Hi, to install the showe the plumber would only have to change and pipework. It seems the plumber may have close a wrong valve. There are so many ad plumbers out there. I recommend getting own ti chexk everything now nip it in the before the plumber leaves donr mean to worry you but thats ii recommend .it could be a motorised valve issue

Either a blockage within hot water tank coil or in the pipe back to the boiker. Check air is released from raand any manu air release valves on pipework in the cylibder cupboard

no he didn't drain heating - i had that brought back up the weekend before though. Newly moved in to house you see.but heating and everything was working before the local workhow could i check about a block in the hot water coil - that sounds likely - as it would explain immersion heating working, water flowing and hot water getting to the tank.
