kerny,

My uncle is a plumber up in Manchester and corgi registered. Put a Worcester in my mums house to replace the 30 year old unit which finally packed up. They have a great write up in Which magazine and is saving her 's

I would not have a worcester in my house if you gave me a free one, plumbers like them as they are easy of fit and they take the money and are gone (sorry we do not repair those sir ) . Heating engineers hate them as they are unreliable and expensive to fix. old worcesters were good, new are pants.


whatever you go for make sure that the installer runs the condensate drain pipe inside the house(if practical), as otherwise they freeze solid when you need them most and you will have no heating.

Our condensation pipe runs outside into a drain, but is fully insulated against freezing!

21.5mm overflow pipe with armaflex pipe lagging , the plumbers favorite.

they still freeze in the sub zero winters, a good income stream for me but a PITA for the householder.

If we have to run external we use 1 1/2" sink waste pipe and a heating trace wire, never had one freeze yet.

as we service and repair all makes , we see whats good and whats not , and as independents have no commercial axe to grind.
