    How much should a new boiler cost, fitted? 30th Sep 11 at 10:57 AM
    Just looking to get general ideas on how much a new boiler would cost?

    Currently we have an open vent system with a 20 year old boiler. We have a pump that supplies cold and hot water to the bathroom to get the extra pressure required for the large shower head. We could probably cope with a combi boiler, but given we only installed the pump last year (during a bathroom refit) Id like to keep it (I like the wet showers).

    So Id like to get a new boiler. Do newer systems still have separate zone control valves? or are they part of the boiler now? and would we still need a pump (or is this part of the boiler too?)

    We would also like to flush the system - is this possible on a microbore system with twin entry valves on the radiators? would it be worth upgrading the system away from microbore? how much would this cost?

    Any input appreciated
