Our Solo 2 has been kettling for ages and we decided to get a new boiler.
I wanted to get a similar one so it would be easier to swap over.
We've presently got a vented system.
Mistakenly we bought a Baxi Solo 3 50 PFL System boiler thinking it should be a straight swap.

1. Is there a way we can convert over to a sealed system so we can use the new one?

2. It has an internal pump, do we still have to have the pump by the water cylinder too ?

3. Shall I just cut my losses and get another boiler suitable for the vented system ?
