    I'm having a new ensuite fitted and we have bought a concealed shower valve.

    baxi combi problems

    firstly I had a whistle after the hot water was switched off. They came out a replaced a valve of some sort free of charge during the summer to fix it. However, after switching the CH on a few weeks ago, some of the radiators don't come on. This was fine before the Baxi man came and fixed the...
