From scratch. No previous plumbing experience. Thanks to those in this
group - I have been lurking mainly for a while. The FAQ was excellent and I
shall follow it closely for my commissioning.
One question though: I made a bit of a mess cutting the hole for the flue
and hence have a ragged hole that is really untidy and gaps still show
through round the outside of the blanking plate.
Can I use builders foam to plug this gap or does it need to be cement or
other fireproof sealant?
Actually another question as well: The condensate drain pipe should really
go into a drain but where I have located the boiler is below the level of
the household drain (and house damp course).
Can I route the pipe downwards to outside and have it discharge into maybe a
hole dug into the ground? I'm not sure if it is just water that will come
out or if anything more obnoxious will be present.
