    I can find lots of the above for Boiler installation, but assume for potable water they would be different internally (lined) due to possible cross contamination to the drinking water, anyone know where I can find one?

    I assume you need one for an unvented cylinder?

    Thought so , dont think I am being awkward but your vessel falls under G3 regulations and therefore needs a qualified guy to fit one .
    Sorry

    Yes good advice unless you hold the ticket these devices can literally be bombs if not set up correctly

    And what makes you think I don't hold the correct qualifications, mains pressure hot water systems have been used in the EU for many many years and are installed by DIY home owners without any legislative problems, having had these systems for so long they and others fully understand the need for pressure relief valves and pressure valves on the water main, explosions! there are no reported instances of explosions in the UK or EU either that I have heard first hand about, lots of I "was told about" of an explosion nonsense, mains pressure domestic hot water systems are the norm in the EU, but unfortunately the UK have been so far behind with vented cylinders for so long UK plumbers are scared stiff of something new and will invent problems to ensure they get the job of installing, I have to say that the responses are so typical of the UK plumber that frequents these page's it's painful, why don't one of you try to answer the question instead of being obstructive.

    Because if you held the correct qualifications you most likely wouldnt be asking the question, if you do however hold the qualification, forward them onto Riley or one the other mods, get your badge and then talk about this in the private section of the forum. They can't just answer the question in the public part as it's not just you who may read it and attempt to do the work.

    Good thing we’re leaving the EU then isn’t it. And why don’t you try reading the forum rules. You have been given correct AND legal information regarding G3 regulation. The fact that you don’t know where to obtain said vessel shows you have neither the training or the competence to fit one safely. I guess you will persist with with some other forum or similar until you get the answer you want but I’m glad I’m not your neighbour for when it goes wrong.
