If the models that you sell have already been entered onto this site, you can simply select them without having to add their details. You cannot list models whose details have not first been entered onto this site. Add boiler/stove now.

You can add most of these in any order (except a manufacturer will have to exist as an Organisation before you can add their equipment). The following flow chart demonstrates the most efficient order to add your details (in SVG format - if you can't see it, you need a newer browser):
