You need a separate feed from the tank. -Ideally under the level that the feed to the hot cylinder comes out . So that if the tank runs dry -The hot runs out first :idea:

thanks for that.
i presume that means drilling a hole in the tank.
can you get kits for making a new feed in the tank, like seals etc

thanks for your time

Yes, drill hole with correct size holesaw . You could use plastic pipe :idea: And you`ll need a "tank connector" fitting plus the other bits etc. Comes ready with seals -the plastic push fit one does. Copper one you need 2 plastic washers (one each side of tank wall) and some ptfe tape wrapped round the thread of the connector.
