the pump is on speed 2 the system is a valiant boiler which is not a combi boiler it feeds a cylinder i have tried to turn off the other rads but still no heat to the other 4 rads i have been told that its possible the pump is not strong enough it is a 15 60 grunfoss the pipe work is 22 mm but reduces to 15mm to the rads and sorry but the rads i have is 22 not 12 would it solve the problem by having a larger pump installed

put pump on speed III

for 22 radiators you'll need more than one 15-60 pump.
