Unvented Cylinder Service
Do You Really Need to Maintain Them Annually?
The simple answer here is “yes”. You should have your unvented water cylinder inspected and serviced every year. The reason for this is that unvented cylinders, while offering better performance and reliability than vented cylinders, do have inherent risks. They are pressurised metal cylinders. If one or both of the safety systems were to fail, it could be very dangerous. Annual inspections and maintenance ensure that your cylinder does not become an explosion hazard.
What’s Required in Terms of Annual Maintenance?
The pressure relief valve and the temperature relief valve. Both of these must be in good working condition for an unvented cylinder to be safe.
Additionally, a qualified plumber will also check a number of other things on your system. These include the following:
* Checking all electrical connections to ensure tightness and that there is no corrosion
* Checking the tundish and surrounding area for signs of water
* Checking for signs of damage to wiring, such as rodent gnawing, etc.
* Check the air bubble in the cylinder tank
* Check and recharge the expansion vessel
* Check the thermostat for functionality/wear
