I live in Swiftsure Rd, Chafford and our estate was fitted with Powermax boilers when properties were first built.
Poor maintenance on many of these boilers has caused or will cause them to deliver an ear piercing whistle due to a faulty gasket, part no P507 and must be replaced.
If you have a maintenence contract eg: British Gas, it should cost nothing and I have been informed it should have been changed at regular service intervals.
Thurrock’s Environmental Team have done an excellent job, notifying householders in my road but I wonder how many Powermax boilers are fitted elsewhere.
We are beginning to get some peace now but urge your readers to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice should you or your neighbours have this problem .
