2. Install the manifold & pump
The control unit s (manifold + pump) should be always located near or in the room it is serving, or if there's more than one zone the whole unit need to be positioned strategically and central as possible, in order to reduce the length of pipe and uncontrolled energy from pipes passing through the heated areas.
Although the control unit has a built-in pump with a low noise level we advise not to install the unit close to a bed.
Typical locations include understairs cupboard, utility rooms, airing cupboards and cloaks cupboards.
We suggest you select the Control Unit position at the beginning of the design process.
The manifold should be fixed level and approximately 400-600mm above the finish floor to enable easy connection of the UFH Pipework and to be accessible for maintenance and servicing in the future.
