  1. I added 50mm celotex to top and multifoil wrap insulation to 255 UVC and insulated all pipes and pressure releif valve! Now minimal heat loss over 24hrs!
  2. From my experience keep it simple use a float switch in both tanks to controls all levels. 3000litres minium in ground tank and 200l in roof. Use a floating intake to draw cleanest water, very easy to make using flexible suction pipe, a plastic ball float and stainless filter. Filter on outlets of roof tank that can easily be changed. Mains water back up to roof tank with ball valve and manual lever valve. Only find back up occasionly needed in dry summer.
  3. HI Amuia. Sounds like the control printed circuit board is the problem as this controls speed of fan motors!
  4. My thoughts the above compares radial with a steel branch system which is a lot harder to self install! If solid plastic duct and fittings used DIY components considerably cheaper than radial. It all depends on how complex the duct layout and access!
  5. I also built 6x2 at 600c with nogin and used 11mm osb3 nailed and glued on exterior, rockwool 140 flexi slots straight in tight and then tyvek airguard and 25mm service cavity nternal.

  9. I did a small job wood fibre cut to fit between studs not the easiest product to cut exact tight fit and quite a bit of dust! Would recommend Rockwool Flexi friction fit and easy to cut if necessary.
