What's The Difference Between SUBEIS & AFOW?

What's The Difference Between SUBEIS & AFOW?

Some of our commercial clients will use multiple fire on water manifolds to create an impressive display such as this volcano!Our fire on water manifolds are the perfect compliment to any backyard waterfall, poolscape, or commercial display that craves a little magic! These above and underwater fire manifolds are capable of producing a flame set that will amp up the "wow factor" in any outdoor space, just like the picture seen to the right. In fact, some of our contractors will get more than one unit to create a display for their clientele that is out of this world! Constructed from stainless steel, these fire on water manifolds are built to last and ideal for freshwater situations only.

SUBEIS (Submersible Electronic Ignition System)

You may be wondering how an electrical box can be positioned underwater without all of the components being compromised? The electronically-controlled valve is sealed to prevent water leakage. This allows the manifold to be installed directly underwater, provided the feature in which it will reside is deep enough to fully submerse the control box and manifold. The SUBEIS is terrific for larger water bowls that are mounted on a very shallow base next to your in-ground pool, or in areas with limited access to plumbing.

AFOW (Automated Fire On Water)

This particular electronic ignition system requires the control valve box to be installed before the gas line feeds into the desired outdoor feature. It is important to know that the AFOW systems are not waterproof or rated for submersion; however, they should not be utilized near or in conjunction with saltwater. If you had a shallow fire and water bowl that was mounted on top of a pedestal, for example, this component would need to be situated outside of the pedestal (or inside, depending on the configuration of the piece), away from the water. This arrangement allows the homeowner to access the system for routine maintenance. In addition, the AFOW includes a pilot wire (available in 10, 15, or 20 feet) that you can easily run from the valve box, through your water feature, and to the igniter which will be above the surface of the water.
