The new, smaller Rapid-Dose features a pre-assembled adapter and ‘twist and dose’ mechanism that allows easy, hands-free dosing of a system in just 30 seconds. The new, no fuss, mess-free Rapid-Dose cans are available with Sentinel X100 Inhibitor, Sentinel X400 High Performance Cleaner and Sentinel Leak Sealer chemicals, and can be tried out on a no-risk basis since installers who don’t like the new Rapid-Dose can claim a free bottle of X100 Inhibitor from Sentinel. The Rapid-Dose adapter can be used in an extended number of locations, such as via a radiator, male filling loop stop valve, bleed valve, boiler drain valve, and many filters (via the vent pin), giving maximum flexibility to the installer even when working on awkward or difficult to reach systems. sentinelprotects.com www.hpmmag.com December 2016 enquiry number 902 Stuart Turner long recognised the need for a mains boost pump and during the last couple of years have designed and manufactured an entire range of pumps ideally suited to solve the issue of low mains water pressure and flow, no matter what size of property. WRAS approved and supplied with a 3 year guarantee, the range consists of seven models which are all designed to sit neatly within any standard kitchen cupboard and dependant on the chosen pump variant, deliver up to 3.0 bar pressure at 30 litres per minute. In 2016, along came iBoost which is proving to be a huge success. Flomate iBoost has been developed to boost the mains supply to larger domestic properties using high flow combination boilers or an unvented cylinder system, where higher pressure and flow are required.
