    I am going to re-instate my coal fire, price of oil is rediculous!
    The house has OFCH but the workings are still in place for SFCH. The pipes all stil run behind the fire brick and the pump is still in place. I just had them covered up when I moved in, having never used them.
    Just want some advice as to the checks that are needed before lighting and having a disaster.
    I will be getting a heating eng. in but I want to know what might be involved in general.

    Ah! King Coal Is King once more. Pit's will be sprining up all over the country again.

    I can see the training providers starting to provide courses on coal excavation to the countless numbers of adult retrainee miners LOL.

    On a seroius note, get a solid fuel registered guy out I believe it is HETAS, They'll have a look. It's unlikely any of the new breed of heating engineers will know much about solid fuel.
