    in the void . with a 75mm hole in the back panel. i’ve never heard of anyone with a rising main inside the unit.
    also drain valves here are pointless. just open a tap to let what’s above out, if you need to ,and fit isolators on your hot and colds to service the taps.

    there’s no need for a strop because i can do your job but you can’t do mine.
    it’s just my opinion , and clearly true, as i hit a nervE.

    A drain off valve at the main stopcock/ballvalve (which is being proposed) is a requirement of the water regulations.

    Made a start on this yesterday...
    I soldered some elbows onto these pipes to bring them out and eventually through the base of the unit.

    The joints to the existing pipes were the most difficult. I cleaned and fluxed them. There was some water in them which I tried to reduce as best as I could but I couldn’t see a way of draining this entirely.

    My solder wasn’t taking to it. Eventually manage to do it. Any advice on what was happening and how I should deal with such a situation in the future?
