    HOT TUB PUMP POWER

    Firstly, I can't offer any advice about the pump, however, I really do think you are going about this power consumption with your eyes closed, I have very recently installed a Hydrotherapy pool for my dog, which is essentially a hot tub without the moulded seats, it also has additional swim jets...

    Garden decking.

    Update, Be aware when purchasing treated timber, it may seem treated externally, however when you cut it, not all treated timber is what it may seem, here are images of my C24 class 4 ground contact treated timber, which should have been good for 15 years!! So all my treated timber, is not fit...

    Laying a decking over uneven slabs

    You could scribe and cut/plane the timber to suit the slabs, that way you get all the timber to come into contact with all. The slabs, really easy.

    Raised Decking PRoject

    Why not raise the level of the garden first, to reduce the height of the decking, then no need for Planning application or indeed complaints from neighbours.

    Stainless steel rulers.

    You are absolutely correct, rule and rulers, I simply used the word ruler loosely, not in denoting a specific type.

    Stainless steel rulers.

    Once again I'm looking for the industry best, I have a Rabone Chesterman 2' ruler which I have had since my apprentice days, some 32 years ago, and although I still use it, it has suffered over the years, since Rabone Chesterman are no longer, I'm looking for alternatives as good or better, the...

    Hand saws.

    I can see you're point of view, that said, I'm not a joiner or carpenter, nor do I work in the construction industry to earn my living, so to me speed in construction is not a priority, if what I'm constructing could be constructed in 2 weeks by whirlwind professionals with very modern tools...

    Hand saws.

    They may well be traditional crafted saws which do indeed require maintenance, however, maybe it's my age (48) I can remember my father and grandfather owning such aesthetically pleasing saws, I can now see the aesthetic beauty whilst appreciating the craftsmenship skill that it takes to create...

    Hand saws.

    Has anyone purchased or used a Thomas Flinn handcrafted hand saw ? The reason I'm asking, is I'm fed up of the usual Bahco, Spear & Jackson etc etc etc throw away hand saws, I'm looking for quality not quantity throw away, the amount I've thrown away, would have purchased several handcrafted...

    how do i ask to move logs?

    I've no idea which service to call, here's a few ideas I would try, put some slings around a few logs at a time, and use the JCB to carry them in the sling, hire in a chain saw, cut down to more manageable sizes, get a crate of beer in and phone your friends.

    Garden decking.

    Thank you Aron Searle, advice much appreciated, to bring you up to speed, I have dug out a 3 x 3 metre area below the level of my surrounding garden, this area was filled with stone crush hardcore, levelled and compacted, topped off with bedding sand, and the whole area paved with 18" x 18" x 3"...

    Garden decking.

    Thank you Andy, not long after you posted, Firestone technical contacted me, as I requested a call back to discuss other technical aspects, so I asked about the possibility of floatation issues, and as the EPDM is breathable besides being watertight, and the given bearing weight of 5 tones...

    Garden decking.

    I would like thoughts on the proposed idea, as my timber frame will suffer from constant wet dry cycles, and during the rainy season, my frame will be almost completely wet from standing in 1/2" + water. Having had the original ideà to cover the deck top face with Firestone EPDM lapped over...
