We have a floor mounted oil boiler in an outside well ventilated store in Spain
(1.1m x 1.1m with 1 wall fully louvred) and the 1000ltr oil tank in the adjacent
store 1.1m x 2m again with 1 long wall fully louvred.
The oil boiler has been nothing but trouble, and we're about out of oil, so are
looking to take out both boiler and tank and replace with a gas boiler with a
series of coupled gas bottles, both being in the original rooms as before.
Our Spanish builder and plumber / gas engineer have said that there is a minimum
distance of 5m between the gas bottles and the boiler which seems ridiculous,
especially as there is a 100mm solid wall between the two stores.
Any one else had a similar experience or been given a smaller dimension?
Any reference to legislation I can look up will assist no end?
I keep reading about dimensions of 1.4 - 1.5m which we can easily do but can't
translate enough to get a full understanding The builders want to build a new
store for the bottles which will be both costly and unsightly as it will have to
be on the front of the house.
All advice welcomed and appreciated.
