We have an immersion (sp?) tank to heat our hot water, this is activated by a switch.. no timer. There is an old back boiler behind the fireplace which isnt used (not used since we moved in) the previous owners told me it had been disconnected. . now im in the process of fitting my wood burner and when i tried to remove the back boiler i was covered in water!! .. yes amusing..
i thought.. ok.. let the boiler drain, so i emptied it and to be safe i sealed the pipe again and waited 24 hrs, yep.. it had filled up again... now its obviously still connected a water feed supply... (ill get to the point in a minute!) how can i go about disconnecting it from the water feed, or if its a case best left to a plumber, are there any plumbers out there who could give me an indication of cost, so when i get someone around i know roughly what to expect. (all id want a plumber to do is disconect and cap pipe, id remove boiler etc)
cheers! story over
