Time for some improvements to our heating system, should be a faitly easy diy job, 15mm pipework, suspended floors and a low pressure top up tank in the loft boiler. I do know that the valves are not all equal, so can anyone give some tips.,

+1 for the Drayton. Reliable and can usually be fitted on the flow or return side.
