    Unblocking a Heat Exchanger on Worcester 532i combi?

    Yeah I think I need a Magnaclean! and a power Flush :( This is some water I pumped out of the top of my towel radiator so I could put the Inhibitor back in the system. (I had to pump it out because the bottom value was seized when I tried to get it off) There is loads of ferrous partials in...

    Unblocking a Heat Exchanger on Worcester 532i combi?

    well I ran my central heating flat out for 2 hours tonight and it seems to have sorted the problem out for now :) maybe it was just an air lock or it cleared some crude out. I still might flush it with cleaner when I get a change at the weekend.

    Magic white paint mixing brands reaction yellowing nightmare - pls advise

    Thanks, I will give a Zinsser stain blocker ago. Although it is not going to be cheap as I have about 30m² x 2 coats to cover (£80+ of sealer) I will try it on a smaller area first before I buy a load of tins. I have some heavy brown water stains coming though the ceiling from a recent water...

    Magic white paint mixing brands reaction yellowing nightmare - pls advise

    So I'm decorating my living room, have put up a picture rail and painted the first coat above the picture rail with some Wickes Pink to White paint I had leftover from painting my bedroom ceiling. The first coat looked fine but I needed to do a second coat but had run out that paint, so I went...
