    Great heaters if properly fitted... I repaired a couple of leaks in mine in the past... I replaced it in the end... I wish I hadn't...

    Now... a question... Are you certain where the leak is coming from? Mine had a frost damaged leak and it looked as though it was coming from a fitting but in the end it turned out to be a split in the pipe above the fitting... an easy to repair with solder fault...

    Sorry if this is Grandmas and Egg sucking...

    There is someone on ebay who repairs these and sells 2nd hand ones.

    May be worth a look to see if they are near you
