    Hi,

    Looking for advice as noticed today that the rubber collar seal with sits around the flue of my condensing boiler is coming away slightly on the top part from the external brickwork...is this something which needs to be looked at? Think the birds have been pulling at it!
    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply...the rest looks fine....I'll keep an eye on it...hopefully it will be ok till next boiler service in Feb/March don't want to waste gas engineers time for something trivial

    Is this something which will need to be fixed immediately? I've read through baxi installation book that came with boiler and can't see any reference to this...is it very important? Thanks all

    Hello scott_d,

    What is the situation where this Boiler is fitted and the Flue has to be extended out because of a Balcony above it or something similar - do the Flue extension pieces have a different material for the outer skin ?

    The Baxi Multifit Flue accessories range includes an `Under Balcony / Under Eaves` Kit and the Pipe etc. is White.

    As long as it is cemented it will be fine. It is only coming away slightly.
