Hindware Atlantic Ondeo Evo i-Pro 15L Geyser Review: Design and Build

The Evo i-Pro boasts a sleek and modern design with its white enamel finish and compact squarish profile. This makes it suitable for installation in various bathroom spaces without feeling bulky. The outer body exudes a premium feel, and the sturdy construction inspires confidence in its longevity.

The tank boasts a high-grade titanium core shield, claimed to offer enhanced corrosion resistance compared to standard materials. It has a large LCD display, surrounded by tri-colour LED lights (red, green and blue).

It all looks futuristic, and provides a quick glance at important information, such as the heating status and whether it is connected to the Wi-Fi or not.

Hindware Atlantic Ondeo Evo i-Pro 15L Geyser Review: Heating performance

Equipped with a 2500W heating element, the Evo i-Pro promises fast heating times, ensuring hot water readily available whenever needed. Its intelligent thermostatic control maintains your desired temperature efficiently, preventing overheating and saving energy.

Hindware highlights its “O’Pro Technology,” which involves multiple layers of protection for the tank and heating element, including magnesium anode, sacrificial anode, and a vitreous enamel coating. This combination aims to extend the geyser’s lifespan and enhance safety.

Further, it has an “8 Bar pressure rating”, which is great even for high-rise buildings with high pressure motors.

I have been using this geyser for almost a year now, and we haven’t had to service the geyser for hard water sedimentation on its coil, nor have we faced any failures.

Its performance has been steady throughout the year, taking about 15 minutes to heat water from 32-degrees celsius to 75-degrees.

Hindware Atlantic Ondeo Evo i-Pro 15L Geyser Review: Capacity and Suitability

We received the geyser in its 15L capacity variant, but it’s also available in 25L. The smaller variant is suitable for small to medium-sized households with up to 3-4 users. It can adequately cater to daily hot water needs for showers, washing dishes, and other tasks.

However, larger families or those with high hot water demands should opt for the 25L capacity model.

Hindware Atlantic Ondeo Evo i-Pro 15L Geyser Review: Smart Features

What truly sets the Evo i-Pro apart is its smart functionality. You can connect it to the Hindware Smart app via Wi-Fi, allowing you to control and monitor the geyser remotely. This eliminates the need for physically going to the geyser to adjust settings, offering convenience and flexibility. Through the app, you can schedule heating times, adjust temperature, monitor energy consumption, and even receive real-time alerts for faults or maintenance needs.

This may look like an overkill, but it really isn’t once you get used to it. Thanks to the scheduling feature, I always have hot water ready early in the morning, even on days I oversleep. And because not everyone wants piping hot water, the ability to make miniscule temperature adjustments is a brilliant addition.

Simply put, this level of smart integration adds a layer of convenience and potentially contributes to energy savings through informed usage.

Hindware Atlantic Ondeo Evo i-Pro 15L Geyser Review: Safety and Warranty

Hindware prioritizes safety with the Evo i-Pro. It features an IPX1 rating, signifying protection against water splashes and ensuring safe operation in humid bathroom environments. Additionally, a built-in auto-cut-off function prevents overheating and dry heating, further enhancing safety. The geyser is backed by a 2-year comprehensive warranty and a 4-year warranty on the heating element.

Touch wood, so far I haven’t had the need to call for a repair, and I was lucky enough to have the geyser installed within 24 hours. But reviews on Amazon and Flipkart listings have been a bit bittersweet.

Hindware Atlantic Ondeo Evo i-Pro 15L Geyser Review: Energy Efficiency

Hindware specifies a BEE 5-star rating for the Evo i-Pro, indicating commendable energy efficiency. This translates to lower electricity bills and reduced environmental impact compared to less efficient models. The smart features, like scheduled heating and temperature control, also contribute to potential energy savings by optimizing usage.

Over the span of a year, thanks to the power monitoring graph on the app, I could understand how much my usage spiked during winters. I used a whopping 57.35kWh of electricity to keep myself warm.

Hindware Atlantic Ondeo Evo i-Pro 15L Geyser Review: Verdict

At Rs 10,499 on Flipkart (on the day of writing), the Evo i-Pro falls on the higher end of the price spectrum for 15L geysers. But, its smart features, advanced protection technologies, and premium build quality might justify the cost for some users who prioritize convenience, durability, and peace of mind.

At the end of it, IoT may seem niche to you as long as you start indulging with the tech on an everyday basis – there’s no going back once you live that life.

Further, living in a place like Delhi NCR can be a headache, because the water tends to be extremely hard, taking a toll on the heating coils of most geysers. The premium you pay on the Evo i-Pro pays itself within a couple of years. So if you can pony up the money, and get your priorities straight, this can be an excellent option for you.
