But does it have to be to current standards? That is why I asked if it was a retrospective regulation. My back boiler does not meet current standards for efficiency but I don't have to change it.

No you dont have to change it, unless you change the tap, or the pipework, same with the back boiler, you can repair it, but cant replace it unless you meet the strict criteria for not having a condensing boiler, you can still buy a back boiler unit though!!

Out of interest what is the criteria for not having one of those expensive condensing things that they lie about the efficiency of?

Re: Fitting an outside tap.....

They dont lie about the efficiency, I have a gas analiser, and can prove that some of these are up to 98% efficient in the winter.. sedbuk is a seasonal efficiency, not a constant... The criteria, in short, is that the savings made would be far less than the costs of installation, or if a condensing flue or drain cannot possibly be installed, this has to be applied for with the council, and very few are successful, if you live 20 storeys up, with no outside wall, you might just get away with it!

Dont buy the one in the link though, it is one of the older ones (401), there wont be many parts available for that, but plenty for the 502, 57/4 and the likes.

Re: Fitting an outside tap.....

Well, as this thread has wandered off the edge of the planet, might as well carry on (sorry Emzy), I dont know anyone at Baxi, Valor, Potterton, Main, or whoever actually owns it now, I do know that people who work there, dont used thier products, especially if they have to pay! , used to be a lot of free stuff about, but I think somebody remembered to close the back door!
