RM Indirect Copper Cylinder 900 x 450mm
Firstly, absolutely no problem with Screwfix staff. Bought and installed first cylinder and had great difficulty sealing lower, cold water inlet. Tried PTFE tape, Jointing Compound and LS X, all to no avail - joint always had constant drip. Eventually came to conclusion it was the factory fitted flange joint that was faulty.
Screwfix exchanged tank with no quibbles (although they did supply a bigger tank which wasn't immediately noticed and necessitated a return trip) which is now installed. Same joint still weeps but will hopefully seal over time.
This is a weak spot on the tank as you are always worried that you are going to over-tighten the 1" nipple which should be fitted as standard.

Great replacement HW cylender
Almost an exact replacement for an existing cylinder - all fittings identical and in same places so an easy swap

Bought this on a Friday morning and installed same day. Was called back to a leak on Saturday evening! Discovered the cylinder seam had failed. Took it back for a replacement and had to reinstall at my own cost on Sunday. Hence the poor reliability review. May be a one off or could be a quality issue....
