    Look at the valve. Powerflush is irrelevant here.

    CH Pump running constantly

    It's probably a zone valve switch sticking. Does the boiler fire occasionally too?

    installing sink in room with no pipes currently

    You mean basin! It's possible but it's the landlord's property so if he doesn't want it done, find another room with a basin! :wink:

    Surrey flange ??

    Xr4x4 has given you the answer to this. You would ideally have at least a 50 gallon cwsc feeding the hot cylinder.

    Water Softener query (sorry...)

    Water Softener query (sorry...)

    Advise/help needed with poor water pressure
