Rated 5 out of 5Â by TonyQ Great product
I've used a variety of motorised valves in the past and they've all had the same problem - the head was difficult to work with and it got in the way when connecting the pipes. This one has finally solved the problem - the head is very simply removed at the push of one button, so that the valve can be fixed in place, and then the head can be pushed back on.

I needed to replace the actuator valve on an old installation. This one was a direct replacement with updates. It fitted perfectly on the old pipe work and made it an easy job.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by K1DKF Good replacement I hope
Having used 2 Horstmann 2 port valves for the last 2 years (first actuator failed after 13 months, second actuator failed after 11 months).
Under warranty I asked for yet another replacement but Screwfix quite sensibly have stopped stocking the Horstmann so I got this Drayton . (Cost another Â£6).Fitted quite easily after draining the system.
Hope this lasts a lot longer, but at least you can get the Drayton actuator on its own.
Pity the Drayton actuator does not fit the Horstmann valve - would have saved me a lot of trouble and expense.

Good product but last one fitted failed, (the valve port stuck open) easy change over, spares available for either the body or motor but chose to replace the whole unit.
Good feature with the additional micro switch that can be used to control the boiler.
