Hoping someone here with more knowledge than me on this can help me out a bit here!! Am having problems with the hot water out of our tap being way way too hot. Were talking too hot to even put your hands under here. Anyway, i will describe what i have done so far.
On the boiler is a gauge which goes from 1 to 5 (1 being lowest) and this has always been set to 2 for the last couple of years. I changed this to 1, and checked the water the next day and its still scolding hot, so i put this back up to 2.
on the hot water tank in one of the bedrooms there is a similar dial ranging from 30C all the way up to 80c. This currently sits just under 70c and again, has done since as far as i can remember. I turned this down to 40c, waited a day, then tried the water again. No change,just boiling hot water. The hot water tank nderneath the cover is pretty much too hot to touch.
The timer under the stairs which controls the HW and CH clocks etc is currently off, and has been all summer
So how can i lower the temperature of my water or what is going wrong?
Any advice is very much appreciated!!
