Heating and plumbing

This week we installed a new 300-litre Kingspan Ultrasteel Unvented Hot Water Cylinder and 300-litre Challenger Water Accumulator in a third storey attic conversion. The objective was to store and supply hot and cold water within a large house while ensuring sufficient capacity of water throughout.

The customer had previously been using a Vented Hot Water Cylinder (which was leaking) and an Unvented Hot Water Cylinder for his showers. There were also 2 cold water storage tanks in use commonly found on old plumbing systems.

The complaint was that there was never enough hot water to supply the whole house and the flow rate was quite poor, not to mention the leaking cylinder.

The 300-litre Kingspan Ultrasteel Unvented Hot Water Cylinder we installed will ensure that the property stores a sufficient supply of hot water. The 300-litre Challenger Water Accumulator will supply a good flow rate of water throughout the property, even with all outlets in use.

We’re happy to report the house has a great supply of hot and cold water throughout, with a great flow rate!
