    Fully pumped CH systems? Potterton Profile 80e conventional boiler.

    AFAIK the boiler is set to fully pumped. (The switch inside is on fully pumped), however the pump is only running while the boiler burner is actually lit. My understanding is that a fully pumped system should have the pump running for a while after the burner goes off to circulate the heated...
