    I'm sorry guys but I have brought a stain onto our reputation, I have ... wait! it's difficult for me to say this, I have!.............................................gone to the Plumber forum for advice and asked a question :(... there said it.

    I hope you can all forgive me as this is a difficult time and I am trying to adjust to the fact I needed there advice :oops:.

    If anyone knows of any therapy session or groups that I can get involved with to help me pull through this I would be grateful.

    Cheers.

    Really sorry to hear this, DW. I can't begin to imagine what you're going through right now. My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.

    Agree Steve, must have been a traumatic turn of events to make DW go cap in hand to a Plumber, like you I can't imagine the thoughts going through his mind at the time, think we ought to have few moments to reflect,

    I have been looking into this and have found he has opened his boiler case which is a no-no for a a non gas safe. So he really has dropped us in it. He did the usual "it's ok I'm an electrical engineer didn't touch the gas so it's ok" and was admonished publicly on the forum. I think this needs to be referred to the CPS scheme and JIB. I will be looking into steamrollering his MFT and him doing the march of shame. What compounds this is the fact he has been talking to not just a plumber but a gas safe person or persons unknown.

    Lol - read my reply, the Irony here is I design, built and fit the systems they connect to in my job yet I cannot take a cover off because of a rule that is there to protect the DIY muppets or even stupid people of other trades.... it's stupid you cannot remove what is normally just 2 screws to wire a stat or power to a set of connectors even given you're more qualified to do so than if the plumber does it himself.

    Yep! I have taken the cover off and changed an electrical part like for like with 2 push on spade connectors .. expect my house to blow up anytime soon.

    bear in mind that you can do any gas work in your own house. the gas regs. only apply if you are working for a customer.if it goes bang, then it's only your house goes into the great gig in the sky.

    Tel's reply is a prime example of how to make friends and influence people, unless of course you are on the same wavelength as him, I'm getting there.

    There a hard crowd to nudge which I fully understand but at least when given advice on here we judge every member to the competence they show and their background, you do not need to hold an electrical diploma if we think you are competent to be given a little more advice than we normally would.

    I too ............... have signed up on the plumbers forum ;)........... they can be helpful for basic stuff, but as soon as people start wanting to know how to install boilers they tend to get shot down ......... and quite rightly so........

    Non gsr and over there as it is the nearest related forum to my line of work.

    darkwood, this subject has caused no end of heated arguments over there (no pun intended) :)

    Yep! .. I was wondering how to approach them as I knew it would cause somewhat of a flutter but as tel' does point out, I am not doing paid work on anybody else property and this is my own boiler and property so technically I only could void my insurance if my house blew up because of my actions, again I am changing a fan with 2 wires push fitted onto it, I am not changing or adjusting anything else especially anything non electric.

    Believe there is also another point about the cover being decorative ie does it lift off or do you have to remove screws.

    Cheeky Bar steward, tell them the truth, faulty gas level if fully opened it restricted gas supply back a few degrees solved the problem...

    How's it feel popping over to the darkside again Corbs, if you get confused with the big words I will try help out :)
