Following on from my question posed this morning and after spending most of the day in the loft "looking" at the expansion tank, I notice that water is not entering the tank by way of the vent, but is coming back through the outlet pipe at the bottom of the tank.
Can you please tell me what is causing this and how can I stop it. I am losing approx 5 gals a day through the over-flow.

Your description and terminology are confusing me a bit.
Does your water heater look like this?
