Forgot to mention; I turned off the stoptap and drained all the water from
the hot water system. Then I unscrewed the immersion heater from the tank
and water started to flow from the opening. I quickly put the immersion
heater back in and checked that both H & C taps were open. Tried again;
water still there. Where could this water be coming from please? It's an
exchanger-type with a coil inside which is fed by a gas back-boiler.
you can`t drain the cylinder through the taps.
if there is no drain tap fitted to the cold water inlet
connection you will have to syphon it down using a hose.
the life span of cylinders can vary a lot (i`ve had to change one after only
two years) a lot of variables come into i.e. water quality etc.
