  1. Hi Alan yes will check that but for now no more leaks or issues however am going to get the correct pipes and setup done early Jan by someone reputable. If you knew how much I was charged for this work it would shock you. Knowing a bit more about what is required now I would never of paid that but lesson learnt ....
  2. Hi having done some more digging into the setup in the picture we now know that the whole system did not have a accumulator tank fitted anywhere even though we had paid for this, the red expansion bottle in the picture is actually acting as an accumulator tank on the cold feed as there was never one put in. We will still need an expansion bottle on the hot side and am going to get quotes for this in the new year to sort it all out. Am really angry with the installer and will be taking it further as they were clueless for a lot of money !
  3. Hi agree that the person who fitted this is clueless and to be honest did not care I have just tightened up the jubilee clips on the pipes and there is no more leaks I have turned the website on and am going to leave it running all day to see if there are any more leaks for now I think it is best I leave it at that and get someone who knows how this should of been fitted to sort it out long term any suggestions of anyone decent near Teddington would be much appreciated. You guys are a godsend thankyou for all your help I owe you all a drink ! SORRY not turned the website on ! Webasto on !!
  4. Have just seen that 2 pipes are leaking the idiot that installed it has used 16mm pipe and I think it is a 13mm fitting so am going to try to tighten them up first !!
  5. Another problem is the position of the calorifier it will have to be unscrewed and put upright to access the prv ....
  6. Hi Alan just thinking does it matter leaving the 3 bar prv on or should I change it back to the 4 bar that I still have as it was not faulty in the first place. Also have confirmed the accumulator is on the non return valve pipe Before I go any further here are some pics of the setup showing where it is plumbed in is this correct ?
  7. Ok understand thanks the first thing I am going to do is change the prv back to the 4 bar with the pump off and pressure released and then I will come back to you thanks

  9. Hi thanks I have read that but was not sure how to set it I also know our pump pressure is 35 psi as stated it on the device which got me confused am going down to it soon after a cuppa cheers
  10. Thanks Alan will have a go tomorrow may also put the original PRV back in as I very much doubt anything was wrong with it in the first place !!
  11. HI have just been down there it is 3 bar am not surprised the guy was useless
  12. Just looked it is 3 bar the old one is 4 bar
  13. Ok this is not good the idiot that changed the PRV changed it from a 4 bar to a 1-3 bar from screwfix I have the original one here and doubt there was ever anything wrong with it Surecal recommend that size for 55 litres I rung them
  14. It states surecal on the original paperwork
  15. The PRV is 1 -3 bar is that what you mean
