Plumberpro :

Hi , yes you can get lpg convention kits . they cost from 30 pounds. You need to know or have an idea what boiler you are going to get first, then I can search online for a kit . but whatever you do don't buy a second hand boiler , its not worth it , and there may be a safety issue with it . you can get a new Combi for 400. I know its still not cheap but at least you will know its safe

Customer:

hi there I have to buy second hand all I need to know is what ones can be converted then I will know what ones to look for

Plumberpro :

Hi , all boilers have a LPG conversion kit .

Plumberpro :

Personally , I would look for valiant , Worcester , ideal , and potterton .

Plumberpro :

Would you mind rating your answer please, thanks

Customer:

well I have rang some of them and they can not be converted the thing is me and my husband bought a mobile home site it was are dream we wear going to develop it but unfortunately my husband hade a accident while siting a mobile and was killed I need second-hand as he was the breed winner and I do not have the funds to buy new boilers and I can not rent them out with no central heating so I am between a rock and a hard place I just hope you can help thank you

Customer:

Plumberpro :

OK all Worcester Bosch green stars .all ideal logics. All main combi. All pottertons all baxi These I know for sure.

Plumberpro :

Plumberpro :

Customer:

Plumberpro :

Plumberpro :

Customer:

they offered me a 14 year contract that meant each boiler was 7000.each

Plumberpro :

Wow, that's ridiculous. Could you not do it a few at a time

Customer:
