    Yep new benchmark certs have been coming with the worcesters for a few weeks now. Installed a vaillant last week and that still had the old one but it had prob been in stock for a while. In a month or so i'm sure they will all have revised benchmark certs

    Me & my mate are fitting 10 Combis a week on dole scrounges new builds, sorry social housing. But we're still completing the Benchmarks on the MIs that come with the boilers, unfortunately, the bawbag COW wants a revised Benchmark with the TB143 details!! It's not a problem as we FGA & commission all boilers, but all this paperwork is a complete PITA.

    Does anyone know what's the manufacturers take on this?? If it's introduced at the start of April, are the manufacturers issuing revised Benchmarks for their old stock or what??
    Thanks ladies for your input.

    Just staple a print out of the fga on both max and min to the benchmark cert. all the info needed and more for the cow! Benchmark is just a useless bit of paper anyway. All it proves is weather the installer can read and write or not :mrgreen:

    Unfortunately the Benchmarks are scanned & emailed to the Architect, COW & LABC. So though a good idea mate, the details need to be on the A4 Benchmark

    Kane 425. Great piece of kit, tightness testing also built in, it's great on site;
    FGA & Manometer in one. Also, Bluetooth to your iPhone or iPad..... ;)

    Not sure I allowed to mention it here (nothing to do directly with the CC). But come PHEX it should be apparent.

    If I can tell you sooner I will.

    I'm in the Pub Dan & it just struck me that some of our younger viewers may not know what a teas made actually is???!!!!

    Of course, everyone in the combustion chamber pot will know.

    I wonder if anyone has a copy of the new Benchmark including boxes for the TB143 details? On PDF perhaps or a link??
    Thanks.
