Our Cold Water Storage Tanks are the ideal solution for new builds or those involved in enhancing, maintaining or replacing facilities.
We keep rectangular water tanks, circular water tanks, loft water tanks along with galvanised replacement tanks in stock. All are WRAS approved.
Cold water storage tanks are used in a vented heating system that rely to extend mains water to the system. The water is heated up and sent to where it is required and is gravity fed. They are generally found in houses located in the loft or attic. In the majority of houses, cold water enters the building via a mains pipe, where it is at full mains pressure, this water is then directed to one or two of the taps. This direction is done with the water being taken by another outlet of the T into a water tank in the attic, with a T fitting. From there it is distributed around the home.
A float valve controls he water going into the storage tank. The valve operates using a plastic (sometimes metal) ball which floats on the surface of the water, this is attached to an arm that is in turn connected to the valve mechanism. It lifts the arm that closes the valve and prevents water entering, when the float rises. If anything should go wrong with this valve, overflow pipes are fitted to permit water to flow out before reaching a level where they could overflow the tank. These overflow pipes can also be called warning pipes and the end has to be put where any discharge could be seen clearly.
