Good value for peace of mind
on 10 August 2012
First off, don't expect too much from this product. If your boiler suddenly develops a fault in the night and starts belching out CO, this little tab isn't going to be much help. There's no alarm or warning that will sound. So if you want 100% peace of mind, get one of the £20-£30 electric alarms which monitor rather like a smoke alarm.
HOWEVER, if you just want something to keep and eye on to monitor things, this is ideal. I have it stuck next to my boiler and every time I go into my utility room I take a look and make sure it's not black.
This isn't the ultimate solution to preventing CO poisoning but it is 100 times better than not having anything at all. At least I would know fairly quickly if a fault had developed and could take preventative action.
Ultimately a £30 electric alarm is the way to go, but for a very very simple quick solution that beats having nothing, this is £3.99 well spent.
Be aware that each tab only lasts 3 months so your £3.99 will only cover 6 months.
I'll probably get an electric alarm in due course but this will tide me over for now (I bought a pack when I moved into my new house just to check the boiler was not spewing out CO). So far so good.
