The Oil Boiler Technicians Forum is a UK 'TRADE ONLY' forum and as such is NOT open to the general public who are not in the oil boiler servicing, repair/installation trade. Any members who are found not to be in the trade will be removed. Any member who joins the OBTF and is found to be a manufacturer or supplier who has joined for the purpose of collecting information, posting adverts for their own or others gain will be removed from the forum. This is a TRADE ONLY forum and will remain so.

As a ‘TRADE ONLY’ forum, any registration details that we ask for are to ensure that the members are who they say they are and are trade. We do not ‘harvest’ or ‘sell on’ your details to any third party.

Please keep all posts friendly and respect other member's views/opinions. Any member who persistently breaks these guidelines will be moderated and may be removed/banned from using the Oil Boiler Technicians Forum.

When first registered, a new OBT forum member will be restricted to the 'Introduce Yourself Here board' until they have introduced themselves and satisfies the admin(s) that they are genuinely in the oil trade. If they fail to this or do not wish to post an introduction within 28 days of joining, their membership will be terminated. Once an introduction which satisfies the admin(s) has been made, then the new member will be able to see the full forum.

As a member of the OBTF, you agree to post occasionally, thus keeping your membership alive, members who do not post at least one meaningful post for more than 3 months will have their status returned to a new member (zero posts) and will be required to introduce themselves again before they can see the full form again, you have 28 days to post an introduction. A member who does not visit the forum for more than 6 months will have their account considered for deletion.

Above all, please add to and enjoy the forum.
