    Evening all i have a technical question i hope you can help me with.
    I've been asked to quote to fit a Vaillant 630 system boiler on an S plan with 3 seperate zones, 2 x CH and 1 x HW

    The system comprises of 14 rads and a 42 x 18 indirect cylinder
    8 rads on ground floor (1st zone)
    6 rads on first floor (2nd zone)
    Total rads output = 24kw
    The 630 has a built in bypass but should i still fit an external one?.
    I'm concerned about an additional bypass causing circulation / cycling problems if the built in one opens as'well as an external one.
    Thanks

    The one in the Boiler is not big enough in my opinion.
    Not for an S plan anyway.

    Thanks, i must admit that not fitting one on an S plan doesn't seem right but the MI's state that an external one isn't required

    I know but I think it's best practice.

    You wouldn’t get told off for it but for the sake of £30.00 and no call backs.

    Can any one tell me why you need an external bypass with an S plan with a 630?

    I just deleted that message Chris. I was writing something different.
    Do me a favour and get rid of it so I can rewrite it will you.

    Sorry Chris, I'm not ignoring your question. I got distracted and then Question Time started.
    I'm busy today but I will come back to you soon.
