Worcester Bosch catastrophic Failure after 7 yrs

A little CBI (the precursor of the well known Ri range, had a serious leak on the right hand side of the heat exchanger due to a 'Weld'  giving way on the upper side of the heat exchanger. Usually these models suffer from pinpoint corrosion on the heat exchanger from the baffle plate. Worcester boilers should last a hell of a lot longer! my ethos is, if you cant get a Viessmann or Vaillant then get a Worcester still holds true.  This boiler should last at least a decade if not more. if it's got 'Ideal' on the cover and its 7yrs old then fully expect a new boiler!!! A new Worcester Ri 24 condensing boiler should last you 12-15yrs.
