Hello! My partner and I are planning to purchase an ex-council flat which has this immersion cylinder in the bathroom. The flat itself has a separate communal heating system, so this cylinder would only be used to provide hot water to the flat. We are going to get an electric shower, so this means only the taps and washing machine would need water from this cylinder (unless I’m being stupid). Is it worth replacing this cylinder, leaving it as it is, or getting a timer installed (if it isn’t already – we can’t tell!) How do they work? Are they awful, considering this one was installed/made in 2002…. we want to be environmentally friendly and cost efficient! Sure you can tell but we’re 1st time buyers! Thanks a lot.
