I don't know if you found this page from a search, or if you came here from my Gledhill-Repairs website, but either way, thanks for visiting.

I'm Mike Bryant, also known as Mike the Boilerman. (My main website is, in case you haven't already heard!) I've built this site, and its sister sites, specifically to help owners of Gledhill thermal stores and/or their plumbers identify faults and fix them. I'm writing a page for each of their many models with a description of what they do, how they work and a list of the specific faults I've encountered on that particular model.

What IS a BoilerMate?

This page deals with BoilerMates in general. BoilerMates are thermal stores, in other words a tank full of water heated by an ordinary central heating boiler. The water never changes. It is used purely to store heat energy from the boiler. The stored hot water is pumped around the radiators top heat the house, and is used to heat domestic tap water before it arrives at the hot taps. This allows hot water to taps and showers at full mains pressure for high performance showering and faster bath filling.

(The boilermate is very similar to the SysteMate and the two are easily confused. The difference is that the Boilermate pumps the thermal store water around the radiators directly, meaning radiators cannot be installed at a higher level than the BoilerMate cistern. The SysteMate separates the central heating water from the thermal store water using a copper heating coil inside to transfer heat from the boiler primary into the thermal store water, allowing use of a sealed heating system and location of the SysteMate becomes free.)

For more on your BoilerMate in particular, find out which model you have (there is a label on the front of the unit) and click on the appropriate link on the left to see what I've written about the different models of BoilerMate. The pages are not necessarily complete. These websites are a continuous development as I learn more and write more about Gledhill appliances, so I'm publishing as I go, rather than waiting until everything is complete.  

 If my writings about your particular BoilerMate don't help (or don't exist!), I'm happy to give email advice to anyone wanting it. Just call or email me. Gledhill themselves also offer first class telephone technical support during normal office hours but at a price. Last time I checked it was 60p a minute so beware. The number is 0906 611 0005


Once again, thanks for visiting.
