Replacement Hot Water Tank - Carrera

Post by Rosta » Sun May 23, 2010 7:50 am

My hot water cylinder leaks around the immersion heater joint and so needs replacing. I'm no plumber, so my question is what type of cylinder do I need, vented or un-vented? Its the usual pumped water system. Also can anyone recommend a make/supplier?

hi, if it leaks around the immersion heater boss then its probably the seal thats failed, its very common because its just made of fiber and over-tightened it distorts.

to fix you'd need to remove the element with the right box spanner then buy a new seal (couple of ?) remember to not over-tighten else you will shred the seal.

Unfortunately the tank split when I was trying to get the old immersion out. So its definitely a new tank.
