    Default Oil Boiler Question

    Hello all

    A 'plumber' had attached our oil burner after a service to the boiler housing using fire cement... is this acceptable or is this a disaster. If the latter what's the best way to rectify?

    im just thinking back and something is telling me that shouldn't have been done... any advice would be a huge help!

    thanks
