    OP , as long as you can decipher those combustion readings all is good , i'll tell you this , 95% of the so called RGIs on here don't have a clue what they mean. :LOL: ;)

    you couldnt have picked a worse boiler to work on, but because i dont want you to ignore me i cant tell you why, but im sure if you have the MI you will know whast test i'm on about that is CRITICAL to the safety of the poor people in that house, and must be checked by a competant person, if you dont mind me asking why do you have a FGA if you are not a register gas engineer and why do you want to carry out a 30min safety check on a netaheat for £10 you are way underselling your valuable time

    Does your FGI also test for gas tightness? :rolleyes:

    What happens if the boiler is perfectly safe but you put the case back on wrong or leave a test nipple leaking, making a safe boiler an unsafe one?

    What is possibly even worse is that it will be the elderly and vulnerable people who can least afford it who will pay £10 for a 'safety check' and waste their money.

    many vulnerable people can no-longer pay for a full service due to rising bills. Better a bit of a test than none at all eh?

    Who said ppm?

    It would be obvious the readings were in percent, 150ppm :rolleyes:

    Are you gas safe? appears not.

    Petterton case seals were checked with FGA , no splillage. :rolleyes:

    Thank you , some sense at last , surely better to check than not , RGI will be called in when the test results deem necesary.
