Automated UFH


Recommended Posts

I happen to turn the radio off whilst I was standing next to the ufh manifold . Made a short gushing noise - like it was taking on water ; this correct ? . I assumed it would be like a conventional gas boiler and rads I.e just the same water circulating ...

As it was quiet it’s the 1st time I’ve heard it . Wasn’t the pump - that stayed at the same speed .

Just wondering ....

Tidy.............I can hear @Onoff tearing his hair out ?

I’m going to box it in . It’s hard to make it all neat without being sad and shortening every cable . It’s easier like this to locate a particular cable in event of an issue .

As I’m sure you are aware my view is “ if you don’t see it who gives a (expletive deleted) “ - not applicable to ocd people of course

No blending valve and manifold pump?

I’m afraid that conversation has happened before . The installer recommended on here countless times doesn’t think it’s necessary ( blending valve )

Ok to get rid of the air permanently, isolate the manifold and open the top drain valve. Then remove the brass bleed valve head and replace it with one of the Aladdin automated UFH bleed valves. Then repressurise the system, bleed the top rail using the pin and it will self bleed the remaining air over a few hours running.

Erm ! Overload ?

That's going to be my new mantra. At the end of the day nobody cares how neat it is as long it works and if a paying job as long as they can invoice it. Better to do 10 sh!t looking jobs like that than one neat and tidy one. So what if the next person who looks at it thinks "What c**t did this?" He'll be the one remembered as taking an age to sort the problem not the one who did the job in record time. Better still if you can save on materials like cable ties and bootlace ferrules. Even better if the job then fails due to a dodgy connection, the customer will pay once again...and again. 

 

It's all about the coin ?

Don't forget to put the cables under the cable clamps.

I will ! . Just leaving it ‘exposed ‘ until I’m convinced it all works .

House is so well insulated it’s still 19 degrees even though I turned them off at noon . Some HA code should turn them on once temp drops ( just as a test )
