Hi,

A valve on the CH return started leaking while I was repressurising the boiler. This may have been why it needed repressurising but I hadn't realised.
Is it possible to easily replace the valve or should I get a plumber to do it?
It leaks whatever position its in so I've drained the system.
Any help much appreciated.

Hi sorry I wasn't clear and the photos aren't that helpful.
Its the thing to the right of the drain cock that is leaking. I figured out how to put an arrow on the photo now. It can be turned through 90 degrees, I thought it was an open/close valve.Thanks.

First pic shows a drop of water from the drain cock ? Latest pic shows no water ,but if it is the isolation valve it needs replacing ,and it's generic to the boiler.( In other words a boiler part)

As @terryplumb says the isolation valve is part of the boiler, and wait till you see the price of them
 
Thank you all for the help. It sounds like I need a new drain/isolation valve then.
I'll be more careful in future, it wasn't an axe it was a pair of pliers. It was all I had to hand and there was quite a lot of water comming out. Not that turning it made a difference.
Thanks again.
