About this deal

It's not the longest thread thankfully but some of them are and they can be fairly tedious to go through. These pipes are also commonly found in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems as well as household boilers, and they can be made of a variety of materials, including copper, PVC, and aluminium. If you are unsure you can ask our team of experts for help if you can provide photos, we will try and identify the pipe for you. Why insulate condensate pipe? A majority of today's gas boilers are high-performance condensing boilers that condense water vapour using fuel to produce heat. The heat so produced is directed to your heating system to help maintain warmer indoors. Condensate pro is designed for 32mm diameter solvent weld pipes and contains three 1m semi-rigid insulation pipes, perfect for protecting against frozen boiler outlet pipes. The UV-stable and weather-resistant coating on each length of insulation make it the perfect external condensate protection solution. They are also designed to withstand the acidic nature of the wastewater and the harsh environmental conditions.

Therefore for the majority of people nitrile rubber, polyethelene or condensate pro is the easiest and most inexpensive option. How to Install Condensate pipe insulation? That being said as long as the pipe isn't leaking and it is in good condition then any kind of pipe insulation can be used but if it's not nitrile rubber or condensate pro but anything other than a closed cell foam lagging, then this will need cladding on the outside to protect it from the elements. Moreover, by insulating condensate pipes, you ensure that they remain protected from damage due to external factors like UV, harsh climate etc, which in turn improves the overall boiler functioning. Which is the best insulation for condensate pipes? Longer lengths of condensate which have many elbows are maybe best left to professional thermal insulation contractors. Where to buy condensate pipe insulation? In the majority of cases, the boiler will just cease to function, leaving you without any heating during freezing temperatures, literally the worst time to have a boiler breakdown occur!

Your Basket is Empty

As the saying goes a stitch in time saves 9, and not lagging condensate pipes could lead to a hefty bill to call an engineer out to fix your boiler. This process of producing heat releases carbon dioxide and water vapour which form an acidic wastewater mix called condensate. The condensate is released and sent out of the building through condensate pipes into the drain outside. Where is the condensate pipe on a boiler? I have now had an opportunity to break down the existing setup and it's going to be a pain if you can't help with sizing advice. The condensate pro insulation kit is specially designed with the layperson in mind, a condenser pipe insulation that allows for easy cutting, mitering, and bonding.You can create sleek, clean finishes around all pipework using Condensate Pro PPS Bond & Seal, which offers maximum protection and a finished look.

The small, white plastic pipe present on the underside of a boiler that usually runs to the outside of your home and ends in the drain is the condensate pipe. It is mostly white in colour and about 20 mm-32 mm in size. By insulating condensate pipes, you can ensure that these pipes do not freeze which gives you a smooth functioning boiler. Not only that, but insulating condensate pipes also reduce the risk of condensation, which in turn prevents the risk of wastewater drips damaging the structure. As the name suggests push fit pipe is connected using push-fit fittings which have their own internal seal and do not require any additional sealing. Solvent Weld pipe requires that a solvent weld cement (similar to glue) is used on the joint which literally welds the two together, forming a very strong permanent seal. Solvent Fittings and push-fit fittings cannot be interchanged i.e. you can’t use a solvent fitting on the push-fit pipe or vice-versa. As well as the obvious size differences (apart from 110mm) they are made of different materials and in particular, only solvent weld pipe and fittings will weld using solvent cement.I have a joint welded into the soil pipe which offers a pushfit to the plumbing. That seems to be 36mm exactly. This has a grey 90deg bend pushed into it with a compression joint on the outer end. The 90deg bend is clearly labelled 1 1/4" moulded into it. It's OD is a mm or so over the chrome pipe I am trying to mate to and it fits perfectly with no clearance at all into the mouth of the pushfit.
