    crackling noise in 1 radiator after powerflush

    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...

    crackling noise in 1 radiator after powerflush

    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 pump?

    ongoing problem with damp in porch

    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 £255 to...

    will no one rid me of this troublesome damp smell!!

    I think i may have found the source of the problem... I painted the skirting boards then decided to paint the bottom of the walls in the corners next to the door. after 3 and a half hours one side is dry but the other side right at the bottom (which is below the membrane dpc) is still wet...
