The statement that this can be used on 'gas pipes' worries me.
Usage: gas pipes,
This tape is NOT in my Corgi/Gas Safe Regs. You should NEVER try to seal a gas leak with this or any other tape or indeed any adhesive. A gas leak needs to be assessed and repaired by a competent person to a standard that is acceptable under the gas installation regulations.

I'm well aware of what the OP states. Corrosion of pipes (gas and liquid type), leads to leaks. I repeat, I do NOT see 'Sealfast Anti-Corrosion Tape' mentioned ANYWHERE in the gas regs either as a corrosion preventer and/or a leak sealer. However, if you click on the link and then click 'See larger Image', the picture comes up of the actual product without the packaging. The product looks like 'Denso Tape' and Denso Tape is indeed used in gas work.

If the product IS Denso Tape then obviously I withdraw my early statement. Denso Tape is used as an Anti-Corrosion Tape on Gas Pipes. I still maintain though that unless you are competent/qualified then you should not carry out work on any gas pipework and/or appliance. My worry is that this tape in the wrong hands could lead to a dangerous situation ie someone uses it to cover over a corroded gas pipe and they 'think' they've solved a problem but that pipework should be inspected by someone who is competent/qualified to decide on the safest course of action.

I am simply trying to be helpful guys.

Possibly the best deal I have seen here, Will be interesting to see whether or not it gets voted hot when most of us have no use for it, for the record I gave it the thumbs up.
#8
Have checked all stores within 50 miles of Norwich and none available. Has anyone actually bought a roll?
#9

bloody corgi mafia, they turn up at the slightest mention of gas always with the advice yeah get my mate in because he is registered and pay a fat premium for the pleasure. You're breaking the law if you do it yourself, don't touch anything or else you die...etc etc.

It's about time the government sorted out the corgi mafia the whole gas safe register is a joke, to become one you need to know someone who is already one who can pass you as competent? imagine if all jobs did that! talk about a stitched up market.

Good price OP voted hot.

Of course the flip side is do you want blowing up by your incompetent neighbour? but yeah I agree fitting charges are a joke.

Its just another Government endorsed scam. Legally mugging off honest people and getting fat off it. [Gas safe boiler engineer sucks in air through small mouth hole] ye gonna need a noo boarla and nats gonna be oooohhh [sucks in more air through small mouth hole] about 1800 quid un nen nheres de VAT..
Its the language that's the worst thing. The obviously stupid fat oath mugging off educated people with nonsense and rubbish just because the government licences him to be able to do so. Obviously this doesn't apply to all the gas safe engineers. There will be the decent ones who would never do anything like this.

There may well be Gas Engineers out there that charge more than the average rate but just like any other service, it is entirely up to a customer to decide if he/she wants to pay that amount. What I would say to you is that the costs involved in being registered with Gas Safe are by no means small and just like Corgi, Gas Safe has a monopoly. Unlike any other service, a Gas Engineer cannot shop around for the best price/service, it's Gas Safe or nothing! Is that fair? NO! Will it change? No! The next financial hit for a Gas Engineer is CPD (Continuous Professional Development). The Engineer must keep up to date with new legislation/regulation/manufacturing practices etc etc. Obviously the engineer could choose not to involve himself/herself in CPD but it WILL catch up with them as every 5 years he/she MUST go to a reassessment centre and be tested on their knowledge/competence. Once again, that is chargeable. The next hit is 'Testing Device Calibration'. Machines such as 'Gas Analysers' must have their calibration checked and obviously that's a chargeable service. The last and in my opinion, the most important point in all of this is 'responsibility'. When a Gas Engineer enters your property and begins work on any Gas Appliance in your home, at that point, he/she becomes responsible for the gas safety for EVERY gas appliance and ALL gas pipework in your home. Even if he/she has never carried out work in your property before. He/she is required to ensure the safety of ALL gas appliances and gas pipework in your property. I have heard people talk about engineers coming into their home and telling the home owner they have to disconnect a Gas Fire that he/she hasn't even worked on! Obviously that annoys people. It would annoy me, but the engineer is REQUIRED to do that. If he/she finds ANY unsafe situations he/she MUST act on that. Yes, a repair to an unsafe appliance would be chargeable but it's not a charity he/she is running. The home owner can refuse to allow the engineer to disconnect an appliance and/or an area of pipework and the engineer must respect that but at that point he/she will serve the customer with a notification that the appliance is unsafe and must not be used. He/she will also then contact Transco and they will arrive at the property within an hour of the call. They will usually meet the engineer there and speak to the customer. If the customer still refuses to allow the engineer to disconnect the unsafe appliance then Transco will simple disconnect their entire gas supply. At that point the customer will have to pay for reconnection and pay for an engineer to make the unsafe appliance safe. ANY engineer worth his/her salt will be VERY suspicious of carrying out work on such a property though. If the customer has been disconnected it is for good reason and as such they may find it difficult to engage the services of another engineer.

Don't get me wrong here, there will, in ANY service, be some who will try to use their knowledge to extract as much money as possible from people. My advice is always ask family and friends if they have used someone and whether they would recommend them. It may well be that they thought the engineer was cheap but that he/she left the place in a mess. Or that he/she was cheap but was unpleasant, rude abrupt etc. On the other hand, they may have had very good service and found the engineer polite and respectful of their property.

I think with the showing of TV programs such as Rogue Traders people have developed a suspicion of construction trades. Some of that is well founded, some of that is unfair but please don't tar everyone with the same brush.

For your information, although I am a qualified and competent gas engineer, I do not work with Gas. The charges (that the engineer has to pay), are just too high and the level of responsibility are just not worth it in my opinion.
