As a qualified gas engineer for domestic, commercial, boats, caravans with over thirty years experience, also a self employed consulting gas engineer to local authoritys etc etc, i would allways advise nobody unqualified touches any gas related product, i have witnessed first hand many times the damage this can do
Blondy....are you trying to tell me and the other readers that the thermocouple has nothing to do with gas ????, whilst i appreaciate no gas runs through it, one end is coupled to the gas valve, i you read the gas and safety in use regulations you will be aware that this piece of equipment is classed as a gas safety device and should only be touched by someone who is suitably qualified
Finally...as for checking for gas leaks ???? are you assuming that Erneboy has a suitable manometer and knows how to use it in order to carry out the correct proceedure for a tightness test.....or that he goes out and purchases some suitable leak detection fluid to check the joints, and has a good knowledge of ventilation requirements??
Sorry for hyjacking your thread Erneboy, i dont want to get into an arguement about this with anyone, just stating the facts...SAFETY FIRST !!
