Having been dissuaded from buying a flueless gas fire by this NG, I had
the Gas Safe fitter call and inspect the room. Due to the garage
immediately behind the sitting room wall the fitting of a balanced flue
might be difficult. He suggested a "turbo" gas fire that converts the
burnt gases to water which are discharged via a small diameter pipe
through the wall into the garden.
Any horror stories or recommendations for this type of fire anyone?
He spoke with a certain what-is-it in his voice, and I
could see that, if not actually disgruntled, he was far
and model of what he is suggesting we can work out what it really does.
Some fires will let you have a longish balanced flue (at a cost of
course), a google for long flue gas fire popped up quite a few results,
this was the first (no connection or recommendation) and they claim 4m
is possible for their offering:

That sounds like the condensate from a condensing unit. It's water, but
as the carbon dioxide level in the gas is pretty high it ends up as
carbonic acid. The limestone would neutralise it. For a while...
You still end up with lots of warm CO2 and N2 to deal with.
