Introduction
i
This boiler must be installed and serviced by a
competent person approved at the time by
the Health and Safety executive and in
accordance with the Gas Safety (Installation
and Use) Regulations 1998.
ecoTEC combination boiler
The ecoTEC combination boiler is a fully automatic, wall
mounted, room sealed condensing (high efficiency)
boiler for central heating and domestic hot water.
Domestic hot water is supplied directly from the boiler,
without requiring a copper cylinder, cold water tank,
feed and expansion vessel and associated pipework.
Domestic hot water has priority over central heating.
The ecoTEC plus combination boiler consists of 3 models
with outputs of 23 kW, 31 kW and 37 kW for domestic hot
water and two pro versions with outputs of 24 kW and
28 kW for domestic hot water.
All versions are available in natural gas. The ecoTEC plus
831 is also available in LPG.
ecoTEC combination boilers incorporate a warm start
facility that keeps the domestic hot water heat
exchanger hot, providing an instantaneous delivery of
domestic hot water. The temperature in the domestic hot
water heat exchanger is limited by the boiler control system and it is not necessary to install a scale reducer on
the cold mains to the boiler. However, in areas that get
exceptionally hard water, a scale reducer may be
fitted to prevent scale formation in the hot water
system pipes. The heating system on ecoTEC plus
combination boilers can be filled using the built–in filling
loop contained within the boiler.

Introduction
boiler for central heating and domestic hot water (where
a separate indirect hot water storage cylinder is also
incorporated in the system).
The ecoTEC system boiler consists of models with
outputs of 12, 15, 18, 24, 30 and 37 kW.
All ecoTEC system boilers are available in Natural Gas.
The ecoTEC plus 618 and 630 are also available in LPG.
1.7
General Notes
The boilers have been designed for use with a sealed
central heating system, and come fully tested and
assembled with a built in circulating pump, expansion
vessel and diverter valve (ecoTEC combination boilers).
The boilers are easily mounted on any internal wall and
can be installed with either a horizontal or vertical RSF
(room sealed fan assisted) flue.
The boilers use a standard flue system (100 mm or
125 mm outside diameter). Flue extensions and
additional bends and elbows are available for the flue
system to increase the flexibility. If desired, an inhibitor
may be used in the system. Guidance on the use of
inhibitors is contained in these instructions.
All boilers have a built in diagnostic system which
indicates the operational status of the boiler. This
feature provides key information to aid commissioning
and fault finding. The data badge is fitted to the
underside of the boiler. See text of General
Requirements for installation requirements or notes.
1.8
Intended use
The Valliant ecoTEC are state-of-the-art appliances
which have been constructed in accordance with
recognised safety regulations. Nevertheless, danger to
the life and limb of the user or third parties can still
occur or the appliance or other material assets be
impaired in the event of improper use.
The unit is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and/or knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the unit by a person responsible for
their safety.
Children must be watched to ensure that they do not
play with the unit.
The appliance is designed to generate heat for
connecting to hot water central heating systems and for
instantaneous hot water supply (ecoTEC combination
boilers only). Any other use or extended use is
considered to be improper. The manufacturer or supplier
is not liable for any resulting damage. The user alone
bears the risk.
Intended use includes the observance of the operating
and installation manual and the adherence to the
inspection and maintenance conditions.
Improper use of any kind is prohibited.

Vaillant Ltd. supports the Benchmark initiative. At the rear of this guide, you will find a
Benchmark gas boiler commissioning checklist. It is very important that this is completed
correctly at the time of installation, commissioning and hand over to the user.
Benchmark places responsibilities on both
manufacturers and installers. The purpose is
to ensure that customers are provided with
the correct equipment for their needs, that it
is installed, commissioned and serviced in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions by a competent person approved at the
time by the Health and Safety Executive and
that it meets the requirements of the appropriate Building Regulations.
The Benchmark Checklist can be used to
demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations and should be provided to the customer
for future reference. Installers are required to
carry out installation, commissioning and servicing work in accordance with the Benchmark Code of Practice which is available from
the Heating and Hot water Industry Council
who manage and promote the Scheme.

in the following cases:
– for start-up,
– for test purposes,
– for continuous operation.
Otherwise, under unfavourable operating conditions,
there is a risk of injury, death or material damage.
What to do in an emergency if you smell gas
A malfunction may mean that gas is leaking and there
may be a risk of poisoning or explosion. If there is a
smell of gas in the building, proceed as follows:
> Avoid rooms that smell of gas.
> If possible, open doors and windows fully and ensure
adequate ventilation.
11
3 General requirements
> Avoid the use of naked flames (e.g. lighters, matches).
> Do not smoke.
> Do not use any electrical switches, mains plugs, doorbells, telephones or other intercommunication systems in the building.
> Close the gas meter isolator device or the main isolator device.
> If possible, close the gas stop cock on the unit.
> Warn other occupants in the building by yelling or
banging on doors or walls.
> Leave the building.
> If you can actually hear gas leaking, leave the building
immediately and ensure that other persons do not
enter the building.
> Alert the fire brigade and police when you are outside
the building.
> Use a telephone outside the building to inform the
emergency service department of the gas supply
company.
What to do in an emergency if you smell flue gas
A malfunction may mean that there is a smell of flue gas
and may lead to a risk of poisoning. If there is a smell of
flue gas in the building, proceed as follows:
> Open doors and windows fully and ensure air is circulating.
> Switch off the gas-fired wall-hung boiler.
Material damage caused by corrosion
To prevent corrosion on the unit and also in the flue
installation, note the following:
> Do not use any sprays, solvents, chlorinated cleaning
agents, paint, adhesives or similar substances in the
vicinity of the unit.
Under unfavourable circumstances, these substances
may cause corrosion.
Preventing frost damage
If there is a power cut, or if the room temperature is set
too low in individual rooms, it cannot be ruled out that
sections of the heating system might be damaged by
frost.
> If you are going to be away during a cold period,
make sure the heating system remains in operation
and that the rooms are sufficiently heated.
> Please always observe the instructions concerning
frost protection in section 6.1.
Maintaining operation in the event of a power cut
Your competent person connected your gas-fired wallhung boiler to the power mains during installation. If the
power supply is cut, it is possible that parts of the heating system may be damaged by frost. If you want to
maintain the operation of the unit during a power cut
using an emergency power generator, take note of the
following:
> Make sure that the technical values of this generator
(frequency, voltage, earthing) match those of the
power mains.
12
Material damage due to improper use and/or unsuitable tools
Improper use and/or unsuitable tools may result in
material damage (e. g. gas or water leaks).
> Always use a suitable open-ended spanner to tighten
or undo threaded connections.
> Do not use pipe wrenches, extensions, etc.
Changes to the surroundings of the boiler
Changes may not be made to the following equipment:
– the boiler
– the gas, air, water and electricity supply pipes
– the exhaust gas delivery pipe
– the drain line and expansion relief valve for the heating water
– the structural conditions that could affect the operational reliability of the unit
Important note on operation with liquid gas
Venting the liquid gas tank during installation:
If the tank is not vented properly, this may result in ignition problems. You must therefore observe the following
when installing the system:
> Before installing the unit, make sure that the gas tank
has been vented.
The liquid gas supplier is responsible for ensuring that
the tank is vented properly. In such cases, first contact
the person in charge of filling the tank.
> Also observe the information on conversion to liquid
gas in section 6.2 of these instructions.
Installation below ground level
> For installation in rooms below ground level, you must
observe the national regulations.
We recommend that you use an external solenoid valve
(to be fitted on-site). You can connect the external solenoid valve directly on the PCB or via the add-on module
“2 in 7”.
Avoid incorrect gas types:
Use of the wrong type of gas results in ignition and combustion noises as well as fault shutdowns. You must
therefore take note of the following:
> Affix the enclosed tank sticker (propane quality) to
the tank or cylinder cabinet where it is clearly visible,
if possible close to the filler nozzle.

BS 5440–1: It is recommended that the fanned flue
terminal should be positioned as follows:
a) at least 2 m from an opening in the building directly
opposite, and
b) so that the products of combustion are not directed
to discharge across a boundary.

Detailed recommendations for air supply are given in
BS 5440: Part 2.
It is not necessary to have an air vent in the room or
internal space in which the boiler is installed.
Cupboard or compartment ventilation
The boilers are very high efficiency appliances. As a
consequence the heat loss from the appliance casing
during operation is very low. For cupboard or
compartment installations it is therefore not necessary
to provide any high or low level permanent air vents for
cooling purposes.
3.9
1) Dimensions B, C and D:
These clearances may be reduced to 25 mm without
affecting the performance of the boiler.
In order to ensure that the condensate plume does
not affect adjacent surfaces the terminal should be
extended as shown in Fig. 3.9.
2) Dimension F:
This clearance may be reduced to 25 mm without
affecting the performance of the boiler. However, in
order to ensure that the condensate plume does not
affect adjacent surfaces a clearance of 300 mm is
preferred. For IE, recommendations are given in the
current edition of IS 813.
Air supply
Electrical supply
A 230 V, ~ 50 Hz single phase electricity supply fused to
3 Amp. must be provided in accordance with the latest
edition of BS 7671 (IEE Wiring Regulations) and any other
local regulations that may apply. In IE reference should
be made to the current edition of the ETCI rules. The
method of connection to the mains electricity supply
must provide a means of completely isolating the boiler
and its ancillary controls. Isolation is preferably by the
use of a fused three pin plug and unswitched shuttered
socket outlet, both complying with the requirements of
BS 1363. Alternatively, a 3 Amp. fused double pole switch
with a 3 mm contact separation on both poles may be
used.

Detailed recommendations for the water circulation
system are given in BS 6798 and BS 5449: Part 1 (for
small bore and micro bore central heating systems).
Pipework not forming part of the useful heating surface
should be insulated to help prevent heat loss and
possible freezing, particularly where pipes are run
through roof spaces and ventilated underfloor spaces.
Draining taps must be located in accessible positions
which permit the draining of the whole system including
the boiler and the hot water system. Draining taps
should be at least 1/2 in. BSP nominal size and be in
accordance with BS 2879.
The boiler is suitable for use with minibore or microbore
systems. Copper tubing to BS 2871: Part 1 should be used

Caution!
Risk of damage from aluminium corrosion
resulting in leakages caused by unsuitable
heating water!
Unlike materials such as steel, cast iron or
copper, aluminium is reactive to alkalised
heating water (pH-value > 8,5) which results in
significant corrosion.
> With aluminium, ensure that the pH value
of the heating water ranges between 6.5
up to a maximum of 8.5.
Caution!
Risk of damage if the heating water is
treated with unsuitable frost or corrosion
protection agents!
Frost and corrosion protection agents may
cause changes in the seals, noises during
heating and possibly subsequent damage.
> Do not use any unsuitable frost or corrosion protection agents.

Condensate drain pipe
The ecoTEC plus appliances are fitted with a siphonic
trap (The filling height is 145 mm). The siphon collects
the accumulated condensate in a container of approx.
200 ml capacity and directs the entire content into the
drain pipe. The risk of the condensate drain pipe
freezing is thus minimised.
The ecoTEC pro appliances are equipped with a normal
condensing water trap where the condensate is
constantly emptied into the drain pipe.
> Connect the boiler condensate drain (1) to a condensate discharge pipe (2) which should be minimum of
19 mm internal diameter (22 mm external diameter for
any pipework installed external to the property) and
be made of an acid resistant material
(e.g. plastic overflow pipe).
28
i
The discharge pipe from the boiler condensate drain must have a continuous fall (45 mm
per meter) and preferably be installed and
terminated within the building to prevent possible freezing.
Flush all foreign matter from the mains supply before connecting to the boiler.
> Insert the seal (1) and connect the service valve (2) to
the appliance cold water connection.
> Fit the union nut (4) and the compression olive (3) to
the pre-formed tail provided with ecoTEC plus appliances (5). The diameter of the pipe is 15 mm.

> Insert the seal (7) and connect in the pipe (6) to the
appliance hot water connection. The diameter of the
pipe is 15 mm.
> Mount the handle for the filling loop with a countersunk screw to the service valve (2).
4.11
i
If a boiler does not include a siphon then any
external condensate drainage pipe shall be
increased to a minimum diameter of 32 mm
nominal diameter to reduce the risk of freezing. In exposed locations, the condensate
drainage pipework shall be protected with
waterproof pipe insulation. Additionally when
a boiler is installed in an unheated location
such as a garage all condensate drainage
pipes should be considered as external.

The condensate discharge pipe must terminate in a suitable position, e.g.:
a) preferably the discharge pipe should run and
terminate internally to the house soil and vent stack
(at least 450 mm above the invert of the stack). A trap
giving a water seal of at least 75 mm (3) (built into the
boiler) should be incorporated into the pipe run, and
there must be an air break (4) in the discharge pipe
upstream of the trap. The connection to the stack
should not be made in a way that could cause cross
flow into any other branch pipe, or from that branch
pipe into the condensate drainpipe. This can be
achieved by maintaining an offset between branch
pipes of at least 110 mm on a 100 mm diameter stack
and 250 mm on a 150 mm diameter stack.
b)connecting into the internal discharge branch
(e.g. sink waste or washing machine) with an external
termination, the condensate discharge pipe should
have a minimum diameter of 22 mm with no length
restriction and should incorporate a trap with a 75 mm
(3) (built into the boiler) seal. The connection should
preferably be made down stream of the sink waste

trap. If the connection is only possible upstream, then
an air break is needed between the two traps. This is
normally provided by the sink waste.
c) terminating in a gully (5) below grid level (6) and
above the water level. The external pipe length should
be kept as short as possible to minimise the risk of
freezing and should not be more than 3 m.
d)at a condensate absorption point (soakaway) (7). The
external pipe length should not be more than 3 m.
4.12
Heating connection
b
Refer to ‘BS 6798 Specification for installation of
gasfired boilers of rated input not exceeding 70 kW net’
for further information. Before operating the boiler the
condensate trap (1) must be filled with water as
described in relevant section.
Caution!
Risk of damage to flow and return valves
caused by heat transfer!
If the final connections are soldered, the heat
transferred during the process may damage
the flow and return valves.
> Do not solder fittings to the pipes whilst
connected to the flow and return valves.
> Cool and clean the pipes before fitting
them into the valves.
> Ensure all subsequent soldering operations
are carried out at least 450mm away from
the valves.

in the enclosed manual.
4.16
Thermostatic radiator valves
The boiler has a built in automatic by-pass valve making
it ideal for use in systems with thermostatic radiator
valves (no separate system by-pass is required). For optimum fuel economy where TRV’s are used they must be
used in conjunction with a boiler control interlock. A programmable room thermostat or separate timer and
room thermostat will ensure complete boiler shut down
when the heating demand is satisfied. (The radiator in

The boiler incorporates a built in anticycling control to
ensure that energy wasteful short cycling of the boiler
cannot occur. This control prevents the boiler from
reigniting for a preset period after central heating
operation (the hot water operation is unaffected by this
control and hot water can be drawn at any time).
i
4.20
To temporarily override the anticycling control turn the main boiler on/off switch to the
off position “0” and then back to the on position “I” after a few seconds.
Automatic pump spin control (APS)
The boiler incorporates a built in control which will spin
the built in circulating pump and operate the diverter
valve (ecoTEC combination boilers only) once in a
23 hour period. This control helps to prevent seizure
when the boiler is not operated for a period of time. This
control is not active when the power supply to the
appliance is turned off.

a check for correct polarity.
5.2
Gas supply
The complete gas installation including the gas meter
must be inspected, checked for leaks and purged in
accordance with BS 6891. In IE the current edition of
IS 813. The gas supply to the boiler can be purged by
slackening the gas service valve beneath the boiler.
Ensure that there is adequate ventilation, extinguish all
naked flames and do not smoke whilst purging. After
purging, the gas service valve connection must be
retightened and checked for leaks (the boiler itself does
not require purging as this will be done by the automatic
burner sequence control).
5.3
The ecoTEC appliances come with a manometer and a digital pressure indicator.
The manometer allows you to quickly check
whether the filling pressure is in target range
or not even when the appliance is turned off.
If the appliance is in operation, you can display the exact pressure by pressing the “-”
(2).
For the heating system to operate properly, the indicator
on the manometer (1) must be in the dark grey area
when the system is cold.
This corresponds to a filling pressure between (1.0 and
2.0 bar) 0.1 and 0.2 MPa. If the pointer is in the light grey
area, refill water.
If the heating system extends over several storeys, the
system may require a higher filling pressure.

a
a
Danger!
Risk of injury and risk of damage to property due to neglected inspection and maintenance!
Neglected inspection and maintenance works
or not observing the stated inspection and
maintenance intervals can interfere with the
operational safety of the boiler and can result
in damage to property and to persons.
> Point out to the operator that he must
observe the demanded inspection and
maintenance intervals as a minimum.
> Carry out proper regular inspections once
a year.
> Carry out regular maintenance as dictated
by findings during the inspection process.
The frequency of maintenance must not be
longer than every 5 years.
We recommend the conclusion of an inspection and
maintenance contract with an approved company or installer.
The inspection serves to determine the actual condition of the
respective boiler and compare it with the specified condition.
This is done by measuring, checking and observing.
Maintenance is required in order to eliminate any deviations
of the actual condition from the specified condition. This normally is done by cleaning, adjustment and, if necessary,
replacing individual components that are subject to wear.
You must carry out an annual inspection of the
Vaillant ecoTEC.
It is possible to perform a quick, accurate inspection without
removing components by requesting data from the DIA
system, carrying out the simple visual checks indicated in
Table 7.2 and performing a flue gas measurement.
The maintenance intervals (at least once every 5 years) and
their scope are determined by the heating engineer based on
the condition of the boiler found during the inspection.
All inspection and maintenance work should be performed in
the order specified in Table 7.2.
a
Danger!
Danger of life and limb due to improper
inspection/maintenance!
Inspections/Maintenance work carried out
improperly can result in leakages and explosion.
