I've noticed when I leave my boiler on for a considerable time as I have done during the cold spell there's water underneath the boiler. There is no pressure loss.

I was told this is condensation as the hot and cold pipes underneath are too close together and cause condensation which drips from the pipes. is this right and is there anything I can do to rectify this?

Sorry to ask the obvious, but have you looked to see if it is condensation? (And who told you it is?)

I haven't had a proper look but definitely coming from the bottom of the boiler and no loss of pressure. The last engineer mentioned it at the last service.

insulate the cold water pipe, problem should be sorted. (I assume you only get condensation during the colder months)

I've only noticed it when I've had the heating on for a prolonged period of time so yes I suppose. I'll take a photo of the pipes later on and hopefully you can tell me what's what :thumbright:
