Adventures of a Plumber's Mate...

I had the day off today so have called in a plumber to give my central heating system a Power Flush. The plumber's mate is currently banging my pipes and radiators with his rubber hammer whilst the plumber is manning the pump. They need to get my sludge moving apparently. There are pumps, pipes, plastic sheeting, hydromagnets, tools and arse-cracks as far as the eye can see. Such fun. And all for £300 + VAT. Or so they quoted.

UPDATE: Unfortunately the radiator in my bathroom is refusing to work. They suspect a fault valve somewhere under the floorboards so they may need to rip up the hermetically sealed lino in the bathroom and possibly the carpet and floorboards on the landing. Doesn't sound cheap...
