Wednesday 9 August 2017 – Gas problems

Having some gas problems.  I got a phone call from our SS late yesterday and once again, the plans don't comply with regulations, and the gas meter location on the plans is too close to the HWS.  Given that there is a slab for the HWS, it's easier to move the gas meter than the…
