      Hi Mate, so sorry to bug you on a Sunday. I was just reading a posting of yours which may be relevant to my own problem at home. I am a gas engineer myself and I recently installed one of the new Salamander Home-Boost pumps under my 30CDi combi (this pump boosts the mains and can either be installed on the incoming main or under the boiler to just boost the hot water. Your post (u9 is a blocking stage where the boiler is protecting itself. It means the primary temp has reached 109 degrees and so the boiler switches the burner off until such time the temp measured within the boiler drops.

      Is there air in the system? No
      whats the pressure...is it at 1-1.5 bar? 1.5
      Is the pump running? Yes

      My problem is that when I shower everything is perfect but when running the bath (same thermostatic bath/shower valve the hot water is good for about 3 minutes then goes to the U9 overheat code. The hot water then runs cold and the boiler diverts the hit water to the CH flow. The only difference between the bath and shower is that the bath runs freely and the shower head my slightly reduce the flow. Does this sound like a heat exchanger issue even though the hot water is perfect and always was until about 2 weeks after I installed the pump to my mains? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Thanks,
      Jethro
