Hi all - my gas boiler was losing pressure every week and found the culprit to be a radiator valve leaking below the floor. I have attached a photo. 15mm wavin valve.

does anyone know how to replace this valve? Can’t find on net

thanks
Gary

Valve ?? Looks like a push fit elbow .
If it is ,you can use a compression elbow ,or a push fit elbow.

Osma gold push fit, nasty things, they can't be demounted/re-used.

Any other pushfit/compression should do the job. Just ensure if it's plastic you use the pipes own inserts.

Oh and can I suggest that your system maybe needs a bit of a look, possibly a flush, going by the colour of the liquid in that fitting ;)
