feed and expansion tank

Postby longmanemma » Mon Jun 25, 2007 3:06 pm

Can anyone recommend where I could get a good feed and expansion type tank? I only seem to have found 4 gallon ones or much much bigger. I was hoping to get one around 25 gallons. Very new to all of this so seem to be spending a long time surfing aimlessly around sites where I don't understand the language!

Why do you need such a large feed and exspansion tank, standard tank should defo be ok.

I need this tank to run a pumped shower as I have an intermittent water supply. As he shower pumps approx 7 litre per minute, 4 gallons of water would only last a few minutes. The literature on the shower I want says 25 gallon tank is the minimum.

to run a pumped shower you want at least 50 gal of stored cold water it will be feeding you hot water cylinder as well as suppling the cold go to any plumbing suppliers they will be able to sort you out
