We installed some new taps at a friends flat. Slight problem in that we
couldnt find the stopcock (subssequently discover its in next doors
Anyway, we managed to isolate the kitchen sink ok and installed the new
Now, problem is, that once all the valves we shut off were re-opened, no hot
water came back in to fill the storage tank (or at least if it is, its
doing it at a dribble..)
The storagfe tank had to be drained down to perform the works, but cant work
out why no water is coming in to re-fill the system.
The system is of a sealed typ (no open header tank). There is a grey
pressure vessel in the loft crawlspace that has a red valve on top that
hisses when turned, and a pressure guage on it. The pressure guage reads 0
atm, but will rise a little (to a 1/4 bar) if left overnight.. I assume this
is the pressure releife system, as its hooked into the drain pipe that pokes
out of the outside wall..
If we leavce the system for several hours, the tank seems to fill a bit, but
turning a tap on quickly drains this (in like 15 seconds..)
We had the gas turned off as well, but that is now back on and the pilot on
the boiler is lit.
Any sugestions people?
