Replacement valve actuator
28 Oct 2014
By DarranC
, Camberley
" Came home to find heating not working, stat calling but nothing happening. Turned out to be the mid-position valve actuator not telling the system it was in the correct position. Screwfix came in handy, Sunday afternoon replacement and fitted in about half an hour. For some reason the actuator and valve was cheaper than just the actuator so now have spare valve! The big orange store was £20 more expensive so well done Screwfix. "

Great value
25 Oct 2014
By NotaBene
, Houghton Regis
" Had to replace a non functioning valve and found this superior product at an offer price that was less than the direct replacement. Doddle to fit - two hrs start to finish - rewiring took the time.
Functions perfectly.
IF it does eventually go the way of its predecessor it should be a lot easier to fix as the control box and motor, are as they say, virtually a plug and play unit.
Only 3 stars for reliability as its only been "in" for a couple of days! "

Direct replacement valve
13 Oct 2014
By GC31
, Scunthorpe
" Better value to buy complete valve than bothering with a replacement heat. Fits /exchanges with iflo and bgas (blue) valves.
Easy to fit and been reliable for years as I have used these For over 10 years and will keep using as its a great price for a 3 port valve.

Easy to fit

By GLOVEN

" Had hot water but no central heating so I had a look on youtube and found this was most probably the cause. As it was a replacement I just had to drain hot water and refit all done in under a hour! including having a cup of tea. Now I have hot water and central heating and filling very pleased with myself as I am very toastie and saved £s. "

Drayton 3 Port Motorised Valve
4 Jun 2014
By MyDiy
, Gloucestershire
" Began experiencing rads heating up when only hot water called for. Existing 3 port valve was a BGMVSP23, 6 years old and appeared to be sticking so, rather than spending valuable time cramped in the loft trying to sort it, I decided to replace it with the Drayton MA1/679-3. After removing the old motor assembly, I found that the valve spindle was free to move the approx 20 degree arc so did not have to drain down. Great solution, fit, form and function are identical. I have the spare valve body if required in the future. Highly recommended Drayton product. "

Does the job
17 Oct 2014
By NettPlumb
, Shropshire
" I bought the Drayton mid-position valve to replace an IFLO which had failed. In fact I only needed the actuator but bizarrely Screwfix sell the complete valve for less than the actuator on its own. This is why I have only given it 3 stars for value since I was buying some brassware I didn't need.
Fitting the actuator to the valve base takes 1 minute. If only the manufacturers would use a plug/socket mechanism for the wiring the whole process would take 2 minutes. As it is it is necessary to wire in the new actuator one conductor at a time. Not difficult since you use the existing cable to identify the contacts - just fiddly. "

Good Item - web page confusing
16 Oct 2014
By Roman
, Farnborough
" This is a great product.. easy to install..easy to disconnect actuator. easy to wire.
Unfortunately web page is a little confusing as it shows valve with a Zone actuator...valve actually comes with a Mid position actuator which is better.
Pack does come with both brass valve and the actuator...
Its also confusing at the moment as the actuator on it's own is selling at a higher price than the complete valve
Great value for money

Drayton 3 port valve
28 Jun 2011
By John14
, Lincoln
" The valve part number does not match the photo or parts of the description. This is a mid position valve not the diverting valve shown.
With these reviews you have to score the product so even though I did not install the valve I have had to score all five sections. I think the product is excellent but the wiring diagram is difficult to follow so I had difficulties trying to see if I could adapt the existing wiring to work the valve. If you are installing from new it should be ok. Additional diagrams are available from Drayton's web site. "
