Veissman boiler service.

Hi all
What does a service on a 111 involve, got veissman coming next week to service new boiler, well first annual service, just wondering what they actually do?
Thanks in advance.
 
Why have you chosen the manufacturer and not the installer?
Because I have a problem with the flue, no backfall and I have condensate running out to the driveway.
Installer won't come back and correct fault so I don't have anything confidence in him.

I don’t think the manufacturers engineer will sort out the flue if that’s what you are asking?

I know but I don't have the confidence thats the installer will do a thorough job, dont want a shoddy job.

Or to put it another way, if he made an arse of the install he would probably make an arse of the service.
But to go back to the original question, what do they do on an annual service?

Flue gas analysis
Adjust gas valve
Gas rate, flame picture, inlet pressure
Check safety devices
Pressurise expansion vessel
Clean condensate trap
Clean system filter
Visual checks inside boiler, flue and gas meter
Tightness test gas pipework (maybe)
Fill out paperwork

Ideally you want them to do what Scott’s listed but they might just do a flue gas check and be on there way

was the other engineer Viessmann’s approved ?

Ring gas safe and ask for an installer inspection, they’ll force him to put the issues right.
