    Condensate pipe

    Condensate pipe 20th May 19 at 4:08 AM
    The condensate pipe here is leaking, don't know for how long.
    About a 5 metre run to an inside drain and at a shallow angle and also thru two walls.
    The leak is near the end of the run a difficult to get to and will probably mean removing a couple of kitchen cabinets.
    My question is .....can I cut the pipe near the boiler and temporally drain into a container, whilst I sort it and whether I need to bring in a plumber.

    Thank you, Cardew, think it was bodged on install because of difficult access and a 4" drop on 5 metres is not as per the manual. I feel a claim coming on.
