    I doubt it is kettling.

    More likely it has been fitted to a dirty system and the crud in the bottom of the HE is making it sound like this.

    This can be a problem with any boiler with a gianoni HE.

    HE needs flushing out, preferably reverse flushed.

    Yes it is, depending where your filling loop has been fitted.

    The hard part is thinking of a concise way to put it into words on here :confused:

    It's situated directly below the boiler with a flexi hose and a valve either side of it.
