    f.75 ecofit pure 825

    Hi All, I've seen a few posts and videos on f.75 error and I just want to confirm if you think I could simply clean up the pressure sensor, replace it or if it might be the pump? The boiler was switched off whilst I was away from the house and during this time, I had also replaced a basin in...

    I've moved into a house with parque flooring which has seen better days. See attached photos. As a temporary solution, I'm looking to restore this to a darker shade such as rosewood or rich mahogany. I tried sanding the floor and then applying an oil wax but this just made it sticky and hasn't...

    Tumble Dryer screeching after starting and only for 30seconds?

    Figured it out, it's the pump - took it out, cleaned up a bit and now less noisy, still needs replacing. Thanks and hopefully this will help others.

    Tumble Dryer screeching after starting and only for 30seconds?

    This is a bit odd, the tumble dryer makes a screeching noise only on the startup for 30secs https://photos.app.goo.gl/Y3VJCoQc843on8qc9 In the video the screeching only starts after 30seconds and and then lasts for 30seconds. If it was a motor/bearing/pulley then I would expect the noise to...

    Building Regulations Certificate

    thaks for your help. The RSJ in the through lounge cannot be seen - only on the photos I took. I'm not too concerned with the chimeny breasts as I know they can be seen in the loft and structural surveyor confirmed all ok. Will they issue a cert? I read somewhere they might not issue one...

    Building Regulations Certificate

    hmm, the issue will be for example, the LA coming and asking for all of the plaster work to be taken off to see the RSJ or the concrete lintel - it could also take more than 3 months to get it all tick boxed off

The...

Ideally I would need a couple of different colours but they only seem...

    Water entering cellar after rain

    Is there a way to stop the water coming in without the pump? There is also water now at the front of the cellar so the pump will probably not stop that?

    Water entering cellar after rain

    Hi, There is a hole in the cellar floor and water is now coming up in full flow after the downpour. Any solution to stop it or do I have to wait for the water table to go down? I'm thinking tanking slurry but obviously won't stay with the water flowing out.

    Thank you - all makes sense, I've arranged for the EICR and then the consumer unit to be installed. Yes, I'll need the EICR as it is for a tenanted property.
