2.2 Any quotation for the Powerflush is given on the basis that a binding contract shall only come into existence in accordance with clause 2.1.
2.3 Where we do not carry out an inspection of your central heating system before giving you a quotation, we will be relying on the information provided by you in giving
this quotation. Should this information be inaccurate or if following an inspection of your central heating system we are unable to offer this product for any reason, we may
increase the price or cancel this contract as a result. If we increase the price, we will tell you as early and as clearly as possible.
2.4 You must pay the price in full upon completion of the Powerflush on the same working day as the powerflush was carried out. We will endeavour to carry out the Powerflush on the date(s) we have agreed with you. However occasionally performance may be affected by factors beyond our control and so this cannot be guaranteed. We will let you know if we become aware of an unexpected delay and we will arrange with you new date(s) to carry out thePowerflush.
SECTION 3 – THE POWERFLUSH
3.1 Prior to carrying out the Powerflush, our engineer will advise you of any deficiencies with your central heating system that may cause the problem with your central heating system to return after the Powerflush has been undertaken. In these circumstances our engineer will provide you with a quote for the cost of carrying out any
additional work which may be necessary. If you decline to have the necessary work done, we may cancel this Contract and you will have to pay us any costs we have
reasonably incurred in connection with the contract which we shall be entitled to invoice you for.
3.2 In carrying out a Powerflush of your central heating system, We shall:
3.2.1 Add chemicals to your central heating system;
3.2.2 sometimes remove your central heating pump on open vent or sealed central heating systems and check it’s condition. We will tell you if it needs replacing and provide a quote for us to do this;
3.2.3 Use a Kamco powerflush machine or a profush powerflush machine to flush through each radiator and section of your central heating system including the boiler;
3.2.4 Add an inhibitor to your central heating system once the work has been completed, which will help to prevent future corrosion inside the central heating System.
3.3 When carrying out the Powerflush, We will:
3.3.1 take reasonanble care to keep yoir premises clean :
3.3.2 take reasonable care to avoid disruption at your premises;
3.3.3 remove all waste material;
3.3.4 clean up after ourselves.
3.5 Whilst we will use all reasonable endeavours to discover any deficiencies with your central heating system before carrying out the Powerflush, we are not responsible
for any damage caused by the Powerflush as a result of any faulty components and equipment in your central heating system , poorly made joints this being especially in respect of plastic push fit joints wich can come apart if not correctly installed or have not been installed with inserts as per manufacture recommendations or compression joints not fitted correctly or badly soldered copper joints -pin-holed radiators caused by internal or external corrosion or faulty radiators defects in metal etc – old leaking radiator valves or leaking central heating pump valves or any leaking gate valves or any leaking hot water cylinders or leaking faulty coils in indirect cylinders any leaking feed and expansion tanks or any leaking in central heating pipes under floors or walls in your home or premises- leaking central heating systems pipes and manifolds and joints in central heating pipes are mostly under floors or walls and we have no way of knowing how good any central heating system installation is until we actually start the powerflush process so we can not be held responsible for any leaks or any water damage from leaks to carpets or furnishings floors or walls or electrical equipment or any damage in your home caused by leaks before or after the powerflush process.
3.6 PLASTIC PIPED SYSTEMS WARNING plastic piped central heating systems : prior to any powerflush booking we will ask you if you are aware of any plastic pipes leading to radiators or radiator valves or if you are aware of any plastic central heating pipes under your floors or walls plastic piped systems are not always successfully powerflushed as they get so badly blocked with corrosion that powerflushing may just not solve the problem with your central heating system! Also if the plastic pipes have not been installed correctly ie missing inserts not pushed home joints ,leaking o rings etc the joints may actually come apart upon applying the increased flow via the powerflushing process so you will always be asked this in my questions before any booking of the powerflush process ,and i may also sometimes advise to actually have the system repiped in a better material mainly being copper pipe ! upon my recommendations and warning if you decide to go ahead and want to try the powerflush process with your plastic piped central heating system full payment for the powerflush will still be due even if the powerflush process is not succesfull ! also any leaks from plastic pipe joints or manifolds or any damage from leaks to your property from plastic pipes or joints we will not be held responsible in any way as prior warning have been given as above in section 3.6
3.7 underfloor heating mainly comprises of plastic pipes due to the nature of these instalments sometimes these pipes are crushed under the floor covering and also as we can not see the pipes apart from possibly with a thermal cameras we have no way of knowing how good the intstallation is or how good the joints are of the installation so we can not be held responsible for any leaks or damage to any property or furnishings including carpets floor coverings being wood/tile carpet etc
3.8 Boilers sometimes but very rare boiler heat exchangers may not be possible to clear with powerflushing ,Boilers nearing end of life can possibly have leaking or faulty heat exchangers or other components if we notice this we will inform you at the time of powerflushing we are not responsible for any boiler leaks or boiler heat exchanger failures during our powerflush service if your boiler heat exchanger fails that is because your boiler heat exchanger or components may be nearing the end of their working life no flushing of the central heating system boiler woud cause the boiler heat exchanger to leak unless it was faulty and nearing end of life before the actual powerflush process we woud have no way of knowing this before we powerflushed or possibly even after we powerflushed the central heating system ,powerflushing only removes sludge corrosion and debris ,obviously some boilers are badly blocked and do clear and come back to life after the powerflush process but if any leaks appear it is solely because of the corrosion that has happened prior to the powerflush process and we can not be held liable in any way for any boiler failures during or after the powerflush process
