A Price Guide and Information Sheet on Replacing and Installing a Three Way/Motorised Valve



information
You may have seen these but the chances are you don’t know what they do. They fit over a pipe and have either a plastic or metal box about the size of a baking potato on the top of them with a round cable coming out of it. Depending on their design, their job is to either stop, or divert, the water - when you need just heating, just water or both.

When they “go” it doesn’t always stop the whole
central heating system working but you will soon notice that things aren’t operating as they should be.

Now, there are two parts to these valves, the bit on the
top is the motor, it can be changed very easily. The bit around the pipe is the valve and to change this, the whole thing has to be removed and that usually means the system has to be drained down.
