Well done Splash another thing we now know thatíll save time 👍


I only suspected it was an air lock as I had the same thing happen a couple of years ago , I did think like you if it wasnít that it would be the circulation pump they are expensive at £300 a go , so glad it was an air lock

Anyone with lots of employees will never go down the hot water route it needs to be  Installed properly and to do that itís not cheap per van,I once heard a comment on here from someone similar to that example something like,if I was on my own or had just one employee I would have a hot system-systems itís just not viable with a lot of vans 🤣 if I built and sold systems theyíd only be Hot coming out of my workshop 👍.


I have hot water systems  in all my vans with employees

Thatís the thing with the 5kw it is a lot easier to service yourself anything hardware is easy enough to swap out and replace once youíve done it a few times and taken pictures as you go,I think the burner only took less than an hour to swap over itís as easy as undoing 4-5 screws changing the gasket  and burner and putting back together,reconnect the pipes and youíve got a new burner.

Why don't you just use the Webasto UK website to find an authorised service engineer closest to where you live? That's what I did and have used them for services many times since 2010 when I had my first hot system from PF.

From my experience the agent advertised by Webasto UK in Middlesbrough hasn't done Webasto repairs for the past 2 years. The guy who did retired and they haven't replaced him.

The agent advised in Durham talked the talk but when it came to the point of getting a unit booked in for repair they responded they would get back to me. Still waiting but I just knew at the time it wasn't going to happen.

If you find someone who has been in the repair side for years on the canals then you have a better chance of getting a unit repaired than we do.

There was a guy on Ebay offering a repair service for Thermo 90's. His charge was nearly £400 plus parts.  May as well buy a new one for £1350 because your repair costs won't be much less than that. Ask Splash and Dash.

it seems to be quite difficult to find someone who is sufficiently qualified who ll service them.........

You can also buy a 12kw knock off Eberspacher Hot water heater  from China for peanuts. I'm sure there would be customs and import tax to pay on that.

https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Remote-Control-12KW-24V-12V-waterParking_60859189664.html?spm=a2700.details.deiletai6.1.29365db7ka52qO

Its turning these things into becoming throw away products. The problem is the Germans don't know that yet.

The Chinese have already shown that with their mass produced air heaters. I would love to know what Eberspatcer's Airtronic sales are like now.
