what do you mean by bung it
would i have to drain down the hot water cylinder has well as heating

Dustbin or skip :LOL: :LOL:

in the corner behind the cylinder ;)

To bung the system you get yourself a radiator bung kit which is 2 conical rubber plugs....one goes in the feed pipe from the f&e tank and one goes over the vent pipe. open up a rad drain to drain some water off and create a vacuum lock, then tighten it up and go and undo your pump. Some more water will drain out but not a lot. It takes big balls first couple of times and not all systems will bung, but if it works it is so much quicker. Just buy two sets of bungs....one to keep with you if it all goes wrong.
