What's a cylinder overflow

    I've always been interested...

    In my block of flats, in the basement there a some pipes which are dripping water most of the time and they are labelled "Cylinder overflow - Flat number X". What are these for?


    Think of the cistern with the the pipe leading out of your toilet if the valve gets stuck your toilet cistern would keep filling and flood your toilet. This will be the same system for all the flats individually
