    Look thanks all for this I didn't mean to cause rows.

    My only intention from walking away is to show my employer letting agent/landlord that I am not prepared to carry out substandard work not to regulations. I agree that they may well get it done by some idiot prepared to put the water supply at risk. It may also put the landlord off doing it all together. They only insisted on it being done by a professional to avoid leaks. I don't suppose that regs have even come into the equation.

    I merely asked on here to see if someone knew the answer, I know that WRAS are an accessible resource so also contacted them. It's one of those jobs that I just don't come across often so rather than blindly attack the job I wanted an objective opinion.

    Thanks all

    I know I have banged on about this quite enough now so this is my last moan, just to be clear it would not be OK if it wasn't off the mains. Even if the hot & cold to that blending valve were cistern fed but the cistern also served other fitting such as hot & cold taps etc.

    The only way it works is if the cistern & hot water system are dedicated & serve only the Category 5 risks.

    Not been sorted as tenant won't pay for the job. I told them it's installed properly by the book or not at all by me. They'll probably get some cowboy in but at least my conscience will be clear
