Getting a rolling boil

Do you really need all that to achieve a rolling boil?

What is your heat source? Everyone's set-up is a little / lot different but a rolling boil shouldn't be that difficult to achieve.

If your not getting enough boiling action :o from your Peco Boiler you could try insulating it or trapping some heat by partially covering the top. I don't think the temperature control will help with the rolling boil as its just a automatic switch turning the heating element on and off. You could also add a additional elementhttp://www.thehomebrewcompany.ie/spare-kettle-element-24kw-p-1100.html to get it hopping but this is probably an overkill for 32l.  If the problem is too much rolling boil action ??? then you probably need another way of reducing the power to the element. By the way, welcome to the forum.

You shouldn't have any problem with that kettle boiling.
if you recently bought it, get onto the seller and explain what's happening.
It might just be a dud. It happens
