Hi, I have two valves (On the central heating feed + return) which are leaking through the cut off control. I need help identifying what type they are(pressure\bleed or something else) and what I might be able to replace them with without having to change too much piping around (IE call a plumber).
Thanks :-)

No need to change any pipe work, just buy a new valve.

The front bit looks like a drain off.

What boiler is it?

This is it I think https://www.heatingspares247.com/vailla ... 14731.html Shop around though, that is too much in my opinion.

That’s an ecomax valve.

Not a bad price really dwd especially if delivery is included.

Sadly one gets ripped off for isolating valves, hence why I use them as a last resort, as a lot will leak after closing them.

Blimey Dave, I thought it was a bit strong but hopefully the OP might find a local supplier a bit cheaper. I guess the replacement of this valve is going to be a full drain down?

That's exactly what happened, I closed them to do a full drain down when replacing a few radiators.

The sad thing is that are both leaking, the plus side is that although they are pricey it looks like an easy swap job.

Thanks again to both of you for your help :thumbright:

Yes you will need drain down system and 2 nuts to release valve make sure you get new washers with valves.
