    Hello Peter
    Do you have the necessary equipment to set the correct pressure on the oil pump?

    Hello Simon, you stole my next post to the OP! As you said get someone in who knows what they are doing. Oil boilers can produce a lot of CO and need to be set up correctly by someone who knows what they are doing.

    Too many idiots think it's only gas that's a problem.

    We hear it all the time. I found today we were competing against a postman for an install of an oil boiler! Luckily the Customer had some sense and we got the job. Frightening really.
