    Hello
    Would you need a particular qualification to install an unvented tank hot water system including boiler vessels etc etc. Is a gas safe person qualified enough?

    G3 cert required for unvented, I believe.

    Try a Google.

    baracus,if you have some plumbing experience,some common sense then you can do the g3 course and assessment,same day at a cost of around £300+vat

    then you can install and do the periodic servicing,which those cylinders require. handy if you live in an estate with many unvented cylinders :)

    dont forget my 10%

    The G3 course is essentially a 'fitness' test.

    When you pressurise the system, how fast can you run?
