    I'm getting my boiler replaced, had a few quotes but got mixed opinions on whether the following is allowed

    My boiler will be going on the end wall of the kitchen which is the house end wall. Rather than put the drain outside (cold issues and its a walkway) I would prefer to keep it internal as much as possible.
    Could I run the drain down the side of the wall and then along behind/below a slot in cooker. The cooker is a slot in one approx 30cm above the floor

    Some said that your now allowed to run plastic pipe near the cooker at all where as other said it woud be fine as long as its run below the line of the cooker.

    Is it safe to run plastic below the line of the cooker?

    I dont understand what you mean by slot in cooker. It sounds like an oven which goes under a work surface.

    As far as I know there are no regulations relating to water/drainage pipes close to cookers.

    I hope that you have had Kevinthegas from this forum quote for you as he does a good job and at a reasonable price.

    I think tony means kevindgas, there is no problem running the plastic pipes in the space beneath the oven, if it gets hot enough to melt plastic there is something seriously wrong. :idea:
