Wrong coal?

Good result - and they've got a satisfied customer who will probably buy from them again and even recommend them as being good at Customer Service etc - so a good result all round.

Matty ((HUGS)) - very gentle ones

Pdoc    Pressies for OHs can be difficult.  We're just buying each other a small gift this year and putting money to a city break later - maybe Feb or March.  I'm getting him a mixed crate of real ale - but don't tell him!!!

Re Christmas Emoticons - Daniel has said he's sorry but he's been told they're not possible this year   He has tried charm and persuasion etc, but apparently none of the sites serviced by the Tech Team are getting them this year - not even the Radio Times!!!  We're all in this together!!!

We have a meter and mains drainage with Anglian Water - there's only the two of us and our water bills are nearly £600 pa!!!  We have water butts for the garden, but do have to use the hose/sprinkler sometimes.

Wrong coal?

I agree with Gemma - if the supplier was told the type of stove the fuel was for and he advised that the anthracite was suitable then he was wrong and the onus is on him to replace it - he is the one supposed to have the specialist knowledge. 

However, if the supplier asked 'do you want anthracite? and customer said 'yes' then the onus is on the customer.

Woodburners are designed to work with very little draught so that the logs just 'slumber'.

Wrong coal?

Contact your supplier and tell him!  If it's unsuitable for the job then hopefully he'll take it back - you might have to bag it up for him but if you explained the sort of stove that you have and what has worked in the past, and he supplied a fuel that doesn't work then the onus is on him to replace it with something that does work.

Good luck
