Default Fitting a Surrey flange.

I think I need on on my hot water tank. These days when the cold water is so cold, we seem to be experiencing air bubbles in the hot tank which effectively shut down the pump.

Wickes used to do one, but no longer do.

Are there differences in quality? My hot water supply does not go staright up out of the tank, but immediately across at 90 degrees, then upwards. Will this make a difference?

Gravity heated hot water, pumped c/h.

TIA.

Slurry flanges are readily available at all plumbers merchants. the flange separates the supply to the pump and general hot water, so the layout remaining hot feed will not effect it.

Personally I prefer to fit an essex flange, as this completely separates the pump feed, but can be a bit daunting to fit as it involve starret cutting a hole in the side of the tank.

Thanks, I'd seen that on the net, think I'll pass on that. Just my luck to destroy the tank and have to replumb the lot

So are there different grades of Surrey? Or is one pretty much the same as another? They seem to range from 19 to 38.

How can there not have been even one funny comment about the Surrey Flange?

Lol, yes it's a bit daunting!

We mainly supply Salamander Shower pumps, and use their slurry flange if necessary.
Salamander S Flange

Screwfix do them for about 25.

Surrey will be easier, but you will need to raise the hot supply/expansion tee up a little, a lot less daunting then cutting a hole in the side of the cylinder
