1. The appliance is suitable for use with open vent
fully pumped systems and sealed systems .
The following conditions should be observed
on all systems:
• The static head must not exceed 30m (100ft)
of water.
• The boiler must not be used with a direct
cylinder.
• Drain cocks should be fitted to all system low
points.
• All gas and water pipes and electrical wiring
must be installed in a way which would not
restrict the servicing of the boiler.
• Position isolating valves as close to circulating
pump as possible.
• It is recommended that the return pipe is fitted
with an automatic air vent as close to the boiler
as is practical.
NOTE: Full TRV Systems (refer to section 6.4)
Where all the radiators are controlled by TRV’s
then pump protection will be required. This can be
done by either of the options opposite (see Fig A &
B). The option shown in Fig. A should only be
used on a full TRV system without a bypass.
Fig. B shows a system with a bypass that must
be capable of allowing a flow of at least 3 l/min.

Treatment of Water Circulating
Systems
• All recirculatory water systems will be subject to
corrosion unless an appropriate water treatment
is applied. This means that the efficiency of
the system will deteriorate as corrosion sludge
accumulates within the system, risking damage
to pump and valves, boiler noise and circulation
problems.
• When upgrading existing systems that exhibit
evidence of sludging, it is advisable to clean the
system prior to treatment in order to remove any
sludge and reduce the likelihood of these
deposits damaging new components.
• When fitting new systems flux will be evident
within the system, which can lead to damage of
system components.
• All systems must be thoroughly drained and
flushed out. The recommended flushing and
cleansing agents are Betz-Dearborn Sentinel
X300 or X400 and Fernox Superfloc Universal
Cleanser which should be used following the
flushing agent manufacturer’s instructions.
• System additives - corrosion inhibitors and
flushing agents/descalers should be suitable for
aluminium and comply to BS7593 requirements.
The only system additives recommended are
Betz-Dearborn Sentinel X100 and Fernox-Copal
which should be used following the inhibitor
manufacturer’s instructions.
Failure to flush and add inhibitor to the
system will invalidate the appliance warranty.
• It is important to check the inhibitor
concentration after installation, system
modification and at every service in accordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions. (Test kits
are available from inhibitor stockists.)
• For information or advice regarding any of the
above contact the Potterton Helpline.

13.0 Changing Components
13.1
Changing Components
IMPORTANT: When changing components
ensure that both the gas and electrical
supplies to the boiler are isolated before any
work is started.
When the boiler on/off switch is switched off
the control PCB remains live. Therefore it is
important to isolate the electrical supply.
Hazardous materials are not used in the
construction of Potterton products, however
reasonable care during service is
recommended.
When replacing the combustion box door after
changing components, it is essential that the
retaining screws are tightened fully.
1. Before changing any components please read
Section 1.2 Important Information.
Fig. 45
2. Remove the outer case (see “Fitting the
Outercase” Section 11.0).

3. Isolate the water circuit and drain the system
as necessary. A drain point is located on the heat
exchanger manifold at the right hand side of the
boiler (Fig. 45) to enable the heat exchanger to be
drained.

4. Place a tube on the drain point to drain water
away from electrics. Turn anticlockwise to open
(Fig. 45).
NOTE: When reassembling always fit new ‘O’
rings, ensuring their correct location on the
spigot. Green “O” rings are used for gas joints
and Black “O” rings for water joints. Use Greasil
4000 (Approved Silicone Grease).
5. After changing a component re-commission the
boiler where appropriate and check the inhibitor
concentration (see Section 6.2 and 10.1).
