I use a battery powered sprayer around my property. I bought an old Mantis sprayer and rehabed it. The tank was needed as a buffer so the motor didn't go on and off continuously. The buffer tank worked great.

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.

Amtrol 15 EXTROL Expansion Tank

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

After calculating my expansion tank requirements, I downsized from my oversized #30 unit that was faulty after 10 years. Works great holding boiler pressure between 15 and 25 psi. The unit is well made and covered with a durable coat of paint.

  • #15 Extrol Expansion Tank (2 Gallon Volume)

    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.

    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.

    • 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?.
