    Hello everyone,
    I know nothing about boiler and there regulations but I’ve got what appears to be a simple job that I can’t seem to get done.
    I have a potterton promax HE boiler and the flue comes straight out of the top and angles 90 degrees thru my wall and vents outside into my garden. I’m looking at having a garden veranda installed and currently the flue is under where the veranda will be installed and venting into the veranda, been told that’s a big No no. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to install a 90 degree angle outside in my garden so the flue can be taken up and thru the veranda roof? I’m having a nightmare with this and currently can’t have the work done. Any help would be very greatfull

    If the veranda has open sides look at a plume management kit.

    Yes it does have open sides, plume management kit sorry I don’t even know what that is. Is it something that can be universally fitted?
