ANNUAL BOILER INSPECTION SERVICE

This is a mandatory yearly service under AS/NZ3788. The boiler needs to opened for a 3rd party inspector to thoroughly inspect. All parts and fittings need to be checked and overhauled when necessary, followed by replacing all gaskets upon reassembly. Once up to pressure it then requires a critical function test to confirm all safety devices are operational.
