Steve I haven't had it done as the sniff test didn't show a failure and a pressure test lost a tiny amount after about 30 minutes. So far I've replaced the header tank and cap as a precaution and the water level has stayed level since I posted so hopefully it was one of them but I couldn't see any where they had failed. I will monitor it through the next few months as it will get more use again as the salt disappears and it warms up.

:D Well I've done the (careful)sniff test and all seems to be well, the drop in coolant turned out to be a slight leak at the offside front :roll:
It's weird because it wasn't even clattery when it started :?

Glad to hear it's ok and that paranoia is alive and well.
