Whats come out of my boiler? and whats wrong with it

Postby Trippy » Thu Sep 18, 2008 9:46 am


I have a Glo-Worm combi boiler, on the weekend it started to trip out my electric, so I couldn't have it switched on, at the same time as anything else. Gloworm technican arrived yesterday, and the opinion was that the condensing overflow collector was blocked and had leaked water on electircal conneections. Great

Anyway, this morning I got up and there was water? all over my kitchen worktop and floor!. Is this just water or is there some nasty chemical mixed up in it?. If so I might need a have to clean my kitchen from top to bottom tonight! It was a right mess.

Also any ideas on what has happened now. Gloworm say they can't come out for another two days, I want to know what i'm talking about when they do arrrive. I'm not to happy to their response to this problem.

Simply Build It

It'll just be water, check for blockages in condensate pipework. Check for leaks around nuts and expansion vessel.

If under warranty - leave alone.
