    I have mine with Aviva through a broker linked through the plumbers federation. Combined employers (3 guys) and liability costs £1200 but the employers bit bumps it up. Whoever you choose make sure you read the small print. Many allow heat but there are always restrictions. To comply with the stipulations of most you would need to remove the house while you solder. You will find that out if you ever have the misfortune to need it. Don't scrimp on your liability. You WILL need it at some point.

    The heat policy with Aviva also covers welding indoors and oxyacetylene cutting and welding and that's the bit where u need 10 meters distance from anything flammable ie remove house before doing anything. If u read policy properly the soldering bit only states protect immediate area as reasonably practicable and have extinguisher to hand and periodic checks for next 1hr. I had to ring up cos I also thought needed to remove house to solder

    If they ask what percentage of time you expect to use heat remember it is the actual time you spend with the torch lit, eg solder 20 fittings in an 8hr day, gas torch on for 30 seconds a time is 10 minutes, just over 2% of your time (use under 5% to keep yourself right).
