Of course a certain number would end up in a drawer or sold on DoneDeal for a few Euro, but at least some lives might be saved by the ones that are put up.

€3.50 each x 1.7million = €5,950,000.

So cheap in relative terms. Can't understand why some TD isn't proposing this.

Dublin couple die of suspected CO poisoning.

Keep spreading the word lads. These are needless deaths. I carry a few alarms with me and sell them at cost to customers who agree to buy one. Might be a good idea for all of us to do this.

Cause of death not yet established.
But either way it's important to have a working CO alarm.

I have two solid fuel stoves, oil fired central heating (boiler in garage which shares wall with daughters bedroom) and a gas hob.
I have 6 photoelectric smoke alarms.
I have 6 ionisation smoke alarms.
I have 6 CO alarms, three different types, two wired with backup batteries.

My brother, visiting on one occasion declared me to be paranoid. He has a couple of ancient smoke alarms and does not regularly change batteries.
My response: No, we sleep safe at night, you on the other hand should be paranoid.

Good for you. Keep spreading the word. If I visit a house where there is obviously a need for one, I mention it, but don't dwell on it (until next time). I wonder is that why I am not asked to parties any more

No link but this might help
I.1.1 The carbon monoxide (CO) detector shall comply with the requirements of this Standard, I.S. 3218,
and I.S. EN 50291 -1. Compliance is stated on the packaging and also on the CO detector markings.

Just been reading some information. It seems there is a requirement for an end of life warning, timer or sealed battery that runs out of power before the end of the cell life. Those requirements, along with the usual, visual and audible alarms.

I am unsure if those new regs apply in all circumstances. My reading so far, seems to suggest that they apply to new or replacement installs of equipment capable of producing CO.

Yes it part of is 813 and building regs part j that co detectors be fitted with a new appliance.
I've been fitting them for the last 5 or 6 years for local authorities.
With the amount of co incidents and deaths they should be mandatory
