Is it possible to drain the coil without the rest of the upstairs heating system. Cylinder is located in 1st floor airing cupboard with the boiler underneath on ground floor.
Leaking soldered joint shown in green directly below air bleed vent.
I need to fix it.
Any help much appreciated!
I have an option to buy a used Fernox PowerFlush Machine MKII and 2 MagnaClean Filters for £850. Have you heard any problems regarding these machines. If I opt for the Kamco I'm looking at £1500 new with a magnaclean filter.
Gents. Thanks for all your help. I am not a heating engineer and am at a loss to know what I can do next. I thought the cold feed is from the F&E tank. All the rads are full of water. How is this stopping the rads downstairs getting hot?
Hi folks! Anyone good at problem solving.
I have a traditional open vented, pumped Y plan heating system. Put cleaner in the system a few weeks ago to stop the kettling coming from the boiler. Drained down a couple of days ago refilled and added inhibitor.
The problem - I have hot...
Problem solved. Drained down the tank as I couldn't risk a flood as Boilerman rightly pointed out.
Presumed crack was a mark from all the crap in there. Cleaned the tank and went to refill still flummoxed to the source of the leak. Water spewing out of the top of the inlet valve.
