    If you are going to use the quote function, at least use it properly.


    Who says they are better? Your insurers?

    Tibbot, who knows mate. I am not Intergas. They might argue that you have to open the wall out more so that the joint is visible, or use the stand off frame.

    Or on the last one I did. We had to mount the boiler on a 12mm sheet of ply which brought the joint out flush with the wall.


    Besides, why would it be more naughty?

    I have asked repeatedly very simple questions for a person in Geoff's position yet is obfuscates and evades.

    It's naughty because like you say about CET, they have no approval to do so. It's an afterthought borne out of the fact that someone ****** up when designing the F/R connections in the path of the standard flue route.

    My point is, by the high standards you set, you should refuse to deal with them too.

    The OV boiler is a UK only product. for it to be OV the pipes have to come out of the top.

    I can't think of an install where i have used the offset flue with the boiler not sitting off the wall for one reason or another.

    Besides.... how many manufacturer's have telescopic flues - by your argument they all need attention too..... imagine all those Suprima's that came with one as standard ;).

    THe joy of TB008 is that it has been revised many times. I will look again, but I am sure there is allowance "engineering judgement" and alternative testing methods. The Mighty Gash has several convenient points to test for vitiation.

    As does Hepatitis ;). Although I am sure it is a beautiful country. Hope your BIL is going to be OK.



    Would still like some answers to my basic questions asked earlier this evening.

    Telescopic is not deemed as a flue joint for the purposes of the new rules. The offset flue join is.

    I don't believe someone of your standing would try to explain it other than as a design **** up.

    That reads like a euphemism for bending the rules. Why is that OK for covering up for Intergas' non-approved application but not for CET's?

    All has nothing to do with manufacturer's declarations of conformity which Geoff is skirting - poorly.

    But then he and I have been there before haven't we? ;).


    He can test all he likes, but will he declare conformity?

    Repeatedly he says his replaced components are better... but who says?

    And will they say in what environment they are better?

    This comes down to manufacturer design defect, it should fail safe, and ionisation flame sensing goes a long way in this being the case, HOWEVER, as bkue van man says in the next thread - -Profiles have a failure mode which brings on both gas valves without the spark

    I also added IIRC. Meaning I couldn't be 100%^.

    Tibbot - just read edition 3 of TB008 - no mention of telescopic flues being exempt ;).

    BTW - Raden - my new van is Midnight Pearl. ;).

    You still haven't answered my questions from earlier this evening; which should cover most issues raised in this thread besides alleged poor customer service.
