    photo 1.JPG photo 2.JPG photo 1.JPG photo 2.JPG Hello

    Please can anyone help me?

    I have a leak on my vokera compact 24 boiler. When have taken the front off, it is the back of the two pipes that come out of he boiler, on the right had side. It is dripping enough to fill a large mug in about 10 hours.

    Is there anyone that can tell me if it is easy enough to fix, please?

    I know how to drain the system, but not very clued up if it is easy job.

    I have attached pictures of the pipe in question. Its the one on the right.

    Any help would be much appreciated! I don't want to call out an engineer if it is a fairly simple job.

    Many thanks

    Jo

    F/R pipe leaking due to washer or split flange.
    Needs draining new washer or F/R pipe replacing, not a hard job but think a new pipe could run into £50.

    Flow or return pipe, easy fix for a engineer, if pipe is ok, a new washer will cost 30p plus labour.
