    Default Moving Hot Water Cylinder - Consent Needed?

    Hi guys

    In my lim it specifies where the HWC is located. I want to move the HWC location to outside or in the garage below.

    Do i need to get council consent?

    Hi, be aware if not plumbed correctly that a hot water cylinder especially if mains pressure can take the side of your house out, therefore be a bomb.

    I had this done several times by licensed plumbers / gasfitters even recently. Frees up good cupboard space in small houses. Not a single case was referenced by the plumber to council to my knowledge, and they seemed more concerned about exterior position, window openings, concrete pad and other sensible technical issues than asking some council parasite to get involved.
