    Four visits - one visit to diagnose problem as pressure switch or maybe fan, second visit to fit new pressure switch (fix failed within 2 days), third visit , fan declared fine now possible PCB error, 4th fitted replacement PCB

    Charge time 10 hours at £45 per hour - is this reasonable ? Parts were extra.

    How much would a fixed price repair from manufacturer, including parts, have cost?

    Sounds good to me, but I’m a plumber also. If I worked 40 hours for £500 I’d be thinking to myself, this guy earns £3600 a week WTF!

    well the usual questions ...where do you live ? £45 per hour is really not enough...central london £125.00 plus vat per hour,

    its really the wrong price per hour ..not enough to get a competant engineer in my opinion..others might correct me...Rob Foster aka centralheatking

    That’s where I’d start. If it were a faulty part I don’t see why you should be paying for part or labour

    Feck me could have fitted a new boiler in 10 hours.

    I charge for the fix plus the parts. Not for experimenting and crossing fingers.
