Great product
9 Apr 2011
By
, Basingstoke
"I've used a variety of motorised valves in the past and they've all had the same problem - the head was difficult to work with and it got in the way when connecting the pipes. This one has finally solved the problem - the head is very simply removed at the push of one button, so that the valve can be fixed in place, and then the head can be pushed back on.
Hurrah!"

Good Quality 22mm Zone Valve

"My old valve failed after 8 years of constant use, with the clip on head fixing it was literally a five minute job to replace."

Replacement Valve

"I needed to replace the actuator valve on an old installation. This one was a direct replacement with updates. It fitted perfectly on the old pipe work and made it an easy job."

Drayton ZA5
5 Nov 2013
By
, Scotland
"Good product but last one fitted failed, (the valve port stuck open) easy change over, spares available for either the body or motor but chose to replace the whole unit.
Good feature with the additional micro switch that can be used to control the boiler.

"Valve does what it says.
Can remove the motor control to help with installation.

Good replacement I hope
11 Dec 2013
By
, Leatherhead, Surrey
"Having used 2 Horstmann 2 port valves for the last 2 years (first actuator failed after 13 months, second actuator failed after 11 months).
Under warranty I asked for yet another replacement but Screwfix quite sensibly have stopped stocking the Horstmann so I got this Drayton . (Cost another £6).Fitted quite easily after draining the system.
Hope this lasts a lot longer, but at least you can get the Drayton actuator on its own.
Pity the Drayton actuator does not fit the Horstmann valve - would have saved me a lot of trouble and expense.

OK economy model
8 Feb 2012
By
, Vale of Glamorgan
"I had two of these valves fitted about six years ago, and both of the actuators have failed within months of each other. The brass valves are still OK, but one of the springs snapped in each of the actuators. The actuator is easy to take on and off, and easy to open for draining the system. The actuator may be easily replaced, but surely the mechanism design could be better! Honeywell valves cost half as much again, but have good reports of long-lasting performance (what you'd expect really)."

Rubbish
29 Apr 2012
By
, Dumfriesshire
"Original ACL item lasted 16 years, new ACL Drayton lasted 16 months, at least it is easy to replace, it clips off.
Do not buy this rubbish, anything has to be better than this.
The item is not in stock, so I am without heating again.
I have stuck with this make because the body is plumbed in and I cannot be bothered to change manufacturer.
If you have a choice do not fit !!!!
