Michael :

hi you need water in the tank for sure

Michael :

as for the heat and lights to work separately may I have the full model # ***** your unit?

Customer:

dimplex model brg20

Michael :

thank you for that information

Michael :

unfortunately on that model there is no seperate switch for light only;-(

Customer:

thats a shame as i assumed you could do that

Customer:

can i use bottles water or does it have to be distilled

Michael :

it would be nice, and some of there older model did have this ability

Michael :

both water types will work but distilled is best to prevent mineral build up over time

Customer:

can i use bottled water instead of distilled also i assume fire is cutting out because i havnt put water in tank

Michael :

if you have water from your tap that doesnt have a lot of minerals that will be fine;-)

Michael :

yes you need water in the tank

Customer:
