    Never said the builder did the swap himself, he used a local Corgi registered installer, whom he used on a regular bases when it came to any gas work. I have no idea why you even suggested that I could ask a cat.:mad: or did you mean a cut?

    cats! Not a chance, perhaps a monkey might be trained to hang a boiler, but sure cats don't have limbs, they are lazy and rule the world.

    Because the question was about getting a professional opinion and you chose to believe the builder.....

    You mean like the ones they show on BBC on a program called Rip off Britain, where it puts one off seeking professional advise, or force selling, fake promises.
    Too late I am afraid, he is in heaven with virgins! and amazingly this thread is all over like a headless chicken, so we have covered builders, boiler installers, cats and dogs and monkeys and now chickens! what next sausages!

    sad to say cant give a model number altho it does have an RF remote control which says "alpha" on it. the boiler it self just says Baxi

    it does have a little bit of leak

    when u change a boiler surely it just hooks up to the existing pipe network? -
