Can anyone help with either sourcing a replacement cylinder.
Is it even possible to repair them?

Have you spoken to Gledhill?
As the units are aometimes covered for 5 years for leaking.
Give them a try.
If not look at the Pulsacoil BP range.
Which are much more simple.

Well Gledhill are up and running.
The unit best for you would be a Gledhill Pulsacoil BP unit.

when i spoke to Gledhill Response about the water storage cylinder lasting just 4 years they said it had nothing to do with them since the manufacturer of the pulsa coil a class had gone into liquidation. they could however send out an engineer to look at it and quoted £400

The company used to be GWS Gledhill water storage.
They went bust, why I don't know.
There is and always has been Gledhill Building products which is a huge concern.
There is now Gledhill Response
Gledhill Parts.
Your leaking unit may be faulty due to;
When it was made.
When it was handled / installed.
On average these units weigh a quarter of a ton when full.
And hence must be supported like any other unit.
A direct easy replacement for you would be the Pulsacoil BP unit.
It has just 2 heaters, off peak and peak.
And a blending valve for the hot water mix.
Not much to go wrong at all. Very simple and basic. Not like the A classes.
If you live in a dwelling which is only 4 years old. Have you tried the builders or NHBC ?
If not try Gledhill and see if they would supply one at cost.
Or South Coast Green Energies who supply them at the prices below.
Pulsacoil BP 120
£760.80 inc. vat
Pulsacoil BP 150
£849.60 inc. vat
Pulsacoil BP 180
£902.40 inc. vat
Pulsacoil BP 220
£944.40 inc. vat
Check these prices as copper goes up and down.
Albion also do an electric cylinder giving mains pressure hot water. With a built in header tank.
But in your case I would go for the BP unit. May be a bit taller when installed though.
So check the heights.
Can't do no more for you.
What is your location?

The builder will only resolve problems if ordered to by the NHBC. The NHBC will only order builder to resolve structural issues. I am located in London
