How do I deal with air in the system?
Air causes a range of problems in pumps and can ultimately damage or break the pump. The best way to prevent air getting into the pump is to ensure that a flange is fitted on the hot water cylinder. Salamander sell an ‘S’ flange, which is a device used to remove air intake from the hot water cylinder from where the pumps draws hot water. The ‘S’ flange sits on top of the hot water cylinder and will need to be installed by a competent and trained installer. Click here for further information on the S falnge.
Most of our pumps must have a flange fitted to ensure longevity of life of the pump and for the warranty to remain valid. Click here for further information and exceptions to this.
Please ensure that the pumps’ warranty and installation guide book is checked before pump installation.
