You only need to turn off the valves at both ends to change a filling loop.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

Hi Thanks. The problem being that the Combi Straight Filling Loop only has isolator at the coldwater mains supply end and not at the CH return end. The CH return end is just a simple back flow prevention check valve . Both ends are compressed to the 15mm pipework so I was worried id have to remove the whole device? Is it possible that I can just remove the braided section with the 2 winged ends. Its an O ring that has failed so if I could just get to the O Ring Id be sorted. Ive heard that the O ring is built in and cannot be got at. https://www.screwfix.com/p/combi-straight-filling-loop/46605
