    Hello,

    I have a tricky urgent situation where I need to install a boiler with a horizontal flue run which with maze of angles would total to about 15-16m. The problem is that there isn't enough ceiling height for a normal boiler that requires a 50mm/1m drop. Therefore, I'm urgently looking for a quality boiler where the manufacturer will guarantee the boiler with a lower drop / degree of around 25mm/1m drop max. The only one that might fit the bill ate the Kestons, but everyone know the issue with these.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks :!:

  5. Is there really not an option to relocate the boiler or vertical flue?

    Have you considered the cost of 16m of flue and that it will need to remain accessible for inspection though put its length

    u would have to increase to 75mm flue, plus extra condensate outlets to cope whith condensate. but its possible if you have no choice of location.

    Boiler with a 15m flue run.
    Insanity. Move the boiler and adjust the piping.
