    Bubbling hot water going to header tank

    Hi, I am looking for a bit of advice. Our Gledhill hot water tank was installed incorrectly 18 months ago and has been sending bubbling hot water to our plastic header tank in the loft every time we turned the heating on. We first noticed an issue with a leak in our bedroom ceiling which we...

    Insulating 50-gallon water header tank

    In my loft I have a circular 50-gallon cold water header tank which had a lash-up of insulation. (It still does.) An Internet search of suppliers in my town (population 170,000+) failed to find a suitable jacket, so I ordered one on-line (where there was hardly any choice). It proved to be...

    Warm water in hot water header tank

    Hi all I have a problem with my hot water header tank getting warm water into it from the bottom of the header tank (not the hooked overflow/expansion pipe. Hence the header tank then reaches the overflow level and the overflow trickles out. I have changed the ball valve washers thinking it was...

    Header tank overflowing and water is hot in the tank.

    Hi all, Just recently noticed the overflow has started pouring water out, there are three tanks in the loft and I'm quite sure this is from the heating. We have two boilers, one for water and one for the heating, it's an 8 bed Victorian house (bed and breakfast) I went into the loft to see what...

    Biological growth in header tank.

    In the summer I had the boiler and 6 (out of 10) radiators replaced. Last week I discovered a growth in the plastic header tank, which until then had always contained clear water. I skimmed the growth off but it is starting to appear again. What caused it and how do I remedy it? Thanks

    Hot water venting into header tank.

    Hi, I’m having a problem with hw venting into the small header tank. This happens when it’s set to hw only or CH. I’ve tried lowering the water level in the header tank but it makes no difference. The incoming hot water is being taken back into system via the primary circuit 15mm supply so...

    Small header tank in loft and overflow

    Hi I have noticed dripping from the overflow pipe coming from the header tank (smaller tank in loft) not sure why but I cannot adjust the ball value thing or how to. I have removed some water from the tank but there is a copper pipe which should sit in the tank but not where it feeds to Any...

    Moving Water Header Tank

    I have a loft main water tank. I want to lower its height (at the moment raised higher in the loft by 1 meter to give more pressure I think) so I can put it in the eaves ready for a future loft conversion. I like the idea of a header tank for water shortages and being able to flush the loo if...

    Hot water goes to header tank when powerflushing forward flow,help!

    Hi I have a gravity-fed system I have flushed it out a couple of times and it has had x400 in the system for the last 4 weeks. There was one radiator with stubborn flow left which doesn't heat up enough, it has 8mm pipes which I think is the problem, rather than the rad as I have had the rad...

    Hot water venting into header tank

    Hi guys. I have an issue with the header tank in my loft being full of hot water. The vent from the cylinder goes into the cold water tank so it’s not coming from there. There is a vent pipe that comes from what I am assuming is the hot feed to the cylinder coil (50mm copper looks like it come...

    Water venting into header tank

    Hi Guys I’m no expert so excuse the question if I’ve done something wrong. I noticed some persistent noises happening with my heating. I therefore decided to use the 3 stage fernox fluids. F3 then F1 then F2. This meant that I had to completely drain system and refill a couple of times. I...

    Header Tank Temperature

    Just been in loft and noticed header tank on my vented system is hot. I understand that this acts as a feed for heating and expansion when heating water gets hot. Is this normal for tank to get very warm? Both the feed pipe and vent pipe are hot but no water coming out of vent. Never noticed...

    Header tank valve replaced, noise diagnosis help!

    An easy one I’m hoping. Replaced main water header tank valve as kept getting stuck and overflowing. No probs with the replacement but since completing, the noise of water running through the pipes as it refills is very loud, so much so that we dare not flush the toilet late at night as the...

    Only one Storage Tank ????

    Hi, Can someone please explain to me why I have only one tank in the loft. I thought there was always a second smaller F E tank that supplies the rads. It appears the one tank in my loft supplies both the taps & the central heating via the cylinder in the airing cupboard. Is this right ...

    VENTED central heating system - water circulating through header tank

    Two years ago, I requested a fully qualified plumber to change the location of the hot water cylinder in a vented central heating system. I wanted to move it from the first floor to the loft, which he did. During the last two years, I have often noticed when I have been up in the loft that the...
