    I wonder if anyone can help with this... One radiator circuit is constantly hot even though the room stats are not calling for heat. So the rad circuit is being fed with hot wat er from the manifold if (for example) the hot water cylinder is calling for heat. I suspected a stuck valve so I...

    Ideal Isar weird noise

    Hi guys, my boiler was doing it since I bought the house a year ago but now it is doing it more often and all night. Before it kicks in it is making a scratching noise, hard to describe.

    So I posted this question on this forum a few months ago but it still has not been fixed. There’s been a sound coming from my boiler which is apparently not fixable. I have been told by a plumber that it is due to condensation from the cold weather? sounds like bs, but is it correct? I’m not...

    Weird LLH behaviour.

    Good evening Gentlemen (and ladies?). I have a large holiday let, in rural Somerset, and commercial heating engineers are rare out here. I’m a design engineer by education, so have taken on the task of getting this system running better than it is at the moment. Long story short, the heat...

    Weird request. Looking for old boiler that we can photograph and then throw away.

    OK this might be a weird request. For 2012 we are seriously thinking of reaching out to Gas Installers to show them how veratile our diamond core kit is. For example - Something our drill kit can do (in addition to drilling tiles) is to drill holes into solid granite worktops. Thats very...
