A while back I posted about an issue I was having with hot taps running luke warm whilst the water in the cylinder was hot (70 deg).
It was determined that the likely issue was a faulty TMV.
I’m looking for assistance for 2 points if possible:
1. Does anyone know where I can get a like for like replacement for the Solar TMV. There seems to be many types out there and to the untrained it’s a little confusing. Image of current one included. Can’t figure out who the manufacturer is - Altecnic possibly??
2. It looks straight forward to swap out. I have previously had to change out a PRV and had remove and reseat one of the expansion vessels. So not a complete newbie. Can anyone direct me to an instructional video etc? Or provide me with an overview of how to change it out?
