Water tanks

The cold water tank is usually in the loft and you should NOT insulate underneath it. The water tank needs to be underneath the blanket you are creating to stop it freezing.

It is important too to insulate any pipes running out of it or keep them underneath the jacket you put around the tank. Pipe insulation should probably be taped into position using elephant or duct tape.

if the tank is raised you need to insulate under the tank

(if the underside of the tank is 300mm higher than the top of the 270mm insulation it needs insulating, any less and you can leave alone)
