    Have a Baxi combi 100 HE plus boiler. My understanding is it will be around 14 years old so likely will need replacing in near future although still working ok.
    The pipe that comes from the top of the boiler to the outside for exhaust fumes has developed a drip (from the condensation) As likely to need replacing I dont want to spend in excess of £100 for a new pipe.
    I thought about getting a PVC pipe and use that but then though that the original is possibly double skinned (not sure though)
    Does anyone know if this is the case and or could I replace (safely) with a PVC pipe.
    The boiler is exterior to the main part of the house.

    No you can’t, it has to be manufacture specific or manufacture approved. Where is the drip?

    Drip appears to be from the joint at the elbow.

    Might just be a seal - engage with a registered gas safe engineer, and parts should still be available
