission-
ing report which you must fill in and hand over to the
operator.
All installers should have a current ID card and registra-
tion number. The cylinder must be installed by a compe-
tent person approved at the time by the Health and
Safety Executive to the prevailing standards, installation
book and building regulations at the time of installation.
2.3 General safety instructions
Installation, commissioning-up, and maintenance
Installation and adjustment as well as service, mainte-
nance and repair must be carried out by a competent
person approved at the time by the Health and Safety
Executive and be in accordance with the relevant
requirements of the Local Authority, Building Regula-
tions, Building Regulations (Scotland), Building Regula-
tions (Northern Ireland), and the bye-laws of the local
Water Undertaking.
All electrical wiring must be carried out by a competent
electrician and be in accordance with the current I.E.E.
Wiring Regulations.
> Make sure that the system has been planned in
accordance with technical regulations and all applicable
planning standards.
Cylinder safety information
Following an inspection, it was ascertained that this
product complies with the building regulations for closed
hot water cylinder systems and must not be changed or
rebuilt in any way.
> When replacing parts, only original replacement parts
from Vaillant Ltd. may be used.
The installation must be approved in accordance with
the building regulations.
> Installation plans must be disclosed to the relevant
authorities.
Important:
As stipulated in the manual "Handling Operations Regu-
lations 1992", the weight of the unit exceeds that which
should be lifted by one person alone.
Prior to assembly, store the cylinder in an upright posi-
tion in a dry place.
Without potential equalisation, life-threatening voltage
from the electric immersion heater can reach the piping
and water taps.
> Earth the electric immersion heater.
If the domestic hot water cylinder is connected with
pipes made of non-metallic materials and is not earthed,
corrosion damage can occur.
> Earth the domestic hot water cylinder for potential equa-
lisation and to protect against overvoltage.
> If using non-metallic pipes in the water circuit, make sure
that they are designed by the manufacturer for conti-
nuous operation at 70 °C and operation by the hour at
temperatures of up to 95 °C.
> Always use a suitable open-end wrench (spanner) to tigh-
ten or undo threaded connections. Do not use pipe wren-
ches, extensions, etc.
Safety instructions and regulations 2
6 Installation and maintenance instructions for uniSTOR 0020111105_00
If the water does not meet the requirements of The
Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations 2000 (Amend-
ment) Regulations 2007, corrosion damage may occur
on the cylinder.
> Only use the cylinder to heat potable water.
Electric potential equalisation
If you use an electric immersion heater in the cylinder,
the external voltage may build up electrical potential in
the water which can result in the electrochemical corro-
sion of the electric immersion heater.
> Make sure that both the hot water and cold mains inlets
on the cylinder itself are connected to the earth line by
means of an earth cable.
> You must also make sure that the electric immersion
heater is connected to the earth line via the earthing ter-
minal.
Preventing frost damage
You should not turn the gas-fired wall-hung boiler off
completely so that you can still use all of the safety
functions for your heating system. If you want to take
the unit out of operation for a relatively long period of
time in an unheated room at risk from frost, you must
completely drain the cylinder.
Avoiding damage caused by leaks
If there are leaks in the pipework, close off the cold
water stop valve on the safety assembly and notify
a competent person to rectify the leaks.
Preventing damage due to unauthorised changes
to the unit
Changes to the supply lines, relief valve termination, and
expansion relief valve may only be carried out by a com-
petent person!
Avoiding burns and scalds
Install a hot water thermostat mixer in the system
to protect against scalding.

paying attention to the following:
– The tundish discharge pipe must be installed with
a minimum downward slope of 1:200 and must end
in a safe and visible place.
– The installation surface must be flat and capable
of bearing the weight of the full cylinder.
– The installation site must not be at risk of frost.
If necessary, install a frost protection thermostat.
– The control system for the installed cylinder thermostat
beneath the front plate must be easily accessible to the
operator.
– There must be sufficient space for mounting, maintai-
ning and replacing the electric immersion heater.
– The floor must be even.
– There must be sufficient space for installing, maintaining
and replacing the expansion vessel.
> Choose a cylinder installation site that allows the potable
water and heating lines to be laid in an appropriate man-
ner.

a
Danger!
Risk of injuries and damage
due to improper installation!
Improper installation can impede the opera-
tional safety of the unit.
> Only a competent person may install and
commission the unit.
This person takes responsibility for
making sure that the unit is installed and
commissioned for the first time correctly
and in accordance with regulations.
a
Danger!
Risk of burns from lines!
There is a risk of burns from system pipes
without thermal insulation. Energy losses
also occur in such cases.
> Provide all system pipes with thermal
insulation.
> Use screw connections to close all supply
lines.
b
Caution!
Risk of damage resulting from improper
use and/or unsuitable tools!
Improper use and/or unsuitable tools may
result in material damage (e.g. gas or water
leaks).
> Always use a suitable open-ended span-
ner to tighten or undo threaded connec-
tions.
> Do not use pipe wrenches, extensions,
etc.
b
Caution!
Risk of damage from leaks!
Mechanical stress on supply lines can result
in leaks and thus damage to the heat pump.
> Avoid mechanical stress on supply lines!
5.1 Installing pipes for the reheating circuit
> Make sure that the pipes in the reheating circuit between
the gas-fired wall-hung boiler and cylinder are as short
as possible. Use copper piping with a minimum diameter
of 22 mm.
A heating pump is installed in all Vaillant gas-fired wall-
hung boilers (apart from the ecoTEC plus 400 with open
ventilation). If you are using the cylinder with another
gas-fired wall-hung boiler as per GB standards, you may
have to install a suitable heating pump in the reheating
circuit.
Installing the two port motorised valve
1
Fig. 5.1 Two port motorised valve
The two port motorised valve prevents the cylinder from
overheating.
> Install the two port motorised valve (1) supplied with the
cylinder in the flow line (A ¬ fig. 3.1) of the gas-fired wall-
hung boiler.
> Note the direction of flow, which is marked with arrows.
i
The two port valve must only be installed hori-
zontally and with the valve head facing upwards
(¬ fig. 5.1).

Where possible, avoid installing a circulation line, since
a circulation line results in higher energy consumption.
i
If you are not using the secondary return,
this must be properly closed off with the cap
included in delivery.
i
If you are installing a circulation line, an addi-
tional expansion vessel may be required in
certain circumstances.
If the installation of a circulation line is required, keep
circulation operations to a minimum by only using circu-
lation mode when required for demand and temperature
reasons.
The cylinder has a connection with a 15 mm diameter
for a second circulation line.
> Connect a WRAS-approved circulation pump (4)
with a non-return valve to the secondary return.
> Connect the circulation line (3) to the hot water pipe (2).
5.3 Installation of cold mains inlet
5.3.1 Pressure in cold mains inlet
The efficiency of an unvented cylinder depends on the
available pressure in the cold mains inlet and the flow
rate. To obtain optimum cylinder output, there must be
a suitable cold mains inlet, i.e. the measured static line
pressure must be at least 2.0 bar. A corresponding flow
rate of at least 20-25 l/min must be available.
i
The pressure in the cold mains inlet will be
reduced at times of high consumption. Thus,
measurements should be taken at such times.
The cylinder still works satisfactorily with a pressure
below 2 bar but the flow rate is reduced. If the pressure
is below 1 bar, you should not install an unvented cylin-
der. Vaillant Ltd. can provide information on alternative
hot water supply systems.

that you are able to connect the 15 mm connection (6) of
the expansion relief valve (7) with the tundish. Note the
direction of flow, which is marked on the safety assembly
with arrows.
i
The safety assembly must be installed horizon-
tally with the expansion relief valve facing
upwards (¬ fig. 5.4) in order to prevent the
build-up of dirt.
b
Caution!
Risk of damage to the cylinder as a
result of excess pressure!
Excess pressure can cause the cylinder to
burst.
> Make sure that the expansion relief valve
outlet is not covered or closed.
> Mount the discharge pipe of the expansion relief valve
with a constant slope to the outside. The discharge pipe
must finish at a safe and visible point where there is no
danger of it freezing up and where it poses no risk of
injury to persons.
> Actuate the expansion relief valve regularly to prevent
calcification.
> Connect the cylinder to the cylinder connection (4).
> For the pipe from the main stop valve of the building to
the cylinder, use copper piping with a diameter of at
least 22 mm to ensure that the cylinder is as efficient as
possible. This is particularly important for installations
with a balanced cold water inlet (3).
> Mount the safety assembly in the cold mains inlet on the
cylinder.
> If necessary, establish the connection to the cold water
inlet (3) with pressure compensation of the safety
assembly.
> Depending on the fittings used and the type of the draw-
off points, it may be necessary to install a backflow pre-
venter in the pressure-controlled cold water inlet.
i
If you mount the safety assembly above the cyl-
inder, you do not need to drain the cylinder in
order to maintain the safety assembly. Make
sure there is sufficient space for maintenance
and connection of the discharge pipe of the
expansion relief valve.
When the discharge pipes are connected, the expansion
relief valve may not be more than 600 mm away from
the temperature and pressure relief valve (¬ fig. 5.5).
5.3.3 Mounting the expansion vessel
The Vaillant domestic hot water cylinder is delivered
with an external expansion vessel.
Connect this expansion vessel to the installed safety
assembly as follows:
> Screw the expansion vessel directly to the safety assem-
bly via the provided connection (5) or
> Connect the expansion vessel with the safety assembly
via a copper pipe or suitable hose line. Make sure the
expansion vessel is supported sufficiently.
> Use the supplied wall bracket if you want to mount the
expansion vessel to a wall.
i
In regions with high water pressure (4 bar or
more), you can also connect the mixer tap for a
bath or shower to the cold water inlet with pres-
sure compensation (3) of the safety assembly.
This ensures that the hot and cold water supply
to the mixer tap have the same pressure. You
should install the cold water supply for all other
connections using a T-piece before the safety
assembly in the cold mains inlet to the cylinder.
Installation 5
18 Installation and maintenance instructions for uniSTOR 0020111105_00
5.3.4 Mounting the drain valve
> Mount a drain valve (10) (¬ fig. 3.2) as low as possible
between the cylinder and the safety assembly in the cold
mains inlet.
The drain valve must be provided by the customer.
We recommend mounting a hose which reaches about
1 m under the base of the cylinder to the outlet of the
drain valve.
5.3.5 Laying the pipes to the tundish
> Connect the temperature and pressure relief valve and
the expansion relief valve to the tundish using
15 mm piping.
> Lay the tundish discharge pipe (¬ section 5.4).
i
The tundish discharge pipes must be laid at a
sufficient distance from electrical components in
accordance with valid building regulations.
5.4 Installation of discharge pipe

Fig. 5.5 Typical drainage installation
The discharge connections of the temperature and pres-
sure relief valve and the expansion relief valve must be
connected to the supplied tundish via 15 mm copper pip-
ing. The tundish should be mounted vertically, as close
to the cylinder as possible and not more than 600 mm
from the connection of the temperature and pressure
relief valve. It must be mounted in the same room as the
cylinder at a sufficient distance from the electrical com-
ponents. The discharge pipes from the temperature and
pressure relief valve and the expansion relief valve can
be joined above the tundish using a T-piece.
The discharge pipe from the 22 mm connection of the
tundish must be laid using copper piping with a diameter
of at least 22 mm to a safe and visible discharge point.
There must be a vertical section of pipe at least 300 mm
long beneath the tundish before any bends or elbows in
the pipework. If the total resistance of the discharge
pipe exceeds the values specified in Tab. 5.1 below, you
must increase the diameter of the piping. When install-
ing the discharge piping, you must observe Directive G3
(¬ section 2.2).

ture and pressure relief valve outlet size
5 Installation
Installation and maintenance instructions for uniSTOR 0020111105_00 19
Worked example
The example below is for a G1/2 temperature relief valve
with a discharge pipe (D2) having 4 No. 22 mm elbows
and length of 7 m from the tundish to the point of dis-
charge.
From Table 5.1:
Maximum resistance allowed for a straight length of
22 mm copper discharge pipe (D2) from a G1/2 tempera-
ture relief valve is: 9.0 m.
Subtract the resistance for 4 No. 22 mm elbows at 0.8 m
each = 3.2 m
Therefore the maximum permitted length equates to:
5.8 m, which is less than the actual length of 7 m there-
fore calcu late the next largest size.
Maximum resistance allowed for a straight length of
28 mm pipe (D2) from a G1/2 temperature relief valve is:
18 m.
Subtract the resistance of 4 No. 28 mm elbows at 1.0 m
each = 4.0 m.
Therefore the maximum permitted length equates to:
14 m.
As the actual length is 7 m, a 28 mm (D2) copper pipe
will be satisfactory.
A suitable place for the end of the discharge pipe is, for
example, beneath a fixed grille above the odour seal in a
gully with a siphon. Low discharge pipes, for example up
to 100 mm above external surfaces such as car and
other parking spaces, grasslands, etc. can be used pro-
vided that they are secured by a wire fence or some-
thing similar to prevent children from coming into con-
tact with the waste water and provided that the system
is not visible. You must not install any valves or stop
cocks in the discharge pipe.
> Make sure that the discharge pipe from the tundish to
the drain has a constant downward incline of at least
1:200.
The discharge pipe from the pressure relief valve of the
Vaillant gas-fired wall-hung boiler can be connected to
the horizontal discharge pipe of the cylinder behind the
tundish using a T-piece.

Fig. 5.6 High drain connection
The method illustrated in fig. 5.6 is allowed provided
that no-one inside or outside the building is endangered
by the discharge point.
Examples of points to consider when deciding whether
a location is suitable for the high drain:
– The possibility (taking into account the effect of the
wind) that a person might be located in the area where
the water escapes, and, if this is the case, whether the
water is sufficiently cooled by that point to pose no dan-
ger. Thermal conductivity of the structure's surface, cli-
matic conditions and location and orientation of the
discharge pipe may or may not have an effect on redu-
cing the temperature of the discharge water.
– The position of windows and other openings.
– The probability of prams being parked under the drain.
– The resistance of the surface to hot water.
– The possibility of ice forming if the water is
discharged onto paths.

6.1 Flushing the reheating circuit
Detailed recommendations for the water circuit can be
found in BS 6798 and BS 5449: Part 1 (for central heat-
ing systems with both small and the smallest pipe
width).
Pipes which do not form part of the usable heating sur-
face must be insulated in order to prevent heat losses
and possible freezing. Pipe insulation is particularly
important if you are installing pipes under the roof or
in open areas under the floor.
Discharge valves must be mounted in easily accessible
locations, so that the entire system, including the boiler
and hot water system, can be discharged. Discharge
valves must have a nominal size of 1/2 inch BSP and
comply with BS 2879.
Copper pipes which comply with BS 2871: Part 1 for
water-carrying pipes must be used. All soldered connec-
tions in the private hot water pipe system must be made
with lead-free soldering material.
b
Caution!
Risk of material damage as a result
of deposits in the unit or system!
Cleaning agents can result in deposits and
follow-on damages.
> Use a suitable cleaning agent in
accordance with this instruction manual.
> Never leave cleaning agents in the sys-
tem for longer than 24 hours.
> Completely remove the cleaning agents
from the system by flushing it tho-
roughly.
All cleaning must be performed before installing the new
boiler and must comply with BS 7593. Information on
the use of cleaning agents for the system can be
obtained from Sentinel, Betz Dearborn Ltd. Widnes,
Cheshire, WA8 8UD. Tel: 0151 420 9595, or Fernox, Alpha

6.2 Water treatment
b
Caution!
Risk of material damage due to unsuita-
ble water!
Unsuitable water can lead to deposits and
corrosion damage in the cylinder and in the
hot water circuit.
> Use only potable water with a chloride
content of below 250 mg/l in the hot
water circuit.
b
Caution!
Risk of material damage as a result of
enriching the heating water with unsuita-
ble frost or corrosion protection agents!
Frost and corrosion protection agents can
cause changes to the seals, noises during
heating mode and possibly subsequent
damage.
> Do not use any unsuitable frost and cor-
rosion protection agents.
Mixing additives with the heating water can result in
material damage. However no incompatibility with Vail-
lant units has been detected with proper use of the fol-
lowing products over a long period.

6.4 Filling the central heating system
The system can be filled using the built-in filling loop
(ecoTEC plus combi boiler only) or via a separate filling
connection that is fitted at an easily accessible location
in the heating circuit. The filling loop must be removed
once filling is complete. If a temporary connection is not
possible due to legal regulations, a closed system filling
pump with a buffer tank must be used.
The heating system is not automatically supplied from
the hot water side of the central heating. Alternative
procedures for filling closed systems can be found in
BS 5449.

34 Installation and maintenance instructions for uniSTOR 0020111105_00
Fault Cause Remedy
The cylinder cools down at night. One-pipe circulation in the case of
short tube networks with low pressure
loss.
Install a non-return valve
(as close as possible to the cylinder).
Primary heating is not working. The gas-
fired wall-hung boiler runs for a short
time, goes off, and then comes back on
again. This is repeated until the cylinder
is at its target temperature.
1. Air in the reheating heat exchanger. Vent the reheating heat exchanger.
2. Heat exchanger surface area too
small.
Compare the data provided by the boiler manufac-
turer with the data for the cylinder. It may be possi-
ble to solve the problem by setting a higher flow
temperature on the gas-fired wall-hung boiler.
Only cold or lukewarm water comes out
of the draw-off points.
1. The cold and hot water draw offs on
the cylinder have been mixed up.
Turn off the cold water supply, then let water flow out
via the hot water draw off. Only a few litres of water
flow out if the connection is set up correctly. The hot
water withdrawal pipe intake is then in the air space
and further draining is not possible. If it is possible to
empty the entire cylinder via the hot water draw off,
the connections have been laid incorrectly. Change
the connections!
2. Hot water thermostat mixer set too
low.
Increase the setting.
3. Heating insufficient; gas-fired wall-
hung boiler does not reheat.
External control device faulty.
Air in the reheating
heat exchanger.
Cylinder sensor faulty.
Check whether the gas-fired wall-hung boiler
is working.
Check whether the external control device is working.
Check that the two port valve is in the DHW position.
Replace the two port valve.
Vent the reheating heat exchanger.
Check the thermal cut-out and repair the fault.
Replace the cylinder thermostat.
Water flows out of the expansion relief
valve (only when heating up).
Dirt on the valve seat of the expansion
relief valve.
Check the seat of the expansion relief valve and
repair the fault.
Pressure reducing valve faulty. Check whether the pressure behind the pressure
reducing valve is lower than 3.0 bar. If so, replace the
pressure reducing valve.
Expansion vessel faulty. Check the pressure in the expansion vessel. If the
pressure is insufficient, re-establish the pressure and
check whether the expansion vessel maintains it.
Expansion relief valve faulty. If the pressure is normal, replace the expansion relief
valve.
Water flows out of the temperature and
pressure relief valve (only when heating
up).
Dirt on the valve seat of the tempera-
ture and pressure relief valve.
Check the seat of the temperature and pressure relief
valve and repair the fault.
The temperature control system for
the gas-fired wall-hung boiler is faulty.
If water is only escaping when being heated up by the
gas-fired wall-hung boiler, check the temperature
control system of the gas-fired wall-hung boiler.
Check whether the two port valve switches to the
heating position when the cylinder temperature is
reached.
Cylinder sensor faulty. Check the cylinder sensor and corresponding thermal
cut-out, replace the cylinder sensor if necessary, and
repair the thermal cut-out fault.
Temperature and pressure relief valve
faulty.
If water is only escaping when being heated up by the
electric immersion heater, replace the temperature
and pressure relief valve.
Electric immersion heater faulty. Check the temperature sensor of the electric immer-
sion heater and the corresponding thermal cut-out
and replace the electric immersion heater if neces-
sary.

Intended use

Vaillant cylinders are constructed using state-of-the-art technology in accordance with recognised safety regulations. Nevertheless, there is still a risk of injury or danger of death to the operator or others or of damage to the unit and other property in the event of improper use or use for which the unit is not intended. Vaillant cylinders are not intended for use by persons (including children) with physical, sensory or mental impairments or who have inadequate experience and/or knowledge, unless they are supervised by a person responsible for their safety or have been given instructions by this person regarding the operation of the unit. Children must be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the unit. Vaillant uniSTOR VIH GB 120/2 S, VIH GB 155/2 S, VIH GB 180/2 S, VIH GB 210/2 S, VIH GB 260/2 S, and VIH GB 310/2 S domestic hot water cylinders are unvented, indirectly heated domestic hot water cylinders designed for use with gas-fired wall-hung boilers as per GB standards for hot water supply systems. The cylinders work with the pressure of the water supply line and do not need a cold water tank for their supply. They are exclusively for the provision of hot potable water to a temperature of 80°C and must be used only for this purpose. The cylinders can be used in combination with a downstream gas-fired wall-hung boiler for hot water production in accordance with GB standards. Any other use or extended use is considered to be improper. The manufacturer/supplier is not liable for any claims or damage resulting from improper use. The user alone bears the risk. Complying with the intended use of the unit also includes observing the operating and installation instructions and all other applicable documents and adhering to the inspection and servicing conditions. Improper use of any kind is prohibited! 2.3 Basic safety instructions

Cylinder safety information This product has been assessed and found to comply with the requirements of the Building Regulations for unvented hot water storage systems and must not be altered or modified in any way.
> In the event of parts replacement, use only genuine spare parts supplied by Vaillant Ltd. > You must also observe the guidelines of the local water utility companies.

If the water does not meet the requirements of The Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations 2000 (Amendment) Regulations 2007, corrosion damage may occur to the cylinder.
> Only use the cylinder to heat potable water.

Preventing frost damage You should not turn the gas-fired wall-hung boiler off completely so that you can still use all of the safety functions for your heating system. If you want to take the unit out of operation for a relatively long period of time in an unheated room at risk of frost, you must completely drain the cylinder. Avoiding damage caused by leaks If there are leaks in the pipework, close off the cold water stop valve on the safety assembly and notify a competent person so that they can rectify the leaks. Preventing damage due to unauthorised changes to the unit Changes to the supply lines, relief valve termination, and expansion relief valve may only be carried out by a competent person!
> The installed safety devices must always be used.

Avoiding damage resulting from the closing of the expansion relief valve Never shut off the expansion relief valve or relief valve termination.

Installation, commissioning, and maintenance Installation and adjustment as well as service, maintenance and repair must be carried out by a competent person approved at the time by the Health and Safety Executive and be in accordance with the relevant requirements of the Local Authority, Building Regulations, Building Regulations (Scotland), Building Regulations (Northern Ireland), and the bye-laws of the local Water Undertaking.
