Central heating pump

Plumbing prices for central heating pump

The pump helps circulate the hot water around the ventral heating system. It is a fairly common item to go wrong either becoming very noisy of simply seizing up. When this happens the boiler can overheat and shut down (for safety reasons). In principle its not too hard to replace but I'd rather not. These are the prices people have paid to have a pump replaced (or repaired if possible...) and includes the cost of the pump and the time required to replace it by the plumber.

Central heating pump failure.3 bed/7 radiator semi.Estimated 90-100 by Arnold Local Plumbimng..or about 50-60 to fit.I checked this site and thought it was a good deal.Ended up having to drain system as pump was practically welded in place.Needed to remove pipework with pump, refill system,bleed everything and fit pump and pipework.Told it'd cost more. I explained I had a budget to stick to and with cost of pump(Terrier pump at 74.50,though since googling they cost @40) paid 134.50...gave them 140 as I thought they'd done me a favour..plus left me to re-bleed radiators to keep cost down.Fair prices compared to others but I do think that 50ph labour is too much.Just wish I'd mustered the courage to do it myself now! £140 item/job Nottingham 2010-10-20
