    We are in the middle of a power cut at the minute and I'm wondering if running water to make tea, or even flushing the toilet, will put any extra strain on my Ecotec Pro 28 combi boiler?

    Many thanks.

    Yes you can it just will not get hot and yes you can flush the toilet. Use your gas cooker to heat water.

    Brilliant, thank you! I just didn't want to do anything that might damage my boiler.

    Thanks again. :)
