ARISTON Primo ITD150 leaking

Customer Question

After a 1-year let, my Ariston Primo ITD15 cylinder found stained by limescale (leak from the top immersion), slime on "expansion" pipe, wet exterior wall & ground below. Tundish is clean, valve above operates OK.  Minor scaling around the pressure/temperature relief valve. Expansion vessel tested - no pressure/air but no water coming out.  Vessel fitted in a vertical position (with black top UPWARDS) the "wrong" way according to Ariston Manual + via a flexible hose.  Just received an estimate for : BOTH immersions (but - no gaskets quoted for !) @  £20 each +  £35 for new vessel ("must have raptured" - but no water coming out so not sure if I can trust him).  Also - he estimates FOUR HOURS to do this job @£60/hr !  Please advise how best to proceed.
