Well we moved into a new (to us) house and found that the central heating was not working properly. Heating was fine but no hot water. It is a Baxi Bemuda back boiler with a hot water rtank on the landing and a seperate emersion heater (If needed). We called a plumber that was recomended by the Local Council. They spent all day sucking air through their teeth and left at 5pm in the evening saying they were going to have to come back another day as things were still not right. They had replaced a few sections of push fit (plactic) pipes with copper and supplied and installed a very complecated timer( the old one was fine)
The following day i checked the timer and there was some hot water for a change. The plumber called to say they were going to come out again " and have another Go"????
I decided that i was not confident that they new what they were doing and told them to bill us for the work they had done:-
"Attend to carry out alterations to pipe work. Supply and install new programmer Copper pipe, fittings,programmer, pattress and cover plate."
Total Cost £513 48p????
We have now had another plumber round who has told us that its the 3 port valve that needs replacing as when the timer is set to hot water it does not switch and the water gets very hot increases in pressure and vents into the overflow tank in the loft. This new plumber has ordered the part and says that the other plumbers have a cheek asking so much money for so little work
What is everyones opinions??
