    Help with Vaillant ecotec plus 937

    Monkeysballs - I have the same boiler as you (a 10 year old Ecotec Plus 937). I've just received a VR33 but notice that the shift load tank is already connected to X31 on the main pcb. How is your VR33 connected to the main pcb?

    dirt seperators - what are your thoughts?

    We've started fitting spirovent dirt seperators at work and I've just installed a Magnaclean for a customer, but are they a waste of time on sealed systems? Which ones do you rate?

    The water supplier won't be in any hurry to replace their stop tap - expect 4 to 6 weeks delay. What about changing the dodgy soldered fitting for a compression fitting?

    Hot cylinder loss of hot water in all taps

    Mains water flow rate

    If you've got 200 litres of hot water that your using at 16 litres per minute then you've got about 12 minutes of shower time I'd have thought. Have you seen There is no mention of supply flow rates in there that I can see though and I like...

    Power shower with combi

    Now that the OP has resolved his problem - didn't want to confuse things any further. simond - what makes you think that the flow rate is immaterial if you pump off the mains? Not saying your wrong, just curious as i can only find a reference to 12 litres limit without permission. Thanks

    Power shower with combi

    The water regulations do not allow a pump connected to the mains to draw more than 12 litres per minute unless permission has been granted in writing from the water supplier. Most shower pumps would draw more than this and the solution would be to supply hot and cold from a cistern - So it...

    How often should i need to re-pressurise a combo boiler?

    It sounds as though you have a small leak somewhere. You may be able to spot it if its a weeping radiator valve or something else thats fairly visible, but it may be under the floor somewhere. If you've just changed from an old "vented" system with a hot water cylinder then its not unheard of to...

    Hi Can you feel both 28mm pipes at the boiler end and again at the cylinder end. The boiler needs to be have been on for 15 minutes or so. CAREFUL - they should be VERY hot! I'm expecting you to say that the cylinder end is noticably cooler. In theory with gravity circulation the...
