    firstly, please forgive my ignorance if I'm asking something silly..

    I'm thinking of applying x200 in the system to reduce some boiler noise. I live in a flat with Vented system. As suggested per instruction, I can just pour the liquid into the f&e tank on the loft. I think the hot water, power shower and CH all use the cylinder.. we also have the f&e cold water from the tank too. (by testing the cold water tap in the bathroom) If I pour the liquid in the tank firstly it won't circulate as water runs through tap and secondly it could be something that I drink? I'm totally confused. Please could someone help me..

    That's picture is of a pressured system, so no help to you.

    You need to put it in the smaller central heating tank, not the larger main cold water tank.

    I would also advise draining a small amount of water out the system first, otherwise the liquid will just sit in the tank and go nowhere.

    You may have a vented cylinder, but your heating system may be vented or sealed. It might even be primatic.

    A vented heating system will have a small F&E tank. The large tank which stores your cold water is not an F&E tank: it is a storage cistern. Do NOT put chemicals in you cold water storage cistern.

    A sealed system will have a (red) pressure vessel, which may be integral to the boiler, and a pressure gauge, but no F&E tank.

    Before you go tipping chemicals in tanks, determine what those tanks contain.
