Metro’s revolutionary wetbacks overcome those ever increasing winter power bills for thousands of satisfied Metro owners. With the benefit of reduced power consumption and the availability of hot water during power cuts, a wetback will either boost or provide the majority of your households hot water requirements.

There are many conditions that influence the efficiency of a wetback system and it is beneficial to find a plumber/gasfitter who is experienced with wetback installation so that efficiencies are maximised. A licensed plumber/gasfitter is required to install a wetback system that will adhere to the ‘Heated Water Services’ standard AS/NZS 3500.

Most Metro wood fires can have wetbacks fitted to them. The R1 and R2 models are not wetback capable, but all other models within the range can be fitted with a wetback. A wetback can work as a valuable supplement to your hot water system and can help to reduce your hot water heating costs.

Basic installation information on how to correctly install a wetback in a Metro wood fire is detailed in the wetback installation sheets found here
