Client has no hot water from boilermate.
First plumber says he's never dealt with system that has 3
pumps, No charge.
Second plumber says pump to DHW heat exchanger not working but can do nothing because of corrosion. Charge £194.
Fault was air lock, sorted in ten minutes.
Second plumber's fee was excessive given that pump was heard running and problem eventually solved without spanner work on any suspect pipework.
On the plus side it made my fee for replacing with unvented cylinder more than reasonable.
