Low pressure hot water in bungalow

Postby hatter1988 » Mon Jul 09, 2007 8:16 am

Please could someone give me some advise. I have just bought a bungalow and had central heating system fitted with new hot water tank. However the pressure from the hot water taps is very low. What is the easiest way to increase the pressure?
Do i need to fit a pump?

Hi there I am a young plumber and it sounds like an air lock in the system in the hot water and this is a common problem but easy to fix
