So the most common question we are asked at Showerking is, how do you know what I am buying is the Genuine article, a quality product and also is what it says it is.
This question is asked time and time again especially as you can buy a non tested , non certified Tankless LPG or Butane gas hot water heater on EBay or Amazon which is illegal to use on the UK.
What are the things I need to look for.
So CE means that the a product CE Certification confirms that your product complies with all relevant European directives. It indicates that the product is allowed to be traded within the European Economic Area. So its Safe to use.
However there are some things to be wary of.
Some importers stamp their products with a slight variation of the CE mark that on passing resembles the CE certification. CE in that case means China Export and nothing more. The China Export logo which is similar means that the unit has passes no safety checks, none.
To put this in context if you had to replace you break pads with the genuine article or a fake copy that was not tested that's what you are doing here.
This can be a concern if some one gets injured using the unit or is around when there is an issue. You have a duty of care to make sure that you have purchased a real product.
Fake Gas LPG Boilers only cost $15.00 from China, which gives you an idea of what you are really buying.
