I have a Combi Boiler in the house now, 4 years, was in the loft today and
was wondering if I can remove the old boiler tank and all the pipework
that's in the loft? I know the combi works on heating the water straight off
the main supply but don't want to go cutting pipes in the loft that may be
in use. Bathroom is downstairs, no water supplied to anywhere upstairs if
"Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work
The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine."
The old boiler tank would have had 3 pipes. Mains pressure cold water in (to
the ball cock), a feed to the old boiler (the pipe at the bottom) and an
overflow pipe. If the mains cold has been capped (ie the plumbers have not
just tied the ballcock up) then feel free to remove the tank. Lazy bloody
Tell me about it m8, the guy that installed my combi was the biggest p***k
I've ever met, promised me this promised me that, what a tosser, I had to
threaten to take him to court if he didn't provide what he and his advert
said they would, I'll never use him again and when people ask me for a
recommendation he's top of the list for avoiding like the plague.
