Hi all,
i have a customer that as had an issue with a blocked Blending Valve, its happened twice over the last three years. the Blending Valve feeds all of the house and is the first thing coming off the mains, there are tiny bits of debris that is to be expected but the blockage is caused by what looks like to bee a white fabric type material that pulls apart like cotton wool. I have spoke to the water board but not getting much of an answer. Has anyone else come across anything like this?
