Not sure whether to post on the electrics forum of plumbing but plumped for electrics first
I need to install an extractor fan in my bathroom and am consider the following :


Both are 245m3/hr

As you see, both have equal capability in terms of extraction so wondered of anyone has any experience to share and can sponsor the turbo-tube over the Manrose or vise versa ??

Obviously the Manrose has the added benefit of being available locally from Screwfix rather than mail order.

Thoughts please ?

It can. Very good make, with a ball-bearing motor

But this is the 250 cu.m/hr version.
£145+vat….OUCH !
Based on my bathroom size and building regs needing 4 changes per hour, I make it that I need 2.1x2.3x2.7x4 so 52m3 minimum
I don’t want to go stupid but am happy to pay a little more for better quality but the slt looks to be twice as much
Is it that much better than the Manrose ?
If you have steamy showers, I think around 240 cu.m/hr is about right

….or a missus who has it on virtually fully heat, uses it to warm up the room for 10mins before then taking 20 mins !!!!!

I purchased my inline fan from Denmans, it was a vortice with timer and I think it had a two year guarantee.
