My potterton primaF 50 flue pipe (horizontal 1 metre internal tube) has corroded, together with the terminal guard fins.
The flue on my set up is fitted with a 90 degree flue bend kit,

Starting from top of boiler 200mm vertical, 90 degree (going right facing boiler) bend kit (part no. 225600) then 1 metre horizontal pipe to outside with terminal.

My question being is the horizontal pipe standard twin pipe flue or is this not standard as it fits into the bend kit.

It would be easy to replace as it has three self tappers easily accessible and I am quite happy to replace like with like. It's just if any one is ok about giving a non corgi a bit of advice. :)

Brilliant, thanks for that ollski.

I could slide the new tube in from the outside of the building, do you therefore have to take the flue off from the inside of the building to screw in the self tappers.

no as ollski says, from outside remove the screws and slide off old terminal, new one slots on with new screws and thats it.

might be a bit sticky to get the old one off.

End result,

Potterton part No. 5106693

'Slipped in' like a dream. Boiler flames now not jumping off the burner. Thanks again to those that help the non corgi. Thank goodness the nanny state hasn't got to everyone, yet. :eek:
