    Water has begun to pour out of my overflow pipe (not the toilet overflow). It only started within the last week and is intermittent. Running off hot & cold water doesn't seem to help, neither does turning off the boiler (which is usually on 24/7). The pipe doesn't appear to be from the cold water storage tank, which is in the loft, as it exits the external wall between the ground floor & first floor, about a foot below the outlet pipes from the bathroom. Can anyone tell me what this is for, what the problem is likely to be & whether I need to call a plumber. Help is needed urgently if I want to avoid getting a shower when I step out the back door!

    Have a look into your cold water tank and the smaller feed and expansion tank for your boiler. when the the water is coming out of the pipe. One of them may be causing the overflow. If so it may be that your float valve in one of the tanks needs repairing or replacing
