1. WHO PROVIDES THE INSURANCE?

The Lessee agrees to provide full protection for the boilers. Generally, your boiler insurance policy and general liability will automatically pick up the risk.

2. WHO PAYS THE FREIGHT?

This is the Lessee's financial responsibility. WARE may make the arrangements, but the Lessee pays the shipping charge from the storage location to the plant site and return.

3. WHO PAYS FOR THE LOADING AND UNLOADING?

Lessee must arrange and pay for the unloading and reloading at the plant site. Any crane charges are considered a loading or unloading charge.

4. WHO PROVIDES THE OIL PUMP?

The oil pump and automatic equipment is generally provided by WARE as an integral part of the boiler units. Heaters for #6 oil must be provided by Lessee.

5. WHAT ABOUT OIL TANKS?

If the Lessee does not have fuel storage facilities, then a local oil company can usually supply a temporary storage tank at no charge. This tank can be located on the ground alongside the boiler.

6. WHO SUPPLIES THE GAS REGULATOR?

Regulated gas pressure must be supplied to the boiler by the Lessee. See specification sheet for exact pressure required by the boiler selected for the purpose.

7. WHO PROVIDES SMOKESTACKS?

Stub stacks are provided on most units. These are usually sufficient if ample building clearance exists.

8. WHO PROVIDES THE HOOKUPS?

Connection and disconnection are done by plant personnel or a local boiler shop. This is the Lessee's responsibility.

9. WHO PROVIDES START-UP SERVICE?

WARE provides this service at an additional charge for all watertube units. This service is optional for firetube units.

10. WHAT ABOUT FUEL AND POWER?

These are supplied by Lessee.

11. WHAT ABOUT FEEDWATER TREATMENT?

Normal boiler feedwater treatment, which is regularly used at the plant site, may be suitable for the rental boiler. Feedwater chemicals may be supplied by WARE at an additional charge. Removal of any scale that might develop during operation is the responsibility of Lessee.

12. WHO SHOULD OPERATE BOILERS?

Boilers should be operated by competent engineers in accordance with the Lessor's Instruction Book. Any occurrence or damage, other than normal wear and tear, is the responsibility of the Lessee. With proper training, on-site boiler operators can handle our automatic boilers along with their existing duties.

13. WHAT ABOUT DISCONNECTING?

This is the responsibility of the Lessee. Typically, plant or local boiler-shop personnel perform this work.

14. HOW IS BOILER TO BE PREPARED FOR RETURN SHIPMENT?

Boiler should be opened, washed out and inspected by the boiler inspector and plant personnel. Inspection Report (found in the Instruction Book) should be completed and forwarded to the WARE office at completion of the rental. This work is the responsibility of the Lessee.

15. WHAT ABOUT PARTS THAT FAIL DURING OPERATION?

Parts that fail due to normal wear and tear will be supplied by WARE. Any labor required to install these parts is the responsibility of Lessee.

16. WHO PAYS FOR REMOVAL OF GOOSENECKS AND AXLES IF NEEDED?

Any costs associated with removing goosenecks and axles (i.e. crane costs) is the responsibility of the Lessee.
