  1. Hi, I hope this is the correct forum but if not maybe a mod could move this post. I have a problem with the overhang on a couple of my window and door openings. Basically rain water gathers on the outside edge of the overhang and drips onto the cill causing it to discolour and in fact eaating away at the edge (it is a sndstone composite cill). It also causes the cill to become discoloured. There is an external door under the window which has the same issue and there is normally small drip just as you walk out the door. I've attached a photo sowing the situation. So I was wondering if I could attach some sort of aluminium lip to deflect the drips away from the overhang or is there some other solution? One of my issues when searching online is that I'm not sure if I ma using the correct terminology (overhang?) or what the name of the deflector is so that I can find a supplier. Thanks.
  2. That looks like the job! I've been waiting for Salus to come back to me but not heard anything yet today. Thanks
  3. OK, I have looked at some of these but it's not clear if the thermostat part has a clicking relay? How can I tell?
  4. That sounds interesting. Not sure what you mean though, do you have any suggested devices?
  5. Thanks.. Just unscrewed the one in our bedroom and it is a Salus ERT32, 230V. Not sure if you know of a suitable replacement, not necessarily by Salus.
  6. Thanks for the reply. The controller is a German make, OEG. The room stat is Salus. It is connected by wire to the controller and the controller is then connected to the wiring centre and then onto the actuators on the manifold. I've attached a pic showing the controller and manifold. The wires coming out of the wall just above the wiring centre are from the controller, one for each heating zone. Sorry, I think I got that wrong. The wires coming out of the wall above the wiring centre (white box with cable tie holding it closed - catch is broken) I think are the wires from the different room stats. Does that make more sense?
  7. I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, mods please move if required. We have a room stat in our bedroom. But the relay has a really loud click each time the stat turns on or off. It is wired to the UFH manifold wiring centre. What I wold like to know is if there is a silent or very quiet room stat that I can get to replace this noisy one. Thanks
  8. Thanks again. I might try a local plumber and see if he can do this. A bit beyond my abilities!!
  9. Hi Conor Thanks for the suggestions. The boiler is also only four years old the entire system was installed when the house was built in 2015. I've no problem flushing the system and adding inhibitor but I think it is under some pressure so not sure if I can just do it with a filling loop as you suggest. How would that work? Thanks
  10. So do I need to flush out the system or is it OK just to leave it as it is Thanks
  11. I just remembered that the pressure dropped a few times and I had to open a feeder valve (sorry about my lack of plumbing knowledge!) to raise it again. It hovers around 1 bar. Not sure if that says anything to help.
  12. Hi Peter Inhibitor was used when it was first commissioned. It is a sealed system as far as I know. But it is a strange set up as I've posted here previously. The fluid is heated by both the boiler and the thermal store. The circuit from the boiler to the thermal store has the ufh cirucits connected to it.
  13. Folks I took a good look at my four year old ufh manifold today because one of the accentuators was sticking. I discovered that the pin that opens and closes the valve had stuck and there was a bit of rust around it. I got it sorted with some WD40 and a bit of judicious tapping with a hammer and it seems to fully work again. I then noticed the gauges (?) that show the rate of flow and all that are in use had rusty coloured water in them. I attach a photo. Different circuits are different shades of brown. One gauge is still the original clear colour but this circuit is not connected (3rd from the right in the photo). The water is heated via an oil boiler. Should I be concerned and should I do something such as have the entire system flushed out and the fluid replaced? Thanks
  14. I uncovered everything for the photo. These pipes on the top are usually covered with a layer of insulation. The ones by the pump are in an insulated area, the outer insulated casing has been removed. Do you think they need lagging as well as this.
