Broxtowe Borough Council
One Council in Nottinghamshire in the severe winter of 2010/11 had boiler lock outs on all 48 properties in a sheltered housing scheme due to external condensate pipes freezing.
Having considered the options and cost, Broxtowe Borough Council specified the Boiler Buoy as a solution to help maintain boiler operation during the prolonged and unseasonably early sub-zero temperatures.
Broxtowe have a contract with Carrillion Energy Service to undertake their service and maintenance requirements, who purchased the Boiler Buoy valve from Plumb Center and Parts Center, Nottingham.
Gary Kozimore of Broxtowe Borough Council said “Carrillion Energy Services have done an excellent job in sourcing and installing the Boiler Buoy. They were able to source the product to our specification from Plumb Center, which had the availability at the right cost. Plus, the flexibility of the Boiler Buoy has enabled installation in a variety of ways best suited to the boiler location.
