We have a califont attached to our little cabin. The water is from the farm supply and has been variable pressure over time. Today we have great pressure but no hot water at all. When we turn the taps to the hot position the water stops running. All taps are mixer taps.

Any smart ideas?

My resident expert is out on his bike, will pass it by him on his return and get back to you.

First question...... is the pilot light alight? Also what brand / make / model?
Does it have a filter? Could this need cleaning? See ya later.................

Expect a call soonish, have sent text for them to ring you.

There are no bad questions only those that are not asked.

Thanks :D It's a Millen - phoned them but the guy there wasn't a lot of help... The gas side of seems fine, but the water is the issue. We think there must be a water inlet filter but if there is it's not easy to get at! It was working perfectly earlier this morning now all of a sudden we have nothing!

Ho hum, the joys of camping [}:)][}:)]

Can't help laughing and wondering how the plastic bag got into the intake. Having visions of you tearing into Xmas pressies on top of your hill and the wind whipping away the plastic carry bags! Some greater power than ours decided that you were being far too urban with your plastic bags and needed to teach you a lesson in sustainability! :D

LOL! No Christmas pressies this year so not us......unless of course it was one of the many, many plastic bags full of bits and pieces for the bbq [:I] But how on earth it got into an alkathene pipe is beyond me :D
