    Default Any plumbers here?

    Hi all

    need some advice and maybe a plumber for the doncaster area.

    Girlfriends house has got a Ideal boiler fitted which should heat water and run the central heating. However had a guy in to fit the new bath room and shower. Since then the boiler is making gurgling sounds when igniting, no HOT water only warm and the central heating doesnt work at all.

    So basically looking for a good plumber in the doncaster area to have a look and fix for a good price without robbing me.

    look forward to any advice or contacts

    First check the pressure on the boiler, there will be a pressure gauge somewhere on the front of the boiler, this should be somewhere between 1 and 1 and a half bar. If its below 1 bar that is most likely your problem.

    To rectify top up the system using the filling loop, this will more than likely be a chrome braded hose somewhere below the boiler connecting the cold water pipe 15mm to a larger 22mm pipe being the central heating return.

    On the cold water pipe side there should be some kind of isolation valve which can be opened up using either a slotted screwdriver or by an attached lever similar to what you would see on a washing machine.

    Once opened you will see the pressure raise on the pressure gauge. Switch back of when 1 and a half bar is reached.

    Now bleed all your radiators, downstairs first then upstairs. If air is present the pressure will again drop while the air is being replaced by water, dont panic just top the boiler back up as above.

    End result should be all radiators full of water and pressure gauge showing between 1 and 1 and a half bar.

    Switch on the boiler, expect some initial rumbling and funny noises possibly with slight pressure drop again, this will just be air in the boiler exiting through an internal automatic air vent.

    Should quieten up within a minute or two and hopefully all will be well.

    Did the plumber fit a new bathroom radiator, if so it will be his work and the reason why the pressure has dropped.

    Hope this helps.

    Arkhan's original quote states 'ideal boiler which runs both hot water and central heating'. This suggests it is a combination boiler making the above info totally relevent mate. If its not a combi system then the original statement is wrong.
