  1. the wabasto came with a timer I’ll look into how that works And what I can pre set. no the calorifier has a immersion but I’m not sure if I’ll be on shore power all of the time.
  2. How do you stop the Webasto cycling when it’s just heating the water ? as I said in my original post and in the diagram, I’ll keep a towel rail on all the time.
  3. I guess my main concern is what do you do in the summer? can the Webasto be set to come on for just the amount of time it takes to heat the water then and then switch off?
  4. Quick question im currently fitting out my barge with a 2 pipe central heating system using a 5.2kw Webasto Thermo top c. Now as most people know and also states in the user manual they need to be correctly loaded. They state 10% more making it 5.7. I really only plan on 2 rads plus the water tank. I don’t think this will reach the required load. Question is can I install another radiator in the engine bay? This will not take up any room plus will load the Webasto enough in the summer when all other rads are off (apart from towel rail). I can’t see anything against it in the BSS regs. See attached drawing if not see in my other recent post.
  5. The more i read on here the more sleeples i get...🤯
  6. i keep trying to tell myself that
  7. Thanks for the replys. This is taken from the RCD website. a conversion of a watercraft which changes the means of propulsion of the watercraft, involves a major engine modification, or alters the watercraft to such an extent that it may not meet the applicable essential safety and environmental requirements laid down in this Directive. The first part is clear to me that im exempt however the second part is not. I bought the boat with BSC certificate however im doing the work on a hard stand in essex so do not need to keep it up to date untill relaunch. I am unsure where the boat will be kept once finished so at a minimum i am working to BSC regs. My boat is not CE marked.
  8. I have a old dutch barge hull aprox 1920, it was fitted out for liveabaord around the 80's. Im midway through a fitout. Do i come under the RCD? or just BSC? Thanks
  9. I come from a petroleum engineering background, mostly maintenance of RAF fuel installations. people have been known to open or close valves that Should be well left alone (unless when servicing for example). A simple lockable valve handle and strong cable tie is something I’ve had to do before and after hearing concerns about valve placemat on here I’ll make sure to do this on the boat also.
  10. “Balance the system Balance the radiators with the lockshields and remember to fit a lock shield / balancing valve to the Calorifier coil outlet pipe.” Again taken from the Webasto manual. I imagine its there to restrict the out flow and keeping the hot coolant in the coil for longer?
  11. As you say it’s stated within the Webasto manual so that’s why I included the valve.
  12. Thanks for all the reply’s so other than not needing the non return valves on the outlets back to cold line everything else looks ok?
  13. Maybe a silly question but how do I workout expansion?
  14. My only reason for not being able to turn off certain radiators is for correctly loading the wabasto. I plan to keep the towel rail and top rad open to deal with this. The bottom one can be closed when not needed (in summer)
  15. This is taken directly from the Webasto installation manual ”Balance the system Balance the radiators with the lockshields and remember to fit a lock shield / balancing valve to the Calorifier coil outlet pipe. Also, do not pipe the Calorifier in series with the spine“ thanks for pointing that out tho as I’ve just noticed it says to put the balancing valve on the outlet not the inlet as per my diagram
