Thermal Stores - Help please

I've been reading the posts about other members' troubles with Thermflo 210 vented cylinder.

I'm thinking about buying one of these just for hot water for baths, showers etc and heated by oil burning AGA. The AGA currently heats up the water that is stored in our hot water tank. (CH runs separately off a boiler that doesn't heat up the hot water for baths etc)

There's only the two of us at home, so what size do we need 210 or smaller?

The AGA is on 24/7 so do we need an electric heating element in the cylinder or can it just use the AGA?

If we do need a heating element will the13kW size be enough?

Are the Thermflo cheaper or more expensive than the Megaflo cylinders?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm sorry if what I'm asking is obvious to everyone else but I'd rather come across as stupid than buy the wrong thing.
