    Garage damp proof course

    Thanks. I've read various things to that effect. Words like "should" don't mean "must" which seems to be where my builders are coming from. The link suggests to me that it "should" have a dpc. Common sense dictates that a dpc below ground level is as useful as a chocolate teapot. So in the...

    Garage damp proof course

    Hi, I've just had a garage built by a very well-known and reputable firm in my area but I'm worried about the dpc. From the inside of the garage, the dpc is one block above the floor. From the outside, I've had artificial grass laid (by the same firm) between the garage and the house and this...

    Wire 2nd security light to run as slave / outdoor cable

    Thanks. The light will be head height, cable fed back through hole in the wall to FCU inside (so total cable length for light 1 will only be about 15-20cm). Then whatever I have to run to light 2 will run inside until the point in the wall where I mount light 2 (light 2 already has a...

    Wire 2nd security light to run as slave / outdoor cable

    As a starting point, I was wondering about trying to get a 4-core outdoor cable, the idea being to use LNE to Light 1 as normal and then use the 4th wire to bring the switched live back from light 1. I could then then run NE to light 2 from the same supply as to light 1, and L from the returned...

    Thermostat wiring query - seem to have extra wire

    ....just to add to that, from what I understood from the Worcester 28SI manual, the thermostat controls should have been connected: Live to Ls (so correct) Neutral to Ns (so not correct - albeit is still connected to a neutral terminal) Switched live to Lr - so correct, but why 2 wires...

    Thermostat wiring query - seem to have extra wire

    Hi, I can't find any reference anywhere to anyone having the same situation as me so I've started a new topic. I've got a British Gas installed system - BG C1 combi boiler (which I understand from my research is actually a Worcester Bosch SI 28 ) and a BG RS1 thermostat (which I understand...
