How long will a 19kg gas bottle last on a geyser?

The duration a 19kg gas bottle will last when used with a geyser depends on several factors, including the geyser’s energy efficiency, the frequency and duration of use, the temperature setting of the geyser, and the specific gas consumption rate of the geyser.

Typically, a 19kg gas bottle contains approximately 19 kilograms of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), which is commonly used for heating water in gas geysers. The energy content of LPG can vary, but it’s typically around 25-28 megajoules per kilogram.

To estimate how long a 19kg gas bottle will last when used with a geyser, you’ll need to know the gas consumption rate of the geyser, usually measured in megajoules per hour (MJ/h) or kilowatts (kW), and the average daily usage of hot water in your household.

For example, let’s say your gas geyser has a gas consumption rate of 11 MJ/h (or approximately 3 kW) and you use hot water for about 2 hours per day. Here’s how you can estimate the duration:

  1. Calculate the daily gas consumption:

   Gas consumption per day = Gas consumption rate of geyser × Hours of use per day

                          = 11 MJ/h × 2 hours

                          = 22 megajoules per day

  1. Estimate the number of days the gas bottle will last:

   Number of days = Gas bottle capacity (in MJ) / Gas consumption per day

                  = (19,000 MJ) / (22 MJ/day)

                  ≈ 863 days

Keep in mind that this is a rough estimate, and actual usage may vary depending on factors such as water usage patterns, geyser efficiency, and temperature settings. Additionally, it’s essential to have the gas bottle and geyser properly installed and maintained to ensure safety and efficiency. If you’re unsure about your specific situation, consider consulting with a qualified technician or plumber for more accurate advice.
