Problem refitting Alpha CB28 diverter valve

Hi, I have been trying to fit a replacement diverter valve this afternoon. Deep joy.

i can get it in place, all the threaded unions seat up nicely, but the pipe with o ring that pushes down into a vertical receiver pipe is weeping? Tried packing it with grease, but no joy and don't want to use Fernox LS-X

Any suggestions welcome.

And just to cap it off, the cold water feed for the hot water isolation valve won't fully shut off so it is dripping....

Welcome to the forum

This plumbing forum will not provide advice to anybody with regards to boiler repairs or any other form of gas plumbing without you first providing us with your Gas Safe Registration number in a thread - for very obvious reasons. If you're not qualified to touch gas, you should stay well clear of trying to!

This is a post by someone unqualified to work on boilers.

Oh well hope you carried out all the legal requirements of Gas safety installation and use regulations. After all you just posted on a public forum that you have performed WORK on a gas appliance and your not qualified to check. I wouldn't be too surprised if capita - the company running gas safe tracked your IP and sent you a fine, after all they are allowed to, thinks it's about £25,000 or 4 years in prison.

Thanks for that most informative reply.

Given that the last time I had a diverter valve fitted by my Gas Safe engineer, he said to me that I was perfectly entitled to do the job next time as I wasn't working on the gas side..... So that's what I've done.

The rest of this quote has been deleted because I can.

cheers
pleb.
