I have an urgent requirement to change my hot water cylinder, the old one is
leaking. The system is an indirect primatic combination cylinder and after
getting a replacement cylinder in three days after all the plumbers
merchants telling me minimum two weeks sometimes more I am ready for
fitting. I would like to know if it is recommended to fit solder fittings or
would it be best to use compression fittings?
I'd always go for an easily dismantlable joint close to such a major system
part. I have threaded fittings on my cylinder so that's taken care of there,
but in your case I would try to use compression. That said, it depends how
much room you have - compression fittings take up more room so if you
need to make some tight bends close to the cyl you may have no choice.
