    Bathroom Condensation

    I can try this over next few days getting the heating on abit before showers to see if he helps! Will try get one to get the water off walls to at least prevent damage - there is a decent gap under the door (can get my fingers under it!) I always thought it was recommended to keep it open but...

    Bathroom Condensation

    Sorry for another condensation post I know there’s a Lot on this! So we have a fairly small bathroom (1.62 x 2.35m) We had a Vent Axa Svara fan which didn’t seem Upto the job - the walls were all running with water after a shower even with window open etc. This fan could shift around 100m2 an...

    Shelly 1PM Bathroom Fan

    Hi Have bought a Shelly 1PM to control an in-line bathroom fan - am by no means an electrician but have experience in the past with wiring plugs / light fixtures etc! Just want to insure I have the right idea for the wiring - have attached a diagram of what I believe should be just after some...

    In-line bathroom extractor fan 2 vents

    Great thanks again - I could look at a more powerful one if redoing it all but as said the room is hardly large - is it a case of you can over power it and not gain much or is it always the more powerful the better with these things?

    In-line bathroom extractor fan 2 vents

    There is a gap under the door - enough to see light under anyway! The bath / shower is right up against the window which we do also open when in use but we still get awful moisture on all the walls to the point where it’s dripping off things so the fan was my next step to try and improve . We...

    In-line bathroom extractor fan 2 vents

    Great thanks will look at them brands you suggest. The bath is furthest from the door which of course is the main source of the steam - I believe some of the vents you can adjust the flow rate so I’d likely need that one open more than the other one which am hoping would just catch everything...

    In-line bathroom extractor fan 2 vents

    Hey Our wall mount extractor fan is really poor, even with the window open - I’ve looked and seen the inline ones are both more powerful and move the noise out of the room so seems a win win. I would put a vent directly over the bath / shower as the main source of steam - but I was wondering...

    Bathroom Extractor Fan / Smart Lighting Problem

    It continuously runs in a low speed mode - it’s set to speed up when it detects humidity. As for the lights - the pull cord is always on and is never switched off - the bulbs always have power going to them even when off. Thanks !

    Built in shower - dot and dab wall

    Hi all, Have a plumber coming in a couple days to do the plumbing for our new bathroom, we’ve started to remove the tiles / plasterboard in preparation- the walls are all being reboarded later on too. One possible problem is where the shower is going is actually a dot and dab wall and not a...

    Cleaning Dark Tiles

    Hi all, A couple years ago had our kitchen tiled with dark tiles with a darkish grey grout, over the past few months they’ve become increasingly difficult to clean. The tiles are not a smooth finish, which I suppose makes them more difficult to clean, the grout looks the worse with bright...

    Replacing Kitchen Sink

    Removing the work top would be difficult with the units how they are there’s a custom made boiler cabinet ontop of it too. Could I chip out a small part of the base unit where the clip goes as the clips attach to the under side of the work top rather than the base unit - wouldn’t see it inside...
