Unusual Support for an Expansion Tank

Sean Steer recently carried out a Roof Inspection in Caterham on a property where the expansion tank to the heating system, shown in the picture below, was a small tank resting on a plank held up by copper pipework. You see many different types of support for tanks in roof spaces but this is the first time he said he had seen this detail. It has been like this for over 20 years so it has proved the test of time but he did recommend that some extra support be provided just in case.
