Resolved Question:

Hi there
Can you help please?
I have purchased a sealed electric hot water cylinder form ebay. See below.
Item Number 271254768832
Item Number 371007951914
Now, the sellers tell me I don't need an expansion vessel, however my builder friend is convinced i do. Can you please advise me on everything I need to install the water boiler safely.
Any advise would be very much appreciated.
Thanks

You will always need an expansion vessel unless you use a Megaflow which has a built in expansion "bubble" internal to the unit

The 2 items indicated with require an external potable expansion vessel

Thanks for that.

So just to confirm if I fit those bits then this will make the installation comply with safety rules and regs?
