XXXXX XXXXX :

It sounds like your hot water flow switch has stretched, taking more force to fire the boiler

XXXXX XXXXX :

Does this happen if you run the bath tap?

Customer:

It does seem to take quite a bit longer for hot water to come through if I run any tap with the CH off demand, would it help if I changed the hot water flow switch and increased the water supply pressure via the stop tap

XXXXX XXXXX :

It does take longer becuase uour boiler has to start up and then get to temperature - usually taking 6 seconds or so before you get hot water to the tap. whereas when the heating is on then the boiler is lit and hot already

XXXXX XXXXX :

If it keep going hot and cold whilst ruinning the tap then get the flow switch changed
