A local plumber fitted a new Worcester Bosch condensing boiler about 4 years ago.
He fitted the flue as shown in the picture.
I recently removed the basket guard to replace it as it had gone rusty. (Why aren't they all made of stainless steel?)
Should the flue outlet be pointing up in the air?
Will rainwater go inside and cause problems?
Should I turn it so it is angled downwards?
Thanks for any replies.

Yes that's fine.

The deflector just angles the plume up and away to stop it being a nuisance.

Any rainwater will just drain through the boiler and out of the condensate drain.

Terminal guard should be plastic coated type on a condensing boiler.

Don't forget to use brass or stainless screws :wink:
