    Is this a fair quote for fitting rads and Magna Clean?

    Just went back to check the quote and the exact words are as mentioned in my OP "Fill, flush and test all works undertaken. Add protective inhibitor solution on completion." I just assumed a flush was a power flush - apologies - not very au fait with these terms :oops:

    Is this a fair quote for fitting rads and Magna Clean?

    No, it's an extended 1930s semi-detached. We took the radiator out of the back room as after the extension the room shape had changed and we can use a smaller one (600 x 700) which we bought. We are therefore moving the bigger one which we bought about two years ago to the front bedroom (same...

    Hi all We live in a hard water and I was thinking of fitting a water softener. Our plumber suggested a Culligan Waterside MC 450 and said he could fit it so that we have soft water upstairs but downstairs only the hot water would be softened. However on doing some research I have...

    Help Easter weekend and no hot water or central heating!

    Plumber came out and says he can't fix it - water is getting into the tank or something. Says he will try and get the Baxi guys out sooner. Don't think I can face a week without hot water - wish we had our trusty old boiler still.

    Thanks guys. Had a look at the Baxi web site and it says to contact the installer. Have phoned him up and left a message but he's not likely to reply on an Easter weekend, especially if he won't get paid for it. :roll:
