4.0 out of 5 stars Underfloor heating thermostat to replace my old one., 16 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My original thermostat which came with the kit for my bathroom underfloor heating ( 6 years ago) was not able to switch the "weekend" times, it only had all day. In todays cost cutting times I needed to be able to switch the floor off during the day at the weekend automatically as it does for the rest of the week.

This unit fitted straight into the original wall box and took the original NTC floor sensor. Even though a floor sensor is sent with the unit. The only down side is the way the front bezel is attached to the fitted unit. It easly falls off, I had to increase the pressure of the back plate lugs that hold the metal fixing band, this then allow the bezel to snap in.

The programming was fairly simple, the booklet that came with it is very short on instructions and in the end I contacted the manufactorers Hiwell in China who were very helpful and sent the PDF of the full instructions - see following short version.

""Advanced setting (qualified person preferred)
You press "M" and "Power" and hold for 5 seconds at the same time to enter the
mode of advanced setting. The following 9 functions can be chosen by pressing "M" Symbol.

1 ADJ Temperature calibration. Either sensor, internal or floor sensor can be calibrated to the correct temperature. By pressing the "up" or "down" buttons the NTC can be set. Remember to press the power button "off" to store the changes. This is the same for all settings.
2 SEN Sensor mode IN: built-in sensor OUT: floor sensor ALL: both sensors (floor sensor is the limit sensor)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best way to purify the water in the tank, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried numerous treatments for the tank on the boat and they have always left a very strong taste and smell of chlorine. Since finding the liquid there is no taste or smell. We can fill up the tank, just add the an amount of the liquid to suit and we are safe to drink the water. Yes it is a little expensive but well worth every penny - there is no taste of chlorine.

Does exactly what it says on the label. Yes there is a little smoke from the resistance wire inside on the first time of use but no problems.

I was a little hesitant as feed back on the web said that the DisplayPort was a little suspect but I had no problems. Plugged in to the DisplayPort of the laptop and the other end into the TV HDMI, set the TV to the correct HDMI port and worked first time. Perfect picture and sound.
