    hi guys went to commission gas boilers today and the gas pipe from the meter is gastite in a ducting under concrete floor with subfloor. I believe it's one continue length with no joins. The yellow gastite pipe should be protected from uv rises and the fitting should be covered in a plastic coating tape. Is there any more you would advise?

    Were you there to commission the boilers or the complete installation?
    Were they installed by someone else employed by the company you work for?

    Sounds correct gastite doesn't need tape on the joints either

    And fine in outside eg uv but agree with the above

    Not needed but won't harm tracpipe is the one that requires it

    But both require it if too much insulation has been removed

    Not needed only time I would is if it's going in a concrete floor just for expansion etc could get away with pipe insulation as well

    Is the duct ventilated both ends?
    Can you access the compression joints both ends?
    Any other appliances?
    Did the installer know what they were doing? Competent with the pipe etc?
