I am posting this as i am now a bit sick and tired of plumbers installing their HWC's bang in the middle of the roof space where the electricians are supposed to crawl. It makes the access further into the roof difficult.
Electricians now have to crawl over the cylinder, or underneath some pipes.
I think the plumbers should have a rethink with this practice.
I get the impression that they think the roof space is just for them.
Some times the element part is in such a position that virtually no maintenance or even checking can be done with out busting your neck.
Its just plain common sense i thinks.
Now my rant is now over thankyou
