It sounds as if the ball valve in the cold water storage tank is set too high. when you have a bath the hot water is used up and the hot water cylinder is refilled with cold water. The cold water storage tank is also filled up. then the hot water cylinder is heated expanding the water inside this goes up the expansion pipe into the cold water tank but if the cold water tank is already full (overfilled) then this just overflows. The easy option is just reset the ball valve so the water level is a few inches lower. This should solve the problem.
