    fully pumped or gravity fed

    stardanny, there's another valve at the tank, see pics. the only visible pipework is what you can see at the boiler and the tank, if there's anything else i can do to help let me know.

    Alpha CD28C Losing Pressure - no leaks

    Called Alpha, don't know why i didn't do it earlier, they sent an engineer next day, opened boiler and replaced air vent(?), i could see that inside the boiler it had been leaking and due to the heat it was evaporating almost immediately, no issues so far but i guess i will know in a couple of...

    Alpha CD28C Losing Pressure - no leaks

    Sorry, I'm still not 100% sure what you mean so i've taken a pic, could you point out to me where these isolating valves are. Also, in the picture where the arrow is pointing there is what looks like a brown sticky coating on the thread, any ideas what that would be, also got some leakage...

    Alpha CD28C Losing Pressure - no leaks

    Many thanks for the replies, appreciated. OK so i've had no leaks from the bathroom radiator for a couple of days but the pressure is still dropping, assuming i have no leaks in the pipework or radiators is there anything which could be awry in the boiler which would cause a loss in pressure...

    Alpha CD28C Losing Pressure - no leaks

    Thanks for the reply Tony, I'm not questioning your expertise but if only a few drips (and i mean a handful over the course of a week) can cause this to drop of 1bar why is it that when i have to top it up it sounds like i have to put litres of water back into the system? I just find it hard...

    I have some damp patches in the corners of the ceiling and on the walls of my loft, i've had a look out through the velux window and taken a few pictures, there looks to be gaps in the lead flashings in places like the lead has shrunk and it looks to be corroded, not sure if this is the cause...

    Shower enclosure waste problem

    i have already used a mr muscle drain unblocker as i thought there may have been a blockage further along the waste pipe due to the fact that the drain pipe wasn't covered during the work i had done, i had tiles removed from the walls along with black lime and i thought some dust\debris may have...
