    OK I'm getting the impression you think I'm already Gas Safe Registered... as flattering as that is I'm afraid you're 100% wrong. You also seem to think I'm some pre-existing forum member. Once again I can assure you I am not. I am just a naughty DIY'er (you can guess the rest). As for the ACS stuff... pipedreams atm, will prob. never happen. The truth be told I was hoping that the professionals would let me into their little gang if I said I was trying for ACS, it's hard to get any help on this forum!

    Now please do me a favour and accept that I am a layman, and in that regard I have no idea what you're talking about when you use the term 'Residual Head'. It's a grundfos pump, boiler is Baxi Main Eco Elite 30

    also a pound a week for a service??? who you kidding... that's £52 annually?? no chance not even in Bradford

  4. Plenty of decent, polite members of the public get useful, sound advice that saves them money on here. Maybe it's your attitude that is the problem?

    My servicing prices start from £65 but then my customers get a proper service for that not just a poke and go... You get what you pay for with servicing!

    There's a couple of my customers I'd like to poke and go, not sure they'd pay me £65 for the privilege though!

    Just the first one I came across but I'm unaware of a powerflush machine that will work effectively on a drained system? Now Mr Storms....you may enlighten me.

    Well I thought that the Fernox Powerflush first thing you would do is drain the system (using the machine)... then fill it again using the machine

    Not what you said though. You have to remember that forum members need to be treated with the same degree of incompetence that you show.
