    Hi, I want to change this Boiler (Greenstar) not a Combi. I am hoping there will be someone on this site who can suggest a replacement where the pipes and flue are the same in the Picture and go in through the top so I know what to shop for. I really do not want pipework alteration around the room/rooms. The make would be irrelevant Thank you.

    If that's a Worcester Ri, then the pipes go down behind the boiler and connect into the jig at the bottom. Other makes do connect at the top. Let your installer make the judgement.

    I would let the installer make the judgment as said above.

    There is plenty of space above the boiler, to cross over flow and return and include a filter.

    Hi Thanks for your suggestion but guess who has found a leak in Cupboard where Cylinder is! Looks like I will probably have it stripped out and a Combi installed . Nevermind

    A combi will need more pipes and probably a larger gas run, still easily enough done though

    @Chris_W was answering the post saying there was enough room to install a filter, he was pointing out that you already have one, no need for another
