    Boiler mfrs wireless roomstat?

    Just wondering if anyone would use a manufacturers wireless roomstat over a third party model. I had a main eco elite combi installed yesterday and I'm thinking now of a wireless roomstat as the daft bugger heating engineer forgot to put the 24hr mech timer in. I didn't complain and make him...

    Best long term cleaner/inhibitor

    I'm just after a little advice on inhibitors. Are there any better than others. I've looked at the sentinel x100 and x200. I know a new system shouldn't be noisy but if it has all of the benefits of x100 plus more without any negatives then it might be something I consider. The like of...

    Combi boiler replacement

    Thanks for the replies. I didn't realise that my neighbour wouldn't be registered unless working for BG, I thought it was the person that was registered. Bloody hell, that means they could send anyone to your door

    Main Eco elite heat excahnger

    Morning all, I'd like to know if the plate heat exchanger on the main Eco elite 25 combi is stainless steel or not. I'm in the market for a budget boiler for my 2up 2down mid terrace and after reading on the forum about things to look out for I can't find this out from the info provided for...

    Can a 3 way valve be stuck in neutral?

    Hi Ian, I do appreciate the help and since your advice that it was the pump over run I haven't posed any more suggestions or questions about other parts. All I have done is give feedback on how it's going. The quote above is a response to how long the pump runs once the burner goes out. The...

    Can a 3 way valve be stuck in neutral?

    No a direct replacement for the original grundfos. He has been around again today and went over everything he has done so far. Before he started he thought the pump may still be the issue but that it could be a bad electrical connection. He disconnected everything to the pcb board, checked...

    Just to confirm, the boiler fired up and when the burner switched off in ch mode the pump ran on for 2.5 mins

    Will an 8 Ltr expansion vessel do (with video)

    Just to confirm, the boiler fired up this morning and when the burner cut out in ch mode the pump ran for 2.5 mins Given this I'd think the pump only cuts out with the burner following the pressure and noise problem so I'm back to square one

    Can a 3 way valve be stuck in neutral?

    Just to let you know the boiler has stayed on when i turned the boiler on this morning and the ch is heating up. i'll check for the pump over run once the system is up to temp. I believe / hope the pump only kicks out at the same time as the burner when there is a problem and the boiler cuts...

    Will an 8 Ltr expansion vessel do (with video)

    I know what your talking about with the over run on the pump (running after the burner has cut off), but would the over run cause the pressure to rise as the burners are running and then the boiler to cut out in the first place, or be a cause of the resulting noise after the cutout. I might...

    Will an 8 Ltr expansion vessel do (with video)

    Thanks Ian What could cause the pump to cut out at the same time? If the pcb, it only had a new pcb at xmas due to the boiler not firing the 2/3 burner

    He is a friend of the family and a neighbour, which doesn't always help as I'd feel guilty using someone else

    Can a 3 way valve be stuck in neutral?

    Sorry if this is long winded. I have other posts about a problem with my britony combi 80 and since I'm Still waiting for my heating engineer to turn return I though I'd fault find. I won't replace any parts myself but if I can tell him what to look at it might give him a kick up the butt...
