    Unlikely to be the boiler itself. Much more likely to be a gas connection to the boiler.

    Old people are very likely to leave gas cookers turned on by accident and there is no current easy warning of that. A gas detector giving an audible alarm would be useful for that but dont really exist.

    But the boiler does not look like most current condensing boilers and make me wonder if they have been ripped off with a clearance non current model.

    I have not seen those before but I will now be able to offer them for suitable situations.

    Although my experience of anything Skytronic is that they are not at all reliable though.

    never used them either so don't know how reliable they are (£12.99 is a bit cheap for my liking) but I suppose they have to do what they say on the tin

    there are other makes too

    again I have no experience of these

    scratch that, agree with above, definately a wooseter, who else would put a prv in such a daft place.
    Maybe thats what happened, they were trying to get the prv out and realised the easiest way was to blow the house up and get the boiler on its front :D

    this is very true, look how easy that PRV is to get to now, 30 second job, obviously after the dust has settled :D :D
