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. From 1 April 2005 this
can be achieved via a Competent Persons Self Certification
Scheme as an option to notifying the Local Authority directly.
Similar arrangements will follow for Scotland and will apply in
Northern Ireland from 1 January 2006.
The Health & Safety Executive operates the ‘Gas Safe Register’,
a self-certification scheme for gas heating appliances.
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Benchmark Logbook is being withdrawn.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.
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.
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.
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.
Visit www.centralheating.co.uk for more information.
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.

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 !!

6.0 System Details
6.1
Central Heating Circuit
1. The appliance is suitable for fully pumped SEALED SYSTEMS
ONLY.
Treatment of Water Circulating Systems
• All recirculatory water systems will be subject to corrosion
unless an appropriate water treatment is applied. This means
that the efficiency of the system will deteriorate as corrosion
sludge accumulates within the system, risking damage to
pump and valves, boiler noise and circulation problems.
• When fitting new systems flux will be evident within the
system, which can lead to damage of system components.
• All systems must be thoroughly drained and flushed out
using, for example, Sentinel X300 or X400 or Fernox F3.
They should be used following the flushing agent
manufacturer’s instructions.
• System additives - corrosion inhibitors and flushing
agents/descalers should comply to BS7593 requirements, e.g.
Sentinel X100 and Fernox MB-1 which should be used
following the inhibitor manufacturer’s instructions.
• Full instructions are supplied with the products, for further
information contact Sentinel (0800 389 4670) or Fernox
(0870 870 0362)
Failure to flush and add inhibitor to the system will
invalidate the appliance warranty.
• It is important to check the inhibitor concentration after
installation, system modification and at every service in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. (Test kits are
available from inhibitor stockists.)
• For information or advice regarding any of the above
contact Technical Enquiries.
6.2
Bypass
1. The boiler is fitted with an automatic integral bypass.
6.3
System Control
1. For optimum operating conditions, the heating system into
which the boiler is installed should include a control system.
2. Such a system will comprise of a timer control and separate
room or cylinder thermostats as appropriate.
3. The boiler should be controlled so that it operates on
demand only.
4. Operation of the system under control of the boiler
thermostat & TRV’s only does not produce the best results.

4. The sealed primary circuits may be filled or replenished by
means of a temporary connection between the circuit and a
supply pipe, provided a ‘Listed’ double check valve or some
other no less effective backflow prevention device is
permanently connected at the inlet to the circuit and the
temporary connection is removed after use.
6.5
Expansion Vessel
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. 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”.
6.6
Pressure Relief Valve (Fig. 4)
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.
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.

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.
4. A remote relief valve kit is available to enable the boiler to
be installed in cellars or similar locations below outside
ground level (kit no. 5121379).

The boiler condensate trap incorporates a seal of 75mm,
therefore it is unnecessary to install an air break and trap
in the discharge pipework.
3. The discharge pipe should be run in a proprietary drain pipe
material e.g. PVC, PVC-U, ABS, PVC-C or PP.
4. Metal pipework is NOT suitable for use in condensate
discharge systems.
5. The pipe should be a minimum of 21.5mm diameter and
must be supported using suitably spaced clips of the correct
design to prevent sagging.
6. It is advisable that the full length of condensate pipe is run
internally and preferably be less than 3 metres.

10. In all cases discharge pipe must be installed to aid disposal
of the condensate. To reduce the risk of condensate being
trapped, as few bends and fittings as possible should be used
and any burrs on cut pipe removed.

Determining Permissible Lengths
In the graph the solid line diagonal represents the
relationship between the concentric flue assembly (and any
extensions) and the 60Ø exhaust (and any extensions or
additional bends).
Example 1 - Not Permissible
If, for instance, a concentric length of 5 metres was required
and the 60Ø exhaust needed to be 6 metres the graph
shows that this combination would NOT be permissible as
the intersection point would be above the solid diagonal line.

Example 2 - Flue Lengths OK
Where both lengths have been determined they can be
applied to the graph to check that the installation is
permissible. For example, if it was known that 2 metres of
concentric flue and 4 metres of 60Ø exhaust were required,
the values could be applied to the graph as shown in
Example 2.. As the point of intersection of the dotted lines is
below the solid diagonal line, the combination of lengths is
shown to be acceptable.

Example 3 - Flue Lengths OK
In the example shown, assume that the concentric part of
the flue needs to be 2.3 metres long. Find the position of
‘2.3’ on the horizontal axis of the graph and then project
upwards to the solid diagonal line. This is represented by the
vertical thick dotted line. Where this dotted line intersects
with the solid diagonal line on the graph, project across to
the vertical axis. As can be seen this corresponds with 6
metres. Therefore, the total equivalent length of the 60Ø
exhaust can be up to 6 metres. Any bend equivalencies must
be accounted for i.e. 93° bends are equal to 1 metre, each
13 5° bend to 0.5 metres.

General Fitting Notes
1. Cut a hole in the external wall which the concentric flue
assembly will pass through. The hole should allow the flue
to fall back to the boiler at an angle of at least 1.5°.
2. When completed the terminal must be at least 2 metres
above ground level (Fig. 19).
Min. 2 metres
3. Measure and cut to size the concentric assembly and any
extensions that are being used.
4. Insert the concentric assembly through the hole from
outside the building.
5. If required, the flexible flue trim should be fitted prior to
this as it cannot be fitted after. Use the large ‘Jubilee’ clip to
secure the trim to the flue (See Fig. 20, trim shown
dotted), with the screw part of the clip at the bottom.

• The person carrying out a combustion measurement should
have been assessed as competent in the use of a flue gas
analyser and the interpretation of the results.
• The flue gas analyser used should be one meeting the
requirements of BS7927 or BS-EN50379-3 and be calibrated
in accordance with the analyser manufacturers’ requirements.
• Competence can be demonstrated by satisfactory
completion of the CPA1 ACS assessment, which covers the
use of electronic portable combustion gas analysers in
accordance with BS 7967, Parts 1 to 4.
Check the Combustion Performance (CO/CO2 ratio)
4. Set the boiler to operate at maximum rate as described in
Section 15.1.1 to 15.1.6.
5. Remove the plug from the flue sampling point, insert the
analyser probe and obtain the CO/CO2 ratio. This must be
less than 0.004.
6. If the combustion reading (CO/CO2 ratio) is greater than
this, and the integrity of the complete flue system and
combustion circuit seals has been verified, and the inlet gas
pressure and gas rate are satisfactory either:
• Perform the ‘Annual Servicing - Inspection’ (Section 13.2) &
re-check
• Adjust the gas valve (Section 15.0) & re-check
• Replace the gas valve (Section 14.24) & re-check

18.0 Fault Finding
18.1
NOTE: When instructed to turn the
selector to the reset position turn the
selector switch fully anticlockwise against
the spring pressure to the reset position
and hold for 5 seconds to reset the
boiler.
Initial Fault Finding Checks
1. Check that gas, water and electrical supplies are available
at the boiler.
2. Electrical supply = 230V ~ 50 Hz.
3. CH water system pressurised to 0.5 bar minimum when
the boiler is cold.
4. The preferred minimum gas pressure is 20 mbar.
5. Carry out electrical system checks, i.e. Earth Continuity,
Resistance to Earth, Short Circuit and Polarity with a suitable
meter.
NOTE: These checks must be repeated after any
servicing or fault finding.
6. Ensure all external controls are calling for heat and check
all external and internal fuses. Before any servicing or
replacement of parts, ensure the gas and electrical supplies
are isolated.
18.2
Error Codes
1. If a fault occurs on the boiler an error code may be shown
by the facia display.

2. The codes are either two or three digit, preceded by the
letter 'E'. For example, code E133 will be displayed by 'E1'
alternating with '33'. E20 is shown as 'E' then '20'
E20 and E28 indicate faulty components.
E110 shows overheat of the primary water and E130
overheat of the flue system.
E119 is displayed when the primary water pressure is less
than 0.5 bar.
E133 indicates that the gas supply has been interrupted,
ignition has failed or the flame has not been detected.
E125 is displayed in either of two situations:i) If within 15 seconds of the burner lighting the boiler
temperature has not changed by 1°.
ii) If within 10 minutes of the burner lighting the boiler
temperature twice exceeds the selected temperature by 30°.
In these instances poor primary circulation is indicated.
3. By turning the selector switch to the 'Reset' position for a
minimum of 5 seconds when E110, E130 & E133 are
displayed it is possible to relight the boiler.
4. If this does not have any effect, or the codes are displayed
regularly further investigation is required.
