My neighbour tried this Sue but it took a while to boil each kettle so he preferred the hair dryer.I saw a post on Facebook about the outlet pipes on condenser boilers freezing, apparently it is causing a lot of callouts to heating engineers, the advice is to pour several kettles of boiling water over the outlet pipe the get the ice out.
Yes it's lovely isn't it? We have the 4x4 people taking NHS staff in to work , our local Taxi firm offered to pick up essentials for people who were struggling as "They were out & about anyway" & people on FB have been offering their help too.A couple of hearing engineers have posted on our local Facebook groups that the combi boiler breakdown is likely to be a frozen outlet pipe and have given instructions how to defrost it. They say they are too busy themselves to be able to do it themselves. So many people with 4x4s offering to take NHS staff and others to work, appointments etc and to shop for supplies for people. That’s if the shops are open as so many here are closed today. Mind you my daughter lives on a hill and her 4x4 can’t get out of her close because of ice adding to the snow!
It’s heartwarming to see the way the community comes together at times like this. It really does bring out the best in people.
Can you get to it by pouring a kettle out of a window Helen? @nellbelles.
What diameter is it?my outlet pipe is about 10 foot long and runs out of a bedroom I would need to go up a ladder to see to mine!
Decided it’s not going to freeze, but if it does ‘brother or nephews can go up ladder with kettle!’Can you get to it by pouring a kettle out of a window Helen? @nellbelles.
I've just poured a kettle of boiling water over my outlet pipe still doubtful I was doing the right thing in case the water freezes as it cools.
It rained heavily this morning and the rain immediately turned to ice on my front windows. They all look like the frosted glass we have in bathrooms. Even now it hasn't`t thawed.
