    Default Watts Expansion Tank

    Anyone know where I might be able to find a Watts ILT-5 expansion tank? The internal bladder on mine is leaking and the company no longer makes this model.

    Is there a specific reason why a different model will not work in your application...

    I can't think of why there would be...

    Default tank

    They are generic, so ANY brand tank will work for your application. And as a practical matter, the size is somewhat irrelevent also.

    The Watts ILT-5 isn't a standard expansion tank. It's an "inline" tank. It doesnt thread into a tee. That being said, you can just re-plumb your line so you can use a "normal" expansion tank. There isn't a whole lot to it. I think we have a few of the Watts tanks left on the shelf, but down the road you are going to have to change it to a standard tank anyways since they don't make that style anymore.

    For those of you that never seen the Watts ILT-5 expansion tank here is a PDF its on page 9 http://www.blueridgecompany.com/docu...mExpansion.pdf I agree with Mattbee24 that you should just replumb it to accept a standard expansion tank.
