Advice
Please read the following section
carefully
before
commencing
installation. If in any doubt, please call
the
appropriate
help
desk.
Disregarding the instructions given in
this manual in its entirety and any
relevant regulations, standards and
codes of practice will void the
guarantee of this product.
Handling – depending on the size of
the unit and access to its installation
location, consideration must be given
to the handling of the unit. Please note
that handling, installation and use of
this product is subject to the Health
and Safety at Work Act.
If the unit is not installed immediately,
it should remain in its protective
packaging with all pipe protectors/end
caps applied to prevent damage and
dirt deposit inside the cylinder and the
coils.
- scalding: where appropriate or
required by law a thermostatic
mixing valve is to be fitted to the hot
water outlet of the cylinder (see also
water borne organisms).
- explosion: the unit is fully equipped
with all relevant safety equipment to
comply with current regulations. The
correct design and function has been
verified by independent third party
testing. The correct application
thereof is the responsibility of the
competent installer.
- water
borne
organisms
(i.e.
Legionella): if applicable a risk
assessment should be carried out
following
the
recommendations
outlined in the Approved Code of
Practice L8.
- the user preference must be
considered when commissioning the
system, in particular when adjusting
the solar and auxiliary system
temperature and timer settings.
Pipe work – the pipe runs should be
executed as short as possible, unused
pipe work should be removed and all
remaining pipe work should be lagged
in
accordance
with
regulatory
requirements to prevent heat loss and
the formation of condensation.
4.2 Siting considerations
Taps and fittings – all taps and
fittings incorporated in the unvented
system should have a rated operating
pressure of 0.6 MPa (6 bar) or above.
- access for installation, operation,
maintenance and replacement
4.1 Risk assessment
- access to water mains supply, hot
and cold water distribution pipe work
The compilation of a risk assessment is
strongly
recommended
before
installing the product. The following
areas require particular consideration
in addition to the information required
by the Health and Safety at Work Act.
When choosing a suitable location for
the cylinder the following aspects
should be considered:
- structural integrity
- routing of discharge pipe work
- access to suitable electricity supply
- location in relation to remaining
system
components
such
as
auxiliary and solar heating system
Pre-Installation
Installation and User Instructions R01128-8 09/15

4 Pre-Installation
4.3 Cold water supply
The solar cylinder range is designed to
be floor standing, vertically mounted,
indoors
and
in
a
frost
free
environment. The cylinder may be
located on any flat and level surface,
provided it is sufficiently robust to
support the weight of the cylinder
when full of water (please see technical
data) and suitably accessible for
replacement/maintenance
without
specialist tools or lifting equipment as
this will void the warranty conditions.
The position and orientation of the
cylinder should be such that easy
access is provided for servicing the
controls. A minimum distance of
400mm in front of the immersion is
recommended,
to
allow
the
replacement of the immersion heater
should the need arise. When installing
the cylinder all labels should be clearly
visible and ensure that no pipework
hinders any work to be carried out on
the various cylinder components.
Particular care must be taken when
placing the cylinder in a garage or
outbuilding. All exposed pipe work
must be correctly insulated to avoid
frost damage.
For satisfactory and safe performance
of the unvented cylinder the water
supply must meet the following
criteria:
Minimum dynamic
pressure
Maximum inlet supply
pressure
Minimum flow rate
Max. chlorine content
Max. water hardness
150 kPa
(1.5 bar)
1200 kPa
(12 bar)
15 l/min
250mg/L
200mg/L
The following instructions have to be
followed when installing the cold water
mains supply to the cylinder:
- The cold water supply to the cylinder
must come directly from the cold
water mains after the mains stop
valve to the property.
- The cold water inlet pipe work should
have at least an inside diameter of
19mm and should meet the
requirements
of
the
water
regulations for the supply of
wholesome water.
CLEANING
INSTRUCTIONS:
Clean
outer
cladding
of
cylinder with a soft cloth
dampened with warm water
only. Do not use abrasive or
aggressive
cleaning
materials, such as alcohol or
petroleum based solvents, as
this may damage the surface
of the product.

Dimplex
recommend
an
annual
maintenance inspection is carried out
on the domestic hot water cylinder. In
hard water areas this should include
inspection of the heat exchanger and
immersion heater, [above 120ppm or
120mg/l]. A local water treatment
company should be able to offer free
water quality testing. The heating
elements may require periodic descaling. The installer should do this as
part of a maintenance agreement.
As part of the requirements of Building
Regulation G3 any discharge from an
unvented system should be conveyed
to where it is visible, but will not cause
danger to persons in or about the
building. The tundish and the discharge
pipes should be fitted in accordance
with the requirements of Building
Regulation approved document G3,
(England and Wales), Part P of
Northern Ireland and Standard 4.9 of
Scotland.
Installation and User Instructions R01128-8 09/15
Page 17
If required, precautions can be taken
to minimise effects of water hardness,
i.e. installation of water conditioner or
water softener. These devices should
be installed in hard water areas where
high water storage temperatures are
required, i.e. greater than 60°C
storage temperatures, particularly
when
water
hardness
exceeds
200ppm. Should the water cylinder
require de-scaling, this must be
performed by a qualified technician.
4.4 Building regulation G3
Discharge
requirements
Pre-Installation
Discharge pipe D2
The discharge pipe (D2) from the
Tundish should:
- “have a vertical section of pipe at
least 300mm long below the
tundish before any elbows or
bends in the pipework and be
installed with a continuous fall of
at least 1 in 200 thereafter.”
The discharge pipe (D2) should be
made of:
- “metal; or other material that has
been demonstrated to be capable
of
safely
withstanding
temperatures
of
the
water
discharged and is clearly and
permanently marked to identify
the product and performance
standard”
Dimplex strongly recommends the use
of metal pipework only and Dimplex
does not take responsibility for any
damage caused from discharges.
The discharge pipe D2 should be at
least one pipe size larger than the
nominal outlet size of the safety device
unless its total equivalent hydraulic
resistance exceeds that of a straight
pipe 9m long, i.e. for discharge pipes
between 9m and 18m the equivalent
resistance length should be at least two
sizes larger than the nominal outlet
size of the safety device; between 18
and 27m at least 3 sizes larger, and so
on; bends must be taken into account
in calculating the flow resistance. See
Figure 4, Table 4 and the worked
example.
Note: An alternative approach for
sizing discharge pipes would be to
follow Annex D, section D.2 of BS
6700:2006 + A1:2009).

4.4.1
Table 4: Sizing of copper discharge pipe “D2” for common temperature relief valve outlet sizes
4.4.2
Worked example
This example is for a G½ temperature
relief valve with a discharge pipe (D2)
(as fitted on 125 to 300L cylinders)
having 4 No. 22mm elbows and length
of 7m from the tundish to the point of
discharge.
From Table 4, the maximum resistance
allowed for a straight length of 22mm
copper discharge pipe
(D2) from a G½ temperature relief
valve is 9.0m. Subtract the resistance
for 4 No. 22mm elbows at 0.8m each
= 3.2m.
Therefore
length
the
maximum
permitted
equates to 5.8m, which is less than the
actual length of 7m, therefore calculate
the next largest size.
Maximum resistance allowed for a
straight length of 28mm copper
discharge pipe (D2) from a G½
temperature relief valve is: 18m
Subtract the resistance for 4 No. 28mm
elbows at 1.0m each = 4m
Therefore the maximum
length equates to 14m.
permitted
Installation and User Instructions R01128-8 09/15
Page 19
As the actual length is 7m, a 28mm
(D2) copper pipe will be satisfactory.
Pre-Installation
- The discharge pipe should not be
connected to a soil discharge stack
unless the soil discharge stack is
capable of safely withstanding
temperatures
of
the
water
discharged, in which case, it should:
- contain a mechanical seal, which
allows water into the branch pipe
without allowing foul air from the
drain to be ventilated through the
tundish.
- there should be a separate branch
pipe with no sanitary appliances
connected to it.
- if plastic pipes are used as branch
pipes carrying discharge from a
safety device, they should be
either polybutalene (PB) or crosslinked
polyethylene
(PE-X)
complying
with
national
standards.
- be continuously marked with a
warning
that
no
sanitary
appliances should be connected to
the pipe.
4.4.3
Termination
discharge pipe
of
- “The discharge pipe (D2) from the
tundish should terminate in a safe
place where there is no risk to
persons in the vicinity of the
discharge.”
- Examples of acceptable discharge
arrangements are:
- “to a trapped gully with the end of
the pipe below a fixed grating and
above the water seal;
- downward discharges at low level;
i.e. up to 100mm above external
surfaces such as car parks, hard
standings, grassed areas etc. are
acceptable providing that a wire
cage or similar guard is positioned to
prevent contact, whilst maintaining
visibility; and ,
- discharges at high level: e.g. into a
metal hopper and metal downpipe
with the end of the discharge pipe
clearly visible or onto a roof capable
of withstanding high temperature
discharges of water and 3m from any
plastic guttering system that would
collect such discharges.”
Note: As the discharge would
consist of high temperature water
and steam, asphalt, roofing felt
and non-metallic rainwater goods
may
be
damaged
by
such
discharges.
Pre-Installation
Installation and User Instructions R01128-8 09/15
Page 20
- Where a single common discharge
pipe serves more than one system,
it should be at least one pipe size
larger than the largest individual
discharge pipe (D2) to be connected.
4.5 Limitations
the cylinder and removes any debris
that might be water borne.
- The solar collector array must be
specified correctly, to ensure it is
compatible with the model of
cylinder installed. This is to prevent
the cylinder overheating or the solar
array to be exposed to prolonged
stagnation periods.
Note: Between the inlet group and
the cold water inlet on the cylinder
NO isolating device may be fitted,
as by doing so important safety
devices could be isolated!
- The heat exchangers in this range of
cylinders have been specifically
designed for solar applications.
Great care must be taken if using
these cylinders with other heat
sources, due to the heat exchange
capacity of the product.
- Solar cylinders must be installed with
a solar hydraulic pump station,
which
incorporates
non-return
valves.
- When the cylinder is installed with a
low cost pump station which
incorporates only one non-return
valve, then an additional non-return
valve is to be installed within the
closed loop to prevent gravity
circulation.
5.1.3
Expansion vessel
The expansion vessel is mandatory on
all EC-Eau cylinders and can be
connected directly to the cold water
inlet group, utilising the flexible hose
supplied
with
the
vessel.
The
expansion vessel should always be
fitted
in
accordance
with
the
manufacturer’s
instructions.
No
isolating device should be fitted
between the water cylinder and the
cold water inlet group.
Furthermore, it is recommended to
mount the vessel higher than the
cylinder to avoid having to drain the
cylinder
when
maintaining
and
replacing the expansion vessel.

Pipe insulation
It is recommended to insulate the hot
water pipe work from the cylinder to
the outlets, to reduce the energy
requirements for providing hot water.
It is also recommended to insulate all
other exposed pipework, such as the
T&P to the tundish, the coil flow and
return and the cold water inlet pipes.

5.3.1
Discharge pipes from
safety devices
Discharge pipe D1
- The temperature and pressure relief
valve must be discharged directly or
by way of a manifold via a short
length of metal pipe (D1) into a
tundish; and the discharge pipe must
be installed in a continuously
downward direction and in a frost
free environment. Water may drip

pre-charge should be greater
than or equal to 3bar.
from the discharge pipe of the
pressure relief device and this pipe
must be left open to the atmosphere.
- The diameter of discharge pipe (D1)
should not be less than the nominal
outlet size of the safety device, e.g.
temperature relief valve.
- Where a manifold is used it should be
sized to accept and discharge the
total discharge from all the D1
discharge pipes connected to it.
- The discharge pipe work from the
expansion relief valve must be
installed constantly falling to an open
point
of
discharge.
It
is
recommended to combine it with the
discharge of the temperature and
pressure relief valve.
Note: The T&P valve is pre-sealed
and if moved the seal will be
broken, should this occur, it will
need to be resealed with an
appropriate sealant (Dimplex part
number R00836-1).
5.3.2
Discharge pipe D2
5.3.3
Tundish
- The tundish should be vertical,
located in the same space as the
unvented hot water storage system
and be fitted as close as possible to,
and lower than, the safety device,
with no more than 600mm of pipe
between the valve outlet and the
tundish (see Figure 4).
- Discharge should be visible at the
tundish, where discharges may not
be apparent, e.g. in dwellings
occupied by people with impaired
vision or mobility, consideration
should be given to the installation of
a suitable safety device to warn
when discharge takes place, e.g.
electronically operated.
Note: To comply with the Water
Supply
(Water
Fittings)
Regulations, the tundish should
incorporate a suitable air gap.
It is important that the tundish
is positioned away from any
electrical components.

seen in Figure 7. For further details
please see instructions provided with
the immersion heater.
The immersion heater incorporates an
independent non-self resetting over
temperature cut-out. Should the over
temperature cut-out operate, the reset
pin will be pushed upwards, and
become level or slightly proud of the
cover at the position marked “Safety”.
Use a suitable sized implement to reset
the pin by pushing it hard into its
original position.
Note: Should it be necessary to
remove the thermostat from the
immersion element, ensure that
the contacts are re-fitted correctly
into the positions on the element.
Failure to do so carries the risk of
overheating the contacts and thus
damaging the appliance.
A torque of 40 Nm is recommended
when tightening up the immersion
after it has been removed and refitted.
The immersion heater thermostat must
not
be
opened
under
any
circumstances.
Note: The cylinder must be filled
with water before switching on the
immersion heater. Failure to do so
will damage the element and void
any guarantee on the product.

5.5 Solar coil connections
If the flow connection is the highest
point in the solar loop and if the system
was not commissioned using a flush
and fill pump, an adequate device for
de-aeration must be installed.
For ease of maintenance it is
recommended to install a drain valve
at the return connection of the solar
coil. Compression fittings should be
used to complete this part of the
installation.
Note: If the cylinder is located
higher than the solar collector
array, a two port valve has to be
installed and wired accordingly.
5.6
Auxiliary coil
connections
For ease of maintenance it is
recommended to install a drain valve
at the return connection of the
auxiliary heating coil, if this is the
lowest point in the auxiliary heating
loop.
It is recommended that the fittings
used to connect to the cylinder are
suitable for stainless steel, the flow and
return should use 28mm compression
fittings. Not all push fit fittings can be
used – please check with your supplier.
When using compression fittings,
ensure that the connection is not overtightened.
Installation
Installation and User Instructions R01128-8 09/15

If the flow connection is the highest
point in the auxiliary heating loop an
adequate device for de-aeration must
be installed.
5.7 Thermostat connection
The solar circulation pump and the
auxiliary heating system can be wired
to the cylinder in various ways as
described by the chosen supplier.
The two port valve supplied with the
solar indirect cylinder is to be installed
by default into the auxiliary heating
loop. If the cylinder is located higher
than the solar collector array, a two
port valve has to be installed in the
solar loop and wired accordingly.
To conform to building regulations, it is
imperative that any heat generator
connected to the cylinder is installed
through the correct twin thermostat,
which is factory fitted to the cylinder.

Connection
Secondary Return
of
For cylinders that do not have a
dedicated
secondary
return
connection, it is possible to install a
secondary return by connecting a
swept - T to the cold water inlet of the
cylinder (see Figure 11).
The secondary return pipe should
incorporate a check valve and a WRAS
approved circulation pump; timer and
thermostat to be provided separately.
Where secondary return circuits are
used, then an additional expansion
vessel may be required.
The secondary return loop must avoid:
- stagnant water in long pipe runs
- long waiting times at draw off point
for hot water
- undue water wastage
To minimise the energy consumption of
the secondary return circuit and to
ensure reliable operation it is important
to consider:
- the control of the circulation pump to
be time and temperature controlled
- the secondary return circuit pipe
work to be insulated
- the secondary return pump to be of
suitable material and specification

User Instructions
10.2 Operation
Once the system has been fully
commissioned, no user intervention
should be required to fully enjoy the
comfort and benefits of the unvented
hot water cylinder.
The hot water temperature can be set
to various requirements. For operation
with a solar system it is recommended
to set the auxiliary hot water
temperature to between 45°C and 55°C
(this is between 2 and 3 on the dial,
please refer to Figure 19 for
approximate
settings).
Higher
temperatures can cause tripping of the
high limit thermostat, introduce more
heat loss from the unit and increase
the risk of scalding significantly.
The solar thermostat should be set to
the highest temperature possible to
maximise solar gains. However, safety
(scalding) and limescale build up have
to be considered.
When turning on a hot tap for the first
time after a heat up period there might
be a short surge of water. This is
normal in unvented systems and does
not constitute a fault. Sometimes the
water may appear milky – this is due
to very fine air bubbles in the water
which will clear quickly.
10.2.1 Water
temperature
direct electric heating
Before removing the cover
from the immersion heater
isolate
appliance
using
isolating switch! Danger of
electrical shock! Only use
suitable electrically insulated
equipment
when
working
inside immersion housing.
The hot water temperature achieved by
the direct electric heating element can
be adjusted by removing the cover
from the immersion heater and
adjusting the dial up or down as
indicated in Figure 18.

10.2.2 Water
temperature
auxiliary heating
The water temperature achieved by the
auxiliary heating system depends on
the setting of the thermostat on:
- the cylinder AND
The adjustment at the cylinder is
carried out on the twin thermostat
fitted to the cylinder as shown in Figure
19. In the event that the high
temperature cut-out engages, it will be
necessary to manually reset the
thermostat. Use a suitable electrically
insulated tool to push the manual reset
button and inform the installer.
- the auxiliary / solar heating source
