      I am struggling to understand about Balance cold Water do you know how does it work in the Megaflow system? what is the main cause if T&P constantly Dripping in the tundish Because what I recognized is that hot water cut off in the middle and just come and go out.

        The balanced cold water supply is usually found on the combi valve that feeds the cylinder, that is then used to supply an outlet that needs the h&c water at the same pressure.
        Couple of reasons why the T&P valve could be passing but as it's a safety device ideally you want to get a qualified engineer (G3) in the look at the cylinder and have it serviced/repaired as soon as you can.

      Here is an awful rough sketch of what I propose lol https://i.imgur.com/tisk9Vv.jpg

      T into the 15mm plastic pipe with a speedfit T (yellow). Red signifies copper pipe. Speedfit elbow (yellow) to copper pipe (red). Then isolation valve (green) to copper pipe to double check valve (blue) to copper pipe to Speedfit elbow (yellow) which would connect to the tap pipe from outside. Sound OK? Sound awful?
