    "Yes you can add An Inhibitor to your central heating system. Firstly make sure there is none already in the system. Ideally it is best to get a professional to do this for you, as a safety measure incase other problems occur, loss of pressure, ect."

    "If you have an open vented system you could pour the recommended dosage into the feed tank. Dosage would depend on size of the system, ie number of rooms/ Radiators.
    If you have a sealed system I would recommend getting a qualified heating engineer."
