I am installing an expansion tank because the T&P valve on my water heater is opening on each heating cycle. I understand that the tank must be installed on the cold water inlet between the water heater and the backflow preventer on the watermeter. Can it be installed anywhere between those two points or should it be located on the pipe leading directly to the heater? The spot that I want to install the tank so that it is out of the way is before the branch that leads to the water heater/washer. All the diagrams that I see have it located immediatly before the heater. I didn't know if this was nessasary or just for ease of illustration. I appreciate any information or feedback...thanks
