Running a bath... Empty Running a bath...

Post  AnthonyR Mon Sep 06, 2010 12:47 am

My other half wants to run a bath but every time she does the water starts of nice and hot (from where it's been stored in the coil), but slowly gets luke warm, especially if the tap is turned up quite high.

Is there any advice (short of using kettles) that anyone could give with respect to making the water out of the taps hotter?

Many thanks

How old is the unit?
It prob needs a descale
And a blending valve too.

Hi mike
The bm is old. Probably as old as the house - 19 years.

I'll have a look into descalng it and fit a new blending valve (although the one fitted looks quite new)

Descale after 19 years if not been done before would make a huge difference.
Blending valve may be ok.
Where are you in the uk.

Hi Mike.
Located in Biggin Hill, Kent. Tried a few locals for descaling (including a local Gledhill specialist - south east green energy) and they say they 'don't do repairs'...

Typical.

On the search...
