A direct copper cylinder is normally required as an easy job for a plumber but when an indirect is involved then the central heating system has to be drained down and extra work on the flow and return of the boiler pipe is also required. You will find these type of cylinders in the standard 2 to 3 bedroom house at the size of 36 by 18 and will include enough hout water for 1 bathroom. If the house has a bigger cylinder or the pipe size is generally bigger then the time for this would be estimate as 2 hours and may require a second person.
