I have a coal effect gas fire that uses approx 15 individual pieces of "coal" that now need replacing since they have lost their original colour over the years.
Is it important to use the identical replacement pieces from the original fire manufacturer, or can I use any ceramic based coals, and ideally of a smaller size, provided they are laid evenly over the gas burners?
They have to be the specified coals for that appliance, there may be different coals, pebbles, logs etc but it has to be for that appliance, take the GC number to any heating spares shop and they will order them for you (if your fire isn't too old) they're not cheap though.
Thanks for the reply. So a set of generic ceramic coal pieces suppied as a set off ebay from a "corgi" registered supplier (so they say ?) would not be safe. Is that right?
It did seem too good to be true, at Â£15 for the set, when a replacement set from the manufacturer is Â£69.
