Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap enough Value cylinder, £30 less than from my main plumbing trader supplier. Connections fitted perfectly. Cannot fault it. Comes in a box to help protect against damage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty! Faulty bowed immersion element, had to take it all out & replace with another new cylinder! Not the best tested cylinders as this would not have made it pass quality control checks, also have had a lot of rm cylinders with blue insulation in the tank itself which will block taps / showers etc so be carful & check connections & inner tank before fitting!

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.

Does the diameter of the cylinder stated inclued the insulation? is there a data sheet with the dimension of the cylinders?

Asked by: ServeanSell
Morning, The cylinder dimension shown is cylinder only, a lagging/insulation of 32mm thickness is then applied. Regards

What is the exact position (height from base) of the indirect coil input and output? So I know if it will match up with existing pipework. Thanks

Asked by: yarleyman
Morning, Cylinders are standard, manufactured for a Pumped System Only. The bottom primary connection is approximately 100mm from the base and centres approximately 300mm Regards

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
