the air isn't actually air!
Read on another website (can't remember which one) and someone said it might not be air/running water but could be hydrogen bubbles caused by corrosion moving around the system...He described lighting a match then slowly opening the bleed valve and you should hear...
the gauge is fine..dropping the air out reduces the pressure.
bled the rads last night when the system had cooled and got some air out of a couple and topped it up again. unscrewed the screw ontop of the pump and got a little bit of air out.
pump fault/low pressure light was flashing...
i let the boiler cool down then restarted it....stuck my ear in and the howling/ humming noise seems to be coming from the pump...goes away after a while..
also the pump fault/low pressure warning light flashes, but the pressure never drops below 1 bar
when i turned the boiler off at the control it made a short groan sound...could it be the pump?
getting a lot of air in the rads :cry:
the engineer hadn't put the air release screw that goes ontop of the pump back properly..it was just sat at a slight angle
Does this let air in as...
there is something very wrong with the CH now :shock:
The boiler made a howling noise this morning when the wife turned it on :shock: the crackling sound is getting louder...the wife had a bath and when she turned the water off the sound of running water could be heard in the pipes and...
now i've had them balanced i don't want to touch them :lol:
i've just found a container of powerflushing chemical and a couple of tools the engineer has left behind...i'll get him to have a look when he comes to collect them :mrgreen:
I've just had the CH powerflushed and balanced and 1 radiator now seems to be making a crackling noise :shock:
Is that normal after a powerflush?
seemed to die down a bit when temperature reduced
thanks for that..interesting reading :shock:
"Never use modern acrylic or emulsion paints - they are death to old walls - they are plastic - they trap moisture and cause damp!! "
what would be the best paint to use to allow the wall to breathe?
*edit* title should read 1 and a 1/2 to 2 meters from ground..wouldn't let me change it :oops: guesstimation as i have no tape measure either :oops:
Due to a problem with my boiler i've noticed that there are salt deposits on the wall behind the boiler :shock:
now this area has no...
i've had a second opinion and the guy said there is damp (he never tested the section of wall where i believe the problem to be) and reckons the majority of it is coming from next door but he wants £468 quid to sort it...
he wants to charge...
£15 to remove the skirting board
