Hi, I posted this yesterday but in the wrong section. I need a mechanical timeswitch for my Vaillant ecotec pro28. It was installed on 2011 and the current switch is a 130 type. Will a 150 one fit and if so where's the best place to get one locally. Thanks.

We just had our boiler replaced and went for a Worcester Bosch compact combi. So far so good

Happy to view your property, discuss the install and provide a written quote. I can easily quote for boilers with 3/5/7/10yr warranties and advise you appropriately, cheers, Steve

Hi all, I have a WB JUNIOR24i approx 10 years old. Losing pressure in system but when heating is on pressure rising to over 3bar. I don't believe there is a leak on c.h. ( but possible ). Would welcome any suggestions.
Cheers Billy

Thanks Johnathon. Just stuck my finger in the pipe and it is wet, if it is the expansion vessel is it a major job?

Regards Billy

It's a horizontal flue, 400mm clearance above boiler. Also it's the 28i not the 24i sorry for mistake.

Thanks Billy

My Alpha HE25 combination boiler keeps losing pressure. I keep topping up using the filling loop but I have to do it practically every time the heating's been on for a while (it's controlled by a Salus it500 internet thermostat).

I doubt that I've got a leak in any of the rads, as there's been no water. Occasionally been getting water coming out of the pipe on the exterior wall by the boiler too.

Would someone be able to come and fix what's wrong?

I'm on Cobden View Road, Crookes S10 1HT.

Hi,
Wonder if anybody can help me. We have a gas fired boiler heating system. During the last week two of our radiators were only getting lukewarm when before they were red hot. Now all the radiators are just getting lukewarm. I have bled all the radiators so there is no air in any of them. The water is getting hot it's just the radiators.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

As stated in the title, this thread is for queries. Obviously this can include asking for recommendations but if you have an actual job vacancy or want a quote please post it in the Job Vacancies section.

Thank you

Most likely expansion vessel (needs re-charging or replacing) but could also be blocked pipe to expansion or a dodgy pressure release valve. Simple to diagnose, cheers, Steve

Guessing it is NOT a combi ? Check pump, motorised valves, room-stat and boiler itself......many possibilities for this problem, needs a proper diagnostic visit, cheers, Steve
