the same tuner who tuned it the second time and did they comment about the
tuning pins - when you have the piano tuned the first time the pins may have
been OK but with the CH on the piano may have dried out making the tuning
This can be common with older pains I tend to recommend putting water in
the bottom or use radiator pans a full climate control system is the best but they tend to be more expensive that the lower end pianos I would have a word with the tuner see what they have to say
Fixing the problem if the pianos are lose
Restring will be expensive and costs more that the piano in most cases Pin tite can be used but at the moment the UK supply houses don't have any, in
stock. I do use CA glue for loos pins some times but the piano need to be in a well ventilated area that is a cheaper option

I'd say get it back into a regular tuning rhythm and ask your tuner for his opinion.

If a piano hasn't been tuned for some time, it may take several fine tunings to settle it again. It is important then to keep the piano tuned regularly.
