    Just a quick one;

    When filling out the benchmark when installing a boiler, when you use the manufacturers app does that mean you don’t have to fill the one in on the actual paper manual?

    Also, when installing a gas hob I know you don’t have to fill in a benchmark but is it always best to complete a ‘declaration of works’ form?

    Thanksssssss

    No always need to do the benchmark

    And yes also I would fill in one eg working pressures and load etc

    Vaillant sent me a copy of the one I done online via email. I was wondering if they send it to the customer too? It seems pointless to fill it out online and in the manual.

    The hob I recently connected didn’t come with a benchmark, when I checked online it says you don’t have to. When you say fill one in, do you mean that’s the info required on the declaration of works form?

    How does a repair guy know the base line figures when he goes and services it 4 years later and the customer doesn't hand him anything etc

    Also some manufacturers won't repair it without it filled in

    I would fill out a service / llgsc sheet then least you can put all your info and base settings on it

    My guess is that they would send the copy they emailed to me to the customer too?

    The hob is notifyable to gas safe.

    Through the declaration of works form?

    if you give vaillant or glowworm the customers email when registering they send it to them. i also think they mail it out. you can always print it out. but its a failsafe if you fill the book in

    Always fill out the Benchmark. For hobs/cookers I fill out a maintenance sheet and just state new installation. That way you’ve documented your install and the figures.

    Flueless hobs and cookers are not notifiable mate. @Harvest Fields@Harvest Fields

    It’s a voluntary process mate through a declaration of work. But I do it all the time. I know they are not notifiable to building control.
