Blimey 10 years for a ballon! mine was at a guess 10+years old when I found it in the cellar and installed it as a "temporary measure" some 15 years ago.

Agree with Dibbyspot-if you get 10 years out of a ballon you are doing well especially if it is a no name brico job.

If it continues looks like the tank. Apparently, according to our plumber tank/balon life can be less than 10yrs. If you cannot get it out via the hatch then maybe that too needs a review. Sorry to present bad news.

It's not that old. We have the tank installed in 2007. We wouldn't be able to get a new tank in the loft as loft hatch too small.

It's only the hot water that is affected; the cold fill is fine

Excess Iron in the water ?

Are you on Source or a Forage water supply.

How old is your hot water tank?  Could be getting to the end of it's life.
