About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. My current Baxi boiler system needed topping up on a daily basis so bought the ARB18 Expansion Vessel (Baxi Megaflow system) Package Content :1x ARB18 Expansion Vessel (Baxi Megaflow system) FittingsThe item arrvied sooner than expected, kudos to the seller. These replacement membranes are quick and easy to install and can be used with all Aquasystem replaceable membrane potable and heating expansion vessels.

As the process is going on, the membrane deflates until the pressure reaches its minimal threshold value.Happy to get it done by G3 engineer but an idea of how long it will take so I can gauge cost would be a great help, as if I point it out to Valliant service guy Im sure the cost will be astronomical and they'd yellow tape the system and switch it off if I didnt proceed. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. Once this has been reached the membrane will be fully inflated and takes up the capacity of the vessel shell. Surely some have better membranes than others and installers prefer certain makes to others for reliability. THE AQUASYSTEMS ARB POTABLE EXPANSION VESSELS ARE MANUFACTURED TO COMPLY WITH UK WATER REGULATIONS AND ARE TESTED AND CERTIFIED BY WRAS.

The installation was very simple, the engineer powered off the mains of the boiler and replaced the vessel and restarted the system and it was all good. The Aquasystems ARB Potable Expansion Vessels are manufactured to comply with UK water regulations and are tested and certified by WRAS. An expansion vessel absorbs the water volume variations in heating systems maintaining constant pressure and help to reduce energy consumption.The instructions are quite difficult to read, the text us ridiculously small and also don't cover much. I dont want it replaced with the same one, ideally an upgrade to a better manufacturer, so your recommendations for a reliable one would be great. I am sure that you check and top up your car tyres every few weeks so why do you not expect your EXV not to be checked for three years at a time.

THE MAIN PURPOSE OF THE VESSEL IS TO COMPENSATE FOR THE INCREASE IN VOLUME OF WATER DUE TO THE VARYING WATER TEMPERATURES IN THE SYSTEM, E.All Aquasystem expansion vessels are supplied with a replaceable membrane, which separates the water and air, to prevent contamination of the water system, corrosion of the expansion vessel or pressure loss in the water system. All versions supplied with a replaceable membrane meaning the vessel can be serviced without being removed.
