Basically I know very little re gas installation ..
but recently my wife has been given a set of gas curling tongues ..
question is .. do they have to be corgi installed ? ..
And where does one mount the flue ? ..
thoughts please ..
Yes, those gas cartridges they usually use are so expensive.
So get a length of rubber pipe and connect it to your mains gas, thus saving
maybe up to 1p/session!
All this Corgi stuff is overkill. When I were a lad up North and mains gas
was hydrogen we used to fill large bin bags with it from the old wall
mounted outlets for lighting. Tie a rag to the bottom, set light to rag and
let it float off over the estate....
If you wanted a 2nd hand gas cooker installing in your council flat you got
a mate who had a woodwork O Level to connect it up for a pint. So what if
some of them exploded and took out the block, gave the residents who
survived something to talk about other than their war experiences .... :-)
DO NOT i repeat DO NOT attempt to install this gas appliance yourself.
You MUST be GORGI registered. It is not a DIY task and you will be
breaking the law. It says so on a web page somewhere. bandq.co.uk?
It is not worth the risk for the sake of curly hair. I am speaking
from no experience what so ever but have heard from somewhere that it
is the case.
Are the tongs big enough to put a Gas Safety Certificate on?
<i>you will be
breaking the law</i>
I understanbd from a CORGI bloke that legally you don't have to
be CORGI registered for DIY gas work, only if you do it for
reward (finacial or otherwise).
You do have to be "competent" however, and quite what that means
that will be decided by the court if you blast/suffocate/poison
yourself or someone else. The fact that you did
blast/suffocate/poison yourself or someone else will probably go
a long way to proving you aren't competent!
As for the gas curlers, the question may have been tongues in
cheek. If it wasn't, my advice would be to be very careful, or it
could be a case of hair today, gone tomorrow.
