    It's easy keep changing parts on the boiler until it works! Any fully trained 16 year old can do that. :)

    You have forgotten about IronNaz, who will singlehandedly solve all the UK boiler problems as well as installations at a fraction of your rip-off and inept prices

    Not THE Iron Naz? Not Coventry's one and only BESPOKE plumber who will give YOU what YOU want? 7 Rads all on 15mm... IRON NAZ can do it. Just a case of 'balancing' it up eh?

    Not THE Ironnaz who wonders why a flow to a rad can be warm, yet the return be cold because 'all the other ones work'?

    NOT Ironnaz who wraps every olive with 12 turns of PTFE - becuase his college tutor 'said' it was 'best practice?

    Why bother with 15 when you can stick a reducer to 8 at the boiler and take it in plastic from there - ideally a 1-pipe system.

    A 1 pipe system you kill his remaining brain cells off. It takes me half a day to balance a 1 pipe now as I see so few of them. :oops:

    Never fear, Naz is near. 8mm will do it just fine. To avoid gas (although Naz is now a master, grasshopper), just stick the two tails into a kettle with one of those constantly-hot switches, connected to a plug-in timer. Simples, gravity will do the rest, but remember hot top, cold bottom, wax on, wax off ;)

    dont name the centre you went to but what was their certification body, (bpec, logic, Niceic, etc) the bpec gas foundation has a minimum entry age of 21
