    Multimeter recommendations?

    Anything waterproof and in a rubber case, oh and a big display with backlight is handy if you’re approaching 50 a little quicker than you’d like. ive got a basic fluke, cost about £90 maybe 5 years ago.

    Heating engineer cost

    aren’t we just taking the food out of our own mouths here? As a one man outfit I never mention this to my customers, I’d be just sat at home while the big companies make another Gazziliion pounds to pay their fat cat CEO. On the only occasion I did, which was to a friend btw, it was a Worcester...

    C/H pump not working unless HW is switched off

    I thought 3 ports on unvented weren’t allowed, it’s got to be 2 2ports and an auto bypass. it’s to do with the dhw port being open when off that can overheat the tank. you need to get your installer back to change it That’s basics, god knows what else he’s done

    rain water coming into Ideal Combi boiler through flue and causing main circuit board to blow.

    Is the gutter split? I’ve seen water run down the brick wall and into the boiler, also see rose bushes growing round the flue causing water to run inside. if it was a split flue, I mean split enough for a lot of water/condensate to pass from inner to outer, then the burn would be bad...

    Drain Valve Change Without System Drain?

    Can you freeze it? Shut the other rad valve, whip off the rad and freeze the pipe just a little distance away from the valve

    Heating thermostat no wired up with 3 phase. How do I tell which cable?
