    My Tiger Loop has started leaking from the top.

    It drips approx once every 5 seconds.

    Can this be repaired or does it need to be replaced?

    Thanks chaps!

    Replace it. They only have a limited life and are not repairable as I understand.
    Should really be an internal Tigerloop with vent pipe to outside for current regs.
    Expensive though.
    The deairator in the photo is not actually Tigerloop
    I trust the Tigerloop brand.

    Thanks for the reply’s guys.
    I did take it to pieces to see if I could fix it but there’s a small rubber seal inside which isn’t a standard shape so I gave up.

    I have ordered a new one now which is the same type so I don’t have to change any pipework.

    It is sited in a boiler house but apparently there is an optional extra which allows you to vent externally so I might order that as well
