    Water main pipe size query

    Not sure how you worked out you'll need 20mm pipe if you have 68mm existing? Anyway mdpe pipe is probably 63mm od 51mm Id. You sure it's that big? What you renovating a hospital? Try 25mm.

    15mm to 15mm straight through coupler with male connections?

    Leaks, I should really just get 10mm valves but the thermostatic valve cost me £14, plus another £3.50 for the other end. I appreciate that to some people this is chicken feed but, unfortunately at the moment, to me it's not. So really wanted to utilise these valves Okay try this next time...

    MegaFlo DD210 Constantly hot (unvented system) help needed!!

    Turn the power off immediately. Do not turn water off. Open hot taps to release water until it cools down. You need this checking by a qualified g3 licensed fitter, an electrician could check it out, the thermal safety trips should have operated so this needs investigating.

    Toilet trapways..

    Wow! You've got a small feeling trapway not sure what that is but I'm sure it's more likely to be the soil outlet pipe work and pan connector that is at fault. Not familiar with home base and B Q goods but I'm sure the traps are pretty much standard.

    Close coupled toilet leaking from bolts

    Hi You need to romove the cistern. These type of cisterns fixings are a joke. Best bet fit rubber washers, stainless washers and back nuts under cistern with a blob of silicon. Then place through pan and use original wing nuts etc. It could of course be leaking from badly fitted donut washer so...
