ADEY ProCheck

In an industry first, international water treatment manufacturer ADEY has launched a next generation universal water testing kit providing lab-style reporting and interpretation instantly to a smartphone, enabling installers and engineers to test and treat water quality issues in one site visit.

Poor water quality is the most common cause of central heating breakdown, costing the UK over £700m in repair bills. The importance of testing heating system water quality as part of installation, maintenance or servicing should not be underestimated. The new ADEY ProCheck now makes it even easier for installers and engineers to tackle this issue with onsite analysis of system water via an app, providing instant certified and trusted validation of system health.

The ProCheck test kit and app uses advanced technology that makes it easy for installers to show homeowners the results immediately, indicating whether further action is required or providing reassurance that the system water has been treated and the system is healthy. This also benefits the installer by reducing the need for a second visit as any quality issues that are identified can be dealt with there and then.

So, how does it work? Whilst on site, a water sample is taken from the central heating system and a dip test is carried out using the dedicated ProCheck strips supplied with the kit. This strip is placed on a test card before being scanned to the app using the phone camera, to be analysed and verified. ADEY ProCheck has been tested and the process approved by KIWA Gastec, to specifically look at the three main areas of concern; protective inhibitor levels, corrosion, and the dangers posed by the pH level present. A report is immediately created with the results and actions required.


  • The importance of instant water quality tests

    ADEY understands that it’s often not very easy for installers to explain to customers the importance of good water quality in the system and the need to carry out water treatment in the home.


    On-site, laboratory-style water testing can be an essential aid in helping heating professionals educate consumers about the importance of boiler system water quality and ongoing preventative treatment options.
