Hi all

Anyone had experience with a gloworm ep50b, firing up ok, running for about five minutes flow pipe starts vibrating/groaning, boiler cuts out for about 30 seconds then relights for a further 30 approx, repeat. Tried Fernox silencer, no change, wondering if it is pipework scaled up as it is in a hardwater area. Any assistance appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like scale to me!
It's quite an old boiler might be best to exchange it.

It's due replacing in the spring time as the house its in is being reconfigured. So the boiler would be moving regardless. Any ideas of a quick fix to make it last?? Is there a product on the market that would actively remove the scale from the exchanger if it was taken out to clean from the boiler?
