Re: Intermittent Overflow of Central Heating Header Tank

Hello This is a common problem people buy taps they like or look nice but the problem is the flexible tap tail will sometime have a very small bore which is fine for mains pressure hot water systems but when you rely on gravity from your tank in the loft people notice a big reduction of pressure.

Re: Central Heating in Loft Extension not Working

have you tried turning the radiators off in the house at the rad valves to see if radiators get hot in loft?

Possible air lock
