We attended this site for a boiler service in Ramsgate, Kent. This was a routine inspection and on arrival the customer had no access to the gas meter as it was located in the flat below. Permanent access is required by law to this meter so we was unable to test the gas for any leaks or any other test such as the safety controls on the boiler working pressure or even gas rate the appliance. The customer was informed of all this and is contacting the management company. The flue termination is also bad workmanship and should be cut shorter. A general inspection of the boiler was carried out. Hot water and heating was working fine but a ‘not to current standards’ notice was issued because of various faults also this property was a flat and was a long distance from the meter, a secondary emergency control valve should be located at point of entry to the flat and should full to the off position.
