    hello have a keston boiler.. touch wood .. working ok .. but time soon to replace .. we originally got a keston because there is a horizontal flue over about 5 meters ..

    which other brands of boilers would be able to be slotted in to replace the keston when needed ?

    thanks

    Manufacturers have a limit on flue length, including bends. Would need to get an idea of what you would like and check with your gsr that it conforms.

    You will need a new flue with a new boiler.

    I've just had a look because I'm sad like that and they do a 4m extension.

    Friend of mine did something similar once. I needed a full length of 15mm pipe and when he had finally returned with it it was bent in 2....I asked what had happened and he said he couldn't fit it in the lift. Stairs right next to the lift obviously.

    ALL RIGHT! Obviously my stupid fat fingers hit the 7 instead of the 4 while I was mashing away at the keyboard!! And you could fit a 7m on the roof rack.. Of an Iveco Daily.. LWB. So there
