    Hi. Anyone know why I have constant dripping from the outside pipe. Been like this for a while now.
    It’s like a curve shape.

    Thanks

    Combo boiler is in the loft.

    My opinion for what its worth you have to give the op something or we come across as arrogant and unhelpful, ruels still apply though, boilers with a casing that needs to be fitted and are part of the combustion, our posters may not be aware of this so thats why we treat them all the same and advise not to remove the casing and contact a GSI .

    Technically there should be an inside case also on that boiler if I remember correctly. However the PRV is a safety device and should not be messed with by somebody not qualified to do so. I have no idea why people come on here and ask for professional advise and then when it’s not what they expect they ignore all responses as if they hadn’t asked in the first place. This website should have a function to instantly delete posts from people with no common sense, not just lock the posts.

    Edit due to spelling mistake
