Forum Title: Incorrect flue clearance??
ImageUploadedByPlumbing Forum1434232056.585040.jpg Hi guys Just wanted some opinions really, I went to service this Glow Worm 30SXi system boiler tonight and I found the flue like this (see picture). I isolated the boiler and put an AT RISK sticker on it, due to the flue being to close to the chimney breast. It wasn't so much the terminals being to close together as the flue being so close to the brick work, which I classed as a wall. The manufacturers instructions stated the flue should terminate 300mm from a wall and 600mm from another terminal. I was just wondering if anyone thought I had done right? Or have I made a big deal out of it? I would appreciate any feed back thanks.

Thanks for the reply. CYA? Sorry what does that mean Well I'm going by the book, the thing is the previous plumbers that have serviced it have all passed it no problem and they have had a survey of the house which has passed it as well! But I would count the brick work of the chimney breast as a wall and it's definitely not 300mm from the bricks.
