    I lost one myself once but instead of doing whatever's happened there I called National Grid out and within 15 minutes they'd dropped a handful off for me. Was miles from any merchants so it worked out nicely.

    Before you call it a sink, check it's not a basin.

    Ask them to tell you, that's what they're there for.

    Ramjadav. You've asked the same question in multiple threads. This is trolling. Don't do it.

    Consider yourself warned.

    And you'll get your questions answered if and when you go on a real ACS course. Not a mickey mouse one that is fleecing you.

    It always amazes me the ignorance of certain people. It seems they don't appreciate just how much hard work, time and training goes into making a good gas engineer. They think if a bloke in a van can do it then so can I! You can bet those same people wouldn't represent themselves in court instead of paying for a solicitor when they caused a gas incident. Or give themselves medical attention instead of going to a professional when they hurt themselves in that incident.

    Peoples attitudes need to change towards us blokes in vans. They probably won't though.

    "You people don't know what safety is!" Ha Ha

    Hmm! A policeman was asked if it was safe to drive along a route at 60mph he replied "I am not telling you, your not a policeman!" ridicules, but perhaps an attitude some gas fitters seem to be getting. It is sufficient to give a warning about the law that tells of the need to use a registered gas installer for gas work not to withhold information. One can read or get information about how to use a gun, it does not mean you go about shooting people. A doctor will tell you what they propose to do in an operation, it does not mean you get the knife out and have a go yourself. So with holding information is just silly. After a warning it is up to the person to be responsible themselves. This is supposedly a help forum not a secret society, how can you help people if you tell them nothing? The information is intended to help people decide in a more balanced way as to what may be wrong with their gas system not for them to attempt to fix it themselves. Nearly all the big sheds give quite detailed information sheets after first warning people. The Copper Association gives professional information. What is wrong with that? It is not doing people out of work at all. Not to give information may in fact encourage people to have a go themselves on the basis that it looks easy. The point about using professionals is about right, but how will they know there is more to gas fitting if you do not tell them? Anyway most people I feel sure would use more professionals for many things, what stops them now is cost probably, except where they are forced too use them. As a young man in the 60's contractors where used extensively by many people for all kinds of things painting and decorating their homes and so on. It was the rising wage bills and subsequent job price increases that stopped them using contractors to the extent they once did. Lets also be honest many TV programs give away information all the time promoted by the big sheds. You can go into a shed and buy a gas boiler and fittings if you want too. It is the law that stops people fitting them for a living not information. It is probably information that makes them have second thoughts about fitting when they learn how complicated and dangerous it can be. Lets be honest you can kill with a car they are dangerous but nobody stops you buying them, it is up to you to drive properly even after a test that allows you to do so.

    What you fail to take into account is that we are now in a far more litigeously minded society than we were 15, 20, 30 years ago. We are also in the middle of one of the worst depressions in early 40 years so people are more inclined to come on here to save a few quid.

    YOU, meanwhile, go out and spend a couple of grand getting yourself trained to install, maintain and repair gas boilers.

    Joe has a problem with his boiler, you know exactly what it is and tell him so. Joe is an engineer and thinks to himself "It's only a fan, how hard can it be?"

    Joe and his family don't wake up the next morning. During the investigation into the CO poisoning case the HSE discover a print out of the UKPF page where you said "It's the fan mate."

    There would be the possibilty that UKPF Admins and Mods as the forum management would be held culpable for allowing said info to be given. A remote possibility but one I'm not prepared to put to the test. Not only that I wouldn't want ANY fatalities on my conscience.

    So not only have you been complicit in a death but you've managed to get the forum closed because Dan would have his hand forced by legal actions. You would also be responsible for another gsr, as equally trained and qualified, to be forced into the position of signing on because he cannot get work because we're telling Joe how to do everything.

    The car analogy doesn't wash. You go through a period of training and practising under supervision. You are then rigorously tested. You are only permitted to legally go it alone if you pass those tests and adhere to the Highway Code. Failure to comply results in heavy penalties.

    Whereas with the Gas Industry you go through a period of training and practising under supervision. You are then rigorously tested. You are only permitted to legally go it alone if you pass those tests and adhere to the GIUSR's. Failure to comply results in heavy penalties.

    So no. The UKPF and it's members won't be offering any advice other than get a competent person in!
