    I have a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 28i that hasn't been serviced in years.

    It needs a full service and expansion vessel & PRV replacing. I have been quoted £150 labour and parts will be £100. He also mentioned that these greenstar juniors arnt the easiest to work with ?

    The flu is mounted sideways so removing vessel won't be difficult.
    Am based in Leicester so not London prices.

    Does it sound about right ?

    Good price.

    My guy charges £115 for a major service. And £75 for a yearly.

    I think the major is every 2 years.

    Its losing pressure all the time, The air valve on the vessel blows out water and the overflow outside drips water

    Just make sure that you see proof that he is gas safe registered (NOT Corgi!).

    Well sorry but as you said it has never been serviced, probably just needs re-charging correctly, should be checked at every service, to be fair though far too many lazy so called engineers dont check it and dont know how to properly re-charge an EV, if I was in your shoes I would get Worcester to properly servive the boiler, not someone who presses in the schraeder valve and you will get value for your money

    Am not sure where you'll al based but am in Leicester. (Northern to Londoners)

    Ive rang a few engineers in my area and they're all quoting £150-£200 labour for service and changing parts.
