Two leaks, both on existing ball valves! This longstanding one I managed to fix by backing the nut off and tightening again. Another I caused shifting pipes. Just tightened that one. Both probably just ptfe'd originally.
On the 3 replacement valves no leaks so far.
I only put ptfe on the 3-port along with Jet Blue Plus that with the old nuts and olives.
On the two 22mm 2-ports just Jet Blue Plus, no ptfe but the nuts and olives that came with the valve. For some reason the Honeywell nuts didn't seem to want to go on easily with tape.
Power off to the boiler deliberately.
I boosted upstairs and downstairs heating and the hot water. OMG the gurgling! Seems to have quuitened down now. Pump running. Still hearing the odd "surge", guess air still.
Haven't yet bled any rads. Presume so that before I fire the boiler up?
How will I know when the boiler is "full" i.e no air?
Cheers. Appreciated btw.
I was using LPG Direct info obtained when you first mentioned them to me 6 months ago.
In a call today it was confirmed underground tank installation is £250 in a pre prepared hole. Annual tank rental is £70. £0.375 per liter fixed for 6 months of the 2 year contract.
Defo the cheapest off mains gas new build setup cost but I have no idea how many years it takes before hi tech options pay back their setup cost premium.
When the cellulose was put into my house recently, Gordon, the guy who did the job, commented about the lack of fluffer-upper machines in the UK and Europe. His was imported from the US.
Perhaps the other thing is the need to seal the walls. Having seen how easily the cellulose escapes from the smallest of gaps when blown under pressure, I imagine it could be difficult to install in interior walls, especially once services are embedded into them.
All 3 valves are on manual if that's what you mean? As in I've gently pushed them over and latched them. Pipes are gurgling and bubbling. Header tank still filling - ball valve crappy but can only feel it over the top not see it.
