    :Eeek: My water pipe blew off the boiler on thursday night :Eeek: luckily we were in the van and I heard it go :thumb: Turned the pump off within a couple of seconds or we would have had 75 ltrs of water in the van :Doh::Eek!:Took about 3 or 4 mins next morning to find and refit the pipe :thumb: but it was a tight squeeze in the cupboard :Rofl1: next time I build a van there will be nothing in the way of things in inacessable places :thumb::BigGrin:Not bad after almost 4 1/2 yrs :thumb: the first thing to go wrong was a bit of self adhesive trim to fall off :Rofl1:

    Will do :thumb: I am blaming my mate since it was him who tightened the jubilee clip :BigGrin: It must have been him because the boiler was fitted before I did the worktop making it a tight squeeze for me to get at it ( too old and too fat :Rofl1:) Wonder how much it will cost to sue him :BigGrin:OR should I put the money to fixing the van heehee

    They give me big cupboard under the sink so put towels in there but pipe work just push into each other. A recipe for disaster especially with me. Cant feel my feet (health) but they were so cold and could not work it out for 24 hours. Suddenly realized they were some what wet:Doh: :RollEyes:

    Everything as you want it and any (rare) fault easily fixed by the converter who is always near to hand...
