i am in the middle of fitting a new bathroom suite and i am at that stage where everything is back in after ripping out and replacing bath,toilet and sink.
the cold water is running ok, but the hot is being stubborn and won't come back on. i have refitted the pipes exactly as they where originally so i don't think there is anything wrong there, so i am thinking the system is airlocked.
all my taps are square and won't accept an hosepipe, so i used the washing machine hot and cold to reverse flush the system, when flushing the water comes out of the hot taps, but once i stop the cold flush, the water in the hot taps just dribbles out under no pressure.
when flushing the water comes out of the 22mm overflow [hot water breather?] into the storage tank in the attic which itself overflows through the outside pipe.
i am pretty new to this, i ain't scared of hard work..but, the theory sometimes terrifies me :? :?
