WARNING
HANDLING
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration,
service or maintenance can cause serious
injury or property damage. Refer to this
manual. For assistance or additional
information, consult a qualified installer or
service agency.
Before uncrating, check for shipping damage.
Report any damage to your carrier. Note
damage on bill of lading or delivery receipt
and file a claim.
CAUTION
The recommended temperature for normal
residential use is 120°F. The dial on the aquastat
does not always reflect the out-coming water
temperature and it could occasionally exceed
120°F. Variation in outcoming temperature
could be based on factors including, but not
limited to, usage patterns and type of
installation. Test water at the tap nearest to
the water heater and storage tank.
WARNING
Hotter water increases the risk of scald injury.
Before adjusting the water temperature setting,
read this instruction manual. Temperatures at
which injury occurs vary with the person’s age
and the length of exposure. The slower
reaction time of children, elderly, or
physically or mentally challenged persons
increases the scalding hazard to them. It is
recommended that lower water temperatures
be used where these exposure hazards exist.
Households with small children or invalids
may require a temperature setting less than
120°F to prevent accidental contact with hot
water. To produce less than 120°F, use point-ofuse temperature limiting devices.
If higher water temperature is needed in part
of the water system, automatic temperature
limiting devices must be used on all lines to
water taps.

WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR NEW STORAGE TANK
Check the new equipment to see if all components are in good condition. The T&P valves,
aquastat and immersion well are supplied by the installer.
TEMPERATURE CONTROLS
Bock storage tanks are equipped with 3⁄4'' tappings for the installation of immersion
temperature controls. Any temperature control approved for use in hot water systems is
acceptable. Bock recommends the use of a control with an adjustable differential so that the
differential can be adjusted to match that of your heat source controls. Setting the storage
tank temperature control 5° lower than the water heater temperature control is also
recommended. This is to ensure that when the storage tank calls for heat and the circulator is
turned on, the water being circulated is cool enough to cause the water heater to start. If the
burner does not start then the circulator could run for long periods of time, wasting energy.
Note: The recommended water temperature for domestic use is 120°. Higher water
temperatures can result in scalding. If higher or lower water temperatures are needed, point
of use tempering devices are recommended.
T&P VALVES
Temperature and pressure relief valves must be installed on all storage tanks by the installer.
All Bock storage tanks are also equipped with 3⁄4'' or 1'' tappings for the installation of
properly sized temperature and pressure relief valves. These are located on the side near the
top of vertical tanks and on the top surface of horizontal storage tanks. Relief valves are rated
for maximum system pressure and temperature as well as Btu input of the heating appliance.
This information is normally supplied on a metal tag attached to the end of the valve. For a
normal domestic water system maximum system pressure is 150 psi and temperature limit is
210°F. The Btu per hour rating will be listed next to the AGA or CSA logo on the tag under
the temperature and pressure data. Be certain to use a relief valve that is rated for the Btu per
hour input of the heating appliance. For example, if you are connecting a storage tank to a
water heater with a 50,000 Btu per hour input then the relief valve installed in the storage
tank must be rated for a minimum of 50,000 Btu per hour.
PIPING
Bock storage tanks are equipped with many different fitting sizes and configurations
depending on intended use. However, all storage tanks will have some common features. All
Bock storage tanks will have two or more anode rods installed through the top of the storage
tank. Bock storage tanks typically have three large tappings, normally 2 inches NPT or larger,
in the side of the tank. The exact location of these fittings will vary depending on tank
model and any special options ordered. The tapping nearest the bottom of the tank is used
as a cold water inlet and/or a connection to return water from the storage tank to the heat
source. A second tapping of similar size located higher up the side of the tank is used to
return heated water from the heat source. A hot water outlet is located on the top of the tank.

INSTALLATION
There are many factors to consider when installing a storage tank. How will the system be
used? What are the hot water demands of the system? Why is a storage tank being installed?
Are the peak demands frequent such as a home with multiple showers or very intermittent
such as a church kitchen? The answers to these questions will help you determine what your
system should look like. The following drawings will show you some typical installations.
If your system does not fit one of these applications, remember the basic principles that are
illustrated here:
1. Hot water should exit the top of the tank.
2. If cold water enters the storage tank, it should enter through a fitting on the lower side of
the storage tank. Examples: boiler system, reverse storage system
3. A circulator suitable for use with potable water must be used to move cool water from the
storage tank to the heat source during stand-by periods.
4. The circulator will normally draw cool water out of a large fitting near the bottom on the
side of the storage tank and return it to the heat source. (The reverse storage system is an
exception to this.)
5. Heated water will return to the storage tank from the heat source to the large fitting nearer
the center of the storage tank or the large fitting near the top of the side.

of the storage tank is connected
to the cold water inlet or
recirculation return/drain valve fitting of the water heater with a circulator. The circulator is
controlled by the storage tank aquastat and draws cool water off the bottom of the tank and
returns it to the water heater for reheating. As a result, heated water is returned from the
water heater to raise the temperature of the storage tank. A check valve is also used to
prevent cold water entering the water heater from flowing backwards through the circulator
and diluting the hot water in the storage tank.

DRAWING #2
The reverse storage tank system,

This system brings cold water into

the bottom of the storage tank.
Water flows out the top of the

storage tank and into the cold water
inlet of the water heater. All hot
water for the facility flows out the
top of the water heater. A circulator is connected to the hot water outlet of the water heater
to draw hot water back into the storage tank. In times of low hot water use this pump can be
turned off by a switch or timer preventing the storage tank from being heated. A check valve
is also used as in the other systems to prevent cold water from diluting the hot water stream.

DRAWING #3
Drawing #3 shows a storage tank
connected to a boiler. This system
is essentially the same as the typical
system shown in drawing #1. The
only significant difference is the
heat source. In this configuration
cold water is free to enter the
storage tank through the bottom
fitting or by flowing through the
boiler before entering the storage
tank. No check valve is used.

MAINTENANCE
All Bock storage tanks are equipped with magnesium anode rods. These rods must be checked
annually and replaced when they become worn to 3⁄8-inch diameter or less to ensure long
tank life. The replacement interval will depend on water conditions. Failure to service and
replace the anodes will shorten tank life and void the tank warranty.
Flush the storage tank periodically to remove sediment. ASME tanks are typically equipped
with hand holes to aid in sediment removal.
