    @njtommy why not try a local suppky house....plumbing supplies by me stock both types....i know johnstone supply has them since your in nj.....i like the bracket type better....the type in your pic above is more expensive and requires plugs, air vents etc too which do not come with the setup....i would just get a bracket type like the hydroclaw or the hose clamp type.

    @Paul S I tried local supply house they said they've never seen a bracket like that. I was hoping to use something different that looks good.

    I will double check johnstone. Thanks.

    I have seen those at supply counters across the US. Ferguson, Denver was on place.

    Rathe Associates on Long Island carries this Calefactio brand.

    I always used a 10" Unistrut pipe clamp (galvanized) and 1-5/8" strut. Too much torque on two screws for me with those wall claws. I like spanning at least two studs.

    Are you looking for just one, or an ongoing source? I have some samples of this Caleffi brass version. It came in a little $$ so we don't bring them over.

    I adjusted the metric connections.

    Fill valve screws in the bottom, has a check valve for the expansion tank for removal and service. You are welcomed to one.

    I definitely need 1 for now on a job that I need to go back on and finish, but if they aren't available here don't worry about it. I would like to try and get my main supplier to get them for me. As I told them with the Taco VR and VT pumps if people know or see you stock them you will sell the pumps.

    I realize this thread is a few months old but if you're interested in the HydroClaw I would love to talk to the supply house in your area and see if they would like to carry our bracket.
    Thanks

    I'm bringing this thread back to life. Any new favorites out there? It seems Axiom makes the most comprehensive bracket assembly but it's not available for several weeks.

    What do you think of this bracket I designed it to be used for potable or hydronic, its stainless.
    1/2 & 3/4 tank connections, 1/4 for rear mount pressure gauge, fill valve connections.

    I used the Flamco AND the HydroClaw on my own system just because.

    How about support for the ASME exp tank? The ones that look like a small "Fat Boy". Looks to be the physical size of a ST-12.
    I have one about 12' off floor, can't get to it unless I haul the ladder in to redo some other plumbing.

    Brilliant installation....completely engineered in 1997.
    Installed by company more than 100 miles away so you know they were "pros".
    You have to shut the entire K-12 school off to remove it.
    No check valve anywhere.....wasn't needed then.
    But will be necessary with piping corrections.

    I suppose it depends on the installation, but I have yet to find anything better than the HydroClaw for what I do. They're darn spendy, but then again so are the arms and the arms take WAYYYY more labor.
