Baxi Solo HE

This boiler is effectively identical to the Potterton Promax. A disastrous design in my personal opinion and best replaced at the first convenient opportunity. To find out why, see my damning review of the Potterton Promax here. The boilers are identical in general design differing only in the case design and labeling. 





If you'd like me to attempt to mend your Baxi Solo HE feel free to call me. I'll probably be extremely negative about it and advise you to just buy a new boiler... 

But try me. You never know!!! 

Please read my Promax review page first though.
