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

Dodgy Cylinder
7 Dec 2014
By CCPierre
, Carmarthenshire
" 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.

" Would be nice to point out that it comes WITHOUT all the connections required, that the hot draw off is female and that a emmersion cap is also required. So another £10 needed on top of the price, bringing close to one which comes with anything required. "

Keenly priced

" Delivered fast as usual with Screwfix.
In a box a nice feature as often a merchant purchased cylinder will have a few "transit scars" on it.
The inclusion of an immersion boss plug as standard would be a great bonus, as I have found that few merchants keep them on the shelf.
More than happy to fit another one.

" Got tank nice and promptly only to find that it must be for a fully pumped system! As mine is gravity fed this was a right pain. On the product description it does not state that this is for pumped systems only which would have saved a lot of time and heartache for an amatur DIYer "

" First class delivery and price as always, shame they don't tell you it has female connections for hot water supply, so you need 2x 1" nipples or 2x 1" compression to convert to male, so it's not a straight swap like for like. "

PUMPED PRIMARIES ONLY

By MrWobblehead
, outer hebrides
" Just received one of these to replace an existing cylinder on a gravity system, went to unload van only to find "all connections to coil MUST be pumped" written on the box! (its a high resistance ,high output coil) so had to return it :-(
This needs to be included in the product desciption!

Poor Welding
21 Mar 2012
By PlumberDan
, Stevenage
" 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.... "
