Technical Director Richard Wallace changes a diverter valve on a Potterton Combination boiler.
Richard begins by isolating the boiler with two valves, the flow and the return valve and drains the boiler down from the drain off pipe.[0.33] on opening the valve the boiler drains down into a bucket.
Upon opening up the boiler Richard locates the part, unscrews and removes the diverter valve and fits in the new replacement part. At times the diverter valve can be quite tricky to remove and replace - it is recommended a professional boiler engineer carries out these kind of repairs.
After fitting the diverter valve Richard then shows us how to top up the system pressure...
"by checking the gauge and placing an indicator on the filling loop until the pressure is up to 1-1.5 bar. We'll then turn the boiler on and test it to check for leaks."
With the job complete the boiler is no longer letting by and the diverter valve has been replaced.
If you have any issues with your boiler PGS, whatever the make/model, call PGS today.
