    Compression fittings.

    You said 'any metal to metal joint needs a joint paste' so, no it doesn't. In your big headed opinion it does but if it doesn't leak then happy days, if it does leak then do something about it. Your X amount of years in the trade obviously doesn't make you the expert you think it does, get...

    Compression fittings.

    Eh? Thats funny, on all the back boilers I service over the years with a union connection to the gas valve, never once have I seen one with paste on the union joint, and they are obviously gas tight. :roll:

    Dear Admin

    I also get a lot of 'repeat business' and it has nothing to do with not doing the job right the first time or getting it wrong, quite the opposite. If the customer is pleased with our work then they keep our number and when they need some more gas / plumbing work doing they give us a call...

    Pipe freezing spray

    You can lose a hell of a lot of water by cutting into live heating pipes, if you live on a farm with old stone floors then go for it but if you have carpets then I would be using a bung kit if its open vent. Or failing that just drain it down, only take a few minutes, save a lot of mess...

    PTFE on compression fittings?

    Talking about olives, a lot of the brass ones are total shyte, If you fit a worcester gas boiler and try and make the olive joint where your 22's go into the boiler, the olives do not grip to the pipe, doesnt matter what size wrench you use..! So I always chuck away the crap brass olives and...

    Yep it's a bit of an art making fudge and its depends what consistency you want it as to how much you heat it. Generally the more you heat it the harder it gets as it starts to turn to toffee. I tried a thermometer but couldn't get on with it so I use the test where you drop a bit of the mixture...

    How to open Baxi Fire front?

    C5, you pull off the brown access panel at the bottom, there will be a screw in each corner holding the firefront to the fire, remove these and pull the fire control knob off from the top. The firefront should then lift off, but beware if you have any little un's running around, that area will...

    the combi boiler explodes, and the plasterer dies

    Worcester Ri Mi's do state that 'generally a bypass is not nesessary on a Y plan system as one of the ports is open to flow'. Just some common sense required I think. :) Chris
