First of all - I know nothing about DIY!
I've got a problem with my hot water. The system I have in my flat is
a big black plastic water tank with a few copper pipes attached, above
an insulated hot water tank. The hot water tank has two immersion
heating elements, one at the top and one at the bottom.
THe lower one hasn't worked since I moved in in Jan03 - suspect
something wrong with the switch on the wall as the light doesn't light
up when 'on'. (However there is no place to change the fuse in the
switch....??) I have been using the upper element. However this has
stopped working. It had flipped the switch at the main fuse box - so
I put a new fuse in the wall switch and tried again - started working,
so went to bed and then it had blown the fuse again when I got up the
next day. Does this mean that the heating element has broken? If
this is the case - how much will getting a plumber to put a new one in
many thanks for any advice offered
