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.
46
CORGI operate 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Benchmark Logbook is being withdrawn.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.
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.

2. The flow of water will operate the DHW flow switch
which causes 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.

SYSTEM DETAILS
Information
1. The Potterton Performa 24 Eco HE 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 which
should be used following the flushing agent
manufacturer’s instructions.
• System additives - corrosion inhibitors and flushing
agents/descalers should be suitable for aluminium and
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 the Potterton Helpline.
6.3
Bypass
1. The boiler is fitted with an automatic integral
bypass.
6.4
System Control
1. The boiler is designed for use in a heating system
that incorporates external controls, i.e. a minimum of
a timer device.
2. An integral electro-mechanical or electronic timer is
available as an optional extra.
3. For optimum operating conditions and maximum
economy the fitting of a programmable thermostat is
recommended.

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.
6.6
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. 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
Pressure Relief Valve (Fig. 9)
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.
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 or causes damage to wiring or
electrical components. The end of the pipe should
terminate facing down and towards the wall.
Fig. 9
Discharge Pipe
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.

3. A single check valve must be fitted as shown in
Fig. 10 to prevent backflow to the supply pipe and to
ensure the efficient operation of the expansion vessel
which is required to accommodate the thermal
expansion of the water.
4. When the domestic water system includes any
device which prevents water expanding back
towards the supply (check valve, loose jumpered
stopcock, water meter, water treatment device) then
an expansion vessel must be fitted (eg. Zilmet 160ml,
R1/2 15bar).
5. If the hot water expansion is not provided for, then
high pressures can develop which may result in
damage to fittings and devices on the system.
6. 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.
