Discuss Boiler condensation pipe into a shared gutter down pipe in the Plumbing Forum | Plumbing Advice area at PlumbersForums.net
As long as the installer doesn't do something so daft as to push the condensate pipe right through the boss connection and into the bore of the downpipe it'll not make blockages any more likely.secondly with the condensation pipe penetrating the down pipe will it be more prone to blocking
Agree. The plot thickens. The first post suggested the neighbour was merely running a pipe into his or her own gutter that discharges into the OP's downpipe, but this does not agree with what is said in subsequent posts.I would like to see how they have joined the condensate pipe into the downpipe. You being concerned about possible blockages makes me think they have just drilled a hole in the side of the downpipe and pushed it into the hole actually penetrating the downpipe and restricting the bore of the pipe. It should be fitted into a suitable fitting designed to take the condensate pipe without restricting the downpipe. Any chance of a picture. It needs to be done right as gas safe are very strict on condensate runs and how they are terminated.
