    Central Heating Boiler question !

    Powerflushing is a great money maker for BG... According to them there are very few issues that can't be fixed with a powerflush... Unless there are issues with cold areas in the radiators, a drain down fit a Magnaclean on the return and refill with inhibitor, checking the magnaclean now an then.. If there are cold spots in the radiators or poor flow, then it's time to flush..

    It can be a pain as the pipework would need draining down or freezing to allow the switch to be removed.. Last one I did, the water had found its way into the PCB and fried that too..

    It seems to be temperature related as if you run it on a timer, then the pipes will be cooler than if it is constantly on.. The drip could be evaporating before it can get to the kitchen counter.. If the drip is on the right, then it is possible that the plastic flow switch or its seals have failed, on the left, then it could be a condensate issue.. Blocked con pipe, blocked or cracked trap or buggered sump and or sump seals, could even be a failed flue seal.. Either way it needs looking at and soon
  4. So you are saying that you would rather have a machine do your thinking for you..
  5. And once you have a vehicle fitted with this system, what do you think would be one of the questions asked of you in the event of a traffic incident?.. They will be able to check to see if you are telling the truth.. What might the response be if you tell them that your speed limiter was switched off?
  6. I regularly break the speed limit but never drive at an inappropriate speed.
  7. Look, they may be really bad arguments to you but you may be the kind of person who cannot control himself and so cannot be trusted not to drive at an inappropriate speed.... Many folk here don't like the fact that someone is further encroaching on their personal freedoms but have a problem with condemning the place that these requirements come from... Ultimately it is a move to driverless cars where you will be a passenger on your own personal bus
  8. I guess that all depends if you are the kind of person who believes that drivers who adhere to the speed limits are safe drivers
  9. I'm not sure that I agree with you. How Brexit turns out will have a bearing on how the UK adopts these rules from giving the driver the option to use this driver aid to mandatory use of it with the possibility of prosecution if you are found to have disabled it..
  10. Ah, the return of the undead..
  11. But you must admit that by the very fact that your cars will be fitted with an automatic speed limiter, someone has decided that you are not to be trusted with the operation of a motor vehicle..
  12. I think that it's great that those on high think that we plebs are too stupid to control our motor vehicles properly... I guess that they have contempt for all of us, not just stupid Leave voters
  13. Brexit is never ending... The speed thing all depends on if it is a legal requirement in the UK, if not the remappers will do a good trade in reprogramming the speed limiters
  14. Good job it is Brexit day today.....
