As you know, I've been working on my CH this week, which has involved
draining and filling the CH.
When I went to check in the loft, I found a very slight drip coming
from the header tank around the overflow outlet.
The nut is a pig to reach because the tank is small, the ball cock is
in the way, and it's full of water! It seems finger tight to me. What
is the best thing to do?
Should I drain the tank, remove the ball cock and try and get a
spanner inside to tighten it further?
Should I be checking/replacing/adding a washer?
Should I use some plumber's mait/sealant around the outside?
Thanks in advance.
