Hi My biasi boiler only has really hot water when I turn

This answer was rated:

My biasi boiler only has really hot water when I turn mains water pressure down but then the water pressure from taps etc is very low
Can you advise please


If your boiler is unable to heat up the hot water as fast as you can run it and your heating is ok, then I suggest you get your plate heat exchanger cleaned

Customer: Thanks andrew
Customer: may it need replacing?
Customer: would a heat engineer need to do this?

You can strip it out and put it in a bucket of strong descaler but it is a tough job

Customer: I'm a carpenter by trade Andrew and can generally work things out but am a little concerned to touch the boiler.
Customer: is it something I can do myself?

It is complicated, probably better to get someone in, they will also guarantee it for leaks too

Customer: Thank you for your advise.
Customer: much appreciated.
