Seems like an ok deal. Is there anything a bit cheaper out there?
#3
Postage (I think about £3.95 last time I used them) belts the price up for online puirchase, but fine if you can get one instore.
#4
The more expensive Kidde and SF Detection/Honeywell alarms come out particularly well in reviews, but better this than none at all.

Yes because when it comes to the lives of your family £9.99 is a bit pricey.

Sounds like a great price, I've been meaning to get one, I'll pop to the high street and pick one up.

In that case, you can buy one of these off me for your families worth. :)

With that argument you could sell a loaf of bread for 100 pounds - I bet you die faster without food than without a smoke detector.

This isn't a smoke detector :whistling:

It brings the other argument up.
People with families buy home insurance, car insurance, appliance insurance & even pet insurance but rarely life insurance to protect their families if something happened to them.
Not spending £9.99 on a carbon monoxide detector if you have a gas boiler is selfish.

Lucky you :)

We live in 'poor' England where we tax payers

1. Pay NHS prescription charges
2. Pay NHS hospital parking charges including parking at A&E
3. Get only smoke detectors for free
4. Pay for eye tests
5. Pay for school meals
6. Pay £3k+ uni fees

Anyone talking devolution ? :roll:

One side of the arguement people havn't looked at though... lets view it from a mastercard perspective:

Price of a CO detector: £10
Price of coming home from the pub and NOT being nagged by the other half/kids:Priceless

I'm at uni and im happy to be paying 3k a year. I'd rather pay more (and no - my family has no money, I get a loan from the government like everyone else), The cheaper it is = the more people go = the less value my degree carries. At a recent graduate talk I was told that a first in history from Lancaster "isn't worth as much as you'd think" in the careers market... 20 years ago I would have paid less (smart lad, woulda got a better scholarship than I get now no bother) and been assured a good job at the end, no problem.

The other side of the coin is that loads of idiots go to university now to do POINTLESS degrees (e.g. computer games design at UCLAN, etc), getting the same loans from the government, just to stave off getting a job. A horrific ammount of people these days can't even get a decent set of A-levels but somehow manage to get onto a degree, get 3 years of loans (and GRANTS!!) from the government, and contribute nothing to society afterwards. I have friends like this, many actually, from Blackpool - what a farce. Discourage these people from wasting going to uni, its not doing any of the people who should be there any good...

Aware im going to get shouted down for this post, but meh, it's an internet forum and annonymous opinion is law :-D

With one of these, do you need to keep your smoke alarm, or does a carbon monoxide alarm work as both CO and Smoke detector? :?

Go sniff your boiler. I know CO is odorless but give it a good dozen deep breaths just to be sure.

For such a smart lad your spelling is pretty poor. Just for future reference none of the following are words; ammount, annonymous, afterwards and im.

And? :thinking: I know alot of friends who cant spell too well (like me) and yet they're aero/civil/space engineers (either master or already in a job). Its not a requirement to create great things.

Besides this is an internet forum.. who honestly cares? Dont be a troll.

I agree that some form of advice is required if a person's post is literally illegible or maybe that's illiterally illegible. I am far from a perfect English speaker, if I understand what a person is trying to convey then I don't take umbrage with their lack of perfect grammar.

Back on topic, is there any way of testing these alarms? It's obvious how to test a smoke alarm. I would think it equally important that a CO alarm could be tested. Pressing a button on the unit and hearing a beep gives me somewhat a false sense of security. How do I know these cheap CO alarms will actually detect dangerous levels of CO? Just a thought.

Wow, thanks for your response! And I am sorry if my poor spelling offended you, I wrote the post very quickly and didn't spend any time checking over it. I'm sure you're right though, and a few typo's must surely mean that I am not intelligent.

Would you care to formulate an actual argument? And remember, each to their own opinion. I'll respect yours even if you won't respect mine :thumbsup:

edit: forgot to add, being a student (doing my masters at the moment) I live in halls of residence and so don't have access to a boiler.

As to the 'language' issues discussed in urbandictionary, I would be more impressed with these if the underlying arguments were better constructed and the comments themselves better written.

A CO alarm is totally different from a smoke alarm (and neither is a substitute for the other) but they do both usually have a similar monitoring or test facility. Either a blinking LED to show all is well (battery level OK etc) or a test button which will establish whether the ''siren' is working. Both types of alarm are made to a British Standard and can be assumed to work properly unless damaged or abused.

Or are you expecting some sort of detector of a detector to be included - which will be triggered if the CO decetector itself fails - and where do you go from there, into infinity? When eons ago I were a lad at infants school (no apostrophe needed there - descriptive, not possessive - we had an apt saying quis custodiet ipsos custodes. Literally. 'who will guard the guards themselves?'. Think about it!

I may be wrong, but I think the more literal translation is "who will watch the watchmen", but I could be wrong!

Not really; the more literal translation is as I gave it (and bear in mind 'ipsos' = 'themselves' should be included) but yours is a very common and perfectly sensible translation - and there are a number of others which convey a similar if subtly different meaning, e.g. 'who polices the police?'. Wikipedia (albeit not infallible) more or less agrees with me.
