I have a servowarm elite 50 boiler in my house, it's on the wall of my kitchen extension, don't know how old it is but must be ancient!
On Thursday there was a lot of heavy rain and when I went into the kitchen water was pouring through my boiler. The water was coming in through the flue outside because my gutters were overflowing. I rang my insurance who said I wasn't covered for the gutter repairs but may be covered for any damage to my boiler.
Basically, the water has poured through and the pilot light has gone out and won't relight, and water was dripping off all the wiring which worried me. I bravely tried to turn it back on once dried out but it won't light and the timer switch is knackered. Will my insurance cover me to get a new boiler or will this one be repaired? A plumber I know said it is that old that it would cost loads to repair and a new one would be a better idea, but obviously I can't afford a new one and don't know what my insurance will say, any ideas?
