August/September 2013

  • We completed our second town hall of the year with a visit to Rushcliffe Town Council for Dae Mechanical of Nottingham: what a view from the 9 storey roof! Cricket, Notts Forest & County.
  • A lovely hotel in Swiss Cottage with one hundred rooms,
  • The BBC regional TV and Radio in Tunbridge Wells for Acorn Mechanical,
  • a flavour enhancing manufacturer in Tring and
  • offer of work in Eire!
  • I never cease to be amazed at the resilience of good quality systems: we’ve just cleaned a 35 year old Vaillant Combi and forty year old Potterton. Why pay thousands for a new one!!
  • Starting a high security forwarding agent at Heathrow.
  • Every now and then we recommend other companies and here we’re happy to recommend some colleagues in the States who run a heating and hot water heating systems business.


June/July 2013
:

  • We have been working at the head office of Russell & Bromley in south London cleaning a 60 year old system. The system was installed very well indeed and we removed years of debris using our non-acid treatment. What a place to work!! Gems included the 1930’s Morris 8 company car still in its garage! And the top-secret ‘left shoe’ store of R&D products!

May 2013:

Commercial:

  • Went to the new shopping centre in Gatesdead to flush the heating and cooling loads for Bowmer & Kirkland at Phones4U. Had our sandwiches at the Angel of the North!
  • Two days at Cadbury’s flushing the Glycol lines attached to a brilliant new (and top secret) product of theirs. Chocolate has to be cooled slowly to prevent it going white and it passes over a 180 metre cooling bed, not unlike a radiator.

  • Finished the Raddison Hotel in Manchester and added 360 litres of inhibitor!
  • Completed a sidestream flush at the Humber Court in Coventry

Domestic:

  • Worked in good old Wilmslow, Cheshire………500m from Stuart Hall and 500m from Ken Loach!! And right next to the Jodrell Bank Observatory.
  • It’s amazing how many over 40 year old mini-bore systems there are still working very well, especially after a good and careful flush: we did 7 in May!
