When you say small water tank do you mean the f and e tank? The smaller of the two in the roof?? And is the water coming out of the overflow pipe outside?

Hi
Have you checked it is not just something simple like bending the float arm down just a touch to lower the water level? Just wondered.
Best wishes

I would suggest the above too, the valve might just need adjusting - hence letting the water level get as high as the overflow.

You need to get up there and see where this extra water is coming from.... more info needed.
