Storage Tank & Aqua Booster Replacements Services CT
Storage tanks, aka, aqua boosters, work by holding water produced from a near by boiler. It’s basically a standard water heater, holding hot water all throughout the day, with 30,40,50,65,80 or 100 gallons of stored hot water ready for use. Storage tanks/ aqua boosters, as well as indirect water heaters do not have their own fuel source.
All types of storage tanks communicates with the boiler, via aqua-stat, and a boiler produces all the hot water needed from a separate zone, (for gas boilers) or small compartment/ chamber of the boiler, called a tankless coil (for oil-fired boilers.)
NOTE: Storage tanks are normally associated with commercial (large) applications, such as; restaurants, hotels, and multi family buildings over 5 units and come in capacity sizes from 80- 250 gallons or larger. Aqua boosters are found within single family homes, the most common tanks sizes are 30 and 40 gallon for homes with 1-2 bathers, 50 gallon and 70 gallon tanks are found in larger homes with 3+ full bathrooms.
Storage tanks are well known for supplying large volume of hot water compared to other options. Storage tanks are not all that expensive but most states have made adjustments to plumbing and heating codes, and today more expensive pumps with stainless steel components are required. Meaning, on top of the cost of the tank & labor, you also have to add a new some what expensive circulator pump. I suspect the alarming climbing rate of autism and other similar medical issues are to blame. Water safety is always and always should be a major public safety concern.
When storage tanks blow out they can cost quite a nightmare, not only do you have water on the floor, the water is a high temperature during heating season. And this water will continue to refill from the homes supply line. The water damaging a floor ad near by wall, all while and wasting tons of energy in the processes because the boiler will continue to send hot water over to the leaking tank until a supply line is closed.
