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Benchmark Logbook is being withdrawn.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 !!

2. Once main burner ignites the fan speed controls the gas
rate to maintain the heating temperature measured by the
temperature sensor.
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.
8
4. When the demand is satisfied the burner is extinguished
and the pump continues to run for a period of 3 minutes
(Pump Overrun).

1. Priority is given to the domestic hot water supply. A
demand at a tap or shower will override any central heating
requirement.
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.
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.
IMPORTANT: When the selector switch is in the ‘0’
(Off) position the electrical supply to the boiler is isolated.
The boiler will not operate and the integral timer will
require resetting once the selector switch is set to either
Position (i) or Position (ii).

6.1
Information
1. The Potterton Gold Combi HE A Condensing Combination
Boiler is a ‘Water Byelaws Scheme - Approved Product’.
To comply with the Water Byelaws your attention is drawn to
the following installation requirements and notes (IRN).
a) IRN 001 See text of entry for installation
requirements and notes.
b) IRN 302 Byelaw 14.
2. Reference to the WRc publications, ‘Water fittings and
materials directory’ and ‘Water supply byelaws guide’ give full
details of byelaws and the IRNs.
6.2
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 Betz-Dearborn Sentinel X300 or X400 or Fernox
Superfloc Universal Cleanser. 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.
Betz-Dearborn Sentinel X100 and Fernox-Copal which should be
used following the inhibitor manufacturer’s instructions.
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.
6.3
Bypass
1. The boiler utilises the primary side of the DHW plate heat
exchanger as an automatic integral bypass.
6.4
System Control
1. A 24 hour electro - mechanical timer is supplied fitted to
the boiler.
2. Further external controls (e.g. room thermostat) should be
fitted to optimise the economical operation of the boiler.

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.

Filling Loop
Fig. 5
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 models) 155 litres (33 models). 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
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.
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).

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.

Example 3 - Flue Lengths OK
In the example shown in Fig. 4 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 45° bend to 0.5 metres.

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.

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).

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).
3. Measure and cut to size the concentric assembly and any
extensions that are being used.
Min. 2 metres
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.
6. Connect any extensions or elbows that are being used
to the concentric assembly. Engage the extension, elbow
or concentric assembly in the boiler flue elbow. Fit the
boiler flue elbow to the boiler adaptor.

13.0 Servicing
13 .1
Case Front Panel
Annual Servicing
1. For reasons of safety and economy, it is recommended that
the boiler is serviced annually. Servicing must be performed by
a competent person in accordance with B.S. 7967-4:2007.
If a suitably calibrated combustion analyser is available it
may not be necessary to perform a full strip down of the
appliance. Proceed as follows.
Check for/inspect:Evidence of leakage of products of combustion
Water leaks
Heat stress
Deterioration such as corrosion
Visible condition of seals and joints
Flue system and ventilation
Condensate drain system
Operation at designed maximum heat input
Fig. 73
If the above are satisfactory perform a combustion check
The CO/CO2 ratio must be less than 0.004 and the CO2
should be 8.7% ± 0.2 (max. rate) and 8.4% ± 0.2 (min.
rate). This can be adjusted - see Section 15.0 - if the
readings are incorrect. When correct combustion
readings cannot be achieved by adjustment a full strip
down must be performed - see below. Carefully check
items such as the burner, injector and heat exchanger
for blockage or damage, rectifying as necessary. Recheck the combustion. Once satisfactory readings have
been achieved and any other defects corrected complete
the relevant Service Interval Record section of the
Benchmark Commissioning Checklist at the rear of this
publication.
Facia Panel Securing
Screws
Where no suitable analyser is available a strip down
service must be performed as described below.

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.

Error Codes
1. If a fault occurs on the boiler an error code may be shown
by the facia display.
Table Of Error Codes
E20
E28
E50
E110
E119
E125
E130
E133
E160
E193
Central Heating NTC Fault
Flue NTC Fault
Hot Water NTC Fault
Safety Thermostat Operated
Water Pressure Switch Not Operated
Circulation Fault (Primary Circuit)
Flue NTC Operated
Interruption Of Gas Supply or Flame Failure
Fan or Fan Wiring Fault
Pre-Circulation Fault
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'. E50 is shown as 'E' then '50'
E20, E28 & E50 indicate faulty or incorrect 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.
