Quick one - does anyone have any links to any immersion heater suppliers for 1 1/2" boss immersions that don't require a kidney replacement ..?

Been asked to swap an immersion on an old-ish tank that's on E10 and the boss is 1 1/2" BSP by the looks of it.

Found a couple at £130 or so but given an average immersion is about £25 would like something a bit cheaper as its for a pensioner !

This is a bit cheaper http://www.unventedc...-340-wsryp.html

There are some very expensive commercial heater at that size, that's probably what you have found.

A lot of the unvented cylinders use this size including Megaflow iirc, that's where you should direct your searches. They nearly all use this same type of thermostat that just plugs onto the top pf the heating element.
