My Halstead Platinum is behaving like the expansion vessel is faulty, the plumber has priced a new one and fitting at about £375, yikes. But he hasn't tested it, and I'm no plumber but have been reading up on this and it obviously needs testing first and the pipe to it may be blocked, so I'm not impressed with him at the moment.
But does anyone know how to access the valve on the expansion vessel - looks like it's probably against the wall at the top and it's all boxed in with the flue at the top, I can't see much in there?! The manual doesn't give any clues either.
Thanks, it's ok, I wasn't planning to start dismantling anything myself
Just worrying that the engineer hasn't tested the EV before saying it's broken and it might just need air putting back in it. He said he didn't know how to replace it and was going to find out, but I want him to find out how to test it, so started looking into it myself. There's what looks like a rubber cap on a valve right on top of the boiler, might that be the EV valve?
