    Bosch Dishwasher - Clean Metering Tank?

    I have a Bosch integrated dishwasher (SMV50C00GB) which is about 5 or 6 years old. It completes the cycle perfectly but we have a small amount of water that ends up under the dishwasher after every cycle (i.e. in the tray that also contains the anti-flood float and switch). I have traced it...

    Need advice on Insulation - Celotex, Kingspan or Polystyrene

    I'm reviving this thread as something has come to light that I just want to check. I completed the subfloor last December, basically it's a timber frame laid onto an extra DPM which is on top of my original concrete garage floor (the room was a garage conversion). It is a solid floor, not a...

    Need advice on Insulation - Celotex, Kingspan or Polystyrene

    Thanks, the skirting is already off. Does Celotex compress a little if required? If I go for 90mm then it may protrude above the timber frame a little in a few places because the floor is slightly raised at the edges (the 4x2 bearers have been trimmed to account for this). Would it...

    Need advice on Insulation - Celotex, Kingspan or Polystyrene

    Thanks for your help, may go for 90mm yes. Should I use duct tape to seal the gaps, and how high up the sides should I have my DPM?

    Need advice on Insulation - Celotex, Kingspan or Polystyrene

    I'm looking for some help with deciding which insulation type to go for in our sitting room. It was formerly half a double garage and was converted a few years back - but the subfloor consists of 47 x 100 bearers (mostly cut to 90mm), no cross pieces, and 50mm polystyrene insulation which has...

    Ideal Elan 40F Boiler Casing sealer

    When the BG engineer was here he was on the phone to his mate, who I found out was the sales guy in the area....need I say more? He told me the part was obsolete and couldn't be sourced - which may be true if you're a big fat inefficient company like BG - but I found a geniuine ideal part on...

    Ideal Elan 40F Boiler Casing sealer

    Had exactly the same recently with British gas with our Elan boiler. In the end a reputable local firm (Boilercare, Hinckley) fitted a universal seal - no problems since. I'd suggest giving Boilercare a call, ask for Tony, to find out where to source the universal seal from. I haven't got...

    Ideal Elan 2 Boiler - Case seal

    Thanks for your reply. Miraculously I have managed to source a seal, from a Parts Center branch, they have one left on the shelf. It is for an Elan 80NF, ours is the 60F but I've spoken to Ideal and they think it will fit as it is essentially the same case, just a more powerful heat...

    Ideal Elan 2 Boiler - Case seal

    Hi, this is my first post on here, what a great forum it is! We've just had our gas boiler (Ideal Elan 2) serviced by British Gas Homecare, and they have condemned it due to the combustion case seal not providing a sufficient seal. The engineer did the 'match test' all the way round the...
