Are you overfilling it? If there are no leaks then possibly it is just
dumping any excess and will stay at that level from there on, provided you
don't go filling it up again.
IIRC, the Td5 doesn't need much in the overflow tank - just enough to cover
the inlet pipe to prevent it syphoning air back in when it cools down.
Always check the level when it's cold.
Try *not* topping it up next time and just keep an eye on the level.
OTOH, if it's *really* boiling, then you do have a problem.
