    You need to spend less time on YouTube adopting the views of others and form an opinion of your own. The majority of your videos are from the same guy who obviously has an issue with Worcester.

    The new Worcester's still have plastic manifolds and plastic flow turbine adapters....

    Good thinking. A boiler manufacturer who sends their engineers out to invalidate warranties. Expensive parts and long wait times on deliveries of said parts. That'll lead to happy happy customers.

    See every manufacturer have their faults

    Boiler in my own property. 5 visits under a 5 year guarantee, 3 diverter cartridges on a BRASS block, 1 PCB 1 gas valve and I've just changed the fan and it's 8 year old. Nearly every major component failed.

    Worcester plastics fail regularly. I agree composites are good. Worcester’s however are not.

    Yep WB plastic components are a joke, with the flow sensor, diverter valve and hydro block all housed in plastic and they all eventually fail with fractures and seal wear.
    Not to mention nearly all the water carrying connections are push and clip fit,
    But I,m not complaining repairing them is good money.
