Gas fire disconnection

Christina B in Great Bealings
Hi, we're looking for someone who can disconnect a gas fire without charging exorbitant call-out charge. We think we could probably do it ourselves but 'Google' says it should be done by a 'competent person'. Thanks in advance!

I would have thought that performance poor enough to warrant escallation within BT and Ofcom.  If rain stops service there is most likely water in a joint and BT should fix it (assuming it is within their wiring rather than within your house).
Jeff W
I report it, they fix it. Openreach will not replace a certain cable across the A12 because it is too expensive and not cost effective. They lay underground cables less than a metre from the surface which allows the farmer to cutsthrough them. ... [ more ]
