    Becoming gas safe

    I would stick with level 3 you will cover your basic ACS elements among other quals like unvented, water regs part L and such. At time I did my basic ACS I was offered extra units a discounted price. Level 3 should take no more 9 - 12 months to do. Well worth it.

    no hot water

    This could be air in the flow and return from the cylinder?? More likely the return, this may have happened when system was drained to replace 3port valve.

    Leaking Toilet :(

    Just buy a closed couple cistern kit this comes with doughnut, new plate and retaining screws with washers ect. When replacing it dry everything off and seal bottom of syphon to cistern and cistern to coupling plate. It's all very straight forward.
