    Baxi Bermuda 552 making a noise.

    trouble with replacement is that any new boiler that is fitted has to be a high efficiency boiler (condensing boiler) and i dont think you can get a condensing back boiler. you can prob sort the problem by introducing "boiler silencer" into the system. i have used it in a house i was renting...
