  1. AIM of this thread: Create a strategy, explore approaches and find a way. Central Heating Insurers' - occasionally "advise" customers that they NEED/MUST GET a powerflush for their central heating system, as it is causing some sort of problem (directly or indirectly). "If you don't get the powerflush then we won't: 'this and that' or, won't cover 'that and this'" etc. So you ask, "How much would you charge?" Answer is usually "£1000,0000,0000 x 10" or so . Then you ask: what if I do get this professional power flush, but from someone else, that I could afford/prefer. Answer: "If it's not done by us, it's not to our standards, and makes no difference, we still won't accept it as sufficient." My Challenge to my fellow forum members: What can we, the public, do to challenge this. Are there any precedents, techniques and tips and ideas. Are there national standards, that mean other contractors are legally qualified to do powerflushes to the same standard, a court would deem sufficient and equal, saying the insurer has no basis to disregard the alternatives', workmanship or skills. I want us to find a challenge to the - 'You need it [assume correct] It has to be done by us, or else' policy [unacceptable]. Explore, suggest, speculate - but - keep on topic.
