    Hi, thanks for the reply, I moved the lever on the buzzing box,, also the feed tanks seems ok. The flow pipe dips but only a fraction. All same results tho. Is it possible to have a weak pump or could the system be clogged up? It's been in nearly 40 years I would think. That is if it was put in when the house was built.

    So are pumps interchangeable? I believe this one is a potterton\myson. It seems that there are a lot more grundfos around.

    Yes, pumps are interchangeable. One more "old skool " thing to try - needs 2 people - one in loft by Feed Cistern. The other, operating a tap, which has a hose connected to it, the other end goes on that drain cock above the boiler. *Watertight connections needed*- jubilee clip on the drain cock. Open the drain cock fully, and carefully see if you can back fill through it. Fill the hose with water before connecting - you don't want to inject a bubble of air. One person keeps an eye on the water level ( so it doesn't overcome the overflow pipe) Boiler off but pump running - see how it goes, good for shifting obscure air locks;)

    Well, decided to get a second opinion. This was an older more experienced guy and he said that he thought that it was connected up backwards. He gave us a price for fixing it. I said that I had spent out so much would he mind if I don't pay unless it was working. He agreed. A couple of hours later, it is working great. I have asked the first lot if there is any chance of bit of a refund but not hoping much. Thanks so much for everyones help. I know where to go next time.

    Well they come from miles away and obviously a bum outfit. So apart from going with a gun (which I ain't got) I don't know the best way of going about it. I have asked but no reply as yet

    On the plus side, Now you know who to call next time you need some thing doing.
    Glad you're up and running, sounds like you've had a bad time.

    Moral of the story - get installers to demonstrate the WORKING system before making payment!

    Sorry that I have not replied earlier but for some reason the notifications went into the junk folder. I eventually got £35 back off the rogue traders. Just peanuts but better than nothing I guess. When I have calmed down I will send nice feedback review for them. Yes the pipes are tidy and the filter that was stolen from me has been replaced. I will include pic.
