    There seems to be a drop in pressure in my hot tap. Had a look at storage tank seems fine full never had a problem. Could there be something in the pipe between cylinder and tap is this possible.:confused:

    if you have a mixer tap hold your hand over the end of the spout and turn on the hot tap. then turn on the cold tap and force water back up the hot tap. release it switch off cold tap and let the hot run. it should get rid of the air.
    if you don't have a mixer place a short section of hose between hot and cold taps and slowly turn on the water to both.turn off cold and as above let the hot run.
