Discuss Replacement for this... in the Plumbing Forum area at UKPlumbersForums.co.uk.
Anyone have any recommendations for a replacement for the below tank.
Depends on water pressure either an unvented cylinder or a normal tank feed cylinder
What is it coated in?
no gas only electric in this flat. They have economy 7
Thinking a direct combination economy 7 cylinder
no idea of the coating last plumber
flats were made in the 60's
It made me think asbestos when I saw it !
It may just be that the look reminded me of Boilers lagged in pig muck. It may be something completely innocent. Worth a mention though.
It did cross my mind that it may be asbestos. Will have a closer inspection.
Looks like an elson?
Elson unit as mentioned above. Covered in insulation then hardboard. E7 combination unit or unvented. I'm guessing your hot water pressure is quite bad?
