    "Boiler must be installed in zone three, away from any risk of coming into contact with water. The main electrical spur for the boiler must be located outside of the bathroom completely, and the boiler should ideally be contained in a cupboard."

    "There are no gas safety issues with a boiler being installed in a bathroom, as long as it is built in a purpose built cupboard, away from water spray with enough clearance for servicing."

    "Boilers can be fitted in bathrooms providing that they are enclosed in a purpose-built compartment which allows plenty of access for future repair and maintenance. these clearances are defined within the manufacturers' literature which is supplied with the appliance. Whoever may fit this for you, if at all, shall have to ensure that it is compliant and that the boiler is notified under Building Regs as meeting Part L1."
