    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    New cylinder has been in for a week or so with nothing coming out of the vent pipe or the overflow. Touch lots of wood, it's solved. Thanks for all the help.

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    Level in F&E tank went from near empty to near full overnight with boiler switched off, so I think I have to conclude it's the coil. Do all HW tanks (mine seems to be 450 x 900) have the inlets and outlets all in the same place, or are they all different just to make my life more difficult...

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    Will do. I've got my "calibrated" piece of wood to dip the level, and I haven't put the ladder away.

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    Doh! Now I understand. I thought you meant "boiler is knackered/kaput" and the ????? were just a replacement for an expletive, not "boiler is what make?".

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    Boiler is Trianco TRO 12/14 Mk3. Sorry, I should have said, and I shouldn't have edited the earlier post. :oops:

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    Thanks for the suggestion. Boiler was serviced a month or so ago. Looking at the report, nothing on thermostat performance, (all about oil burner) but the boiler over-temp light isn't on, and I just nudged the stat control on the boiler up a tad, and the boiler fired up, so my thoughts are it's...

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    I'll switch it on then, and discover the joys of running the central heating on one of the hottest days of the year!!

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    No indication of blockage with the magnet trick, but I guess there could be non-ferrous blockage. Cold water tank ball-valve does drip slowly but steadily, perhaps one drip every few seconds, and doesn't overflow, but then perhaps a big tank always get some water taken from it often enough...

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    I am showing my ignorance of course, but can you explain what this means in slightly more layman's terms. The "H" that I have in the airing cupboard is: bottom left 22mm from boiler top left 22mm to vent over F&E tank horizontal part of H is ~150mm long top right is 15mm feed from F&E tank...

    Overflow from Feed and Expansion Tank

    I seem to have a problem, or combination of problems, with my central heating / hot water system. It is a fairly conventional pumped system, oil-fired boiler, pump, two 2-way valves, HW cylinder, radiators, F&E tank in loft (base same level as cold water tank, so F&E water level well below cold...

    Plaster stains on oak door

    The guys doing the plastering managed to get some render and plaster on my nice oak door. They had agreed to protect the door, but I guess they forgot. The door is fairly new, and had been waxed, not stained, painted, varnished, etc. It cost me about £150 a year or 2 ago. Now there are...

    LPG connection questions

    I will be having my LPG cooker installed in a couple of weeks, by a CORGI company of course. The gas pipe needs to run round 3 walls, then across the floor about 700mm. (Her ladyship wants the new cooker where the wall between kitchen and dining room was before we knocked through.) There is no...
