    combi boiler reduced flow after mag one internal replaced

    its a grant, not sure what model. Today I emptied the balls out of the combimate and cleaned behind the red plastic inner which was thick with whatever the balls are made of. Thought that might have solved it but the flow is only slightly better at the showers but still not enough to run hot...

    Thanks very much for your knowledge, the mag one must be a red herring. Any ideas what might cause my problem please?

    combi boiler reduced flow after mag one internal replaced

    I have a grant combi boiler with a combimate and Mag One fitted it the system. Recently the Mag One started leaking. Heating engineer replaced whatever is inside and cured the leak. Since then, the shower is feeble and there isn't enough hot water to overcome the cold water pressure in the basin...

    Thanks DP. I'll give a trusted sparky a ring now I have your wiring diagram. Probably have to wait til after Crimble now but at least I can fire the boiler up by running off hot water. Just have to keep cleaning things!

    boiler cuts out via cylinder stat

    Thanks for the answers. I had already had the valve electrical bit replaced by another Grant approved engineer because the rads came on when HW selected. We just lived with it for a year. Then the boiler started cutting out and the next Grant bloke said it was air. Consequently Ive spent 6...

    boiler cuts out via cylinder stat

    I have a vented system with a bog standard Grant external boiler. Basic Drayton timer and room stat. Radiators all come on even if only HW is selected. The boiler cuts out when hot water reaches temp. I've proved this by turning the stat up and boiler fires up. The Grant approved engineer...

    combimate or magnetic conditioner, which is best

    I have a Combimate fitted about 450mm above a Grant combo boiler in a very warm room (29ish degrees C). A different heating engineer to the one who fitted it 6 years ago, says I should replace it with a magnetic water conditioner as the Combimate can do more harm than good to the boiler. what...

    Much appreciate the replies. Thanks Freddie, you have basically answered my question in one. Unfortunately, it isn't deep enough to use as a basement so that's out. Thanks again for all the advice

    permanently flooring over indoor swimming pool advice please?

    Many thanks for the replies. Its on a slope at the top of a 5metre hill so I hope the water table wouldn't rise. Random Grinch, thanks for posting the Chanel 4 programme. That looks like a good solution. Would the jabfloor need oversize on top or just screed? Thanks

    Grant oil boiler only works on test switch

    OK. Thanks for the info. It seems to be working on demand now but did not come on last night in -3 degrees so I guess the frost stat is not working either?

    Grant oil boiler only works on test switch

    Thanks for the answers. I'm not sure it has activated now. The button is out and won't even try to reset, just springs straight back out even with the boiler stone cold. But it fired up on demand last night then went off after 30 mins. its has fired up this morning from the indoor control.

    Grant oil boiler only works on test switch

    I've just had a better look for anything obvious. The 2 little copper wires from the overheat reset button are loose where they go into what I guess is the thermostat. I literally touched them and the boiler is going now but the button will no reset. Any ideas on that please? Thanks
