    distance of flue form soil pipe

    Thanks Tony, I assume by outer you mean the place where the steam exits. I want it to go at least 1m away from the outside wall to avoid the steam going straight up to the bedroom window of the flat above. There is not an issue with manufacturers requirements, we need a bigger flue anyway as it...

    distance of flue form soil pipe

    If you mean who, the answer is someone with a gasafe reg [not me]. He says clearance must be 75mm at any point along the piperun. The regs I linked seem to say thats from the end not the pipe but the regs seem to be unclear/I am not sure hence the post here. Sorry, I am one of those bad...

    distance of flue form soil pipe

    Was looking for regs for taking a flue out through a wall between two soil pipes 40mm from each and 25mm from the soil downpipe but terminating some 1m+ further away. Approved Document J (Combustion appliances and fuel storage systems)...

    Is this Possible?

    Actually, I came on asking for responses on a technical question - "is this possible", see OP for the question. I was wondering whether something else was going on and added a VERY MILD suggestion of a high quote as a reason that's a possible prefixed with: "In support of something else going...

    Is this Possible?

    That's not what I asked. If I was offering a service I would put a price on it. Someone charging 300 per hour but only working 2hrs a week earns 30k. Someone charging 300 per day but working 45 weeks earns 90k. Also if I was telling someone they are offering starvation wages, I would be happy...

    How else do you determine whether any price is reasonable or not? Most folk get 5 [or 15] quotes and compare them. That's not great for an installer either since it means lots of quoting that results in no work for someone. I understand your point on internet price but maybe the solution is...

    Is this Possible?

    LOL. One of the two 30kw Intergas boilers I had installed in that house had a broken fan within 7 months. On the good side the plumbers merchant were called at 11am and an Intergas enngineer replaced it for free by 3pm. Happily I no longer own that house so they're not my...

    Is this Possible?

    So having confirmed I have NO desire to see anyone's family starve, .... Do you have any input either on the bit that was interesting before I whinged about the price. Or an answer to my question about fair hourly rate. C'mon what's the rate inc. well fed families? [AND Yes we have nasty...

    Is this Possible?

    It's possible, I had already told him there were two fans as I had read the install instructions. He replied that he could use the boiler serial no to get the right one. That would be a nice outcome for us since we can get a working boiler by "just" fitting a new fan. Should it be possible...

    Is this Possible?

    The main reason for the the post was whether it's likely that today's boiler repair man is correct. Or it's worth trying again to fix the old Suprima with another boiler repair man. Seems like one vote for, one against so far I'm pretty sure the fan is kaput but really don't know if it would...

    Is this Possible?

    On price, sorry if anyone is offended by my comment. The reason I think 1300 ex VAT for an install/replace is a bit steep is that I've had 3 new boilers fitted [in Holland] in the last couple of years which took around 5 hours max each. The company doing this London job were asking 70 quid an...

    Is this Possible?

    Boiler [potterton suprima 50] started making a noise just like the fan bearings are gone on Thursday and then totally gave up it's struggle to live Friday afternoon [great timing but at least it's less cold than it was]. Therefore it was only today we could get a boiler guy and he diagnosed the...
