As the owner of Hot Water & Central Heating, I spend much of my time visiting properties where customers want advice and costings for boiler replacements, pressurised hot and cold water systems etc.
On one sunny day in March 09, I visited a couple in Limpsfield, Oxted (Surrey) with a Glowworm Energysaver. This boiler was significantly corroded and there was a saucer placed strategically to catch the drips.
Later on the same day I was at an address in Caterham, Surrey, at the site of a converted military barracks. Same boiler, same problem!
Here are a few photographs of the Caterham unit, which we removed and changed for a Viessmann 100 Compact.
Unfortunately, my camera batteries were flat when we finished the work, so there are no photographs at this stage of the renewal work.
Hot Water & Central Heating have also replaced the same boiler 2 doors away, around 18 months ago!
We have just received the go ahead to replace the unit in Oxted too; if the customer gives permission for photos, that will feature on this blog in the next 4-5 weeks (we are quite booked up at the moment).
