So-o-o....

The plumber has been, the boiler has been serviced (it fought back) and the plumber went to adjust the ball-valve on the header tank, which was constantly running. Now I know why my floors were so damp. I have a corroded heating pipe in the living room (we think), under the concrete floor, and what I thought was air in the system is the sound of the water coming out echoing back through the radiator.

Great.

So while I am away in a couple of weeks time, the plumber is going to come and dig up my floor to find the leak and its extent, and replace the pipe. It could be anywhere between the far dining room wall and the first radiator in the living room. My new carpet has to come up, and the damp proof membrane has to be disturbed. At least Peter has some left we can paint on again after. So, from getting my house on the market in 4 weeks, it looks like it's yet another delay - and further expense I wasn't wanting!
I will be glad to get rid of this place now.
