problem occurred when we run the taps opened them too much and the water temp dropped from 60 deg to 45 deg , the taps are very old.

no isolation valves good point did think we may-be pulling cold through just concerned on size of boiler fitted in kitchen /bathroom upstairs that's where the flow is at worst

easy way to tell turn boiler cold water off eg on inlet valve then open a hot tap you shouldn't get anything coming out after 10 seconds

also to confirm too much flow which i dont think the issue is turn the boiler iso down to half open
