    I have a hot water system that was professionally fitted. It has a pocket into which an additional thermostat for the solar panel can be placed. The wires were left trailing and the thermostat came out. Two questions, firstly is it OK to tape the thermostat wires to the pipework to keep the wires secure? second question what is the best way of securing the thermostat in the pocket?

    Many thanks

    That used to be one of my favourite things, watching/playing village cricket and whilst waiting to ‘bat’ whittling away with my Swiss Army knife.
