    Does anyone know if the typical DIY sheds will have these in stock?

    Searched for it and can't find it on any of the usual suspects

    What is that?

    Do you mean a ½" female iron?

    Looks like a 1/2" extension. You can get them in any plumbers merchants. They come in different lengths as well

    Great, thanks. It is to extend a pipe without using a soldered fitting (for looks)

    I was hoping to get one tomorrow from somewhere

    I wish all my work was heating but someone has to do it. That sort of stuff is generally my bread and butter.

    If you can stay busy all week just doing heating work why would you change a tap even if you were asked.

    Also Dan, sorry for stealing your thread coopersim,

    I might have a job coming up in St Johns Wood which will require multiple zones and possibly a low loss header. I have no problem with multiple zones but haven't any experience on installing LLH's. I know the theory etc. just not sizing and whatever else it entails. Would you be interested in working something mutually beneficial out. It's not a dead cert yet. I know you work in the area so immediately thought of you.

    It's what the CC is for dude...

    Happy to help and all, but start a thread in the CC and I'm sure you'll get the support you need :D.

    Have you looked at the spreadsheet in the design spec section of the CCR?

    Should see you right ;). Steel and a couple of others helped put it together.
