Worth coughing up for

Every household should have one near gas appliances.

Bought one for £12 last week from asda, thought that was good.

Ye bought 3 thats 21years worth. Hope they do not have a sellbuy date.

Great deal. Bought two for £20 last month from Tesco.

HOT for me a life safer, the batteries are nearly worth this.

Please remember it is the landlords responsibility to have these installed or the local authority. These devices are usually an after thought but are the first one's to save your life in event of boiler malfunction.

NOT true, this is proposed but NOT the case yet.

Correct im a landlord and this isnt legislation yet...all you need is the gas safety certificate which you have to renew every year.

7year guarantee , i would love to know how you would claim on that as the upshot of it being faulty would be death !

Anyone who thinks they already have one, it's worth checking the date on them. They only last about 5 years. Change them if you're unsure.

They do. Most have a dispose by date on. Some say "5 years from install".

HSE strongly recommends the use of CO alarms as one useful precaution to give tenants advance warning of CO in the property. Importantly alarms should not be regarded as a replacement for regular maintenance and safety checks by a Gas Safe registered engineer link to external website. CO alarms cost from £15 and can be purchased in most hardware shops. Before purchasing a CO alarm, always ensure it complies with British Standard EN 50291 and carries a British or European approval mark, such as a Kitemark. CO alarms should be installed and maintained in line with the manufacturer's instructions.

Although not law HSE recommendations are usually not to be snuffed at.

If you're a tenant and your landlord doesn't provide one it's worth doing yourself and take it with you if you move.

Regardless of who *should* do it remember it's your life on the line..

sorry they do have a use by date as was pointed out to me when our boiler was serviced. ours went out of date two years ago...yikes

OP well done

Is this in all Aldi stores, my boiler was condemned yesterday as it was giving out carbon monoxide - no wonder I didn't feel well. The landlord would not get it serviced 6 months ago when I asked for it to be done now it has to be replaced. So scary that we came so close to being killed and nobody would have noticed anything. Everyone who has not one should get one - luckily we just had a scare as the boiler kept cutting out, regardless of price get one from any where.

Ask the landlord for the last gas safety cert. If they don't have one go and see a decent lawyer.

Saw them at £6.99 in Aldi Ancoats Manchester today and thought that was a good price!!

Thanks for the info.
Looks like it is not a national price then

Yes I was tempted at 6.99 the other day

Wrong

Store specific deal then. Cold

Hot as I work in Baguley

Even if it is store specific, it's a good deal for those close enough to take advantage. So it's worth posting so that locals know about it. Therefore at that price it can only be a hot deal. Heat added.

It also gives everyone else a heads up so they can look out for it if they are in Aldi.

I got one of these last year after they dropped from £12.99 to £6.99 in Aldi.
Good work OP.

I am a landlord and supplied a carbon monoxide alarm in my property for piece of mind for me as well as the occupants. I also got them to sign a form that it was their responsibility to change the batteries on the alarm (to cover my ****)

To be honest, these would be a great idea to take on holiday with you too

This looks like a repackaged/rebranded version of the ones they sell in Costco for £30. They are made by Kidde so a quality brand. Great find. The 7 years refers to how long it lasts before it needs replacing (they don't last forever) not a guarantee.

The batteries will probably leak by the time you open the 2nd one.

That signature would not stand up in court. Sorry.

It does indeed look like the Kidde, I picked one up for my parents after their last one expired (went past use by). Usually they will start beeping to let you know the alarm needs replacing, batteries need replacing or it is malfunctioning. However, there are obviously scenarios where it fails and won't be able to alert you (sudden battery failure, cap/resistor failure on power circuit, etc) so its good practice to give the test button a jab anytime you open the airing cupboard.

I also put a note in my calendar when I install stuff like this to remind me in 7 years its due for replacement. Smart phones/online calendars make keeping track of stuff like this so much easier

£8.99 in my local.:(

They weren't on display though and when I asked, the SA went into the storeroom and opened a new box (looked like there was at least another 2 full boxes (4 in a box it seemed).

Took three to checkout only to find they were £8.99, so only ended up buying one.

Checkout girl said £3.99 price was probably store specific.

I'll try in a week and see if they've dropped further.

Will check my local store. Thanks

Rude and lazy to search customer adviser told me that ALDI doesn't stock this product and it never did. 0800 042 0800 is phone number. She even had a problem to understand what does it mean.

Got one of these for my Dad last week, €20 from Tesco Ireland, robbing gits...

They are definitely the Kidde brand and were on sale at Aldi towards the end of September for £13.99

You'll only find them as 'bin ends' in stores that have stock left...usually the bigger stores
I got two at full price back then (they recomend one on each floor to cover for leaking chimney upstairs etc.)

Great price for a branded product if you can find one.

I'm a landlord as well and as part of the annual gas safety check, the gas safe engineer now insists on having a Carbon monoxide alarm otherwise goes down as a safety point on the cert.

My local has them for £13:99

Seems strange there is such a difference for same product!

Its an old September special and I think store managers can use their discretion to shift remaining stock.

Same store if you can still find any have the 'Lifesaver Kidde TWIN smoke alarms micro' reduced to £3.99 (pair) as well. Kidde is one of the best makes and at less than 2 quid each try beating that elsewhere! These are Kidde basic protection for general use, but the price is so low why would you pay for an unnamed brand at well over double this price? Utilises ionisation sensors.
