Plumbing Question

If i have a combi boiler in kitchen would i also be using the copper boiler in bathroom?

I've recently bought my own home and i have a combi boiler in my kitchen, and a large copper boiler in a cupboard in my bathroom. Do i need/use both? Thankyou

Hi Dave,
The copper boiler in the bathroom is actually a water cylinder, if it is a combi on the kitchen the cylinder will not be in use, are you sure it is a combi and not a system or heat only boiler that you have as usually the cylinder will be removed when installing a combi? Best way to easily check is that a combi boiler will have 5 pipes, a flow (22mm), hot (15mm), Gas (usually 22mm but can be 15mm), cold (15mm), return (22mm) coming from the bottom of the boiler.
Hope this is useful
