Expansion Vessel change on Worcester 28 i junior


Hi All, does anyone know how long a professional heating engineer/plumber should take to change one if these as the vessel is clearly shot? Water coming out of the shrader valve.

Separately I have found out that occasionally it can be condensation not water and the valve is ok.

Thoughts on both?

Replacing a pressure tank is a pretty straight forward process, but depends on how it's connected into the rest of the system. Often times they are installed in a way that they aren't easily removable. So replacing requires cutting the pipes around it to get the old one out. Then if there are filters and such close by, that makes it harder still.

Are you interested in replacing it yourself? Otherwise, a call to a plumber would give you the answer you need! I'd imagine a professional could do it in about 45-90 minutes unless there were really some unforeseen issue.
