Thanks man. I did mention the loss of pressure when it got its checkup but that was once every couple of months. Have been waiting to see witness marks for the leak just to know where it was, for a cleaner repair. Was looking for those marks on the inside of the house!

The plastic pipe goes under the side path and into the ground so can't see if that could be doing the same.

Hi there,

It’s great to see you’re interested in cover with us, however, with all policies we do have a 14/28 exclusion period before you are able to make a claim and you aren’t able to claim for pre-existing issues.

If you get in touch with us at heretohelp@homeserve.com or give us a call on 0800 694 6124 we can certainly go through the options available to you for a one off repair.

Edited by: "BeerDrinker" 17th Oct

I’ve found British Gas engineers hit and (moreso) miss. All they seem to do when it comes to a boiler service is look at their Toughbook Laptop and stick a probe in flue port – if all the readings are correct and its burning fine then that’s it. Our local independent spends at least 45 mins on a service, opening up the combustion chamber and various other metal compartments and is rather vigorous with a large metal handled pipe cleaner – he also half the price of home care.

One of the more unnerving experiences with British Gas was with our open Gas fire – It had a cracked burner, while it burned fine and never set off our C02 alarm it was obviously kaput and was noticeable just by looking at the fire without taking it apart – at this point it was largely decorational anyway and never used. Yet it was serviced by BG, taken apart and cleaned 3 times by them before an engineer finally picked up on the issue on the forth service and condemmed it, the other three hadn’t noticed a burner cracked completely in half.

Someone put the heating on.........this deal is cold

Use these guys and your house will be as chilly as this deal is.....£500 discount isnt a lot really, especially when you see what the "original" price is, no doubt its the quoted "RRP"....love how the OP is defending the deal though, ballsy :-)

There's tons of options out there, but having had a number of quotes for a new boiler recently, how can we really judge if this is a deal or not? Our quotes varied by £900 and we didn't even bother with British Gas, else that would probably have been a lot higher. Most of these "discounts" are usually fake anyway, as they've inflated other prices to compensate, but if some prices were quoted I think we'd all be able to make an informed decision.

Untrustworthy company as soon as your boiler or something else that is expensive fails beyond their liking they blame you and won't repair it. I had my boiler under contract for years with this cowboy firm and the pump failed they claimed I failed to maintain the heating system yet for over 8 years I paid a lot of money for them to look after it.

They are listed as two separate products on the website. If you take the second option you may well not get any cashback.Nevertheless, even without the free service, it seems a good offer and Homeserves' ratings on review sites are similar to British Gas.



Both options were showing with £65 cashback today. I went for the boiler service option as my Worcester boiler definitely needs a service and the cashback tracked straight away. It's showing as payable in 30 weeks, so we'll have to see how it goes.

Was thinking about this but the reviews on quidco aren't very good, in few cases the cashback hasn't been paid. I am not sure about TCB. That puts me off a little bit. Excellent deal if cashback tracks though.

Called them out a few weeks ago and great service.
Re sink tap replacements, he would have replaced mine if I had a new 1 to hand. They do replace single taps themselves (non mixers) as they have stock in their car.
P.S. I don't think the workers know whether you have a fully covered policy or 1 just for leaks etc.

The previous time this offer came up (about a year ago?) I am sure someone did the "start a new contract in name of spouse" trick to keep getting the special offer price

I'm also curious if anyone's taken this out in another name. My renewal came in at 96.48, but they have offered to reduce it to 54£. Very good offer, but not as good as 6£ lol.

The problem with Homeserve is with the tradesmen they use. Some are excellent, but some are truly awful, and you don't know which you're going to get until it's too late.

To be fair, their customer service these days when things go wrong is pretty good if you're insistent, but a dodgy tradesman can do a lot of damage in a short space of time.

I have a totally dysfunctional central heating system thanks to their incompetence (and that includes work by Home Energy Services - which Homeserve own). They've never managed to sort it out after countless visits, and although they've paid compensation it amazes me that so many different people can achieve so little.

This isn't CH cover, of course, but I'd never let Homeserve into the house again.

Had my kitchen floor ripped up buy these, chasing a leak, remember they don't replace/put anything back...

Rip floor up, fix leak, leave...

They came out to repair my boiler pronto when it died completely, ended up replacing bits that didn't need replacing which was better for me. But once they got it started again it would run for 2 minutes and go off. They now termed this an "intermittent fault" which they do not cover!

You really do get what you pay for.

Additional - when you sign up you can instruct them to remove "auto-renew" from your account.

Worth having just for one callout. But be warned they are very unreliable. I had THREE no-shows by the plumber before he came to sort out the problem. Very annoying waiting in all day.

My mum just got her renewal... £186 after three claims (new sink taps provided and fitted, leaky radiator valve fixed, radiator replaced - not strictly covered but I sourced the radiator and they installed it quite happily). Will cancel and take out new policy in my name.

Any homeowner should have this for the trial year --- no brainer vs one callout fee. They'll fix things you wouldn't bother to call a plumber for, and even provide some of the hardware eg taps.)

My policy is due for renewal in 3 weeks and I received a renewal letter from Severn Trent quoting me £130.32.
We made two claims on the policy in the past year but they were both small jobs. Homeserve were excellent on both occasions so definitely want to buy the policy again so I'll just buy again in my wife's name.

I probably pay over the odds with British Gas cover but the quality of trades person over those when I had Homeserve many moons ago is the main reason I've stayed with British Gas.

Also make sure if taking a policy with Homeserve that they will fully repair and reinstate the faulty problem. In some cases they may just cover the "emergency" repair....for example I had a faulty fuse box and the tradesman merely removed offending fuse and taped that section over, stating emergency repair had been done. Still had to pay for proper repair to reinstate that section of fuse box, which had I been with BG would of been done on the call out.

yes they would - I had exactly the same issue as you, called them at 9Am, plumber arrived at 15PM , brand new outside tap. well happy paying 50p a month for this. waiting to see what the quote is for the following year. So yes I can recommend this.

I had a problem a couple of years ago with a leaking waste pipe and they came out and fixed that no problem, was paying a lot more at the time, so for £6 think its worth taking the insurance out again.

In your case, it may well be that the problem is with the main drainage system, rather than your own drains. Maybe worth a call to your local water/sewerage company - it won't cost anything to have it investigated, and there might be a simple answer.



Cheers Newbold. I actually had scottish water out last week to clean out the Toby and never thought to ask them about that. It only happens in the main bathroom, no where else in the house so I thought it must be something in the house. I didn't use the main bathroom much as I have an en suite so might be something to do with that too but was happening too regularly to be the trap constantly drying out. I've actually just moved out and have tenants in now. I told them about it and advised the disinfectant remedy and they haven't said anything more so I'll just leave it be for now. I'm sure they will make much more use of the main bathroom so might not have the issue. That reminds me, the policy is due to expire in March so I may as well phone homeserve now and cancel as doesn't apply to landlord.
