    I think they should contact the gas supplier and have a 63mm PE service run to the boiler position and the last 2m of copper pipe to the boiler run in 35mm just to be on the safe side.
    Feudal Britain needs land reform. 70% of the land is "owned" by 1 % of the population and at least 50% is unregistered (inherited by landed gentry). Thats why your slave box costs so much..

    your first post was quite good up to a point then you post something like this, why ?

    Well ok perhaps a little flippant although of course it would work. But i would make the point that due to the widespread installation of combis,many of which have been mis-sold,there are now many areas where there is inadequate gas infrastructure to power them all and no one is fronting up the money to install newer bigger PE mains.

    this is true & in fact it's gets worse than that, down here they are replacing all the old mains & suppling every house with 20mm pe as they are using the old supply pipes as a sleeve, now this is where it gets worrying as i found out, they are saying although not officially as yet that this is only suitable to feed a boiler upto 30 kw so anything above that will req a new larger supply pipe, so where now i ask you does this leave us ?

  • Worcester will not honour your warranty for 5 minutes let alone 5 years unless their instructions are followed to the letter.

    Manufacturers instructions clearly state 22mm gas supply pipe size.

    Manufacturers instructions = bible.

    Your fitter needs to change the supply pipe. i would personally have someone check the rest of his work and his commissioning process and results too. Gas Safe will be happy to help you with this.
