    Home electric car point - Help Understanding Looped Supply

    Can you expand on this? I’m simple. These are Henley Blocks I think? And we’re installed by the pod point person.

    Home electric car point - Help Understanding Looped Supply

    Hi, Just had a Pod Point home car charger installed. It was meant to be the 7kw (32a) version but the installer said my property has a ‘looped’ supply to it and that they could only allow operational charging at 3.7kw. I have done some reading online but still a little unsure about a looped...

    Roof leak help...

    Cheers for that, The gauge is 282mm so 100mm overlap. - The redland 49 specs state this is ok for 17.5 degree pitch. This roof is between 17.5 and 20. - The areas of damage you highlight are chipped corners only the channels appear fine. - I’ll double check the tiles are loose I think I...

    Roof leak help...

    Cheers for all the comments. Lots to go on. Maybe I’m being stupid but what is the specific issue with the downpipe spout pointing sideways and not down the roof? Or is the issue it shouldn’t be doing it at all and should be contained to the ground and into a drain? The tiles are redland 49...

    Roof leak help...

    Thanks guys, For clarification there is no flashing on the right side of the roof because there is a gap between our extension and the neighbours wall. The downpipe direct onto the roof has always concerned me but appears a pretty standard thing to do. It’s quite far over from the leaking...

    Roof leak help...

    Hi, Had a single storey extension built last year. The roof is pitched, quite low but acceptable for the 4 velux’s apparently. A couple of months ago, randomly, about a cup full of water just fell out from around one of the ceiling spot lights. I’m not talking a drip, about a cup full of water...

    Boiler wiring question

    Ok, Maybe I phrased it poorly. This is what Tado say: “the power to the boiler should not be supplied through the Extension Kit. If this is the case, we would recommend to ask an electrician to check this and fix this issue, since it can damage the Extension Kit in the long run” Thanks for...

    Boiler wiring question

    Hi, Background: Had an extension done last year. The boiler was replaced and moved. Had a Vaillant Ecotec Plus 832 installed. My heating system is 2 zones. One zone for all the Rads in the house and the other zone for the wet UFH in the extension. Because this was done in the summer I left the...

    Smart Heating Help...

    Hi, I’m starting a Smart Heating project for my home. Just after a bit of guidance. I’ve settled on the ‘Tado’ system. It has good reviews, has smart TRVs for multizones, and looks good. My aim is to have some control over heating in each room of the house independently. My current setup...

    Extension threshold decking / bifold advice

    Hi, I'm in the latter part of a single storey rear extension build to the rear of my house. Unfortunately, I've concentrated so much on the extension it never occurred to me what to do outside. Basically the garden was always a foot or so higher than the house. We had a small patio and...
