Discuss Re routing pipe work from existing solid fuel back boiler to new one in new location in the Central Heating Forum area at

    My system currently works off an old Parkray with back boiler in one room. I would like to install a new stove with back boiler in an adjacent room (re opening a blocked fireplace in the process)
    I would also like to integrate a gas boiler at some stage in the future.
    How feasible is this or am I best to wait to do it all in one hit?

    could be done with a buffer tank or a H2 but its quite a specialist area

    This is a very specialist area, mucking about with back boilers alone is something even myself has a good think about. Water expands 242x it’s own volume when going to steam if you design or/and install your hybrid system wrong BIG BANG. I suppose you could do it then stoke it all up and then sit outside in the car for a few hours and see if it explodes. Then there is the home insurance issue. CHking

    These systems can be fairly simple in design they just need to be safely designed and installed. I'd take the advise of a good local hetas qualified plumber.m
