    Evening boys,
    Could someone familiar with the D plan spare me 5 mins to look over a couple of pics to see if I've done it right. For obvious reasons I'd like to check it's right before it's switched on.
    Cheers lads
    Alex

    I figured it wasn't for public viewing Dan, so didn't put pics up.
    Would it be better to PM you a couple?

    Put pics up. There is nothing secret about Intergas boilers.

    If Dan says it's ok to sling up the pics I will do.

    It is just a run of the mill boiler, not a secret rocket.

    I have no issues.... Just be careful of what Hard-On might advise.

    Ok, thanks Dan. So basically the pics should show the install as it is right now. The installer is basically a bit stuck with regards to the wiring/setup of the pin 5 jobbie.
    So, questions as we see it.....
    Does the 3 port valve need wiring direct to the boiler or should it be wired to the wiring centre and a flex then from there to the boiler?
    Does the 2 port valve need anything different to normal wiring wise?
    This will be run from an evohome set up, does that need to be installed before this set up will work?

    Thanks Dan/anyone else that can help out.

    It's simply because there is a slight difference in how the boiler is wired up to make use of its potential.
    Also installing the evohome set up is something he's never done, so had rather be sure than get it wrong, which I can appreciate.
    There's 2 flexi s for the EVs, the hot water from the tank is 22mm copper. Photo makes it look like it though! :)

    Wiring is done from pin 5 through cylinder stats.

    What valve is it? Done properly you don't use the 2 port.


    Lose the Flexi hoses too. Hard pipe the vessels.

    Ahhh I said this to him, that every pic I had seen with this sort of setup only had a 3 port valve and not the extra 2 port. He said however that the 2 port is a safety device that's needed. So does it meet regs ok if it's not there?
    So when you say "wired through the cylinder stats".... forgive me, but what or rather how do I do that?
    So as I see it I've got the intergas stat which is a wire with a bit of coat hanger on the end :LOL: and the evohome hot water kit that had a small copper temp probe on the end of a black flex. We had presumed both of these could be put together into the stat hole on the tank that the normal white square plastic tank stat would be, and we guessed this tank stat was now redundant. Is that not the case?

    Now we've just got to work out how to get the evohome working alongside it. He is on a course/product training day with Intergas today so was hoping to perhaps pick someone's brain. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks again Dan for all the help. I know it may seem basic to you guys but to some of us it's all Greek! It difficult to show real appreciation on a forum, it's just words, but I really can't thank you and everyone that's helped me choose such a system enough. The heating and elecs are the spine of the house, so it's so good knowing we have this sorted. (y)

    Oops forgot to reply about the vessels...... we have used 500mm flexis to the vessel so that when the vessel dies, it'll be a real easy job replacing it even if the vessel has a different mounting point or diameter etc etc. Is this not a good idea?

    The Flexis can, make the water smell. Also they're liable to split.

    The 3 way, valve is plumbed the opposite way, to normal so spring closes.

    It's wired through the cylinder stats to provide overheat cut off.


    Intergas cylinder sensor goes to boiler as designed.
