What should I do? It was dripping through the ceiling. I have water leaking form my water tank/s in the roof. We know we have a faulty ball valve which our son was fixing but he had to go out and is away for the night. I have turned off the main stop cock and have opened all the taps to drain off all water. Now do I close the taps? For the night? We have had no trouble for years and now my husband are both over 80 years. I can get help in the morning but I need advice now please. thank you.

I have recently got a dishwasher from a friend and tried

Hi guys,I have recently got a dishwasher from a friend and tried connecting it up myself. It is beside the washing machine and when the waste hose from the washing machine was going down the upstand pipe it drained. I tried the dishwasher waste hose going down the upstand pipe and again it drained with no problems. Since the upstand pipe can only hold one of the waste hoses I attached the dishwasher hose to the spigot under the kitchen sink (also disconnected and ran water through the spigot to make sure it wasn't blocked off at one end) but now it won't drain (I also tried the washing machine under the sink and it wouldn't drain either). Any advice or ideas?

I have an open vented gravity feed hot water system. Cold

I have an open vented gravity feed hot water system. Cold water storage tank in loft with indirect hot water cylinder in downstairs airing cupboard. I have a shower in the on-suite served by gravity hot and cold feeds into a shower pump. My question, could I add a single empeller pump to the main hot water out-flow pipe from cylinder without removing the shower pump? Or is it one or the other?

Just hoping for a little help. The overflow pipe of my

Hi there, Just hoping for a little help.The overflow pipe of my pressured hot water tank is dripping since it's been heating the water. I don't know if this is recent or wether it's just today...By dripping. I mean the water is flowing where it should (outside) but I'm unsure if the pipe should ever be used as it's for overflow?Is this normal? Any help greatly appreciated!Thanks,Tom
