Have a water cylinder built to your specification






Non standard water cylinders

There are many occasions when an 'off the shelf' water cylinder can't or won't do the job. That's when it's handy to be able to specify exactly what you need to meet with the demands of your project.


Modifications and additions

It could be that a minor modification to a fairly standard unit will suffice - say an extra tapping or two, a secondary return, an extra heat exchanger or a shower take-off. If so, then click here to learn more. If not, if you have a more substantial requirement you may need a custom cylinder or vessel  manufactured.


Specialist water cylinders and awkward shapes

Be it a specialist agricultural application, an awkward shape or an industrial use there are many different reasons why you might need a design to suit your environment.

Words of advice

While it is possible to manufacture water storage vessels in almost any shape you would be wise to explore the possibility of using a cylinder in any situation. Cylinders are the ideal shape as they can withstand the surprising stresses that the pressure of water create. A vessel, for example, with flat sides tends to bow outward as the weight of water contained within pushes against it. For this reason flat sided vessels have to be made especially strong, which means thick material, which means more cost.

In short, whenever possible opt for a cylindrical storage vessel. If height is the problem then maybe a horizontal cylinder might suffice, but always explore cylinders before opting for the more expensive option of a flat sided tank.
