My partners daughter has just been told that she needs a new system as the pressurised tank upstairs is corroded and in danger of failing british gas have quoted her £1300 to replace the system as they say the potterton suprema boilermate ll is obsolite is this correct or can it be fixed economically

Hi Simon

It would seem there is some confusion here. Your post says that the Porreton Suprima boilermate 2 is obsolete, whereas Potterton make central heating boilers, and Gledhill make thermal stores(e.g. Boilermate 2). The boilermate 2 IS NOT a pressurised unit, it is an open vented store with a coil runing through it that is connected to the cold water mains (this is where you get your hot water from).

To my knowledge, although neither the Potterton Suprima are currently manufactured, spares for bothe items are currently available and therefore they are not obsolete.

If the Boilermate 2 is leaking from the internal structure, then yes, it does require replacing, however, please make sure that British Gas have given you best advice. The boilermate 2 is constructed from copper and is not prone to corrosion. The grey casing is made of a lightweight steel and may corrode, but it is often simply covered in scale from leaking joints on the top of the tank, but these usually only require new washers.

The probability of both the Potterton AND the Boilermate requiring replacement is exceptionally rare. I would advise you seek an inspection by a Gledhill specialist in your area.

Kind regards
