Anyone had orange water???

Post  Lucylooooo on Fri Dec 26, 2014 4:08 pm

Hi, my boiler has been faulting and the red light comes on and I've been using the reset button and it works fine. This has been happening more frequently and today it looked fine but when I run a bath the water was only warm then turned to an orange colour! I freeked out and turned the whole system off. Can anyone give any advice? Thanks

It would seem that the PHE plate heat exchanger may have a fault.
And the dirty heated water is mixing with the clean.
Is the water rising in the top tank?

Do you get orange water from all the hot taps?
What about the cold taps?

Try running the hot taps with the supply "on" to the unit (so the DHW pump will work)
Run and see if it clears.

It was only orange from the hot, I just turned the unit on and run the hot tap and it running clear now. The LED is flashing as it should but the green light has not worked in a while now. Would you be able to take a look when your free? I live in Aldershot thanks

Don't worry about the lights.
If running clear now see how it goes.
I am not in your area
Norwich Norfolk is my location.
Look on here list of advertisers on Home page.
Or Google up Gledhill repairs, Pulsacoil 2000 repairs, Gledhill repairer, etc for your areas.
Mario may cover your area.

Thanks Mike will leave on over night and see how it goes! A little scared about having it looked at as the women two floors up had hers repaired once and flooded the flat below!
