    @Rat I'm sure They could have fitted a new boiler probably cheaper then all the parts they need to supply

    Re: boiler issue

    well engineers has been he says it can only be 2 parts 2nd heat exchanger and hot water sensor, he has ordered the sensor first (don't carry stock any more ) if its the 2nd heat exchanger is a strip down job, wonder why he ordered small sensor first

    got to wait for them to ring now saying when they will fix it.

    Why is it when British Gas come out to do the annual service on your perfectly running boiler it is never the same afterwards?. They left my boiler with 2 gas leaks. His excuse was, he must have disturbed other pipework whilst servicing our boiler. Wtf???

    And he could easily have done, his mistake was not doing a pressure test when he was finished,plonker,should have his certification revoked

    He looked a right gormless sod,wiz, Lucky for us he never returned after he rectified the fault. We had to phone the National grid up and they turned the gas off and condemned the boiler. The gasman probably got the sack. after that

    Re: boiler issue


    Mine is all done
    11 hours it took them yesterday to put in a new combi boiler, had a condensing boiler but they upgraded me
    removed hot water tank
    removed old boiler and repositiond combi and flu new pipes etc

    constant hot water and the radiators have never been so hot

    Happy now and a long soak in the bath too
    Heaven

    Still think 12 days without hot water and heating during November is unacceptable so still putting in a complaint
