"The 'future' of water heaters is the SPHP (super polymer high performance) technology that we launched this week. It is a step up in everything that you want in a water heater - such as, energy efficiency, pressure rating, and resistance to corrosion. Water quality in the outskirts of Chennai is 'aggressive', meaning corrosive of the tank. This is because the water supply in these places is not treated for the removal of chlorides and fluorides. For instance, a tank that takes 20 years to corrode in a treated-water area may have a life of less than a year in a place with untreated water quality supply. The new Racold offering, the SPHP, has polymer coating inside of the tank to prevent any chemical action between 'aggressive' water and the body of the tank."
