    At least with MENSA you get a grading to compare with others, not just a Pass.

    If you want to buy something, I mainly use pair of Bahco pump pliers and a small yellow and black adjustable. Use them on pretty much every job. Every plumber also has a r`berger superfire too.

    Ive been told by the staff that once I have my cert in my hand, I can then ring/email Gas Safe, pay the £20 and become registered. I hope its that simple!

    GSR? Want gas safety or boiler repair advice? We will check out that you're genuine via the gas safe website, so please dont be offended when we ask for your details. DIYers, odd job people and have a go heroes need not apply.

    Can't remember if it's 20 or 500 mbar at the cooker. If I didn't have the same problem I'd think it was a windup.
