I am considering moving the hot water cistern which is heated by immersion
heater, oil fired boiler or Raeburn multi fuel fire with back boiler,
situated adjacent to the cistern cupboard in another room. The Raeburn fire
would be removed permanently.The idea is to make more room in a bungalow.
The cistern would go up into the loft and ideally moved back into the roof
space, by a few metres, to make more room in a bungalow. I fear that this
would be beyond my DIY skills?
Could anybody give me a rough estimate as to what would likely to be charged
by a plumber in Lincolnshire?
A similar amount to the amount paid for a piece of string be it in
Lincolnshire or elsewhere. Sorry to be so blunt but without seeing 'the
job' how can anybody quote/estimate or give you an 'idea'. Get a couple (or
3) plimbers to give you a quote and take your choice.
How old is the hot water tank? They tend to corrode and weaken around the
hot water inlet and outlet pipes, in which case you may need to have a new
tank. Are the ceiling joists which will support the tank near a load bearing
wall? If not, consideration will need to be given to strengthening the
joists to support a tank full of water. You haven't mentioned if there are
radiators and a CH pump or not. As a non-plumber this sounds to me like a
potentially a major undertaking and could easily cost the best part of 1,000
