You, prob be looking at around Â£60-80 for a reconnect and test. that’s what we have to pay to ours for hobs anyhow.
There won’t be a flexible hose BTW as it has to be piped solid, you might be lucky and it’ll be in micro bore though which by nature is quite flexible.Posted 9 years agoSwiftacularMember
Quite flexible, but if its been done a few times before, could be snappable with a little cack-handedness. Seeing as i work on a gas rig, and am used to piping gas, and phosgene in the past, among other things, these things dont really phase me, but as the above posts state, totally illegal for you to touch it. And if youre getting a man in anyway, why the curiousity to look at it? You know you want to touch really.Posted 9 years agomountaincarrotMember
Actually there is nothing “totally illegal” as Neverfastenuff puts it about doing some of your own gas work. It is a good ruse to ensure plenty of work for CORGI fitters, and for many people, is their best bet. If you are being paid for it, you MUST be CORGI registered. For DIY, then according to the gas regulations you need to be “competent”.
You get to decide what that means, – or to prove it should “imcompetent” work put you in a court. Personally I do my own.Posted 9 years ago
