    But here's where what your doing is wrong!

    But you have done the training, pay your registration, do the paperwork, pay insurance and have the knowledge to do your job in the gas industry. You are making the problem of unregistered installers worse, because £60 an install is cheap to get your job signed off. What's the point of being registered??
    I'm hoping it's just a wind up merchant. You'd hope that nobody had that blatant disregard for the rules that they'd be bragging about it.

    Getting close to that now. This guy, with his blatant disregard for the rules is beginning to irritate me.

    You won’t be able to check the whole installation without ripping the gas pipework off the wall!!!

    Please tell me this, you have a nice house, pretty wife and pretty kids… Are you saying you let some mug into your house to install a gas boiler and then some other mug to sing it off!? YES or NO?

    Kind of academic now Alex. Unfortunately we don't have enough details to report him to GSR to investigate. Neither can we be seen to encourage him, by association or otherwise.

    His account, after a very brief discussion in the Mod Cave, has been terminated.

    Well you make a fair point there but theirs a difference, Im Not GSR but ive installed 30-40 boilers working under my old boss, but the difference is, i was taught how to install boilers and gas pipework by a professional and at the same time i was learning it all in college as well, also a trainee can only install gas appliances if there GSR person is standing behind them and checking all of the work they carry out
