Following radiator replacement/removal during the summer of 2006 when the central heating was turned back on the water was heated only intermittently. Aside from the 'top' radiator needing bleeding quite often the radiators heated properly. When I recalled the person who had done the work he released the ball cock (?) in the expansion tank (it had no water in it) and everything is now fine.
I was surprised to receive a bill from him for doing this and said that he should have done this when he finished the radiator work. He claims that the radiators would not have heated at all with no water in the expansion tank and that it was something unrelated to the work he had done. Is he right?
sorry to rub salt into the wound but i agree with marrtin
the tank/ballvalve must have been working for the rads to work
but this brings up an intresting point and i would appreciate other peoples views
how long should a persons work be guaranteed for?
ill post it on the forumn as well
