    Also not too happy about the drain connection. We can't see the entire hose but given how much hose we can see, I'd have 2 concerns, the first is that there's no air break in the connection, and the second would be if it goes high enough behind the machine for it to not syphon out the contents when operating. There's also the issue of a device in close proximity to water that's may not be protected in the way I'd expect it to be from a power/earth/RCD basis.

    Shore, if it was easy, everybody would be doin it.😁

    At the very least that setup needs the addition of a very strong toilet seat no matter what the plumbing or electrical issues are.

    Very handy setup there. Like the old shampoo ad, In one sitting you could wash. And go.

    I know some of you have probably seen worse but I had to post it.

    Today I was looking at a boiler that I was told was put in less than a year ago, apart from the state of the boiler (buckled plates, melted condensate trap etc, etc) This was the oil tank!! It was against a party wall and leaning slightly in towards the garden.

    Worst tank I came across was one put up on pallets. It had been there over 10 years. Eventually the horizontal boards on top rotted completely and the full plastic oil tank sat down on the now protruding nail heads and leaked. I had mentioned it to him a year before it happened, but was told "sure its been there for years, not a bother on it"

    OH! btw that reminds me of a tip I have for this situation. If you have an oil tank leaking from the bottom, maintain a couple of inches of water in it until you can get it sorted properly. The water will go to the bottom and you will then only have water leaking out.

    Please follow site and charter rules. "Resistance is futile"

    TBH I've never seen baffles as bad. Seen the warped, half melted but not every baffle absolutely disintegrated.

    For me, it had to be over-firing or a faulty boiler thermostat. He didn't seem too bothered, he had a nozzle in his hand to get a match. I asked what if the last guy put in whatever was in his box, he said that's why he came into Chadwick's. He doesn't do boilers. But great news, the counter guy was able to match the old nozzle perfectly, which was the wrong nozzle anyhow.

    and youd wonder where the saying bangin your head off a wall came from

    warmflow stats can be suspect for sure do you know what nozzle was fitted

    Nozzle was an 0.65 80S instead of a 0.65 60 ES, but that was not the issue to cause that much damage.

    No, it's not corrosion, it's melted metal.

    Was the boiler stat faulty / wired wrong and system was relying on the room stats or tine clock to stop?
