Advice on plumbing / parts for electric water heating system

    Our flat has an electric water heating system (no gas at all). It is like a large kettle. There has been a leak and plumber today said that there are 2 parts to the system and that the heating element have gone in both (one is a back up for the other). They are "very expensive" (price being provided tomorrow). Apparently the elements that are in the type of systems in our flat only last on average 4 years (ours has lasted 8). Does anyone have any idea of the cost involved with replacing 2 of these and of draining down the system to put right a small leak in one of the pipes? Many thanks

    Elements aren't usually expensive.
    The labour can, and is usually costly though.
