In order to acquire those virtues, men needed to fight wars. Thus, one major benefit of expansion was glory! If a consul won a great battle his prestige increased. ... Another important reason for Roman expansion is also related to the frequency of warfare in the early period of Rome's development
Roman virtues were warrior virtues that were appropriate to farmers and warriors. In order to acquire those virtues, men needed to fight wars. Thus, one major benefit of expansion was glory! If a consul won a great battle his prestige increased
As plumbers know, the expansion tank equalizes pressure throughout the plumbing system by providing a space for hot water to flow into. Without an expansion tank, pressure would be distributed to the entire plumbing system, straining it and decreasing its lifespan
Space for expansion in the system is necessary because water pressure builds rapidly in the house as the water heater heats up. Expansion tank to the rescue. The expansion tank contains air, which is highly compressible
The expansion tank is designed to handle the thermal expansion of water as it heats up in the water heater, preventing excessive water pressure. If water pressure gets to high it can damage valves in plumbing fixtures, joints in supply pipes and the water heater itself
Expansion tanks can be installed horizontally. The recommendation that they are installed vertically is to reduce stress on the (normally copper) pipe, which should be adequately supported even if the tank is suspended vertically
Can a water heater thermal expansion tank be installed sideways/horizontally? Most expansion tanks are designed to be installed vertically (stem up or stem down). You can install one sideways, but it will shorten the lifespan unless it is designed and specified by the manufacturer for horizontal installation
