Question about Water Heaters
9 yr old and runs on propane, only reaches 40 degrees temperature unless on slow trickle on tap. Then can eventually make 60. Flame seems too weak. Have just changed external regulator without any improvement. Have tested temperature mainly at sink near boiler. Effects upstairs in the bathroom even worse. Seems to have got worse over last 2 years. Spanish technician says there is nothing wrong with it!

Check in coming water flow . Check water flow at heater maybe blocked inside reduced flow .

Yes the problems are related. The system is low on water. So now instead of water you have air in radiators which is easily compressed when it heats up. Then pressure loss when it cools down.
Add some water to your system until you have 15lb pressure and bleed out upstairs radiators at the same time.
Please rate this response and Good luck, Phil
