Hi

I have a techflow QT80 T pump and was wondering if its possible to locate it in the loft ABOVE the HWC ?

The instructions say "The pump location must be at floor level next to the HWC or a level that is below the secondary tapping that feeds the pump. This will ensure the pump has access to an air free water supply"

But i'm wondering if i can fit a Surrey Flange, anti-gravity loop and then manual air vents before the pump in the loft, would this work ?

Cheers,
Adam

Hi i'm sorry to say you can't put that pump above the cylinder as its designed for water to fall into it and be pushed out it wont suck it up my friend got one cheap off eBay and we tried, the cold water worked but the hot kept sucking in air (despite having a tech flange and anti gravity loop) until we re positioned it .
