Plumber says the heat exchanger aluminium baffles are breaking down and blocking the pipe which he showed me,now the question is do I change the heat cell or go for a new boiler.
My boiler is 13 years old.

Not worth a new hex + labour imo however there is a market for refurbished hex units, I'd consider that.



I'm not endorsing this seller, just saying they are available.

don't know if I would use one but that's pretty cheap.
