Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Cylinder Had to unblock the kitchen, bath and basin hot taps. All had blue foam blocking the feeds from inside the cylinder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hot water cyclinder Very well packaged plenty of protection. All connections clean no overfill with foam insulation. Only slight negative were the immersion heater boss connection is in line with the cold inlet, which on this install put it on the back side of the cupboard, just made it a bit awkward to wire once in position. Would not put me off purchasing again.

What is the difference between an indirect and a direct cylinder?

We have an old gravity fed water system dating from the 1930s and need to replace the boiler. Pipework is steel.
Asked by: SisterSledge
Direct is Immersion Heater (Electric) only, Indirect is fitted with a Heat Exchanger (Coil) for connection to a boiler. Regards

What are the requirements for a hot water cylinder base?

Can I mount it on a flat solid platform made of tongue and groove FBs, or does it have to be wood bearers with an air gap underneath?
Asked by: AJML38
The weight of the cylinder when full of water will be in the region of 180kg any surface should be capable of withstanding this weight. Regards

Has anyone found this tank to not hold heat as well as their previous tank?

My previous tank would hold water temp all day, so 6am-7:30am hot water cycle and tank would still supply hot water at 5pm, before evening cycle. This new tank with same settings is delivering look-warm water at best before next heating cycle runs.

Morning, The insulation thickness on cylinders such as this is 32mm Thick, this has increased over the past couple of years from 25mm in line with ERP requirements. This is not a question we have received from any other sources, in regard to this cylinder. The Heat Loss Factor on this cylinder is 2.25 kw per 234hr period. Your comment with regard to Luke warm water, may well have more to do with the heat source feeding heat to the coil, than the insulation. Regards

Can this tank be fitted with mains water pressure to instead of from a tank

Asked by: Gp050377
No! Copper vented cylinders are designed for working with tank fed system. The cylinder above is a Grade 3 designed work with a max 10mtr head (1 bar) Vented cylinders do not have the expansion facility or relief valves required by law. Only a True Unvented Cylinder can be connected to the mains supply, such as a Stelflow or Prostel. Regards

What does max working head mean?

Asked by: Materico
It is the distance from the base of the Header Storage Tank (Loft) to the base of the cylinder (Cold Feed) for example a Grade 3 Cylinder will have a 10 metre working head, Grade 2 a 15 Metre Head and a Grade 1 will have a 25 Metre Working Head. Regards
