Corgi Gas Check

Yesterday Peter Bell, a Corgi Approved Gas Engineer, came aboard ‘Bumper’ to check the gas cooker. A few weeks ago I installed a new Techimpex Skipper Cooker with two burners and a grill, and for insurance purposes it was necessary to have a certificate of compliance to the current regulations for gas installations. Needless to say, it fell short of what was required, because it lacked a gas isolation tap.

Once I agreed to have the tap fitted Peter did the job very efficiently and carried out the standard tests.

That’s an item removed from my ‘Jobs to Do’ list, so that I can look forward with some confidence to using the cooker during my forthcoming West Country cruise.

Here are some details for those who may find them useful:
