"It's hard to get exceited about a hot water cylinder jacket but at the end of the day you should as it will save you money year in year out with minimal investment for what this jacket costs. It's quick and easy to fit and you'll start reaping the bennefits instantly."
"Wanted to improve efficiency in the home and fitting a cylinder jacket is one of the cheapest and most effective things you can do. Found Screwfix had the cheapest price for this. Simple to fit and hopefully we will now notice a reduction in our energy costs."
"It hasn't changed my life but we have 8 hot water tanks heated by immersions (no gas, and no oil or LPG is dearer night electric is 6.5p/kWh and so is LPG but immersions don't need servicing annually and as we are on a green tariff are renewable). Noticeable drop in night-time consumption over the site, reduced heat loss = more hot water after blended with cold at mixer. Happier guests.
It isn't rocket science, it isn't as sexy as the PV or the heat pump but if all the cylinder has is a thin foam jacket then these really help. Suggest also insulating the first metre or so of pipe from tank to assist.
Yes they could be better made, the fixing of the eyelets are not as robust as they could be and the tapes are fiddly to put on but installed in circa ten minutes and then they never need touching again. They are well made enough for the purpose and would rather this than a higher price which would reduce payback."
"The Cylinder Jacket arrived well packed in a large brown box. Once out of the box was in another bag, There are four rolls that need to be allowed to plump out when unrolled. they are supposed to be tied with a supplied string but to be honest I found this to be too small so needed to put on a longer shoelace. each leaf when plumped up becomes nice and thick, it was then strait forward to place around the cylinder and the supplied tie strings were ample that I could go around twice. very pleased with it. Again any one can do this job."
"Very good value for money, it complies with the BS and seems to do the job well. I don't know why they describe it as having heavy duty fixings, they are just pieces of plastic raffia-type tape and a shoe-lace which which could have done with being 100mm longer. It was about 30% cheaper than some other outlets."
"Fitted to a newish hot water cylinder of standard size, for this jacket, so fit was no problem. The cylinder already had a 50mm foam covering, apart from the Immersion heater hole and the outlet at the top. Jacket adds a little more insulation and covers those bare parts. If you have decent access, pretty simple to fit."
"Very satisfied that the 4 piece jacket fitted tank with no gaps, previously had 2 jackets (8pieces) fitted to tank. Having read previous reviews I have to agree that the tape to secure jacket round tank is very light and fiddly. So I used good old fashioned net curtain wire with Hook and Eye easy to fit, easy to remove if any maintenance work to be carried out."
