    Oil tank - distance from building using fire protection?

    I believe the fire resistant tanks are good if you get the local building inspector to sign it off. Oftec technicians can not sign them off as the tanks do not have oftec fire resistant approval. It may be the case that not all labc's approve of these tanks either so it's a good idea to ask them...

    Air heat pump siting

    Many thanks. Would it be better to run the pipes underground or surface. Just thinking u.g. would keep wind and weather off.

All the insulation is top spec and the company supplying the pump and under floor heating is happy that it will work well. They sent me on a course (i'm usually oil) and feel ok to...

    recommendation for OIL-fired condensing boiler?

    AFIK there isn't a modulating oil boiler available. I agree with Delta T2 about pipework arrangements but would usually fit Grant boilers given the choice, although Firebirds heat only offerings seem ok. Stix.

    Trianco 70/90 - any advice gratefully received.

    Undoing the 4 allen bolts to reveal the filter is ok. If you've undone the 3 allen bolts under the filter where the 1 pipe washer is the pump will be scrap because they cannot be rebuilt by hand properly. Needs factory machine assembly. Get someone to fit a new pump and set it up properly. Stix.

    Problems with Trianco boiler ( boilerhouse) 16yr boiler

    When the new pump was fitted check with your guy that the bypass screw was screwed in. This is a small grub screw like thing which needs fitting in the return port of the pump when using a tiger loop. I did go to one once which was supposed to have had this done but on inspection the screw was...

    Control box has gone, possibly along with the ebi or solenoid. Put new box on first ,if lockout occurs pull the burner out and look at the nozzle. If oily replace ebi. If dry check continuity of solenoid and replace if there is none. Stix.

    Can you check if the is supplying voltage to the coil. Run the burner through to lockout while testing. If 240v present the problem is with the coil. If not its the box. If you don't have a non contact type voltage stick then with the power turned off cut the coil cable in two and piece...

    Might not need to change 1 for ages, then 2 or 3 three at once (like waiting for a bus). Just when they are goosed. Most show no visible sign of fault but can still give intermittent lockout. Stix.
