Weight of thermal store and immersion cylinder upgrades, adding structural support under the floor

Postby bobdabuilder » Wed Oct 20, 2021 9:15 pm

I'm looking at putting in a 1000 litre thermal store cylinder. Full of water, it will weigh over 1000kg

I saw some pictures of supports people constructed under their joists to help their aquariums.

Can anybody comment on this? Which products do I need to ask for? The soil is about 50cm below the joists, I feel like I should put some concrete tiles down there first to spread the weight.
