Spanners for removal of heater element

Post  adamst on Tue Mar 27, 2018 7:18 am

Hi, sorry couldn't find a PulsaCoil BP2 120 thread/section.

I have one of these which has v slow leaks from drain cock and lower heater element. (edited to say - leak appears to be from the fitting and not inside the plastic cover hence the approach being taken)

I have a new drain cock to fit but wanted to see if the leak on the heater element was fixable by removing and re-fitting with PTFE tape or liquid before having to shell out for a new one.

Question - what type of spanner do I use to remove this - the nut part looks huge

Thanks for any help, need to get one of these today if poss

Thanks Mike, in the end I got a flat one with a cranked handle, worked fine if careful to keep in place. Thanks for this great resource
