    Hi

    I'm interested in a Thermal store to hold heat from Solar, log back-boiler, backup gas boiler / electric element. Possibly also air-source pump as it will be installed for air-con and is reversible. System to emit heat for hot water, rads, underfloor.

    Have had a few suggestions how parts of the system might work but have not seen end-to-end design config or install options.

    Have seen a few very informative posts here and looked up DPS - only to discover they are unfortunatley not trading now.
    So back to square one.

    Any help / advice would be gratefully received. Thx.
    Mark.

    Newark copper cylinder manufacture cylinders (obviously) of all types, and have experience in thermal stores (and oddities); they don't tend to actually sell direct, but the people can advise and suggest designs, and seem to be able to include anything and everything you can ask for (coils, tappings, sensor pockets, extra insulation...)
    You'll have to somehow find a retailer to order through, though I guess you could just ask them for (local?) suggestions.
