Connection to the condensate trap
Condensate produced by the appliance is mildly
acidic (pH 3.5 - 5.0). Use protective gloves
Condensate must only be discharged in accordance
with these instructions.
The volume of condensates evacuated can reach about
15 litres per day for a detached house. This volume
is negligible compared to the volume of waste water
discharged by a house, because the condensates are
diluted in this water.
• Refer to BS5546 or BS6798 for advice on disposal of boiler
• Make sure there is no protective plug fitted.
• Connect the condensate pipe (
The pipe should have a fall of a least 2.5° 44mm/
metre away from the boiler.
Condensate should, if possible be discharged into the household
internal drainage system.
• If this is not practicable, discharge can be allowed into the
external household drains or a purpose designed soak away,
refer to diagram overleaf.
It is recommended that any external condensate drain pipe is
protected and also preferably of 32mm diameter, to prevent
freezing in adverse weather conditions.
• Always ensure the pipe is installed with the correct fall
plastic pipe to connect to the condensate outlet -
do not use metal pipes. It is permissible to use a condensate
neutraliser providing that it is checked for correct operation.
