everyone is mentioning using water from the hot tap, i was always under the impression that this was not suitable for drinking/fish? or has all this changed now with combi boilers?

Personally i just use cold water, even on 50% changes. the fish seem to love it, always swimming in and around it
its changed since combi's mate

Fish swim, that's what they do.

If you mean they're more active that could be because they're trying to raise their body temperature.

I use the pump head of my interpet pf 1 as that has sufficient head pressure to pump 1 metre upwards and still retain a decent flow rate.
