Subs Plumbing and Heating August Diary
First week in August
Installing a Glow Worm Ultimate 30c
We removed a back boiler and installed Glow Worm Ultracom3, 30c combi boiler in the airing cupboard, with 10 years manufacturer warranty. We also replaced all the radiators in the same property with Stelrad soft line radiators and installed Drayton RT212 thermostatic radiator valves which help you save energy by turning off heat in the rooms you do not use. The previous system was open vented and some radiators many of these were slugged up putting unwanted strain on the heating system. Rather than having a machine power flush the landlord decided to replace all radiators. We installed Adey magnaclean professional2 magnetic filter and Fernox lime scale reducer to keep the system running smoothly. We also carried out a magnaclense flushing to get rid off sludge in the pipe work
Worcester Bosch 30i installation
We also replaced a Worcester SI none condensing combi boiler with Worcester Bosch 30i ErP condensing combi boiler with 6 year manufacturer warranty. Installed Worcester Bosch green star magnetic filter and Comfort1 wireless programmable room thermostat. We used Kamco CF90 power flushing machine. This is a 2 bed mid terrace house , so that we set up the heating out put to 15 kW (factory set to 24 kW)to save money on gas bill.
We have carried out few toilet repairs across Leicester. We used Viva Skylo bottom entry fill valves and syphon. These valve comes with 10 year warranty. Very reliable and easy to install. Issued annual landlords gas certificate .
We’ve supplied and fitted Heatrae Sadia Megaflo unvented 210 litre cylinder in Kibworth Harcourt.
Hot water deliver is amazing. In the bath it is over 22 liter per minute and all other hot water taps in the region of 18 – 20 liters per minute.
The power behind high performance, invigorating showers, fast-filling baths and sinks. MegaFlo unvented cylinder.
Our customer was very satisfied with flow rate and high quality workmanship.
Also replaced the boiler with an award winning Worcester Bosch 30CDi classic system boiler.
It’s a large detached house with around 17 radiators. So we put an additional 12 Liter expansion vessel to take care the heating side too. We also installed Worcester Bosch 28 mm magnetic filter and Fernox 22 mm lime scale reducer. To comply with Building regulations installed new thermostatic radiator valves and upgraded programmer to Nest intelligent third generation programmable thermostat. Power flushed central heating system and checked with FLIR thermal imaging camera
We repaired a Worcester Bosch 28i junior boiler , which was not providing hot water. Replaced secondary plate to plate heat heat exchanger and auto air vent and
recharged expansion vessel.
We attended and out of hour emergency plumbing repair call out to repair a burst pipe in out door house. It was an incoming main cold water lead pipe. We renewed lead lock and capped off the supply as requested by the customer. Job was initiated at 2110 and completed by 2230.
We carried out 4 annual Landlords gas safety checks and installed an outside garden tap in Thurmaston. We also carried out a boiler in Blaby. Replaced a pressure sensor. Installed kitchen taps in Oadby and Rushey Mead. We visited a house in Rushey Mead to remove radiators for plastering and painting. We will be going back to put them back on when decoration completed. It was a very busy week for our engineers.
