It could be.

Drain the boiler and remove the pump head, then check the impeller blades are clean, also the inlet and outlet of the pump body.

Ok will do.

I'll isolate the the boiler with the flow and return valves and then take the pump head off. May have to do that tonight as will be off to work now.

Will update on here.

Thanks Again.

Just checked top rads are not getting hot, only 2 of them but downstairs is ok.

Put the pump back on & fired up. Only a couple of rads getting hot and been running for 30 mins.

I cleaned the return valve filter again and it had some small bits of debris in there. The boiler is no longer banging as it was before though. Running quiet but still not getting the heat to the rads properly.

I will leave it running for a few hrs.

Drained the boiler again and checked the return valve filter once more and there was a fair bit of debris there again. Cleaned it off and when fired it up all the rads began to get hot within 10/15 mins.

I'm thinking more and more that it is a circulation problem from all the particles that have built up, most likely the system hasn't been treated. We moved in 3 yrs ago and a lot of stuff in the house has needed attention and I'm guessing the boiler was simply filled up, not serviced and left for 7/8 yrs then we moved in.

We actually had no gas supply to the cooker when we moved in and the pipe had simply been cut and filled with silicon and left unused. Shocker! Anyone that can do that will likely leave a boiler untreated to run its course and fail.

Glad you are slowly getting there with it.

Not much more I can add to help now.

Keep at it, I’m sure you will get it clean in the end.
