Good afternoon, and welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches customers' questions to experts in various skills. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today.

The expansion vessel for your boiler should cost you £100-£120. The part number is ***** The only gasket you need is a fibre washer, and I can't remember if this comes with it, but they're available cheaply at any plumbers' merchant.

Has anyone checked that the EV has failed? It would be shame to buy a new one and then find that the fault is elsewhere.

I am definitely satisfied with your reply. However what does an EV failed mean?

EV == expansion vessel.

Have you actually seen water dripping from it?

If I made a mistake, I apologise. I received a notification from JustAnswer of a negative ratring, timed at 16:52 on Friday. Is it possible that you inadvertently clicked on 1 star instead of 5?
