IME once one of these cracks open at over pressure they do not reseal

Oh! That's a bit worrying. I suspect mine has been opening due to water
hammer when the changeover valve operated. I have put in a relief valve
set at around 0.8 bar shunting the boiler output through the DHW coil
and then back to the boiler.
