    I am looking for a heating engineer who specialises in underfloor heating and has experience with Wirsbo 20mm pePex (now Uponor) based UFH systems with older 1 1/4" brass manifolds.

    My self installed UFH badly needs servicing. The the springs in the actuators have broken/weakened so the water wont circulate around some loops and the whole system needs flushing and balancing. After extensive enquiries I have managed to obtain sufficient replacement actuators from across the UK to replace all 12 loops (8 + 4 on two separate manifolds). The mixing valves may also require replacing.
    I also need to discuss/consider an external thermostat and possibly upgrading wireless room stats and replacing the old gate valves with lever ball valves.

    Uponor recommended installers charge £45 per hour travelling time which will cost me £120 before he starts work!!
