Hi, advice needed please.
Have a nasty 70s upright gas fire in my living room. Thin gas pipe leading
to it is above the floorboards and easily accessible for capping off and
removal of the fire.
My builder says he can do it, and will shut off the gas main which is on the
pipe by the meter in my hall cupboard. Not sure if he's CORGI or not.
Basically, is this a simple job and can much go wrong if he shuts off the
gas, tests it is off, then blanks off the pipe? (I wonder about air getting
into system, and recall warnings not to turn gas on after it has been off
Advice, tips and instructions please. Thanks in advance.
