Subs Plumbing and Heating August Diary

Week 1 in August

Installing a Glow Worm Ultimate 30c

Subs plumbingStelrad softline radiator installation

 

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
