Hello

We have an old megaflo - moved into the property summer last year.

Have had the airbubble recharged (once after moving in & just recently - however it is something I will attempt myself next time pressure drops / tundish drips as seems straightforward).

However the water temp is not terribly hot (I prefer hotter water) - seems to be set at around 50 degrees C on the indirect controller accessible from outside of tank.

I have now set to 55ish (as far as I can tell as not clear from knob where setting mark is !). I think I have turned the correct way as I turned one way until "click" heard, which I assume is the off position, then rotated other way until approx. 55 positioned at 9 o'clock (50 was there before).

Am I doing the right thing ? Will I cause any significant problems turning this up (apart from scolding !) ?

Thanks

If it clicked when turned anticlockwise then it wasn't up tho the thermostat set temp - It clicks when the contacts open and close.

I presume the heat source is a gas boiler? What is the temp setting on that??

No - heating source is the immersion heater controlled by this indirect controller outside of jacket, run on Eco7 electricity at night (boilers are not connected to the tank).

Can you post a picture for me please? There would usually be a thermostat on the immersion under the cap
