    External destratification pump

    Unfortunately not, just a single horizontal immersion heater half way up.

    Vaillant Ecotec plus 612 system boiler problem

    Just to close this thread off - I replaced the head on the valve and all is now good. Thanks!

    External destratification pump

    Hi Guys, This may be a non starter but it was an idea that popped into my mind so thought I'd ask the knowledegable pople on here! I have a unvented hot water cylinder heated primarily by gas boiler but it also has an electric immersion heater. I also have solar PV panels and plenty of spare...

    Vaillant Ecotec plus 612 system boiler problem

    Thanks for the replies, with your help I've managed to isolate the problem. As you say, looks like I was barking up the wrong tree with the boiler. Have done some reading up on how S plan works and it makes total sense now. The 2 port valve for the heating seems to be the culprit - I did some...

    Vaillant Ecotec plus 612 system boiler problem

    Hi, I have the above boiler, was commissioned by gas safe engineer just over 5 years ago and has been faultless since until now I have a hive system controlling heating (usual radiators) and hot water and a unvented HW cylinder. All wired up on S plan I believe - separate valves for CH & HW...

    Paving slabs laid dot and dab on soil

    Thanks for all the responses! This job was only done a few days ago and wasn't cheap. £700 to be precise. Also had a brain fart and got the size wrong - it's actually 12ft x 10ft. So now it's dried, I can see that the central slabs are a good inch higher than the edge ones so I would imagine...

    Paving slabs laid dot and dab on soil

    Hi, Just wanted to gauge opinion here before taking legal action. I commisisoned a company to prepare a shed base recently, 18ft x 14ft which was done with 2x2 slabs. The area was fairly flat to start with and they did some raking to level it off. Then, with no other preparation, the slabs were...

    Boiler left unsafe and leaking fumes after service?

    Well it's a bit odd - looks like the CO2 alarm does work, but only when it is mounted to the ceiling base plate. Gas man came, checked everything, screwed the cap back on and all ok now. Cheers all.

    Boiler left unsafe and leaking fumes after service?

    Thanks for the replies - since posting the pictures I've seen the cap you're talking about. Can't see it normally as it's above eye height. Service was November last year which means it's been like that for best part of a year. Gas man coming round as an emergency - hopefully the same one who...

    Boiler left unsafe and leaking fumes after service?

    Hi, I'm just at my partner's (rented) house and was looking to install a Hive system but noticed what looks like an uncapped hole in the flue on her combi boiler (I deal Logic ESP1 35). I can feel air movement, including warm air when the boiler is running and taking a photo looks like it's open...

    Thanks for the advice. I'm sure it's all above board - just needed to be 100% sure. Will check the card and go ahead. Ted

    Unvented cylinder installation - plumber's certification

    Hi, I'm due to have an unvented cyclinder fitted shortly but on checking the plumber's gas safe register page it shows only vented not unvented cylinders as certified. Does this mean he's not certified or is there somewhere else that the certification could be held? Nothing else about the...

    Grohe Wireless Shower - Service 30 - pumped 36022

    Thanks for that, unfortunately it's out of warranty although I do have a couple of other broken units with different faults so was wondering what I could swap around inside... The others have different faults so maybe I could cobble a working one together - don't suppose you know what the...

    Grohe Wireless Shower - Service 30 - pumped 36022

    Hi Guys, Pretty much as the title says really! When shower is powered up it goes through the usual 45 seconds or so ritual of making a few noises while 'wait' is displayed on the remote, then it goes to 'service 30' and won't do anything more. I've gone into the service menu and done the 'inlet...
