Dokko Posted January 15, 2009 Share Posted January 15, 2009 Of the heating kind, not the mingers. Got a Baxi combi boiler and the thing is as reliable as JFK's mouth in a press conference. The thing is forever breaking, i mean all the bloody time. We've been with the same guy for nearly two decades, he used to patch up our old boiler a lot to keep it going, then it was cheaper and worth doing. But it got to a time where we got another one, this baxi thing. We were promised a super reliable boiler that would only ever need servicing. So we've had this for ten years, and we have the twats out every 6 months for something or other. Enough really is enough and he's gone too far this time. We had a service 5 weeks ago. Before then everything fine for at least the last nine months, which is near a record. The service £100. Then two weeks later the circuit board blows costing us £150. then just last night the thing starts pissing water and needs a new valve £100, just for the valve. Had a go at the guy and didn't charge us labour but for fuks sake, anytime they go anywhere near to fix it something else breaks, i really wonder if its on purpose? The boiler cost £2k or something, in the last 10 years we've at least doubled that in costs to maintain it, somethings surely up? So anyone a heating engineer? Are we just unlucky? Are we being fleeced, and does anyone know of any cover like British Gas do (but cheaper) that will see us never paying for the fuking thing again?
