    My Potterton EP2000 needs to be replace (display faulty).

    Is there:
    1) a direct replacement (that requires no re-wiring). That is, it plugs directly into the existing back plate?

    2) a replacement that requires slight wiring. If so, does the back plate require replacing or just re-wiring of the existing back plate?

    Ideally I would like something from B& Q or Wickes (less than £50.00).

    Thanks.

    You can get most branded ones (except Honeywell) from Screwfix within your budget.

    Anything other than an EP will require a rewire and a new backplate.These EP's were also used as a wiring centre for some systems and it makes the rewire a bit more involved.
