It also would have regular (what I call mini-explosions - it's not that dramatic, but I can't think of a better word...

    Low water pressure. Non-standard boiler.

    Hey folks, I’m moving into a 2 storey house built in 1970s, and water pressure upstairs is really bad. The current system: cold water supplied from mains, good pressure. Cold water is stored in a tank in the attic. Downstairs there’s a boiler, however it’s the first time I see one like that...

I thought when I fitted the filter supplied with the tank that it was a poor design of...

    Having problems with Remeha Combi-Boiler

    For a couple of months now the CH side of the boiler has been leaking water. It would leak for a couple of days and stop. Very intermittent, but very annoying when we get water dripping everywhere (so the system would depressure quite significantly). I have isolated the behaviour to a valve on...

    Will a combi boiler be adequate for my house?

    We recently moved into a new home that currently has a Super Hot MG-100 Hydronic Boiler (installed in 1986, when the house was built). Clearly, the boiler is way past its life expectancy and in need of replacement. We had a couple of boiler companies come give us a quote and one of them...
