    Trap with no outlet

    Unlikely that the trap outlet is blocked ,but the pipework downstream may be. Use a large plunger to try to unblock. The lugs are not for disassembly ,but are there to create alignment / spacing of the chrome top.

    Which wago would you recommend for inside a light switch, please? Never used them before...

    How many earth conductors need to be joined together ? Wagos are available to connect 2,3 and upto 5 conductors.

    Post leak repair, boiler runs for 15 seconds and cuts out before accelerating

    What make and model is your boiler ? What is the pressure in the sealed heating system When all cold ?

    Post leak repair, boiler runs for 15 seconds and cuts out before accelerating

    With pump not running ,and opening its bleed screw ,does water flow out constantly ? Have a big towel handy and make sure no water gets on electrics. I assume your system is fed from a loft tank ,is it full of water ? Do you have a strong magnet ?

    Have you bled the pump ? Pump gets hot when it spins with no water in it

    Sounds like a lack of circulation. When turning on heating and boiler fires up,is pump spinning ?

    Leak in indirect HW circuit - do I need to drain and solder?

    A right pain then. Sounds like you will need to cut out parts of the ceiling

    Leak in indirect HW circuit - do I need to drain and solder?

    You could ,but I doubt it would make much difference. Where does the pipe run , in relation to water on the ceiling? As you know where water is showing on the ceiling ,is it not possible to expose that area from above ,where water should be visible on top of the ceiling ?

    Not sure ,but building control may require that pipe to be relocated if your building over it.

    Leak in indirect HW circuit - do I need to drain and solder?

    That's a tundish ,and shouldn't have water flowing through it unless there is a problem,with hot water expansion not being accommodated ,or the PRV is passing when it shouldn't. Probably the former. Have you followed the pipe from the lower part of the tundish connection ,to see if it's leaking ?
