First of all, thanks for visiting.
I'm Mike Bryant, also known as Mike the Boilerman.
I've built this site specifically to help owners of
Gledhill PulsaCoil thermal stores and/or their plumbers identify faults
and fix them.
Gledhill PulsaCoil water heaters are 'thermal stores', which work in
a significantly different way from ordinary hot water cylinders and
water heaters. Different enough to to mystify many heating
engineers when it comes to fixing them, it seems. Pulsacoils are not
to understand but they look intimidating, and without background knowledge
engineers understandably struggle to diagnose faults and repair them efficiently.
I've created this site with the three objectives.
1) To assist owners and repair engineers understand Gledhill
PulsaCoils better and the the faults that sometimes occur. There are several versions of the PulsaCoil. Here are pages
covering the four most common:
For more information
2) To promote my own PulsaCoil repair service. If you live within
driving distance of
Reading, then please contact me. Click here for
drive anywhere but most of my work is in Berkshire, north Hampshire, south Oxfordshire, West Surrey and
west London. If you are outside this area then by all means try me.
Travelling costs will be higher but if you are happy with that then I'm
happy to do the travelling!
3) To help you find a repair technician if you live hundreds of miles
away from me in Reading ;-) If that's the case I suggest you have a look
at the "Advertise your services here" section of my discussion
Or try Gledhill on
08445 679898. They now offer a repair service themselves. It's a fixed
price service costing more than many of the repairs I carry out (but not
necessarily all - I charge on a 'time and materials' basis), but at
least you can rely on them identifying the problem and fixing it
immediately using stock from the van, just like me :-)
If my pages of common PulsaCoil faults and
their symptoms and remedies don't help, I'm happy to give advice to anyone wanting
it via my Gledhill Repairs discussion forum. It's here.
Gledhill themselves also offer telephone technical support
during normal office hours but it's expensive. 60p per minute to be
precise. Their technical helpline number is 0906
For my sites covering repairs to other Gledhill heaters and boilers
Once again, thanks for visiting.
