Hi, new to the site, im looking for some advise with regards to the cold feed needed for a washing machine, basically I recently had a friend/retied ex plumber move my washing machine to a new location in the house he has plumbed into an upstairs cold feed that leads to the loft tank the machine seems to be working fine but I have been told it should really be mains fed? We are due to get a new machine soon and it is a cold feed only so im a little worried this could be a problem, the tank is about 16ft above the machine.
You said "......he has plumbed into an upstairs cold feed that leads to the loft tank". Well, in that case it would be on the mains high pressure side and perfectly ok or do you mean he has used the flow FROM the header tank, in which case it wouldn't?
