    Power flush machine

    I have an option to buy a used Fernox PowerFlush Machine MKII and 2 MagnaClean Filters for £850. Have you heard any problems regarding these machines. If I opt for the Kamco I'm looking at £1500 new with a magnaclean filter. Cheers

    Hot rads upstairs cold rads downstairs

    Gents. Thanks for all your help. I am not a heating engineer and am at a loss to know what I can do next. I thought the cold feed is from the F&E tank. All the rads are full of water. How is this stopping the rads downstairs getting hot?

    small crack in base of cold water tank

    Problem solved. Drained down the tank as I couldn't risk a flood as Boilerman rightly pointed out. Presumed crack was a mark from all the crap in there. Cleaned the tank and went to refill still flummoxed to the source of the leak. Water spewing out of the top of the inlet valve. Must have...

    small crack in base of cold water tank

    Hi, Can anyone advise on a small crack in the base of my plastic cold water tank. Is it possible to repair it. It must be resting on something quite small as you could cover it with a 10 pence piece. It is leaking about a mug of water per day. Appreciate any advice. Thanks Mark
