    I've had a look through the previous Tiger loop queries but can't find anything that addresses this.

    By coincidence one of the search finds was a guy doing the same as me - that is replacing an external Camray oil boiler with Grants equivalent, but his question was different.

    My problem is that Grants instruction book says that the Tiger loop must be mounted at the same level or above the burner - and Grant's technical help says the same as that is what the manufacturer, Anglo Nordic says. But go to Anglo Nordic's website and the installation instruction says "as close as is practical", and that is how mine has been for 25+ years in a box, along with the filter and fire lockout, immediately below the boiler casing. And it has always worked !!

    Can anyone comment please.

    Thanks
    Rob

    I have seen many that are well below the burner operating without any problem.

    I guess you have a wall mounted boiler.

    Buy a Hounsfield instead - a superior boiler at a cheaper price with a longer warranty, and no Tigerloop required

    Thanks for getting back Terry

    Oops - I should have said that it is an external wall hung.

    I'm now told by the guy who will commission it for me that this is an OFTEC/BSI requirement, so I have no option, but the nett result cannot ever be as tidy and out of visual impact as the neat box I currently have - grrrr!
