Simply Build It

I wouldn’t if I was you.

It’s not just the pipe work, there a bit more to it.

You have the wiring, motorised valves and control pack.

Not a job for amateur.

I would not start it; if you do you can make some very costly mistakes.

From a legal point of view, you can do all of the pipe work, radiators, valves, controls and heating treatments.

But not the boiler or any gas lines or work.

Save yourself a lot of time, trouble and money, don’t start it.

You will only have to call out a plumber in the end and you would have just double the cost.

If you’re just short of money, only have the boiler replaced.
