    Air Source Pump/Hot Water Cylinder 8th Jan 18 at 10:42 AM
    Hello everybody

    I bought a new build hour just over 6 years ago and the heating system was powered through an air source pump, along with a huge water cylinder in the upstairs cupboard. It has all been working fine until this weekend. After a couple of showers and baths, I've noticed a small leak coming from one of the pipes attached to the water cylinder?

    I live in Lancashire, and have emailed several heating/plumbing companies, only 1 has said they will take a look but at a 75 callout charge, 50 per hour on top and then parts charges on top of that??

    Is it a leak from a pipe (maybe condensation?) or from a joint?
    Is that pipe hot from heatpump, cooler return to heatpump, cold feed to tank or hot water pipe out of tank?

    If the leak is from a pipe on the water cylinder it must be water not coolant, so any plumber should be capable of fixing the leak.

    You can temporarily fix the leak yourself with one of these:
