    What would anybody care to hazard as a fair price for a, pre oil boiler install, flush.
    There are 20 radiators in total. Am awaiting a figure from a heating firm and
    am not very expectant on a good price as they seem to come up with random figures.
    They gave me a figure 2 years ago for a Kamco flush which was £550 then so god knows what it will be now. I have seen you can hire a machine for £150 a week maybe the DIY route is the way to go.

    If done properly that will be a long day. 550 for 20 rads seems ok to me.

    Depending on the state of the system that could easily be a day and a half to 2 days work. We don’t discuss prices on the forum as there is so much geographical fluctuation

    Fully understand but the £550 was 2 years ago!

    Why not get the boiler installer to do it as part of the job

    Experience is key with a flush. Could take 2 days. Sounds cheap to me.

    I concur I’d be doing only 10-12 rads for that

    Was think down those lines until he came back with stupid prices for the boiler install so am looking elsewhere.
