Glad I found this.
"I always like to support industry pioneers, especially when they don't take their status for granted. The price point of this tank is exceptional, and Amtrol components have been essential parts of my closed-loop solar system for years. After adding a 3rd panel, the need for a pressure relief buffer developed when our system would maximize at 180 and panel boil-off at shutdown and drainback would occur. This pressure spike would trigger our 20# pressure relief valve, resulting in compounding loss of circulating fluid. This looks to be the perfect physical fit and solution, with minimal modifications necessary to the existing layout. Quality seems excellent."
Very fast shipping
This is to replace an identical unit and the price was ideal. Fast shipping, good communications
Great prices, super shipping and web site.
Can I use this tank for my domestic hot water and can this tank be mounted sideways instead of vertical

No and no. The Extrol series is for closed loop heating applications only. These tanks are for vertical installation only since horizontal mounting will create uneven pressure at the connection. For domestic hot water applications, you'll need Therm-X-Trol series.

Hi, Is there a way I can test my Amtrol 15 tank to know if the bladder is still good? Been having some problems with my floor heat. We fixed a leaky pipe but still don't have any pressure. Thinking I would put 15 psi in it and see if it sticks. Is that the best way to test that? How soon would I know if the bladder is working? Thanks

The air valve on the expansion tank is Schrader type, so a regular gauge used to check tire pressure could be used.
