Building Regulations and the Benchmark Commissioning
Checklist
Building Regulations (England & Wales) require notification of
the installation of a heating appliance to the relevant Local
Authority Building Control Department. This can be achieved
via a Competent Persons Self Certification Scheme as an
option to notifying the Local Authority directly.
The Health & Safety Executive operates the ‘Gas Safe Register’,
a self-certification scheme for gas heating appliances.
The Benchmark Scheme
Benchmark places responsibilities on both manufacturers and installers. The
purpose is to ensure that customers are provided with the correct equipment for
their needs, that it is installed, commissioned and serviced in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions by competent persons and that it meets the
requirements of the appropriate Building Regulations. The Benchmark Checklist
can be used to demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations and should be
provided to the customer for future reference.
Installers are required to carry out installation, commissioning and servicing work
in accordance with the Benchmark Code of Practice which is available from the
Heating and Hotwater Industry Council who manage and promote the Scheme.

Full acknowledgement of author and source must be given.
These arrangements represent a change from the situation
whereby compliance with Building Regulations was accepted as
being demonstrated by completion of the Benchmark Logbook
(which was then left on site with the customer).
With the introduction of Self Certification Schemes, the
Benchmark Logbook is being withdrawn. However, a similar
document in the form of a commissioning checklist and service
interval record is incorporated at the back of these instructions.
This company is a member of the Benchmark initiative and fully
supports the aims of the programme. Its aim is to improve the
standards of installation and commissioning of central heating
systems in the UK and to encourage the regular servicing of all
central heating systems to ensure safety and efficiency.
Building Regulations require that installations should comply
with manufacturer's instructions. It is therefore important that
the commissioning checklist is completed by the installer. The
relevant section of Building Regulations only relates to
dwellings. Therefore the checklist only applies if the appliance is
being installed in a dwelling or some related structure.
The flowchart opposite gives guidance for installers on the
process necessary to ensure compliance with Building
Regulations.
WARNING: Any person who does any unauthorised act in relation to a
copyright work may be liable to criminal prosecution and civil claims for damages.

Safe Manual Handling
General
The following advice should be adhered to, from when first handling the boiler to the final stages of installation, and also during maintenance.
Most injuries as a result of inappropriate handling and lifting are to the back, but all other parts of the body are vulnerable, particularly shoulders, arms and hands.
Health & Safety is the responsibility of EVERYONE.
There is no ‘safe’ limit for one man - each person has different capabilities. The boiler should be handled and lifted by TWO PEOPLE.
Do not handle or lift unless you feel physically able.
Wear appropriate Personal Protection Equipment e.g. protective gloves, safety footwear etc.
Preparation
Co-ordinate movements - know where, and when, you are both going.
Minimise the number of times needed to move the boiler - plan ahead.
Always ensure when handling or lifting the route is clear and unobstructed. If possible avoid steps, wet or slippery surfaces, unlit areas etc. and take special care
on ladders/into lofts.
Technique
When handling or lifting always use safe techniques - keep your back straight, bend your knees. Don’t twist - move your feet, avoid bending forwards and
sideways and keep the load as close to your body as possible.
Where possible transport the boiler using a sack truck or other suitable trolley.
Always grip the boiler firmly, and before lifting feel where the weight is concentrated to establish the centre of gravity, repositioning yourself as necessary. See the
‘Installation’ section of these instructions for recommended lift points.
Remember
The circumstances of each installation are different. Always asses the risks associated with handling and lifting according to the individual conditions.
If at any time when installing the boiler you feel that you may have injured yourself STOP !!
DO NOT ‘work through’ the pain - you may cause further injury.
IF IN ANY DOUBT DO NOT HANDLE OR LIFT THE BOILER - OBTAIN ADVICE OR ASSISTANCE BEFORE PROCEEDING !!

3.0 Appliance Operation
3.1
16
14
Central Heating Mode
1. With a demand for heating, the pump circulates water
through the primary circuit.
17
2. Once main burner ignites the fan speed controls the gas
rate to maintain the heating temperature measured by the
temperature sensor.
18
3. When the flow temperature exceeds the setting
temperature, a 3 minute delay occurs before the burner
relights automatically (anti-cycling). The pump continues to
run during this period.
19
20
4. When the demand is satisfied the burner is extinguished
and the pump continues to run for a period of 3 minutes
(Pump Overrun).
21
22
24
3.2
23
13
Domestic Hot Water Mode
1. Priority is given to the domestic hot water supply. A
demand at a tap or shower will override any central heating
requirement.
12
2. The flow of water will operate the Hall Effect Sensor
which requests the 3 way valve to change position. This will
allow the pump to circulate the primary water through the
DHW plate heat exchanger.
11
10
3. The burner will light automatically and the temperature of
the domestic hot water is controlled by the temperature
sensor.

4. When the domestic hot water demand ceases the burner
will extinguish and the diverter valve will remain in the
domestic hot water mode, unless there is a demand for
central heating.

1. The frost protection mode is integral to the appliance and
functions as long as there is power to the boiler, as indicated
by the standby signal
.
2. With CH & DHW or CH only selected, when the boiler
temperature falls below 5°C the boiler will fire until a
temperature of 30°C is reached.
3. If DHW only is selected, when the boiler CH temperature
falls below 5°C the boiler will fire until a temperature of
30°C is reached. When the boiler DHW temperature falls
below 5°C the boiler will fire until a temperature of 7°C is
reached.
4. Further protection can be incorporated by using a system
frost thermostat.
3.4
Pump Protection
1. If the boiler has been inactive for a period of 24 hours the
pump will automatically operate for 1 minute to prevent
sticking.

Expansion Vessel (Central Heating only)
1. The appliance expansion vessel is pre-charged to 0.5 bar.
Therefore, the minimum cold fill pressure is 0.5 bar. The vessel
is suitable for correct operation for system capacities up to 125
litres (24/28) or 155 litres (33/40). For greater system capacities
an additional expansion vessel must be fitted. For GB refer to
BS 7074 Pt 1. For IE, the current edition of I.S. 813 “Domestic
Gas Installations”.
6.7
Safety Pressure Relief Valve (Fig. 6)
1. The pressure relief valve is set at 3 bar, therefore all
pipework, fittings, etc. should be suitable for pressures in excess
of 3 bar and temperature in excess of 100°C.
The end of the pipe should
terminate facing down and
towards the wall
2. The pressure relief discharge pipe should be not less than
15mm dia, run continuously downward, and discharge outside
the building, preferably over a drain. It should be routed in such
a manner that no hazard occurs to occupants or causes damage
to wiring or electrical components. The end of the pipe should
terminate facing down and towards the wall (Fig. 6a).
Fig. 6a
3. The discharge must not be above a window, entrance or
other public access. Consideration must be given to the
possibility that boiling water/steam could discharge from the
pipe.

IMPORTANT: Where Low Flow Taps or
Fittings are intended to be used in the DHW
system connected to a Baxi Duo-tec Combi GA
it is strongly recommended that the DHW flow
rate DOES NOT fall below 2.5l/min. This will
ensure reliable operation of the DHW function.
2. Your attention is drawn to:
for GB: Guidance G17 to G24 and recommendation R17 to
R24 of the Water Regulations Guide.
for IE: the current edition of I.S. 813 “Domestic Gas
Installations”.
3. The Water Regulations recommendations for England and
Wales prohibits backflow from appliances into the
wholesome water supply due to thermal expansion.
However this type of instantaneous combination boiler, with
less than 15 litres of stored capacity, does not require any
backflow prevention device as any thermal expansion is
accommodated within the appliance.
It is possible in certain circumstances that other cold water
demands (e.g. washing machines, flushing of W.C.s) may
affect the DHW function of the boiler. In these instances the
fitting of a backflow prevention device and expansion vessel
is recommended.
4. Also if there is an existing check valve, loose jumpered
stop cock, water meter or water treatment device already
fitted to the wholesome water supply connected to the
boiler domestic hot water (DHW) inlet supply then a
suitable expansion device may be required.
5. The boiler’s maximum working mains pressure is 8 bar,
therefore all pipework, connections, fittings, etc. should be
suitable for pressures in excess of 8 bar. A pressure reducing
valve must be fitted for pressures in excess of 8 bar. The
manufacturer of any outlet fittings, such as a shower valve,
may require a lower maximum pressure. The pressure
reduction must take account of all fittings connected to the
DHW system.
6.9
Showers
1. If a shower control is supplied from the appliance it
should be of the thermostatic or pressure balanced type.
Thermostatic type shower valves provide the best comfort
and guard against water at too high a temperature. Existing
controls may not be suitable - refer to the shower valve
manufacturer.
6.10
Hard Water Areas
1. If the area of the installation is recognised as a HARD
WATER AREA then a suitable device should be fitted to
treat the mains water supply to the boiler. Contact your
Water Distribution Company for advice on suitable devices.

Condensate Drain (see section 7.7) (Fig. 23)
1. Using the short piece of rubber hose supplied, connect the
condensate drain pipework to the boiler condensate trap
outlet pipe. When connecting the hose, ensure that the
condensate sump is not inadvertently unscrewed,
Ensure the discharge of condensate complies with any
national or local regulations in force (see British Gas
“Guidance Notes for the Installation of Domestic Gas
Condensing Boilers” & HHIC recommendations).
2. The hose will accept 21.5mm (3/4in) plastic overflow pipe
which should generally discharge internally into the household
drainage system. If this is not possible, discharge into an outside
drain is acceptable.
