I think I've mentioned this before: I keep finding the central heating header tank on Jubilee dry. This is after spells of a few weeks' absence from the boat. It has taken about five pints of water/antifreeze to top it up each time, so it's leaking out somewhere.
I have not noticed any water in the cabin bilge, so it's a mystery as to where all the water is going.
Another TB suggestion is to pressurise the system to about 10 psi*, and then any leak should be more obvious. As far as I remember, though, the central heating pipe runs are hidden below the floor. Without pulling up the floor - oak strips - how am I to find a leak down there?
All being well, we should be on board in a week's time or so, so I'll make a determined effort to sort this out. This will be helped by the fact that Ally and Ben have started to remove some of their possessions.
*according to TB: Pressurising can be done with specialist equipment, or by screwing a lorry-type tyre valve into the cap of the header tank and using a bicycle pump.
