Vented cylinder causes of no hot water

No hot water is the last thing you want.

The first thing you should do is check all of the taps around your home. If hot water is running from some taps but not others, then there's a problem with the that tap rather than the mains hot water supply.

An overflow pipe is essentially there to stop your house from flooding. Storage header tank, for example, have an overflow an inch or so down from the top of tank to stop water from flowing over the edge.

If the overflow pipe keeps running, then this can cause leaks and flooding. And the most likely culprit is the float valve.

The role of the float valve is to prevent the storage tanks in the loft from filling up with too much water. So if the float valve breaks, the tank won't stop filling with water and the overflow pipe will keep running.

A float valve is a small ball on the end of a long piece of plastic or metal. Something could be blocking the arm from moving up and down or the ball may have cracked and filled with water – weighing it down.

Have you noticed your pipes getting noisier? Then that's a strong sign that something is wrong. And it could be one of a few things: high water pressure, clogged pipes or loose fittings.

High water pressure can cause a lot of damage to the pipes around your home. And this can lead to leaks. It can also wear out taps, meaning that you'll have to replace them much sooner.

The first thing you'll want to do if you suspect high water pressure is contact your supplier. Following that, a Pace plumber can fit a pressure regulator valve. This will monitor the water pressure in your home and make sure that it doesn't get too high.

Another factor to consider before calling a Pace engineer is to check your timer. This may have been affected by the clocks changing, power supply, back-up batteries failing or even somebody altering the settings without you knowing.

It should be easy to see at the timer control panel if the boiler is currently active for hot water. If you are not sure, check your timer manual.

Un-vented cylinder causes of no hot water

If you open the hot tap and tepid or even cold water comes out, it could be related to a very wide range of problems. For instance, there could be a problem with the electrical supply to the hot water heater, such as a blown fuse or something similar.
