Morning guys. Day in the life of a plumber / gas engineer. Today we’re doing a boiler swap, so we’re taking out an old Ideal logic and we’re going to fit a Baxi Platinum boiler. The reason the customer’s gone for the Baxi Platinum is it’s got a 10 year parts and labour warranty, and it proven, proven reliable boiler over the last 10, 12 years. We’re also going to fit a Nest on this, we’re going to do a MagnaCleanse and we’re going to fit a Fernox filter. So yeah, let’s go inside, let’s go and have a look.
INSTALLING A NEW COMBI BOILER – Step By Step – Magnacleanse – Omega Filter – Baxi Boiler. So I’ve got an Ideal logic 30 in here. So the customer’s been having a few issues with it and wants it replacing for something a bit more reliable, but also wants something with a long warranty. So we’re going to fit them a Baxi, a Baxi boiler in here, with 10 year parts and labour warranty.
So we’ve got all our dust sheets down, and then we’re going to take the boiler out now. So I’m just going to put a test on gas, turn the water off and drain it down. So this has got an old style Spirotech on there, so we will be taking that out and we’ll fit them a Fernox Omega filter.
So just show you, we’re using Press Fit today. So this Press Fit in here, this is gas. So if you have a look at it, it says gas. Now as these get a bit older, and even sometimes now, that wears off a bit and it’s a bit hard to see, which if you go to it on an inspection after might be a bit difficult. But when you’re installing, if you have a look inside, the gas ones have a yellow O ring inside them, and the water ones have a black O ring.
So we’ve got our press gun here and then if we get this pipe and then on there, push this pipe in, and we can mark it, make sure it’s gone on. So what you’re supposed to do is supposed to marker that with a pen round there, and then we’ve just got our press gun. And it’s as easy as that. And if you have a look at that, it just crimps it onto fitting and it squashes that, squashes the O ring on.
So we’ve got the new boiler on the wall now. We did a mains flush before we started. We’re now going to connect our MagnaCleanse onto this, and we’re going to do a flush, we’re going to put some F3 chemicals in, and then after we’ve finished we’ll put some inhibitor in as well. So this system did have a Spirotech on, so I’ve just put this Fernox Omega on just for a few seconds, and already it’s got muck in there. So Fernox F3.
So while we’re finishing off now, the system can just flush. We can just spend loads and loads of time making sure the system’s clean because the MagnaCleanse there is doing this work while we have a chance to do other things. So I can finish flue off, screw the flue, I can brick up outside, just while this is doing this. So it just makes it so much easier. And that adaptor from Fernox is absolutely brilliant.
So we’ve been flushing it for a while now with thee MagnaCleanse. If you look at the pipes you can see they look very clear. So we’re going to take this off now. So let’s open these up and see what we’ve caught, if anything. So there you go. Let’s have a look at this one. Wow. Yeah. Just goes to show how good these MagnaCleanses are, very, very good. So we’ve just got this Fernox F1 inhibitor here, and just going to inject it in, into the filter there.
So we’re just doing the finishing touches now. So we’re just going to test it with care, analyse it, make sure the boiler is all safe. Test us high and test us low. And we’re going to fill this benchmark out, and then we’re going to send the warranty off for the customer, so the customer’s got piece of mind that it’s all taken care of for them.
Hope this video was of some use. Thanks for watching.
Rogue traders Ideal Vogue DIY install. Today we’ve been called out to a badly installed Vogue, Ideal Vogue boiler. So I’m just doing my day in the life of a plumber / gas engineer. So I’ll just show you what we have to do on a daily basis, and issues that we see, and what we have to do.
So, this boiler, if it had been installed by a Gas Safe registered engineer, it would come with a 10-year parts and labour warranty. But, the instal is not very good and there’s no bench mark filled in, so I’m assuming that its not been done by somebody who is gas-safe. And I’ll show you a few of the issues that we’ve got with it.
So the flue is not installed correctly and this, the gas pipe work is not sleeved through the wall, and the bench mark hasn’t been filled in either.
So, let me look at the pipe work under here. None of this is clipped or supported. Let me look at the flow return. The flow return goes straight onto the, don’t know if you can see that very well there, and then it goes onto small pipe, it goes onto 15 mm pipe. So that 15 mm pipe then feeds all the house. Now bearing in mind this is a four bedroom detached house in Horsforth, in Leeds. That’s not going to work very well.
There’s also a few other issues. The system is very mucky, so we’re going to flush this out. We’re going to flush it out today. We’re going to put a filter on here, and we’re also going to fit a nest on there today and then what we’re going to do then is we’re going to advise the customer to have this re-piped, but at some point in the future the customer is going to have the boiler moved because this is up in the loft and they don’t want it to be up here.
So we’re just going to cut this pipe work out now. We’re going to put a filter in. We’ve got this new pipe slice, we’re going to give this a try, and see what fits with.
You seen there, also this is new pipe work and it’s really mucky. So we’re just going to put some Fernox F5 into this now. So we’ve connected the Magnacleanse on to this now and what we’re going to do, the first thing we’re going to do is vent this, so this has got lovely function on this boiler. Scroll it to vent. Click on there. And this will just try and get some of the air out of it because we don’t want to fight the boiler the air and heat exchange.
So we’ve also into this and we’ve connected this on so this will now be Boiler Plus compatible. So we’ve altered the pipe work a little bit here just so that this gets the air to here and then it will go of out the outer air vents rather than going back to the boiler. So what will happen if, obviously that way around and it will get air in as well. The boiler is really noisy so we’ll flush this system now with putting a mega filter on there. And we’ll also fade the nest on this and we’ll wide that up as so it’s boiler plus compatible. So the customer is going to get an extension on this house downstairs so when they do that they’re going to move this boiler and then I’ve always re-piped because obviously all the house comes off 15 mm which isn’t great really.
It just needs re-piping really. Which is a shame because obviously the Ideal Vogue is one of the best boilers on the market, and it would have had a ten year parts and labour warranty.
So, there we have it, it’s Ideal Vogue. We flushed the system out, we’ve altered the pipe work a little bit for now until the boiler is moved. Just to get the air, so the air is not getting into the boiler. Thanks for watching. http://cchleeds.co.uk/services/boiler-installation Gas boiler installation in Leeds. New gas boiler Leeds

If you could just comment below and tell me what you think of this boiler installation and also the filter. And if you think that this filter would be doing a good job for this heating system.
I don’t actually know what the fault is on this boiler, but if have a look at how its installed. Look at our filter. Filter’s not on the right way around. So it never, never going to work. If we have a look at all scotch marks and staff before we start. So, we know that’s got not to do with what we’re doing. So we’re going to remove this boiler. We’ve got vertical flow, and then we’re going put a new Viessmann 100 boiler in here.
So, customer’s just informed me that the boiler had been leaking. And I think the leaker it took the board out as well because when I’ve tried to put the power onto the boiler, it won’t work. I was going to try and see if I could heat the system up and then flush the system before we put a new boiler in. But unfortunately that’s not going to happen on this. But, let’s go downstairs. We’re going to have a look. See what Danny’s doing. Oh.
So, just got Danny in here putting a test on gas before we start. Is it all right Danny? We started yet?
Not yet, just need to turn it off.
So, Danny’s just the apprentice but I’m teaching him or I’m trying to get him experienced in doing everything correctly. So, a full four minute test, doing his let by. Doing our stabilisation and then doing the two minute tests. So, you’ve got four minute test. Also, we’re doing it with the Ken analyzer and printing out as well so that we’ve got proof that it’s all sound. Yeah. Let’s go and have a look.
Just got Danny now taking front cover off. We’ve checked all is safe electrically. We’ve isolated the electrics. We’ve turned the cold water mains off. We’ve tested the gas and now we’re going to remove the boiler.
Still smiling jazz. This is a combi swap. A lot of people would do this just in one day and then they’d just flush it out. We’re doing this over two days and we’re doing a full power flush spending a lot of time flushing this system. So, yeah, I let a bit of the power flushing into this video as well. We’re also going to instal a nest on this as well. Yeah, let’s go and have a look. We’re installing the Viessmann Vitodenz 100, 35 kilowatt on this job.
He’s struggling, going to delay?
Just a bit. It’s a bit tight.
Just getting the nuts out on the bottom of the boiler now and then we’re going to lift the boiler off. We’ve took burner out in front just to make it a bit lighter for lifting out. We’ve also taken the flow out as well.
Got the bolier off the wall. We’re just taking the J off now and then we’re going to put the new boiler on.
Danny lifting boiler on now. Little heavy that Danny?
A little bit.
Just piping this up now, putting some Ts in here. It’s a little bad to see. Should put torch on. I’m just putting some Ts in there and I’m going to do a power flush on this system on this job. And what I’ll do is I’ll isolate the boiler so that we’re not putting any muck and sludge through the new boiler. But I can connect the power flush machine onto these connections. Somebody’s had some fun. If I blow I’m setting everyone on fire in here. We’re just going to press that so none of this mess will be anything to do with us.
just on a main’s flush on this before we power the boiler up to get as much muck out as we can. Normally, we try and do this with the old boiler in place, but the old boiler wasn’t working. So, what I’m doing now is I’m putting some heat into the system and then I’ve got some speed fitting here and some valves and I’ve made some temporary connections and then I’m going to do a power flush on this. So, we’ve got some chemicals I’m going to put in. I’ve managed to put a filter there, which is a bit tight but at least it’s in and you can get to it. And then we’ll just need to sort this wiring out as well. We’ve going to instal a nest thermostat on this.
So I’ve got the power flush machine in here, which is the nonstrom pro flush. And it’s got built in magnets on this one. I’ll just check them before I start, just clear them off. They got a bit of muck on from last job. And then I’m going to put some X800 in this. Supposing it’s got a new formula. Best ever performance. Cleans system in one hour.
Just a little tip with the X800 or any chemical cleaner really. Just make sure that you get all that cleaner out afterwards because it can cause issues with O rings and bits or just stuff in boilers and in system. So, just make sure that you take a lot time afterwards to flush that out.
