hi all,

last week my condensate pipe froze (-5 in north London!!)

anyway, easy fix as I removed the plastic piping and knocked the ice out.

because my boiler is on the first floor and I had to use a ladder to get to the pipe outside, I was wondering what I could do to prevent the pipe from freezing up again. (I would like to add that this is the first time this has ever happened, so not a common occurrence)

thanks

Speak to whoever services your boiler, it might be practical to connect it into your sink waste pipe inside the house.

Chances are the condensate will be about 22mm dia.
