6 months old just run in,The flow of water speeds up and slows down on idle.The video sort of shows that i think.

I saw this once on a Suzi 15hp. I think it was due to the thermostat opening and closing changing the rate of flow. I can't watch the video though as its blocked by the internet Nazis at work!
