    Cleaning concealed shower unit

    Hi thanks for the responses. Sadly the plate is fixed using grout. I guess when they fitted it I didn't question access. A dremal tool and precision will now be required. Then I can fix it using silicone. A job for next week

    Cleaning concealed shower unit

    Hi, I've got this concealed shower unit which says I need to clean the water cartridge filter. It's 9 years old so I was considering the thermostatic valve. I can't seem to remove either! I am hoping that I don't need to remove the silver face plate as this is stuck fast to the wall! Can...

    One radiator will not work

    I will try again tonight. I'm thinking of removing the rad and draining it. Give it a clear out and see if that helps the flow

    One radiator will not work

    Hi, Over the summer we drained the system and refilled it (plumber drilled hole in pipe). Since firing up the heating one radiator will not work. I've gone through the balance and the final radiator still does not work. The numbers indicate the order in which they heat up. The kitchen front...

    3 tab shingle help

    Hi I think I'm being a biff! I've got a roof which end to end is 3.7m. I've got 3 tab shingle to lay. I've done it before but a long time ago. All the videos say start with a full tab. However when it reaches the end it leaves a piece about 3cm wide. Each new row should be cut 6 inch...

    connect beam to 4x4 post

    Thanks I've never used that before. I assume this would be ok with the appropriate nut? https://www.screwfix.com/p/easyfix-bzp-steel-threaded-rods-m16-x-1000mm-5-pack/69529 The only issue is the post is 100cm x 100 cm so that wouldn't be long enough (assuming it goes through one end to the...

    HI, i am about to build a small pitched roof timber structure. It has 4x4 posts and is only 3x3. What is the best way to connect the beams on the corners? I know I could notch 6x6 but those posts were too big for my needs. I am attaching 2x6 as the beam. I was reading that simply bolting it...

    Pitched roof pavilion

    Hi, I am looking at building a pitched roof pavilion 8x 12. I've seen some free plans which had used 6x6 for the 4 post. This seems a bit much. I was going to replace it with 4x4. Its going to have a plyboard roof with shingle. Would you think this would still be strong enough? I was...

    LED Tape light caught fire

    I will pull out the PSU unit and check the power. I didn't fit it so I am not sure what power supply it is giving out. What power PSU would you expect to see?

    LED Tape light caught fire

    Reading another article it says these psu can't always detect a short circuit so it won't trip. It suggests adding an in line fuse to the install. That sounds like it would be worth while to prevent a repeat
