    Incredibly noisy boiler from flue.

    I've just had a Worcester Bosh 25-32 Heat Slave oil fired boiler installed and the sound from the flue is like a jet engine and can be heard 25 yards away at the bottom of my garden. I'm told oil fired boilers are quite noisy but this is ridiculous. Is this normal. I even spent a few pounds on a...

    Noisy Pipes

    We have an issue where every three days whenever we draw water from either flushing a loo or turning on a tap we get a loud 'trombone' like noise. To stop this from happening we turn off mains water and open all cold water taps to drain the system and turn mains back on. This repeats every...
