    Noisy Pipes

    We have an issue where every three days whenever we draw water from either flushing a loo or turning on a tap we get a loud 'trombone' like noise. To stop this from happening we turn off mains water and open all cold water taps to drain the system and turn mains back on. This repeats every...

    Noisy boiler cabinet

    Client is complaining about intermittent low frequency noise which she has captured on mobile but I can't recreate easily. It seems as if when the fan runs at a certain speed it induces a low level vibration in the cabinet. It's annoying when it happens but the client is cool about it, I said...

    Noisy boiler (Rubbish Ferroli HE18)

    I have probably one of the worst boilers you could have (not my fault, blame the home developer!) It's a Ferroli Optimax HE18s. We are getting a really loud vibrating noise when the hot water comes on. But if I switch the boiler off then on again and stops straight away and carries on like...

    This boiler has had this fault for over two years. Many engineers have been but never when at fault. Many parts have been changed.

    Heating Pump not horizontally installed by BG and noisy

    My heating pump was installed by BG with the motor shaft at a 45 degree angle. Could that account for why it is so noisy? From what I have read, pumps should always be installed with the motor shaft horizontal so that the bearings wear evenly. Should I ask BG to sort it out on the next boiler...

I don't think anything to do with Potterton boiler as the noise happens when the boiler isn't on - for either water or heating. The noise seems to be from the cold...
