    Shower tray - ply on boards or reinforce subfloor?

    I just put 9 mm ply over the chipboard flooring, having screwed the chipboard down (if replacing it) and then screwing the plywood down at 6 inch intervals each way, but obviously you've got an older house. I then fix the shower using wall board adhesive and push the tray onto it and leave it...

    Installing Shower Wall Board Question

    Not used shower wall board before. I'm preparing the en-suite in my son's new house to fit shower wall board (acrylic) to the 3 walls around it. It will be across one end of the room and the tray will be 800 x 1400 with the acrylic board on all 3 sides. The shower tray (Mira with upstands)...

    The great slow down ...

    I think it would be a good idea to make the driving test harder. Personally I think it should be at least as hard as the standard police test, with a similar requirement to do a commentary for a portion of the test. The police driving course focuses a lot on hazards and constant all round...

    Bosch Logixx 7 Washing full of black rubbery or oily bits

    Cheers, thanks. Yes knocking noises on a test wash support that view. It's probably quite old now so time for another I thjnk

    Bosch Logixx 7 Washing full of black rubbery or oily bits

    My wife has just emptied her Bosch Logixx 7 washing machine and the washing is covered in what appear to be black oily rubbery bits. There's some of what looks the same which appears to be burnt on an area of the edge of the spinning drum nearest the door, over about 20 or 30 degrees of the...

    TV Signal Break Up Problem

    Thanks @RandomGrinch. It is indeed very loose. I took the top of the tuner unit but it is impossible to access the underside of the socket. I have found a replacement (used) main board which includes this unit on eBay. Only a little over £20, I've taken the plunge and bought it. I'll simply...

    TV Signal Break Up Problem

    Thanks for that. I did have a quick look inside the TV by removing the rear cover. The aerial socket appears to be mounted on a large rectangular silver metal casing with numerous feet which are soldered to the circuit board. The solder connections to the socket itself appear to be inside the...

    TV Signal Break Up Problem

    I have a small 19" Samsung TV in my kitchen. It is fed from a 6 way splitter in our loft. Recently we noticed that the signal had deteriorated and the picture and sound was continually breaking up. I checked and made sure that the aerial lead was secure and would transmit a good signal...

    @sparkymarka Would I be able to set it up to use an app to control it without having to use the maker's cloud facility?

    What alarm would replace my Scantronic 9448+ but allow me to add wifi connectivity

    Hi everyone. Still haven't solved this conundrum and TBQH put off making a decision. But it now needs sorting. I'd like to put a new box in which I can access via my mobile to deal with any activations and if necessary reset it away from home. I will stick with the current hardwire sensors...

    Aqualisa Replacement Cartridge Urgent Help Required

    I'm sorry to that the problem with the hot water coming through when the shower is off is happening again. In fact the shower came on of its own accord during the night. We've tried taking it out and replacing it again but it without success. The hot water is running regardless as to whether...

    Aqualisa Replacement Cartridge Urgent Help Required

    Hi Steve Thanks for that. Took it apart again and indeed the washer had come adrift. We re-seated it and put it all back together and it is working fine, except that you need to turn the knob anti-clockwise to turn it on and vice versa to off, which seems to me to be counter-intuitive. Is...

    Aqualisa Replacement Cartridge Urgent Help Required

    Hi everyone, had to replace the valve on the shower in my son’s house today. I’ve done it before on my own house and wasn’t expecting any issues. His heating system is a Potterton with a boiler with a pressure tank. I turned the water off at the mains, but also at the tap adjacent to the...

    What alarm would replace my Scantronic 9448+ but allow me to add wifi connectivity

    5 PIRS and the front door. I'm thinking of adding 3 external cameras, 2 rear and 1 front probably separately but am open to advice.

    What alarm would replace my Scantronic 9448+ but allow me to add wifi connectivity

    I have a simple wired house alarm system, 5 PIRs and a front door. The box needs replacing as the key pad is failing. I'd like a straight replacement with wifi connectivity so that if it activates I can get a notification. What would you recommend please?
