    Thanks guys, appreciate the input.
    Definitely a decent company, the guy that came round that will see the job through is one of the top guys with all the degrees and what not.
    I will be back with photos once it's done see how they did.

    What if any cleaning steps should be done. In emails he said that a water flush through will be carried out. Seeing as its brand new everything and plastic piping is that all that's required.

    If you can flush all the rads before fitting, be surprised how much rubbish they can have in them

    So might be worth me connecting the flow to the mains and running it through each rad in turn?

    If you have an open vent system I wouldn't connect the flow to the mains.:p:p:p:p

    New system, think he means flow then each rad

    And have the rad outside to flush

    No im taking the old system out and going to a combi. We currently have an ancient Poterton boiler, a hot water cylinder and two water cisterns in the loft.

    I mean once i have piped up the rads, run the return to a grid, and connect the flow to the mains. Turn the tap on and go around the house opening each radiator in turn.

    I have been pressure testing as i go and so far its held pressure each time overnight. Probably do a final one with the system full with as much water as i can before pumping it up.
