    Hi guys,

    Some advice required please. We're currently renovating the home and we're changing the kitchen into a lounge.

    We're planning to move the boiler next to the gas meter in the downstairs toilet.
    Picture is here: https://imgur.com/a/E0yjEkY

    Our gas supplier has said they can't move the gas meter down a meter because the white pipe on the right of the picture is Cadent's. I called Cadent up and they are quoting £1k (subject to a site visit survey).

    Before forking out on this huge cost, I want to make sure all options have been explored.

    1) Is it possible to have the boiler underneath the gas meter?
    2) Can the meter be moved down with a longer anaconda?

    Thanks for your help!

    if you have the clearances in the space under the meter then yes there is no rule about how close a boiler can be to a gas meter
    yes the inlet can be altered with a mixture of copper and anacoda to fit meter lower

    Gas boiler and control installs in bathrooms and toilets are covered by different zoning regulations, you may or may not be able to install the boiler in there, or it may be subject to additional measures
