This morning started with me discovering a leak from the cold water tank in the loft. It seems to have split, rotting the timber on which it was sitting. I now need to replace the tank with another and the supporting wood work.
So a couple of questions:
1) How big a tank do I need to have in a 4 bedroom house - condensing boiler (if that makes any difference!), upstairs bathroom and hot water tank fed by the cold water tank. I also have a seperate tank for pumped shower and a header tank for the heating system.
2) Where can I find one that will fit through my loft opening 21" x 28"?
i assume the tank in question will not fit the loft opening so must have been installed when house being built,if so get two tanks to give you the same vuolume and connect together
if no volume or info on the tank ,take measurements to plumbers suppliers and explain,get the two tanks,tank connector,ball valve etc and marry them up install new supports and you may be best raising the supports to give a bit more pressure
should do the trick
