    Very useful. Thanks for providing this information.

    Hi,
    Just had a new boiler with unvented cylinder installed…it is all working fine so far.
    I have been scanning the installation documents that came with the Vaillant system and it shows the expansion vessel connected to the safety pressure reducing/pressure relief valve on the cold water inlet.
    However, my installer has connected the expansion vessel to tee’d off connection from the hot water outlet. Apart from the fact that this is contrary to the instructions, is there a problem with this?

  • DubstepDescent says:

    i noticed that there was a pipe connected to the D2 pipe on the unvented cylinder which is wrong….it is supposed to be fitted before the tundish so you can see if either pipe discharges.
    I have seen alot of Unvented cylinders fitted like this and i have had to change the pipework…

  • plumberparts says:

    Hi sorry for delay in reply. I will do one as soon as I’ve got one to film. There is a problem when it comes to the difference between different boilers. Perhaps I’ll do a basic guide. Thanks for the suggertion and regards PP!

  • plumberparts says:

    Hi there, you got me! The expansion vessel has to be installed where it can not be isolated from the hot tank. It doesn’t matter if it’s above, below or to one side. But it cannot have a valve between it and the hot tank. Generally they are on the cold water feed. Regards PP

  • choclatebrownjesus1 says:

    liked the vid very informative you did not mention if it is important where the expansion vessel is sited. not where it is connected into the feed but the actual position does it always have to be above the cylinder

  • plumberparts says:

    No, this (in the video) cylinder is on mains pressure and has no feed tank. However they are easy to isolate (as described earlier). When putting in a new valve, try using a lever valve. Go back to our site and go to screwfix and check for lever valves there. Good luck! PP

  • 24870611 says:

    Thanks for the feedback mate , would I be correct in saying this system is fed from the cold water storage tank above it and a pump at the side? Normally it’s direct from the main ? Also the isolation valve has a black plastic threaded screw on the bottom and black lever on the top I’ve checked on your site and can’t find this item to buy , can any isolation valve be used ?

  • 24870611 says:

    Is it easy to drain down so I can change a faulty service valve on hw pipe ?

  • rosscronin1 says:

    great video as always.
    any chance we can see more on fault finding within combi’s? There’s no where near enough of those on youtube, and your delivery skills make it far more interesting and easy to understand……. Cheers!

  • stickeyontheendtype says:

    what are the defects mate?

  • plumberparts says:

    Hi there! This one uses a heat exchanger from the boiler. Hope that helps. Regards PP

  • DolceVita says:

    Hello Mr Plumber parts!!
    In this indirect cylinder – is it run on gas or electric? Does it use a heat exchanger?

  • plumberparts says:

    Not worth it then! God knows what third is…season ticket?!

  • TheDickPuller says:

    1st prize is a ticket to watch Engerland trying to play football, 2nd prize is two tickets!!…………………….LOL!!!

  • TheDickPuller says:

    Oh my gawd!!.  Not another course cowboy!!!

  • plumberparts says:

    Ahh Mr Puller! I had not heard from you in a day or two. This cylinder was in a house I have just moved into. As I’m sure you’re aware I only post these vids for those who want a better idea of what system they want and not a full guide on install.

    What’s the prize and I’ll tell you!?

  • TheDickPuller says:

    Another well informed video mate. Perhaps it would be worth mentioning that not just any DaftyDIY’er can work on an unvented cylinder. You need to be a fully qualified Plumber with a G3 ticket. Can any of the viewers spot all the defects in the unvented cylinder installation featured in PP’s video?? There’s a major prize for anyone that can spot them all!!!
    Thanks mate for taking the time and keep em coming.

  • plumberparts says:

    Thanks! I hope they help. I remember the years on day release! It was brilliant. If you need any help don’t hesitate to ask!

  • TheWyman27 says:

    Great Vid keep um coming, I’m going college in septemer to do plumbing and find Ur videos interesting
