    Urgent Question about Lintel

    The span is a 1.2m window, so not huge. Hopefully this shouldn't be too bad then. I like the idea of using the slate to pack it tight, thanks for the tip.

    Urgent Question about Lintel

    Hello all, I am currently gutting out my kitchen for a full refit. I have come across a potentially serious problem with regards to the lintel above my kitchen window. While removing plasterboard, the bricks that were supporting the right hand side of the lintel came out with it. I did not...

    Kitchen Sink and Washing Machine Waste into outside drain pipe?

    I got confused there, I was supposed to say the surface water goes to the same one. My bad lol.

    Kitchen Sink and Washing Machine Waste into outside drain pipe?

    Update: I've checked with my next door neighbour, who has 2 man hole covers in his garden. We were under the impression that mine joined up with his in one of them, but its doesn't, it may join up with his neighbour on the other side though. However, turns out his toilet waste and his kitchen...

    Kitchen Sink and Washing Machine Waste into outside drain pipe?

    Thanks everyone. I won't trust the HIP report just yet and will dig a little deeper. Might have to pay a fee to south staffs water to confirm it, but I'd rather that than risk polluting and getting a fine somewhere down the line.

    Kitchen Sink and Washing Machine Waste into outside drain pipe?

    My man hole is under my conservatory, it is accessible though if I pull up the lino flooring. I did check what went through it before it was built though and it was the toilet waste only, definitely not the kitchen waste, although I'm not sure if the surface water went through there as well, I...

    Kitchen Sink and Washing Machine Waste into outside drain pipe?

    I am currently in the process of planning my kitchen refit, and I'm looking to see if I can change my current drainage setup. The kitchen sink and washing machine waste pipes currently go through the wall and into what was an outside trapped drain (how the house was built), although its not an...

    BMW E91 318i - key fob problems

    Thought I'd update this for other peoples info. Took the car to another auto electrical specialist. He said the key was fine, so I booked it in for diagnosis. On the E91 you can open just the rear window for quicker access without actually opening the entire boot lid, there are cables on each...

    BMW E91 318i - key fob problems

    I already checked the diversity antenna. Everything online pointed to that being the problem but when I checked mine it looked good as new, no signs of water damage or anything. I think its going to have to be a trip to different garage to see what they come up with. Thanks anyway for your help.

    BMW E91 318i - key fob problems

    Been doing a lot of googling and it seems all the sites I'm finding are how to program a brand new blank key yourself, by holding the keyfob down in the ingnition slot for 20seconds. I will give it a try though with this one. The spare key is completely dead by the sound of it but I'm more...

    BMW E91 318i - key fob problems

    I've had an issue with my key fob for my car for over a year now. I've just been too tight to get it sorted. I cannot remotely lock or unluck my car with any of the buttons on my key fob, or even my spare key fob for that matter. I am having to unluck the car the old fashioned way with the...

    Capping off/removing old soil pipe vent on roof

    The old soil pipe is not plastic, it is metal, and the vent is a wire wesh type just to stop any birds nesting or large bit getting in. I cant post a picture right now as I'm not at home, but I don't think the camera on my phone will be good enough anyway unless I climb up a ladder and take a...
