    Quick question if you can help please.........

    I have got a really old boiler, hot water tank, gravity fed system.

    If I have the heating come on on its own the house is lovely and toastie, if I set the water to come on on its own it heats up the tank in half an hour, but if I have both come on together then I have luke warm rads and luke warm water?

    I have got my pump on number 3, the tank stat at 65 degrees, what is going wrong? Is it just becuase I have an old system?

    I hasn't been an issue since we moved in a couple of years ago, but we have had our first child recently and as I'm sure you can imagine heating and hot water is imperative now :(

    Cheers

    Its an old oil boiler, I cannot find a brand on it. 10 rads fed off it and the thermo is set at 80 if I recall correctly?

    Thanks for the help!
