Our training centre has 27 different appliances (live, simulated live and all others are flued) Flues consist of; Flexi liner, pargeted open flues, Furan Flex lined, Twin wall, Industrial extracted systems, and biomass flues.
- Aga Stretton inset stove to flexi liner.
- Aga Little Wenlock stove to twin wall.
- Replica Victorian Cast Iron insert to unlined flue.
All flues are in a front room environment and everybody who goes through this assessment room will experience soot within the flue, as most training centres who only use a live flue, will experience soot on the first sweep only.
The faults room has a dual purpose; first is so every sweep looks and can identify faults with installations and flue issues. The second is for completion of the Oftec Dry lining course (OFT15-108D). The room has a large number of appliances and flues.
Here are a few of the comments from our previous training courses.
The Power Sweeping Course was the most informative and practical training I have had in 3 years as a sweep and that goes beyond the power sweeping aspect, the general practical tips were quite superb. I shall be purchasing the Rodtech equipment.

"Hi Tony Bob and Martin,
Even though l have been power sweeping for 3 years approximately, the tips I picked up were priceless and will make my job much easier, also l thought the course was very knowledgeable and great value for money I have only praise for the course, no criticism at all, all I can say is, power sweeping is the way forward.
"Hello to all the team at Rodtech
I have been sweeping chimney's for many years now and always thought I was doing a good job. but after attending your coarse for power sweeping and doing it hands on, my first reaction was WOW
I wish this system of sweeping was about 12 years ago this system of sweeping does work much better and removes much more than the old way of sweeping. The power sweeping coarse on the day was very enjoyable friendly and informative. it is also my opinion that all sweep's should be using this way of sweeping and or will be in the near future.
Regards and good luck to all the team at Rodtech.

Used your system on my flues today. I thought they were clean as I swept them in May and haven't used them since. I had clouds of soot and dust streaming from the chimney as if I had lit a fire and tar rattling down the liner. A really good system and so fast too.
I shall be ordering some more bits in the future.

The power sweeping equipment looks and handles really well, I thought the camera system was fantastic, I liked the fact there was no hard sell on the day, not that you needed to the product sells its self. Once again many thanks to you guys for a great day.
A Smart Sweep"
