    Just to ask, I have just had a boiler fitted recently and it seems to be 'farting/rumpling!! When the temp in increased or the boiler starts up it seems to go. I noticed not all the water drip our of the boiler chimney. Could it be running back into the boiler? I did read about the combustion mixture could be out? Its in warranty
    can anyone help or advise?

    Is it a squeaky fart, mid tone rumble or something more in line with somebody about to follow through?

    Seriously though, any concerns or questions should be aimed back at the installer. Especially if it's a recent install.

    If you don't have a dog, blame the boiler instead:D

    Sounds like there might be a problem with flue seal, get the installers back
