HI all
This is my first post, only registered yesterday so be kind.
I went and done an estimate the other day for some extra sockets in a kitchen (yes I am part p).
Found that there’s no main water or gas bonding (no gas at property yet). Told customer that it needed to be done before I can work, she said fine. So quoted for water bonding as well.
Now won the quote and she told me that she’s having a gas supply fitted and new combi boiler, pipe work and rads.
So, my question is...
Will the boiler fitter provide main bonding to the gas (he’s due to start before me) and also what about the water bonding, are they required to do that as part of their installation?
Just want to get an idea of what will be done or not done when I turn up.
Your thoughts will be appreciated.

to be honest, people tend to do as little as possible, I don't think they will bond it, as their probably not compentent to work on a supply/consumer unit,so its up to the sparky to bond it. As it'll be your name on the cert, not theirs, not their problem i guess.

I would say that it will be your job to pull in the 2 10mm earths. No great shakes though hopefully?

Have to agree with the others. all plumbers that I've 'worked' with have always left bonding to the sparky.

thanks for your replies, stop cock is in the kitchen at back of house, with c/u in hallway at front (but already quoted to do this). I presume that gas meter will be fitted at front, so no big deal to do that either, apart from a small charge. the main thing i was getting at was, do plumbers/heating engineers have to work to the same regs as us? IE. main bonding must be in place.

doubt it...main bonding's nothing to do with plumbers imho.

The plumber almost certainly will not take care of any main or supplementry bonding, so It's down to you.

If it were me I would just get on and do it find out where the gas meter is going and run a 10 mm earth cable to it.

Theres no harm in "looping" 1 bonding conductor from the gas to the water providing the conductor is not broken. In most cases its as easy to run 2 seperate conductors.

Hope this helps....
