I have had a look at the original installation manual for the boiler, it says my boiler (Vaillant ecotec pro 28) doesn’t have a built in siphon hence any outdoor pipe work should be 32mm min and lagged where exposed. Just my luck!!
I’m glad I asked, I’ll see what the service guy says as I dont like the idea of having fumes coming back into the bathroom. It is something I’d like done in the summer as getting up a ladder with a kettle in gale force winds isnt really a good idea. I ended up with a washing up bowl and a...
My boiler is in the loft and during the Beast from the East cold spell I had the condensate pipe freeze causing it to backup and drip through the upstairs landing ceiling. The bathroom is not far from the boiler above hence I was wondering if it viable to run a new 22mm plastic condensate...
RCDs trip on an imbalance of current in the L and N conductors, usually caused by earth leakage. If there is no fault on the circuit an RCD should not trip.
A MCB can trip or a fuse blow with a large inrush current.
200 ohms is the max for reliability in guidance docs.
The max in the regs 1666 ohms for a 30mA RCD protected socket circuit (50v/0.03A=1666 ohms).
So although the theoretical maximum is above 200 ohms, this should not be exceeded as it is considered unreliable.
