When u say plumb line what do u mean? Access to water or id imagine some type of drainage
see im wondering whether its worth waiting till the loft gets done because surely then there will be a good chance to link that drainage up with the bathroom drainage pipe? I don’t know
so i could get away without a pump if it somehow gets hooked up to the waste for the bathroom.
otherwise some type of pump will be in my loft space
Thanks mate that explains things much better to me
if im going to build a bathroom in the loft then surely the ac installer could use the bathroom waste pipe for the condensation rather than using a pump in the loft.
Btw do u have a picture of what this pump looks like ooi?
Btw the trunking looks nice and neat
is there a reason why that external extractor was not placed right up on the top right hand side of your house?
surely that is a better spot
It depends where your bathroom will be and what wall your unit will go on but technically yes that could work. Some thing to think about before you go ahead with it all and you will no doubt need to coordinate with the builder and AC installer to make sure it can be done during the build as you might not have access afterwards.
I think this is what the pump was going to be, he quoted £90 so sounds about right. It's an inline pump that would have gone in the trunking that would of had to come out the side of the unit before going up in to the loft (less attractive in the house)
I was very keen to not have a pump as its something else to fail. One at work failed several times over the years (i've been there a long time) and water runs down the wall and makes a huge mess.
Yes it would have been much better and out of site but accessibility would have been a pain each time it needed to be serviced.
i just wonder if it being up there could upset neighbours and our council
They will say it is unsightly etc too many moaners around me for my liking
Prob sour grapes
This is another reason why I did not want it up there as my detached neighbour has a bathroom window opposite which they have open a lot in the summer. The unit is quiet but I didnt want any additional noise being projected in their direction to cause them any upset. Plus you could see the AC unit from the road too which I wanted to avoid.
You are not supposed to have it within 1m from the boundary so I may have to get mine moved in the future, or apply for planning permission etc. If I really had to I would get the unit moved to where my bench is in my garden.
