    772897AD-E191-4FD6-87A6-66DD62B6EFF8.jpeg Hi everyone yesterday I had a boiler quote for veismann boiler new fitted but the quote didn’t include a power flush only a chemical flush, I thought all new boiler installs include a power flush? Otherwise the warranty is not included Also the fitting they said takes one day, thought it would take longer I’ve added quite any and I’ve would be great thank you

    Nope. System water has to be a certain condition (as spec by MI's) and as long as this is achieved (by whatever method) the warranty stands.

    Ask installer for proof this has been achieved.

    I take a day powerflushing.
    Depending on the age of the radiator valves. I'll replace them all for a better PF. As well as updating the system.

    However if your system is really old he may think a PF could cause leaks. But if that were the case he should be sticking to a vented as and not a sealed system. So he would keep the small tank in your loft.

    Is he up dating controls?

    Not updating controls, should I just pay extra and get a power flush wouldn’t it make the system better and protect boiler long term I brough the house a year ago and don’t know the history? Thanks

    Get a 2nd quote./ opinion

    I always like to PF. I say if it leaks at least you have a plumber on site.

    In all my years I've only had a handful of leaks.

    there was an option of an openvent or system boiler my current one is a open vent, is there any advantage of a system boiler or just stick to open vent already of a functioning pump and expansion vessel thanks
