“Can a hot water tank be fed from the boiler to the bottom of the tank?”
I assume this is for hot water systems, if so, fixing a problem boiler or a hot water system must start with identifying the kind of system you have got. Most properties have two separate hot water systems, while both systems share components they do not mix. The central heating system uses water that is heated in the boiler and then circulated around radiators. The domestic water system is the water that comes out of taps in sinks and showers. So to answer the original question, no it can’t and that is in fact illegal to do.
“Condenser boilers and power cuts”
It is possible for a condenser boiler to run in the event of a power cut, however the supplier would advise against it. If it stops working and you are unsure why, then as ever please ring LHPS before attempting to do anything.
“Does a combi boiler give out instant hot water?”
The short answer is yes it does. With a combi boiler hot water is always available instantly and for as long as you need it.
How can I get more hot water pressure from my combi boiler?”
There isn’t a quick answer here, the water is fed from the mains so the water pressure is generally good on combi boiler. It is important to remember that combi boilers take water from the mains and then heat it as required, however on standby there is no water demand, so no heat is wasted.
