A plumber. It’s basically a cylinder with a header tank built in isn’t it?

I think so... it’s got two sections, one for hot and another for cold. “Direct combination cylinder” is pretty much all it says on it. I wasn’t sure if it was a plumber, but that makes sense thank you!
Yes plumber required but if it’s leaking you will need replacement. Don’t let the plumber take the old one in as you will be able to get some cash back for it.

Ah ok! Thank you! Where would we take it for cash? (I’m asking, I’m sure my partner will know when he gets home) but good to know wonder if it’s likely cheaper to source a replacement myself and get a plumber to fit it. I know where the one we have came from, might be cheaper! Thanks for your help guys

Scrap metal merchant. Get an idea of price from Screwfix or Toolstation and see what the plumber quoted you. You probably need them to supply it to get a warranty with them.

Ah good point with the warranty. Ooh and I do know where he scrap metal place is too, handy! Thank you so much. On the hunt for a plumber now, hopefully before downstairs neighbour has a surprise!

The plumber will just add £30 to the invoice, I certainly do.

Ive found one and asked about that, he said he doesn't charge extra if we keep it - just a bonus if he does get to keep it haha. dont know if charging extra for that is standard but seems a bit harsh! (IMO, No offence) should all be fixed tomorrow! thanks for all your help guys
