Oh I really don't think so. Agile might know a lot about diagnosing gas boiler faults, but on other subjects he merely pretends to know things, and IMO being a charlatan is worse than being an idiot.

He's frequently judgmental of novice posters, jumps to irrelevant and irreverent conclusions about their personal circumstances and finances, and is incapable of answering a direct question.

I am in working on a flat development consisting of 8 no. flats. I am not an expert on this, my question is regarding the meters for gas and water. How is this normally done for a block of flats?

Any thoughts / advice would be appreciated.

But you are constantly asking questions which are very basic questions for anyone who is responsible for designing plumbing and heating systems.

I am surprised that you have not already learnt all you need to know from this forum already.

Yes, and now I have a better knowledge of this.... what is your problem?
I am not responsible for designing plumbing & heating systems, I just want to learn more, why does this bug you so much?

Just refer back to what bengasman wrote... it says it all.
Ahhh Tony...... just what IS perfection like?

I am not responsible for sizing the gas meters or other items which requires specialist knowledge (although for some reason you seem to know what exactly I do), I am simply curious as how these things work so I can understand what needs to be done

I really don't see a problem giving a guide on this. - except when the "experts" get it wrong :oops: !
I sometimes ask questions on the forums about tiling, electrics or whatever and don't expect to be told "employ a tiler, sparky..."

Stuharv is hardly going to be piping up a load of U25s!

Surely it would be easier to inform your gas supplier of the gas loadings, they will then tell you what meter will be required and if the existing supply is up to it and more importantly how much it will cost, you will not be able to have this work done by anyone else but the gas supplier.

Thats dificult to believe when many of your 209 postings start like this one:-

Just after some general advice on hot water storage. I have a job at the moment where there is a large extension to a small cafe building, the HW demand will be approx:

Staff WC room (1 whb)
Male toilets (5 whb’s)
Female toilets (5 whb’s)
DIs. toilets (2 whb’s)
Pot wash area (couple of sinks)
Kitchen and cooking area (sinks, dishwasher/s)

Thanks

That information has to be on the application form

Tony, we know from your past 'postings' www.diynot.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=816166#816166 that I am not the only one that you tend to annoy with your comments.

Keeping installing them combi’s Tony!!!!!

Good link to that thread. A cost effective way of getting around an expensive gas main and meter install, to install a large thermal store and store energy in off-demand periods. A nice explanation on power and energy there too, which is correct.

Sturharv, did to fit a large thermal store, as you said in that thread?
