- Service details must be recorded in the Benchmark checklist which must be available for inspection.
- The cost of the annual service is not included in the guarantee.
- Only boiler component failures are covered by the guarantee.
- If any failure is caused by contaminated water in the system the engineer visit becomes chargeable.
