Superb !
10 Jan 2015
By Sparkytheplumber

" Really impressed with the LP522 programmer which was straightforward to fit in my case as the wired unit that sits on the wall was the same manufacturer and a direct fit.
Does exactly what it should do and does it well and without asking for help.
The image on the screwfix website when I wrote this review was out of date, but the LP522 has the boost feature as well as advance (with a choice of 1,2 or 3 hours boost) which was a big plus for me.
Never had an issue with Screwfix, always great service, nearly always have the part in stock, and prices are always the best!

" Purchased this to replace a faulty programmer.
The unit fitted straight onto the back plate with no need to alter wiring.
As soon as it was powered up it was operational I did not even have to set the time or day

Easy Peasy!!!!!

By Gamazing

" Fitting this was a doddle. I am woman who cant put a plug on! I just upgraded from LP241 and the wiring was exactly the same, The new programmer just clipped onto the wiring that was on the electrical panel in my tiled wall. no screw driver was required only to take of the old programmer of. An electrician would have charged me £50 for a 2 minute job! I upgraded so i could have the use the 'boost' function when I wanted to take the chill of.... "

" Programmer was easy to fit, fitted straight on to the back plate of the previous model (tempus 7). The old model showed the time of the next switching, on if off and off if on, I was disappointed this facility is not on the new model. "

Compact and versatile
9 Oct 2014

" I upgraded from an older version and fitting the new programmer was no trouble at all. The 'boost' function is a great idea as opposed to the Advance button. A 24 hr clock rather than the am/pm would have made programming less confusing. "

" This range of Drayton programmers has always been pretty good. This particular unit though had a loose lower flap which would not stay up at all. Screwfix were excellent and replaced it with a new unit. "

CH + DHW Programmer
4 Nov 2013
By Spickles
, Bexley
" Separate control for DHW and CH. Not many of these to choose from.
Simple to install and program. Has the individual control of DHW I was looking for.
The back light is permanently on which seems a waste of electricity.
First one out the box was faulty (switching neutrals) SF were great as usual changed it no fuss.

Drayton LP522
4 Nov 2011
By Totty
, Milton Keynes
" Great programmer, Easy to set up. Great if you want your heating on longer at weekends. The only problem I had was that I thought it would be a straight replacement for my old Drayton Tempus 7, but they have changed the back plate and it doesn't fit as a straight switch I needed to switch the back plate as well, but didn't take too long.

Not my choice
27 Nov 2013
By viking666
, south wales
" Just over two years ago, had the central heating system completely renewed for a top rated system. The contractor selected the drayton controls. Now two and half years later, I having to replace the control programmer as the HW channel failed on timed mode, and the CH channel was already on constant and working thro the thermostat. So without changing the wiring, will have to stay with these, lets hope this one lasts a little longer.. "

Worst timer I have ever had
28 Dec 2012
By Yorkshire
, Yorkshire
" I find this timer too complicated to be of any use, it takes ages to set up and change, when the clock goes back or forward, 7 day programmer, wants ever day and times for that day putting in individually, and then have to do it twice for water and then C/H. Other one in my main home is much simpler and a lot easier to work and more reliable. I am looking to find one with the same number of wires so that I can replace this one. I think the plumber fitted this because it was cheap. "
