    hi all, dropped the Grundfos 15-50 bleed valve down the floorboards out of reach. The whole contents of the water tank has emptied. Looked online but can only see options to buy a whole new pump when we only need a replacement valve. Any ideas?? Thanks

    Try a scrap yard or a large plumbers merchant. Merchants always have faulty stock to return and scrappiest will,have a few too.
    Where abouts are you based?

    Its when you mentioned a bleed valve that threw me.
    I will have one and could post you it , but if you remove the screw it shouldnt empty a tank , you may need a new pump anyway

    Thank you so much!
    My mom watched a YouTube video as we were having hearing upstairs but not down. I Don’t think we turn of everything we needed too, but the whole central heating system needs replacing

    Before you fit the replacement bleed screw in the pump spread a towel out under the pump, not to catch water but to catch the screw, in case you drop it.:eek:

    Welcome to the plumbers world!
    You can bet as soon as you drop anything small and important it will roll to the nearest hole even if it has to roll around corners and around things.
