Hi, thank you for your response. The old boiler was about 30yrs old and did not require an earth wire. New boilers now must include an earth wire.
Hi, thank you for your help. Very much appreciated. I discussed the issue with the Electrician who came to finish of the work last week. The work is essential. We have found and alternative route through the house. This looks very ugly. To carry out the work properly through the house would indeed require the laminated flooring to be uprooted and holes drilled though all the under beams (very costly). We are not really prepared to go through the courts unless it was almost certain we would win the case. Again the solution we have now is ugly, and we consider it to be a temporary workaround (I have never seed a house that has this kind of visible routing for a standard boiler). Perhaps we will have it routed under the floorboards so it is not visable when we replace the flooring, That said, the laminate is in pretty good condition, so might be a while:-(
