    Scale reducers or Magna clean type filters?
    Don't take it personally, I'm always like this.

    I`m not sure all boilers are ok with water softeners. Might be worth checking with the manufacturer? Is there a risk of the salt-softened water causing corrosion?

    Mash, if I was you I would ask this new plumber to explain to you the requirements of Part L1 of the Building Regulations and how this should be met, regarding the requirements for time (as well as temperature control) on both the domestic hot water as well as the heating.

    Another case of "diy'er saving money" only to find out it has cost them more.

    Thanks Chris, will do. Advice appreciated. It's just a shame the original guy didn't think about all that when he installed it (on the cheap I suspect).

    As for me doing a DIY to save money, I've actually spent nearly £1k on the boiler over the last year through getting a very well known and reputable plumber in to do the work. Unfortunately he was neither a Grant fan, or very knowledgeable, hence me doing some work on it in the interim just to keep it going whilst I found someone who knew Grants. As soon as he can get here, I hope to get it properly sorted, and legally as well.

    More a case of DIY'er trying to keep the system going in desperation
