    Is it possible to fit a combi boiler to a single pipe heating system?

    Yes but your plumber will need to know what he's doing and performance won't be amazing but it probably isn't now
    Is there no scope to repipe to a flow and return system?

    As above, and normally they can't take the pressure

    You will get more out of the system if you re pipe it and the efficiently will be better

    Ok so it can be done and then at a later date the system can be changed to a two pipe system flow and return. A the moment the disruption would be so big running a dual pipe system Iwanted to know if the boiler packed up could it be done. the boiler at the moment is an Ideal standard Hide away. It has been Fantastic so far but I know it is getting old. It has been moved twice and the gravity hot water is a bit temprimental because of its latest position.
