Rated 4 out of 5Â by plumber99 Replacement valve
Usually the electrical head fails on these valves, this time however it was the mechanical divertor that had seized. Well packaged and used as a direct replacement no problems were encountered.
Customer now has hot water and heating at the correct times!
Obviously can't comment on reliability but the previous Danfoss lasted many years.
When you consider what's been purchased I think all of these valves are expensive. However I have tried cheaper ones and they don't last.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by marinarat GOOD QUALITY REPLACEMENT
Screwfix had this in stock unlike other local competitors. Maybe could have obtained slightly cheaper elsewhere but not quickly! Used it to replace defective unit that has been on oil combi boiler for 15 years. Note that actuator body has been replaced three times in last 8 years though! All in all good quality product well engineered straightforward to fit - and I will be nice and warm for Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mmurf Great 3 port valve design
Unlike other valves these do not have a rubber parts inside that swell up to get stuck or let water passed but a shoe that rotates to divert the water flow like a commercial valve
Also a very easy to change electrical head with the screws on the outside

Rated 3 out of 5Â by creed Non standard compression nuts
Just a warning so you don't find out the hard way like I did. The compression nuts are not your normal 22mm type, the thread on these is much finer pitch. I found out when I had to take them off while modifying my pipework. I used a standard 22mm nut which tightened up but I didn't notice until it sprung a leak when I refilled the system because of the different thread pitch.
Whatever you do don't damage/ lose the original nuts!
For that reason I can only give this product three stars.
