pulacoil plinths

Post  coxsapple on Thu May 28, 2009 7:37 am

I live in a retirement building with 67 pulsacoil 2000 these are now about 5 years old, some of these have had
leaks from the main tank with disasterous results in multistory block.
there is a feeling that some of the trouble is caused by poorly built plinths some of which are not level.
possible or a myth?.

Hi coxapple,

In my opinion the leaking of the main tank (I presume you mean the internal copper container for the thermal store water) is nothing to do with the plinths. Gledhill supplied the units on a pallet and the installation instructions say this pallet is for use as a plinth.

Leaks in copper cylinders are fairly common and are associated with corrosion of the copper from which the container is made. Pinholes spontaneously appear straight through the copper sheet. Copper does not corrode in contact with water according to the chemists, but plumbers will tell you otherwise!

Not a lot of help I don't suppose....

Cheers, Mike
