Boilermate II Descale... Empty Boilermate II Descale...

Post  martins321 Mon Oct 21, 2013 7:58 am

Anyone know of someone who does Boilermate descaling in the Braintree/Great Dunmow - Essex area?

Gledhill Response are quoting £390, which doesn't seem entirely unreasonable assuming their guys actually carry the right kit for this particular piece of work...

Symptoms are very low hot water flow, although temp is high, thermostatic valve was replaced recently, all other parts of system are fine.

Boilermate II Descale... Empty Utterly Useless...

Turns out Gledhill Response engineers CAN'T descale the Boilermate II, needless to say I only discover this when the engineer turns up and looks rather surprised when I open the airing cupboard...I think he was expecting to see a BM2000 which has the external heat exchanger.

The engineer was quite professional about the whole fiasco, however I'm now left with obtaining a refund...I'll report on this in due course.

My BM2 needs descaling at least once a year to maintain good hot water flow, and I'm thinking of investing in learning how to do it myself.
Do I really need the Descaling Tee, as direct connection to BM unit itself would seem to be a viable option too.
I was thinking of making a basic reservoir from a bucket, old heating pump, and flexible hose between pump/reservoir/heat exchanger.
Is that crazy talk ?
