How to install the Salamander Pumps’ S-flange?

  1. Turn off the water supply to the hot water cylinder then open the hot water taps and empty the hot water cylinder.
  2. Unscrew and remove any existing compression fitting from the top of the hot water cylinder and clean the pipes. Clean the area to remove any debris or remnants from the previous connection.
  3. Use a pipe-cutter to trim the existing pipes to allow the flange to be fitted to the top of the hot water cylinder.
  4. Wrap PTFE or potable jointing compound around the cleaned male threads of the S Flange. It’s important to note that when wrapping PTFE tape around a thread each revolution or layer should overlap the last one by roughly a half to ensure a good seal. PTFE tape should always run in the same direction as the thread itself.
  5. Tighten the flange onto the hot water tank to ensure a watertight seal and carefully screw it into the hot water cylinder ensuring it is level.
