    I had a corgi registered gas man round today to change the 3 way valve today i described the problem on the phone and told me the problem.He fixed it and off he left, i sat down for a while and thought about the job he had done. And wondered if he should have done a tightness test at the meter do you think he should have done a test.

    Why would he do that to change a non-gas part.
     
  4. Not really as he was not working on the gas side of the system, if we have to change a 3 port , pump etc we tick the "non gas work" box on our work sheet.

    If you asked him to check the the gas supply, a test does not take long.
    but the concequences of a gas leak can be expensive

    Can you smell gas?
    Trasco wil do a free check within 1 hour

    Done a service last fri on floor gas boiler (open flued potterton kingfisher) made air vent larger for room ventilation, supplied co alarm. Customer complained that she has smelt gas in property for long while transco attended 5 years ago and found no faults, tested that day and found 3mb drop over 3 mins, capped meter supply.

    returned mon found gas leak on outlet to meter, gas leak underfloor in iron pipework, re-run new supply to boiler in 22mm pipe, left dfe fire disconected due to 5 inch bbu ali terminal pot fitted (should be at least 7 inch approved terminal) and no 100cm air vent fitted.
