Water flow noise in hot water cylinder

Postby nallursiva » Sat May 19, 2007 7:47 am

I recently got my whole central heating system changed (replaced the old boiler to a Potterton Suprima, and repositioned the boiler and changed all the radiators as part of building an extension). Now I faced with 3 issues and could some one advice?

1. Getting water flow noise (gurgling sound) whenever the central heating system is switched on

2. Upstairs radiators from time to time (more or less weekly) reqires bleeding to get rid of the air

3. Whenever the hotwater is swiched on the radiators are getting hot too

4. Hot water is getting very hot in the taps

Sorry for the long list as I have already spent over £3000 and worried that whether the whole thing a mess!

I have a seperate tank in the loft.
Following the avice my Plumber changed the 3 way valve, but still the radiators heat up while hotwater swiched on. What could be the problem? He too is puzzled by this!
