Do you have an RV with the usual on-demand pump that cycles every time you open a faucet? Such rapid and constant cycling of the pump will wear it out quickly. If you put one of these expansion tanks in the system, it will save a ton of wear and tear on the pump plus give you much more steady flow of water. Put the tank anywhere in the cold water piping system (closer to the shower is best) and charge to the low side pressure of the pressure switch on the pump. This expansion tank is 1/2 the cost of the Shurflo tank which does the same thing. Secure the tank with an old bike inner tube to the flooring.

Good little tank

This is a good little exp. tank
My recommendation is use with only One Solar collector systems, or no more than 2000' 1/2" pex tubing heating systems.

Comments about #15 Extrol Expansion Tank (2 Gallon Volume):

Got a great deal, bought 3 items altogether with a reasonable S&H. So far it has been working as it intended.
Pex shipped quickly once I reminded them that it should have been shipped a day earlier as they had promised me at the time of the sale. Wonderful people to work with and I certainly would buy it again from them.

Comments about #15 Extrol Expansion Tank (2 Gallon Volume):

I bought this expansion tank to use in an auxillary heating system in my basement. It works great. Even with the shipping charges, it was still 30% less expensive than I could find anywhere locally. It was shipped out to me very quickly. This is a great company to deal with.

    Q:

    Please advise what model expansion tank I should buy for my 50 gal hot water heater in my home. My hot water heater is ONLY used for showers, washing machine, etc., it is NOT used for actually heating the home. Thanks.
    Asked on 8/20/2012 by Patty

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The manufacturer would recommend an ST-5 part number 143N43.

  • #15 Extrol Expansion Tank (2 Gallon Volume)

    Q:

    I have a W-M CGA 5 (140,000 BTU/hr); it currently has a Extrol 15 installed downstream of pump. I am told the expansion tank needs to be replaced. Should I go with the 15 or the 30? Does the downstream location present a problem? The current configuration has been in place for 7 years.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Use a #30.
      Ideally it should be pumping away from expansion tank, but it probably won't be cost effective to change it, especially if it has been OK up until now.

      Answered on 6/6/2012 by recycleman5 from Philadelphia, PA
    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      We would recommend a #30 expansion tank. A #15 would be too small. It is best to install the expansion tank on the supply side of the boiler before the circulator pump, at the "point of no pressure change."

    Can this product be used along a potable water line?
    Asked on 12/29/2011 by Anonymous

    • A:

      The #15 Extrol Expansion Tank is NOT intended for use in a supply system for potable water supplies.

      Answered on 1/9/2012 by Anonymous from None
    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      This expansion tank is designed for use in closed heating systems (i.e. systems that continually cycle the same water). In an open system (such as any plumbing system), the tank would rust.

    Q:

    I have an old Amtrol 2 gal., model ST-5 that needs replacing. It will be installed in my main water supply line and is primarily to control pressure to my 40 gal., potable, hot water dedicated heater that will be about 18' from the expansion tank.
    1) What model expansion tank should I use?.
    2) When I install the tank vertically, does it matter which end is up and which is down?.
