Hi. I need to get a replacement flow meter as one has split and is leaking. I can’t seem to find the specific one and can’t see a maker on it. Does anyone know where to get one, what it is or any alternatives? Thanks.

Any maker's name on manifold?
Clear picture of manifold would be useful.
Couldn’t find a name. Here’s a picture. Will take a better one once I’m home again. Appreciate your help.

Some writing on actuator heads?
Manifold looks Italian unfortunately a number of companies that made/imported this type of equipment have disappeared gone out of business.
We have already had to change several Manifolds because of lack of spares.

Here’s a picture of the actuator heads. On the pipe, it says rifeng. Does that help?

I fear no luck. They have gone bust. Can’t get spares. Apparently I’ll need 2 new manifolds- too and bottom bars, and maybe the pumps too. Do you know any good underfloor heating experts in Manchester by any luck?! You have been so helpful. Thanks.

Thanks- I phoned them today! They are sending a part but they don’t think it will fit. They think I will need to change the whole manifold- too bad and bottom.
