I've just moved into a new flat which, unlike every other place I've ever lived, has a hot water heater tank. The problem is, the hot water is essentially a trickle. I can't see a pressure gauge on the tank, and have no idea what the two controls on the right do (though they do have pressure markings).

Where do I begin to rectify this problem?

Cheers lads.

Don't mess about with pressure yet.

Is the pressure of the hot water a trickle everywhere in the house or just upstairs (if you have an upstairs)?

As a digression, how were you getting hot water elsewhere if not from the boiler? Central heating needs either a gas or ground source heat pump electric system.

It's the first time he's had a tank lad, not a boiler.

Just one floor; everywhere. It takes over five minutes to fill the sink with hot water.

I'm not sure I understand the question. In my previous gaffs, it's been a gas-powered boiler that presents hot water on demand, and the same for the central heating system.

My current flat, however, has an (electrically, I suppose) heated hot water storage tank (as in the photo), and electric heater in each of the rooms. Not that they'll be needed, it's hotter than the surface of the sun in here. Top floor, innit.
