Hi all, have been reading up about fitting shower pumps and will be doing it soon'ish. From what I've seen I need to fit a Essex flange to my cold water tank in the loft and a Surrey flange to the Hot water Cylinder. My question is this, do I just empty the CWT and drill the appropriate size hole in the bottom, up a bit from the base and in one of the flat zones, then just fit the flange? :dunno: This seems to simple to be true but what do I know, I'm a gardener not a plumber, or a sparky for that matter, or a builder, come to think of it :wtf: am I doing!?!?!?! Saving money and spending it on a holiday :huray:

Any help would be great.

Dave

It's not an Essex flange you fit to the cistern it's just a tank connector. For a diyer look no further than a 22mm speedfit one like this: http://www.plumb nation.co.uk/site/speedfit-tank-connector/

It should be installed just lower than the outlet that feeds the hot water cylinder if possible to ensure you don't get scalded if you run out of water :wink:

OP just copy the above link and remove the space between Plumb and Nation.

Apologies to Razor, Plumbnation links have been banned due to spammers, no reflection on your reputation.

Normally the mods wouldn't let a new poster put up a website in case it was the company spamming.

However as I spent £1500 on fittings there last month and it's where all my copper fittings come from I think they will let it go this time :wink:
That's gotta be worth a discount :lol:

I must be special, it is my 4th :mrgreen: . Just had a look at that site Razor, seems expensive compared to the one I intend to use, is this a bad thing, are there different qualities of copper out there?

When you spend that much you don't pay the prices on the web :wink:
