    Salus RT510 Programing

    I need to set Parameter do4 programmer selection 24hr(7d) from installation mode. When I try and do this it will only give me access to do1,do2 and do3. I can not access do4 to change it, the thermostat is stuck in 5/2. I have contacted Salus but they are no help, all they do is refer me to the...

    Android-x86 DRM

    As I do not use windows, I am trying to watch Chili TV & Rakuten TV using android-x86 on my HP255 laptop. Despite installing the necessary apps I can not watch the content. I assume this is because of DRM. It has been suggested to include DRM libs from fugu...

    Bathroom Tap Jams Up

    I have fitted yet another new compression washer valve which works fine. As I removed the old one I made sure the tap was in the fully closed position. It had not unscrewed too far as I thought. I could screw it out further, (using the splines) but it would not screw in at all. When I dismantled...

    Bathroom Tap Jams Up

    Thanks Kidgreen61 but I always do that when fitting. Is it possible that when the tap is closed the shaft comes too far out of the hex, jamming up initially & then reseating correctly when opened & closed a few times? I wonder if the washer is thick enough.

    Bathroom Tap Jams Up

    I have replaced the compression washer valve on my bathroom hot tap many times. The hot tap only lasts about a year before needing replacing again. The hot tap will jam up especially if it is already hot, making it very difficult to get any water out. Repeatedly turning on & off helps a bit...

    Marley Tiles On Bitumen, Which is the DPM?

    There is so much conflicting information about this. If the bitumen forms the DPM then why should I need to install Ardex DPM1c (expensive)? There is no damp in the property.

    Marley Tiles On Bitumen, Which is the DPM?

    Is it the tiles or the bitumen used to stick the tiles down that is the DPM? We have Marley tiles in our 1957 bungalow. Some of the tiles are broken & some are loose especially near the skirting board where carpet gripper has been removed. We can see bitumen underneath the tiles. We want to fit...

    Toilet waste drain

    Thank's for your fast reply. There is a gully on the kitchen wall outside, this is the rear wall of the property. The main sewer which joins from one neighbour to the other runs along about 4 feet from the rear wall under a concrete patio. Is there some easy way to tell if the gully has 110mm pipe?

    Toilet waste drain

    We are making changes to our 1950's bungalow lay out. We want to put a wet room including a toilet where there is currently a kitchen. My question is, can the existing kitchen sink drain (outside) be upgraded to accommodate the toilet without digging up the concrete patio to connect to the main...

    UPVC Multipoint door will not open

    It turned out that the key was unlocking the door ok, but part of the handle/latch mechanism had broken inside, preventing the handle from working. I got someone out to fix it. They were able to force the handle down to open the door & then replace the mechanism. If I had known then what I know...

    RJ11-CAT5E DIY Broadband Extension cable

    I am currently on cable switching back to Openreach network. If I install an NTE5C master socket myself (where i want it) will Openreach connect it for me instead of just replacing the face plate on existing NTE5A BT master?

    RJ11-CAT5E DIY Broadband Extension cable

    The reason I was thinking of using CAT5E cable is because it is recommended on-line & I already have some. I will use CW1308 if I can get it. Thanks Again.
