Are all plumbers porn stars?
 
With the recent poor weather I have just recently turned off my boiler, closed the valves and enabled the water valve for the solar heating on my roof.
Over the past few days and despite sunny afternoons my hot water is lukewarm at best.The panels are three years old and all the connections seem to be in order but alas no hot water.
Would anyone have an idea what the problem is and possible solutions as I don not have the knowledge or equipment to be either a plumber or wannabe porn star!

Thanks in advance.

Last year I had corrosion inside my hot water roof storage tank, this meant the mains cold water was getting into the stored hot water and forcing it out via the overflow, just a dribble but it was enough to ensure the hot water never actually got there, 2 other possibilities are dirty panels or if fitted a faulty mixer valve, this introduces some cold into the outgoing pipe work to ensure it doesn't deliver scalding water. My system has the evacuated tubes and is covered by a 5 year guarantee, it was 4 years old when the hot water tank gave up, a new tank was provided and installed by solartek on gokcabel road with no quibbles

Thanks for that.
Forgot to mention I also had a booster element inserted into the tank for very cloudy days so by flicking the switch I can bring the heat levels in the tank up.
Have done so the past few days so I suspect I may have an airlock in the panels but have no idea how to test my theory.

Hi we have a similar system that's now 10years old. Several times we have had to replace the float as over the winter months when not in use, it sticks. My husband goes up on the roof & moves the float that sometimes works failing that we have had to replace it. We also had a booster installed just in case. Hope this helps. We have a plumber in Turgutreis, Barri, he charges 20tl if we call him to fix the float.

Thank you heathere but I am not sure what a float is ? Also appreciate the heads up on your plummer but it may be a bit far for him to travel.
If I cannot fix it I will call one of the local but expensive porn kings.

If you can wait till next week while my wife is away, I can come over and cast my eye over it. you will have to put up with my girls being there as well. It would be good to shoot a movie in a new location.

Whoaaaaaa, I fear an erosion, explosion, corrosion coming here. KK & Sleepy let loose with Beer, Duck Fat. :fear:

Sleepy, you know what a float is, you musy have been fishing as a boy, it's the wee thing that stays upright no matter what the depth is.

We used to play with them when we went tadpoling too.
