There’s nothing like a hot shower after a long day. You depend on your hot water system to make that possible, but it also depends on you for regular upkeep to avoid breaking down. No1PHD offers expert Megaflo service that will keep this vital system working properly so your household can continue to enjoy its comforts.
A Megaflo is a specific type of hot water cylinder that is part of what is known as an unvented hot water system. This means that the boiler is fed directly from the same water mains that the rest of the building is attached to and requires no cold water storage tank to function.
The primary advantage to using this type of boiler is that you can achieve excellent hot water pressure with it; there should be very little difference between the hot and cold lines in this respect. Megaflo units also come with another advantage compared to other unvented cylinders. All these units need to incorporate some room for the water to expand once it is heated, but Megaflo uses an internal air cushion for this instead of a bulky external addition. This makes the unit much more compact and easy to fit into tight spaces.
You’ll know if your cylinder is a Megaflo if it is clearly labelled as such on the front. Each model has slightly different servicing requirements, but our heating professionals know to read over the manufacturer’s instructions for the model in question to ensure that they do not miss any vital differences. You do not need to know which model you have installed in order to call in the services of a professional.
Like any boiler system, Megaflo systems need oversight and maintenance to avoid sudden failure – in fact, due to the complexity of their design, they require far more regular inspections than traditional systems do. That’s why companies like No1PHD offer Megaflo servicing to all interested customers.
The technician we send out to you will check the condition of all unit components such as the tubing, electrical housing, thermostat, and safety valves. They will also re-pressurize the air inside the unit so that the expansion vessel stays stable. During this process, they may perform some tests to verify their work.
Technicians also might ask you whether you’ve noticed anything strange happening with your Megaflo, or with your hot water systems in general. The things you tell them will let them know if there are any points of concern that they ought to pay special attention to. Once they have conducted the service procedures, your technician will take the time to inform you of anything they found, what work is required to fix those problems and what the approximate cost of that work might be.
If you haven’t had any specific complaints about your Megaflo system, you might think that you can get away with putting off a service appointment for a little while longer. That decision will save you money in the short term, but it could prove unwise in the long run. If you don’t keep up with your maintenance obligations, you could experience any of the following hot water problems:
It is strongly recommended that you get your Megaflo serviced every 12 months in order to keep it in peak working order and avoid these issues. If you don’t, you not only run the risk of experiencing negative effects – you might even void the manufacturer’s warranty and find yourself on the hook for the costs of fixing those problems. If it’s been a while since you last had your unit looked at, you should consider doing so as soon as possible.
Getting your Megaflo unit inspected and tuned up routinely is just one more part of being a responsible homeowner. No1PHD makes it easy for you to keep up with this duty. We perform thorough service checks that are sure to catch any burgeoning issues before they start to take a toll on your hot water system and become expensive to solve.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
