    We have a backboiler for 25 years, but how would you know it needs servicing and what is cost involved? Thank you

      Hi Helen,

      Sorry for the late response. I hope the below can help in some way.

      Firstly, it depends if it your boiler is solid fuel or gas.

      Some checks include:
      Visual inspection
      Pump replacement is required if the boiler is nearing end of life and if you replace yoru boiler the water circulation will increase immediately.
      Is there a Sludge build up? This will effect boiler efficiency
      Are there any leaks?
      Being honest, 25 years is nearing the end of life of any back boiler.

    I have an insert boiler stove which has developed a slight water leak in the back wall.Can this be welded or fixed in any way? Thank You

      Hi Diarmuid,

      The job would be too big to drain and weld, your best option in our experience is a replacement.
