Hot Water HELP

Post by SteveB1973 » Wed Jan 23, 2019 12:50 pm

Hi - we have a hot water tank in the airing cupboard and over the last month or so hot water to ALL taps has slowed down to almost just a drop coming out of ALL taps

Is this due scale/sediment in the tank??

Thanks in advance

:welcomeuhm: Unlikely to be scale, have you checked the storage tank in the loft ? is it full and if so is there anything blocking the outlet ?

Hot water comes out of the hot tap from the HW cylinder only because cold water is coming in at the bottom to replace it, so as wine~O says have a look in the cold feed tank in the loft, you are looking to see if something has fallen in the tank and is sitting over the tank outlet. If there is just remove it.
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?
