Hi Iain,

No there is no adjustment available. The usual complaint is that the water is too HOT!

Low tap water temp indicates the following, in order of likelihood:

1) Scale contamination of the heat exchanger
2) CH boiler control not set to MAX temperature
3) DHW sensor failure

The progressive nature of the problem strongly indicates 1). Either fit new one (best) or get it descaled.

Hope that helps.

Cheers, Mike

remember that your incoming mains supply will be considerably colder this time of year so it needs to be held back in the plate heat exchanger just a few seconds longer to gain those extra couple of degrees, the pump will compensate for this
try just slowing down you hot tap or shower to see if it makes a difference.
