Hello guys,

I have searched the google in my attempts to find out why the red cap flow meters of UFH systems are always fixed on top of the manifold, and the actuators are placed below. Could anyone explain, is there a specific reason why is it so? Is it allowed to fix them contrary??

Thank you for your answers.

They can be either way round - it is determined by the configuration of the pump and the location of the mixing valve.

Normally flow on the lower bar with return above.

Why do you ask?

Thanks for your answer Bro. I am asking because this configuration was recently installed upstairs, in my case the flow meters are fixed in reverse order upstairs. Although I don't notice the heating to be affected so far and the weather is not so cold these days. I have no mixing valve and I don't know if it is a must in my case. I'm attaching one picture, manifold downstairs.

Depending on your floor covering type you may need to limit the temperature of your UFH.

Engineered wood and tile coverings in particular are prone to permanent damage if overheated.

Thank you, I will be careful on the temperatures. I have laminate floors.
Greetings
