Sooey, thanks for your interest in my problem, and for being so thorough.
The boiler is a Glow worm Betacom 30c running 6 rads, and all our hot water.
Hopefully these details will make the difference, and allow you make a diagnosis.
Corgigrouch, thanks for your suggestion. I tend to leave the flow temp dial a couple of notches below max.
Muggles, there hasn't been any changes made to the boilers settings. The condensate drains into a bucket of lime chips that used to be constantly filled to the brim, but is now bone dry. Thought it may have been a problem generic to all condensing boilers, hence the initial lack of details. Thanks for your help.
