    Hello chaps,
    Wondered where you run the condense pipe from a combi if its fitted in a loft? Do you just run it as an overflow ? If so does it drip much.

    Cheers. Col.

    No it doesn't. Ask your fitter, he will know.

    Thanks for your help. My gas fitter who is running up a new gas feed, doing the final connections and commissioning is fishing in Ireland at the moment so I was just after a bit of "friendly" advise so I could get as much done as I could for him. I am a HETAS installer so can cope reasonably well with the wet side. Been to our local merchant to get the pipework and they put me right so thanks anyway.

    Ideally, get it across to the soil stack or internal waste to avoid freezing issues.

    Is there no mobile phone reception in ireland at the moment?

    Surely you can see why people on here get suspicious when questions like this are asked ;)
