  1. Hi Sorry for all the posts i figured i best post the problems on separate posts to avoid mix up.
    I noticed green on my copper pipe which carries gas and am a bit worried about it, here is a photo, is it a problem?
    The photo does not show the green very much-loks like grey on photo but is actually green, its a lot more greener when you look at the actual pipe, its in the boiler cupboard, is it anything to worry about?
    Many thanks green on gas copper pipe.jpg

    Stop worrying would be good advice! :)
  3. But its a gas pipe, thats why i am worried, I tried googling and could find nothing.

    No need to worry then, you did the same last year with plumbing thinks you are looking for non existent problems! ;)
  5. It's cos the old owner was a cowboy builder who messed around with the pipes and one water pipe did leak a couople of years ago, and cos i live in a flat with a false timber ceiling I worry about rotting the timber above thier plasterboard, but i know that isnt a gas engineer issue.
