  1. Transfers heat between two separate systems. I made an insulated jacket out of a bit of cast off under floor insulation. Amazing it helped get rid of a lot of noise too
  2. I set them about 18 months ago and they were fine it is only recently that they've started coming on rather unnecessarily
  3. @AliMcLeod Cos the came from China I brought a few spares so I can see the model number 🙂 40-D3GPBT20W220V Brand ZOCHLON Supplier: Zyurong Development Limited Does that help?
  4. @PeterW any ideas how do I tell it is the right/wrong way up?
  5. The moons have aligned and I've been able to access the holiday whilst my son was around to turn the hot tap on! The resistance of the flow switch was: no flow - 24 m Ohms flow - 33 k Ohms I'm surprised at such a high resistance for the 'on' value.
  6. Keep us posted if this works please
  7. While I wait for postie to delivery the new spikes I think the birds are taking the Micky building their nest on my home made bird protection system!
  8. Got some fairly cheap PIR security lights around my house. The older ones are now starting to come on whenever they detect motion even if it is a bright sunny day. They worked fine for 18 months or so. Fiddling with the settings seems to have little impact, though can't be 100% sure I fiddled all the options. Does the ambient light sensor drift over time normally? It is not a major issue just a bit odd
  9. Got a camera inside my porch but the swallows have taken to sitting on it and therefore I've bird muck all down the wall and on the post box below. Easy problem to sort that I thought, I'll stick some nails on it. The birds sit and sh*t on the nails 😞 any other ideas please?
  10. I've only proven this by turning the controller to 'ON' but yep good idea I'll have to wire in a manual switch. Ah that makes a lot of sense. As this is issue is in our holiday cottage, (insert holiday cottage plug here: https://www.holidaycottages.co.uk/east-of-england/lincolnshire/the-stables-in-the-wolds) I have limited opportunity for testing. June is next testing time. Will report back then. Yes I'm not a fan of the screwdrivers at all but it was all I could use one handed (due to installation and time restrictions) and I'm very curious to know what a half-lit/dimmed lit screwdriver is tell me. (On a known live, in the same physical location it lights up correctly)
  11. I'd normally use a multimeter but do the installation location it would be a two man job. However I'll try to recruit someone to get a proper reading. Especially as I'm curious what a half lit screwdriver means. Thanks for explanation of the top knob.
  12. One of these controllers is suppose to start a pump to run a hot water feed circuit loop when a dip water pressure occurs when a tap opens. However nothing happens. The sensor seems to react, in that a electrical screw driver lights up when the tap is open. But note the screwdriver is dimly lit all the time. The controller is set on Wu and 10 seconds. What function does the top switch do? The data sheet says this is the 'time adjusting knob' but it seems to have no effect. Switching the unit to 'On' and the bottom led comes on and the pump runs.
  13. I'm glad to report the new Salus units are working perfectly. Took 20 mins for the bathroom to go from 16 to 19.5 degrees - was taking 36 hours before!
