Positioning of cylinder thermostat
When used with factory insulated hot water cylinders, sufficient insulation must be removed (if it isn’t already) to allow the base of the cylinder thermostat to be in contact with the cylinder wall. The cylinder thermostat should be mounted approx one third of the way up from the bottom of the cylinder and on the opposite side to the heating coil. Most cylinder thermostats are supplied complete with a metal spring band, which assures a good clamping.
