Installing the underfloor heating manifold

We have finally completed the manifold for our underfloor heating system.

It has taken ages to
– design the system.
– fit the design into the space available.
– collect all the required bits of plumbing from various suppliers and retailers.
– puzzle it all together.
– test it.
– resolve the inevitable leaks.Manifold

Alex is usually quite good at producing plumbing that doesn’t leak, but this time, one of the connectors just didn’t want to hold water. Eventually he discovered a slight imperfection on the shiny manifold part and filed it off. That stopped that leak, but started off another one.

After a bit more puzzling and an added plastic o-ring, all is finally well. We are ready to pour concrete on our floors to cover the underfloor heating pipes. It’s a bit of a landmark.
