FAQ – FlowMaster
Do I have to install the system(s) myself?
No – installation is carried out by qualified cellar technicians.
Is there a minimum contract period?
There is no long term contract – simply give one month’s notice and the equipment will be removed by BeerTech UK.
What happens if a rented unit becomes faulty?
If rented, any faults are covered by BeerTech UK. We have over 160 cellar technicians available nationwide to service any problems that arise.
What happens if a purchased unit becomes faulty?
The system is fully guaranteed for 12 months, and thereafter a maintenance contract is offered for £50 per site per year.
How many units will I require?
The system requires 1 unit per keg being used. e.g.1 Lager, 1 Guiness, 1 Cider, 1 John Smiths, would require 4 units
What sort of savings can I expect?
Obviously it depends on your draw, but in our experience an average pub loses 26 pints at line clean and based on average cost price (around £1.20 per pint ) you can expect to sell at least 960 extra pints year on year, (over and above the other benefits).
How long does the installation take?
Generally between 1½ to 2 hours
Does the equipment interfere with the beer quality in any way?
Not in the slightest, and as indicated over time we can improve the quality.

How is the data displayed?
The display unit displays the pint totals since the system was reset for each product

How often can the system be reset?
The system can be reset at the beginning of a shift, daily, weekly or even monthly. It simply depends on what information you wish to look at on the XL sheet
What about when I line clean?
The system can be paused during the line clean so as to not affect the totals.
Can the system be tampered with?
No, we provide a PIN number for the system to only allow access to only the owner, manager or stocktaker

It can record up to 12 separate beers in one cellar.
