Hi all
Have recently had to service unvented cylinders and came across a few minor problems, like tundish over 600mm away from PRV etc.
How do I categorise these as I don’t think I could ncs them as in gas work.
Plumed them in but first time inspecting.
Thank you
Huw

Document it. I found that only people renting out were too bothered and wanting things rectifying.

Thanks guys. So I don’t have to put down anything on the paperwork except to document it.
I thought I might have to put down, not to current water regs or something like that.
Thanks again

God forbid , “ not to current water regs “ lol
Me and a mate have serviced 24 direct unventeds today admittedly all in one development, if I listed all the little faults ( namely tundish D1D2 etc etc ) I would be writing until the early hours .

It is 600mm from the T&P not so bad if the D1 from the Pressure Relief is a bit longer.
I list and say that it doesn't comply the Building Reg's G3 & MI's.

Hi all
Just to say thanks for all your help. Being a gas fitter for 35 years, I hope I can contribute to this forum as well.

I never understood the reason for the 600mm measurement
