Hi,

I installed an in line fan yesterday and am impressed so I thought you might like to know what it is.

Manrose MF100T mixed flow in-duct fan.

I usually test these things by putting talc on my hands and clapping them together and seeing if the powder goes up.. It went zooming up so I offered it some torn up tissue and it took that too, from about a foot away onto the grille.

Very quiet. There are two speed options to be set at installation by connecting a wire to either N1 or N2. Go straight for the fast option, it is not noisy. 4 inch duct.

It says 241m3 per hour.

I paid £45 trade inc VAT.

Good.

Agreed... They are a fantastic fan for the money. My wholesalers get fed up with me, as I don't buy their shower light kits, I insist on the MF100, buy ducting in bulk 45M boxes, and they have to struggle finding shower light/vents without a kit! I also find it difficult to find nice-ish looking interior grilles.... There's nothing worse in a lovely granite walk in shower with beautiful chrome taps, jets and rain-head, than a tacky white plastic grille complete with ugly edges from the injection moulding process!

Also worth a note, if you use Wilts, these fans are available re-branded in their Wilts Plus range. Think I paid £39+VAT for the last one I bought from them.

Thanks for the info Zs.

I never normally associate Manrose with being anything other than a basic builders fit built down to a price. I always find it a hell of a job to persuade customers to spend that bit more and actually have an extract fan that actually extracts rather than just makes a noise. I usually use Soler & Palau TD160 or 240's but couldn't get anywhere near your price. Thanks also to Dick I'll have to hunt down the local Wilts and see what they can do.

One thing I seem to notice that gets overlooked with Fans is the source of the air in the bathroom.

You could fit the supertron-deluxa- suck-omatic which can move vast amounts of air but will have no effect if there is no replacement air coming into the compartment. Had it a few times on ensuite bathrooms with no opening windows, where the chippie has fitted the door extremely well to the tiled floor and no air comes in, so the fan is effectively creating a vacuum and no air moves at al causing dampness and mould. ending up having to cut ventilation grills in walls/doors to allow the fan to work.


Worth being aware of.

I have to agree with Zs, the manrose is a great bit of kit. The first one we used in a shower room I tried sucking the sawdust up in the loft only to find the duct nearly sucked itself to the ceiling !

Great bit of kit for the money.

i use the vortice lineo inline fans, i think a little bit dearer but also an excellent in-line fan. they are a good design to for easy replacement at the end of its life as well. Gary

Hi Nick, I tend to agree with you, sticking a bit of loo paper to the fan, then closing the door usually results in the paper dropping off, I've only tried this with small en suite ones . Manrose are reasonably priced fans but I doubt that these small fans of any make actually do very much or could compete with an open window.

My bathroom fan gave up over Christmas, so I decided to try an MF100T, which arrived today. The word is "awesome"! It makes the same amount of noise as the previous one used to (from one of the diy places beginning with a "w") - the difference is the old one it was the motor that made the noise, now it is the suction!

Alan.

It is fitted in exactly the same place as the old one, using the same flexible hose. About 0.5m from the intake grill, 2m from the exhaust grill under the eaves. The air flow is several times greater than the unit it replaced.

Regards,

Alan.
