Who said copper doesn't corrode?

Half of a central heating manifold


A good start to Christmas, finished late yesterday...saved the cieling...just


Replaced with plastic



Only one problem now....can't get two radiators to heat up, pipes in the loft are hot, but must be air somewhere cos it isn't reaching the rads.... maybe the pumps gone too sad

Glad it's sorted. That's some nasty corrosion you had there. There was definitely something iron based in that section, by the looks of it.

Re: Who said copper doesn't corrode?

It has 8 outlets (4 flow and 4 return) and a sealed divider in the middle, there are two in the system and the other half of this one is still like new, as is the other one....don't know how long it was leaking for, but noticed last winter the system was struggling to get hot and the boiler wouldn't reach temperature, now thats been done and this pump fitted normality has returned (had to go round turning the rads down last night)  big_smile
