I am looking at removing the wood burner in my lounge that has a wetback connected to the hot water cylinder.

 

My question is, when removing the wetback, can I just run a pipe between the outlet and inlet of the hot water cylinder, creating a short loop that replaced the wetback plumbing? Or, can I simply cap the outlet from the hot water cylinder?

 

The cylinder is from the 70's and I estimate the same for the burner, if that make a difference. There is no way of shutting off the wet back piping that I can see.

Just screw in a couple of bungs into the HW cylinder. (You may want to drain it first)

Yep. Don't bung the pipes from the wetback though. You might have an explosion.

Nope, wood burner is coming completely out and hopefully sold, so won't be used.
