. 4.2 The Company will need access to your premises at all times to perform the Services. You must ensure the working area is clear and free from all obstacles and hazards. The Company shall not be liable for any delay in performing the Service where this is due to your failure to comply with this clause.

. 4.4 It is your responsibility to ensure before the Company starts the Services that there is adequate water, gas and electricity supply to your home and drainage. If not the Company has the right to cancel the contract without liability on its part.
5. OUR LIABILITY
. 5.1 We will perform the Services with all reasonable care and skill, but you accept that the Services (including removing or dismantling existing fixtures and fittings) may cause minor damage which could require some redecorating. This is your responsibility.
. 5.2 The Company will not be responsible for any leaks in the central heating system following the Services unless this is due to our negligence. Should leaks occur you may need to take up carpets and floor coverings (including tongue and groove, parquet, hard wood, rubber, tiled floors or other) and we will assist you with this to the best of our abilities if required. In such case, it will be your responsibility to replace the flooring when the Services have been completed. You may decide to call a specialist contractor to do this work for you. Following our work redecoration, cleaning or removing of odours may be needed, this is your responsibility.
. 5.3 The aim of powerflushing is to clean corrosion debris and limescale from heating systems as thoroughly as possible. Due to the materials system components are made from, specifically iron and steel, there will always be some corrosion debris on metal surfaces and subsequently in circulation. Similarly fresh water added to systems will contain an amount of dissolved limescale, which can subsequently deposit onto systems components. Some corrosion debris may remain in the system after powerflushing due to :
i) System components (heat exchangers, diverter valves, thermistors, pumps, air vents / separators, pressure vessels, PRV’s, cold feed pipes, motorised valves, TRV’s, filling loops etc) may not allow all corrosion debris or limescale to be removed due to their design, position or condition.
ii) Solid blockages in pipes or stuck valves can prevent circulation and therefore cleaning of a pipe circuit or radiator.
iii) Ongoing corrosion due to design faults such as: systems pumping over into feed and expansion header tank, pumps drawing in air or the presence of different metals leading to electrolytic corrosion. Where design faults and faulty components have been identified the Company will when able offer to rectify / replace as appropriate, and there will be an additional charge for such work. If you do not wish to pay the Company for rectifications or the Company is not able to carry them out then the Company will endeavour to clean the system as thoroughly as possible accepting the limits of the system. You accept the limitations of the Services provided in these circumstances and that a completely thorough clean may not be possible.
. 5.4 Boiler and system noises (e.g. heat exchangers kettling and pipework noises) are often symptoms associated with corrosion debris, which can be cured by the powerflush process. These noises can sometimes persist after the powerflush and are not an indication of the job not having been carried out thoroughly.
. 5.5 After the service there can be dissolved gases present in the system due to; the churning action of the pump, fresh metal surfaces, fresh added water and inhibitor. Therefore to avoid airlocks in boilers, pumps and pipework it is vital that auto air vents are fitted and function. The Company can fit if requested.
. 5.6 Where the Company needs to connect or disconnect equipment to your existing central heating system in order to carry out the Services, the Company will not be liable for any damage that occurs as a result of existing defects in your central heating system or existing pipe work unless such damage was reasonably foreseeable by the Company before the Services commenced or arose as a result of our negligence. Central pumps sometimes require replacing after powerflushing as the existing pump having worked under strain may not survive being refitted.
. 5.7 All other warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are to the fullest extent permitted by law excluded from the Contract. Your statutory rights as a consumer are not affected.
. 5.8 The company is only liable for foreseeable losses and shall not be liable for any indirect, consequential or pure economic loss suffered or incurred by you arising out of this Contract.
. 5.9 Nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes or limits the Company’s liability: for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or for any matter which it would be illegal for the Company to exclude or attempt to exclude liability for.
. 6.1 The powerflush Services we offer aim to clean heating systems as thoroughly as possible and cannot guarantee the functioning of boilers, heating system components or that central heating pipe systems have been designed and installed correctly. Examples of non ideal systems are: single pipe systems, gravity flow circuits; pumps positioned where subject to air locking or which draw air into the system, pipework or air traps without functioning air vents; feed tank overflows without necessary clearance above pumps, microbore pipework (especially with double entry valves). Unless the Company has indicated that it is unable to guarantee the Services, the Company shall guarantee to repeat the Services for a period of twenty four months from the date of completion, should it consider an abnormal presence of corrosion debris, providing you have paid all sums due to us in full. Should the Company be requested to re-flush a system by the customer during the guarantee period, or, on the advice of third parties or otherwise, then there will be a charge of 50% of the original price to cover the basic costs, payable in advance. Insertion of inhibitor into the heating system is required to be done annually at a cost to validate the period of the guarantee
. 6.2 All new goods and parts provided by the Company will where applicable be subject to
manufacturer’s warranty. This guarantee does not apply:
. 6.2.1 To any existing equipment at your premises which was not supplied by us.
. 6.2.2 Where you, other equipment or devices cause failure in the heating system.
. 6.2.3 Where the failure is due to work carried out by other third party contractors.
. 6.2.4 Where the failure is caused by or as a result of the wiring or connecting pipes and other equipment to the system being defective, requiring repairing or replacing through no fault of the Company.
. 6.2.5 Where you have not notified us in writing within 7 days after the defect was discovered.
6.3 We offer no guarantee in respect of blockages or ‘sludge build-up’ where a system has all or any plastic pipework.
