    Well unfortunately, even though I have said countless times, the message doesn't seem to be getting through, I thought big letters might help......

    Hopefully you know i was joking anyway but

    A forum such as this and the CC is filled with not only different engineers but different personalaities and as such some of us will offer advice on what we see as an inflated quote and some will say you should not do that etc etc.
    If we all wanted to fit the same mould we would all work for BG
    To be fair on the OP i think the diagnosis to be completely wrong anyway (and i know i have not seen the boiler) as its highly unlikely that any boiler would be doing anything with either a Busted DV or EV for a long time neither mind both at the same.
    But hey ho what do i know?
    My point is that from the facts we have if it needed a new DV and EV in a uninhabited boarded out, lighted loft space (i might start tugging here so sorry in advance) then there is no way that that price stands and even BG know that!!!!

    If what you have to say is a load of unhelpful diatribe it doesn't matter how big a font you use to write it; it'll still be ignored.

    On the assumption you've got better things to be doing than endlessly moaning put your efforts into being helpful and you might find you are listened to more and won't have to keep repeating yourself. :)

    Maybe if tightwads didn't keep coming on here trying to screw their plumbers out of paying them, or get some idiot on here to come out with a stupid low price for a job they haven't even seen so they can then go and throw it in the fitters face, then I wouldn't have to repeat myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself mmyself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself myself

    All 105 expansions are at the back......yup an external would be fine but maybe the OP asked for a like for like??

    Who the hell cares what was quoted if the op accepts then it's ok.....none of us have seen the job so stop carping......the price is steep assuming all things being equal/easy.....but we can't confirm or deny this can we??!!
