elbi expansion tank

uffdanow00 Member, Email Confirmation Posts: 1
Im not sure if we can ask about a manufacturer here but I have a dilemma. Current system has a b and g expansion tank size b500. It has a slow leak. Piping between it and the rest of the system has sludge and will be replaced. A new bladder is a few weeks out and sounds like a terrible retrofit. Also, dont want the system down for an extended period. I asked our distributor if they had two smaller tanks in stock and they said they can match the b and g capacity with an elbi tank. Ive not heard of this brand. Does anyone have good or bad experiences with the manufacturer? Thanks

    An Italian tank, very common in Europe seen as OEM on many combi boilers. I believe the quality is as good as any other brand.

    No harm in two or more smaller tanks.
