No hot water

Postby Campo Steve » Tue Sep 29, 2015 1:19 pm

Our hot water is supplied from an imersion heater . The cold water suply ushes the hotwater out into the house but just now, when we turn the ot taps on, nothing comes out, the cold water pressure, town supply is fine. Strangely the hot water pipe from the tank is hot to touch. Any suggestions?

Check the little removable mesh filters in the taps.

I bet you were in hot water when you told your wife that the water supply had been turned off. :twisted:

Hoi! Campo Steve! I couldn't understand why my TV wasn't working, then I remembered to switch it on. I was unsure how to do this until I saw this link. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/04/ ... 06x423.jpg
