    Please excuse my lack of boiler knowledge, We have a serious problem with our boiler its leaking from 2 pipes, when the boiler is off it leaks at a slow but steady stream of water, when the boiler is switched on it leaks alot faster as such you can see the drips, The first pipe thats leaking is the pipe on the far left coming out of the side of boiler, the second pipe is the main pipe coming out of the right hand side of boiler, We top the prussure up once in a while and not long ago had our pressure release valve changed is it anything to do with that?

    we badly need help as we cant use our boiler the water is dripping on the main wires and we dont want to short out the electrics, thanks,

    If your prv had to be changed, you have almost surely system corrosion. This could well contribute to the leaks you have. Best to get the boiler checked completely as this will go from bad to worse.
    Wild guess says your boiler has not had it's annual service every year since it was installed.
