    Hi

    We live in a new build (2015) and the Cold Inlet on the water tank in the airing cupboard has started dripping. Its not dripping from where it goes into the cylinder but rather the bit right at the end, see image.

    Water and heating seem to be working ok.

    Any ideas? IMG_0721 (1).jpeg
