Replacing Hot Water Cylinder

Hi,
Can anyone confirm if this nanny state in which we now live have
prevented DIY'ers from replacing their own Vented (Indirect) Hot Water
Cylinder ? Think I read somewhere that you are supposed to inform your
local Building Control or getting a qualified plumber in ?
Ta. Tim.

The only way people will know you or a mate did the job is to take out a full page advert in the local paper, put some adverts on TV and wrap a banner around your house.

Bowlocks - as I understand it Nanny has let us replace the cylinder. It is a replacement, if there is no immersion then no electrical issue, even if there is, it is only a replacement. Get on with it and give Nanny the proverbial!

I doubt that would even get BCO on to him. Frankly they don't want to know (although there may be some places where they haven't enough to do - yeah right). If you wrote a letter to the BCO telling him that you were deliberately flouting the law I suppose they would have to do something about you.

The issue is that all replacement cylinders have to come up to the Part L Standard ... However the chance that the OP will get caught has got to be really small.

In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
It's probably quite difficult to buy one which *doesn't* comply with the part L Standard. (Unless you get it from a scrap dealer!)

Agreed. However there are the installation issues: time and temperature controlled heating. insulation on all hot pipes for at least 1m.
