Guys please see attached image. Can you kindly advise if the PVC pipe is suitable? Does this class as a GRP protective sleeve?
I am concerned about the lack of brackets on all of the pipework. Can anyone kindly advise what the standard practice is? Looks like lazy workmahsip to me. As the meter is placed adjacent to a public footpath I was expecting a more robust install.
Unfortunately I don’t have any access BS6400-1.
Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

Hmmm. So Miller claim to win more NHBC Awards than any other Developer. But then… that’s a pretty low bar to aim for!
They get two out of five stars on Trustpilot, although with the Review Stats I wonder how they got that many:
Frankly, if your most serious complaint is that the gas pipes have insufficient support, then you’ve done better than the majority of their customers.
No, I don’t know the rules for fixing gas pipes, but I can probably check with a contact who surveys houses for such criteria. I’m unsure if the rules are different in Scotland. How did you find out it was BS6400-1 ?
At the moment I’m asking you questions to check if Miller have to obey the current standards. It’s often the case that major house-builders pre-register the entire estate with NHBC. This fixes the build standard at whatever prevailed at that time, regardless of when the houses are eventually built.
So can I ask:
- What is the date of the SAP certification on the bottom of the printout (this is automatically inserted by the SAP software).
- Do you happen to know the Planning Application ID for the original Outline Consent? If not, do you know the ID for the Final Application (at least for the phase your house is built within)?
