    I'm a spark and working on a refit ... the GSE is going to put the new boiler on the wall very close to the floor - is this OK?

    Never seen one low on a floor before.

    If it's to M.I's then it's ok. Going to be a right [email protected] to work on in future though, accessing valves etc. Sounds like he's a F.I.F.O merchant!

    Normally most require 4-6" below the boiler

    Any reason why he's fitted it so low ?
