Gas Geyser Prices

Also known as gas water heaters, gas geysers do not have water reservoirs and heat the water as it runs through the unit. Prices of gas geysers are between R2400 to R9900

Since they work with gas, you don’t need an electrical supply for your gas geyser to work. Gas geysers are the most energy-efficient geysers available with capacities ranging from 5 litres to 20 litres.
