    Installing a wood burning stove

    Thanks for your reply Lee. The surround is a smooth stone. I’m not sure exactly what. It feels like concrete! The stove we wanted to put in was quite small. Probably 45cms wide by 50cms high. It’s probably the same size as the current cut out hole in the surround.

The yellow bodied pump I can’t really tell where or what it’s connected to. If seems to be separate from the red pump though and it’s on the opposite side...

    Can’t separate hot water and central heating
