12.6 Gas rates
The supply from the governed meter must be of adequate size to
provide a steady inlet working pressure of 20mbar (8in wg) at the
• On completion, test the gas installation for tightness using the
pressure drop method and suitable leak detection fluid, purge
in accordance with the above standard.
Due to the modulating operation of the boiler and the
need to check the gas inlet pressure and measure the
gas rate at maximum rate, it will be necessary to force
it to maximum.
• Activate the test mode "P.01" and set the value to 100 in order
to force the burner at P. max. See chapter "Specific adjustment

• With all other gas appliances operating, check the operational
supply pressure at the gas service isolation valve test point.
The nominal supply pressure for Natural Gas (G20) is 20mbar.
The nominal supply pressure for LPG (G31) is 37mbar.
• Turn the taps and appliances off, then disconnect the pressure
Additionally the safe nominal maximum heat input of the
appliance can be achieved at an inlet pressure down to 15mbar.
The burner pressure cannot be measured and is not
used to measure the gas rate.
• Make sure that all other gas burning appliances and pilot
lights are off.
• Check the gas rate using the gas meter test dial and stop
watch, at least 10 minutes after the burner has lit, see table
below for approximate rates.
• Gas rates for both central heating and hot water can be verified
using the test program P.03 and P.01 respectively.

(approx) after 10 mins from cold
In communal or LPG installations where the gas rate cannot be
measured it is acceptable to measure the combustion rate as
described in the servicing section.
• On completion, press the "reset" button to reset the boiler.
12.7 Testing heating system
• Ensure that the external controls and programmer are calling
• Fully open all radiator valves, see chapter "Appliance
installation ▸ Recommendations before installing ▸ Heating
• Activate the C.H. function on the appliance's control panel.
• Balance the radiators as required to give the required system
• Turn off all radiators that can be shut off by the user and check
to see if less than the maximum differential allowed of 20°C
can be achieved across flow and return.
Should the appliance require adjustment refer to the
"Specific adjustment" section overleaf.
• Allow the system to reach maximum temperature then switch
off the boiler by isolating from the electrical supply.
• Drain the entire system rapidly whilst hot, using the drain taps
at all the low points of the system. Fill and vent the system as
described previously in chapter "Commissioning ▸ Filling the
CH system (Central heating)".
• Adjust the boiler temperature controls and any system controls
to their required settings.
12.8 Testing domestic hot water system
• Open a hot-water tap.
• Check that the temperature obtained is compliant with the
setting on the appliance.
• Ensure that the magnetic lighting instruction label is placed on
the surface of the boiler casing.
GB: It is a requirement that the “Benchmark” Installation,
Commissioning and Service Record is completed and left with the
IE: it is necessary to complete a “Declaration of Conformity” to
indicate compliance to I.S.813. An example of this is given in the
current edition of I.S.813.
