I received a call from a customer who has asked me to take a look at works carried out by a plumber. He has installed UFH to the entire ground floor of this large property.

The floor is screeded and finished, there are a few loops that haven't been connected to his lovely manifold but I'm given assurance by the builder there that it has all been tested....

I know I should run but the plumber has disappeared before wiring up his invention and I'm a helpful guy.

I will look at replacing this with a manifold, blend valve , pump, and I might have a spare 2 port valve available from the current set up!!

Has anyone seen anything like this before?

I don't think the plumber understood the UFH ethos, that is water running round at 60c will burn your feet. It needs to be replaced as you say with a mixing valve, manifold and stats.

Wrong on so many levels. Strip it out and get a test on the loops. Then install off the shelf manifold and mixing set up.

looks like a dogs dinner and iso valves on heating :)
 
I had to turn this job down its just not worth the stress. Would standard hep20 10mm pipe be categorically wrong for UFH if connected to a new manifold utilising adapters? A boiler and unvented cylinder upstairs semi installed, and needs commissioning. Based on the workmanship so far it's too risky for me to touch. I feel for the client.

Probably one of the better decisions made today.
