Newbie

Hi, I have just joined and I am trying to get to grips with the forum, I have recently been directed here from The Four Thirds forum and I am a Newbie so I have two problems their site and yours, trying to wade round the two forums! I will no doubt get there in the end.
So hello everyone.
John.

Re: Newbie

Hi John, nice to see you here. Do we take it from your user name that you're a heating engineer? If so, no doubt busy at the moment!?

Ian

Re: Newbie

Hi, yes I am an heating engineer, but at the moment all I am doing is frozen pipes and bursts, more plumbing than gas-fitting and heating. Thank you for the welcome and I will join in when I get to grips with the site.
Cheers
John.

Re: Newbie

Hi Ash,
sorry that's not a boiler I use, Baxi, Potterton,Main, Ideal, Valliant, and many more combi's use the same flues, every combi boilers main components on the planet are made in Italy. loads of parts are interchangeable, do you have a boiler spares supplier where you are, they may get a collar to suit. It is only the fresh air duct not the flue duct, that's the 50mm one on the inside. Have you tried a local heating engineer, plumber, or gas man near you, we all have loads of bits like that stashed away. If not, can you email me some pictures of the flue, the location, and a full explanation of what you are doing and I will try and help you.

Hope this helps you
John.

Re: Newbie

I do realise that its not too important to have this flange on, but it got broke in a loft conversion and have been advised that it needs to be replaced instead of the tape.
The guys that installed the boiler were muppets and I don't wan't them back in my house, thanks for your help and Ill try to source a flange and fit it myself.
cheers
Ash.

Re: Newbie

I think the one that got broke had ridges and some sort of built in seal, does it need to be air tight? Thanks for your time anyway I appreciate it.

Re: Newbie

Hi Ash, no problem, I think you will need a Flue extension which is a meter length of flue with the inner and outer which has the socket with the ridges and rubber seal already in it on one end, for both the inner and outer.
They are a standard item, costs around 25-00 tops. You need to push up the vertical flue around 100mm disconnect the old flue extension off the boiler and replace with the new one. Put fairy liquid on the rubber seal and the male ends and it just pushes together. Watch you don't push the vertical flue bit out of the roof slate when you push it up, it should just pull down in to the new socket and be OK. When you look at the flue extension it will all become self explanatory. You may need some one to hold the flue whilst you pull it apart and to hold the bit that goes through the roof. Any more info required just ask. Just a thought, some guys put a self tapper through the socket, just take it out before you start
All the best
John.

Re: Newbie

Why can't all customer service be as helpful as this? And I have not even purchased anything from you
Just going off on one a little, my van has been in the garage since christmas eve, the strutt broke on the tailgate, I got a call yesterday that it was ready for collection, ok, went this aft to collect, phoned rental to collect car, loaded up van with all stuff out of rental, there is alot of stuff!, then just looked at the handywork bolt that fixes strut to bodywork loose and coming out.
I was a little cross, their excuse - it was dark when we fitted the new strutt!
NIGHTMARE, AND THIS IS VW
John if my boiler ever packs up then your the man, don't care where ya live
