    Hi all

    I have a newly fitted heat only boiler that is leaking at the point where the condense pipe enters the rubber fitting under the boiler. The siphon is not blocked and runs freely.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry my phone died

    I did the install and the gas pipe is no where near the the condense pipe and it is an ideal heat 15 boiler.

    It was only installed yesterday. My initial thought is a partial blockage in the condense pipe. Is that possible? Maybe water is backing up as the leek only happens when the heating kicks in on the initial fire up then stops. I had the thing running for over an hour yesterday with no problems whilst commissioning.
