Boiler update Feb. 1st, 2003 10:43 am
Both thermostats are apparently fukt - the off-peak one by itself, and the 24-hour one through overheating - and probably the immersion coils too - so the plumber's going to need to replace pretty much the entire water-heating system - which he reckons, if EuroLet are responsive (or more usually if my landlord is) he can get done in one day this week.

In the meantime I can survive on what's currently working by manually switching it and being Bloody Careful ™

As for why the cold water was hot - the boil-over outflow in the cylinder flows into the cold header tank - I assume this is to try and prevent pouting scalding water down the outside of the building.

This is a hassle. I'm just glad I'm not paying for it.

A thermostat that stops working because the temperature is too high? Oh behalf of all Materials scientists everywhere, i am deeply ashamed.
