I hope the person who made the 'alterations' has been reported. I strongly suspect that blanking off the CO detector could be illegal, certainly would be a real problem if they were renting the property out and anything happened to people staying.

That I cannot tell you if the person was reported. I am given to understand that this kind of 'modification' is common practice by disreputable 'tradesmen' in the Chiclana area.

We have a constant problem with our water heater. It is outside within a casing but we hardly ever have a good flow of hot water. It usually goes cold when you are shampooing and is a nightmare. As it is outside there would not be a problem of "being gassed" though. A neighbour of ours had his blow up. Again luckily it was outside as it caused a nasty fire.

It was because of this very concern that we had ours installed on the outside wall within a brick built "small shed" we have never had any problems with water going hot/cold/cold/hot (touch wood)
do you know the name of the "plumber" ?

We seem to have the same problem Glynis, and ours is inside. It always takes a while to get the pilot flame started each time we arrive. Runs for ages ok, but then then will suddenly cut out in the middle of a shower, but not all the time. It's a Junckers boiler with a battery ignition for the pilot light. When it's working it is very good...excellent flow and really hot water.

Ours is Junkers too. It has always been a problem from the time it was installed when we complained about it but as luck always have it every time the kitchen people sent a plumber out it worked perfectly!!!! We are now thinking that we should upgrade to a larger boiler.

We had the exact same problem in our old house in desperation we contacted Junkers direct who sent a techie out. He adjusted the gas pressure took him about 5 mins and bingo problem no more. On leaving muttered something about that he wished the people who installad gas heaters knew what they were doing!

Thanks Mitzi....When we mentioned it to the kitchen installer he did say that he could get Junkers out under warranty, but when one is visiting in short bursts it is sometimes difficult to co-ordinate. Will have to try and sort something out.
Incidentally how is your new house?? No more problems I hope !!

Sometimes the water goes cold when the water pressure is not adequate. The well pump has a pressure vessel (big ball) and the bladder inside needs to be kept pumped up. These pressure vessels do not last for ever and need replacing from time to time, so a plumber should be checking this as well as the boiler - I'm told.
