    Hot water running v slow

    boiler is a Ideal classic (not a condensing boiler) and it does the hot water and the heating. There is a hot water tank in the airing cupboard and a tank in the loft. The bathrooms are upstairs. The cloakroom and the kitchen are downstairs.

    Hot water running v slow

    The hot water in the bathroom, ensuite and kitchen runs very slow. There is no problem in the cloakroom. In fact, if the hot water tap in the bathroom is running, you cannot run hot water anywhere else (apart from the cloakroom) as nothing comes out of the tap. Is this an airlock? Thanks...

    why repressurise accumulator tank every 3 months?

    Took old accumulator tank to tip yesterday. Noticed label on it saying tank should be repressurised every 3 months.... Why? We never did this - basically because we didn't know you had to. Is this why it needed to be replaced when only 4 years old? This is something we could easily do...

    I got a manual from Ideal themselves. All contact numbers etc are on their website. It took them 2-3 weeks but I still got one.

    accumulator tank

    Posted on this site a week or so ago under Problem with Pump - whenever we run any water, we can hear the pump clanking on and off all the time. Engineer been out today - he is unable to pressurise our accumlator tank. He says he could replace the membrane inside and the schrayder (?) valve...

    neff oven - fan not working

    We have a Neff oven B1451. The fan is not working but the oven still heats up - not much good on fan oven setting but can use it as a conventional oven. Is it likely to be the fan motor and is this easy to replace? All help gratefully received. Thanks

    problem with pump

    Accumulator perhaps? It's a sealed unit - no ballcock. Label on it saying it should be repressurised every 3 months

    problem with pump

    Engineer been today. Our water system works like this... Tank in loft above garage which feeds into another tank in loft in house (both lofts on same level). This second tank has no pressure and when he repressurised it, the pressure went down again almost immediately. He thinks it might be...

    problem with pump

    When I say pumped water system, I think I am misleading you. For example, if we have a power cut we can only get water in the kitchen and downstairs toilet as there is no electricity to get the water to the upstairs bathroom and other downstairs bathroom as it gets "pumped" there. Does this...

    problem with pump

    Yes, pump does cold water too. We are rural but have a mains water supply. As I understand it , we have a pumped water system because pressure would be low because of the size of the house. It is a bungalow in the shape of an L.

    problem with pump

    OK, done that and can hear pump cutting in and out all the time. Very loud clunky noise which until about a week ago, we only heard once the water had finished running and it only did it once.
